Why They Don't Care
About Your Gold and Silver
By Dr. Jeffrey Lewis
"Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood
of every one of its members."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
The low hanging fruit of retirement assets
currently overwhelm any return on investment for punishing gold and silver
investors. This is in addition to the very liquid numismatic and graded coin
markets - which add another layer to the complexity of enforcing or confiscating
Precious metals are something that a person
should buy/trade in order to protect themselves from widespread economic
collapse. Any macro view of the economy reveals an ultra slow motion form of
this playing out as you read these words.
A declining workforce, high real unemployment,
high inflation, unprecedented levels of world debt, combined with a never ending
stream of poisonous intervention - are all evidence of collapse.
We are a problem-focused species. We are
obsessed with the belief that we must do something. Yet all of these
economic-social issues, like most that make up the fabric of experience, unfold
in their own time. A careful review of history through a critical prism will
reveal this unfolding as a series of long term waves.
Many continue to evaluate gold and silver as
commodities to be traded on a day-to-day basis. However, that's not what they
are. They are, instead, a hedge against the idiocy and the arrogance of central
banks; the poster children for intervention - for doing something when the
motive is unclear even to themselves.
Thankfully, we live in a world where the
largest global central bank (the Federal Reserve) has largely consigned the
metals to the "survivalists”.
No sanctions yet against ownership. No tax
penalties for owning physical.
For new investors hoping to accumulate the
monetary assets, the state of price rigged markets is a paradoxically welcomed
phenomenon. However, the opportunity suffers from a pluralistic ignorance
sparked by artificially low prices. Most observers look at it as a deal too good
to be true and, therefore, move on.
One only needs to imagine the precariousness
of physical demand surging on the heels of lower prices. Not only the U.S. Mint,
but the jewelry industry reports significant (if not record) demand in a market
that should be severely diminished, given all the downside momentum and horrible
Many assume that the day will come when they
seek to punish precious metals owners. However, the punishment was put in place
long ago by suppressing the price and forcing a debt backed currency on an
unsuspecting world citizenry by decree.
The level of propaganda-fueled confusion seems
to have reached heightened levels. The economic recovery meme is reaching an
effective saturation point. We are passing through minefields of dangerous
inflection points. The politics are turning against those with the courage to
question and shout out the truth; these will be quickly punished, silenced, and
relegated to the withering and growing mass of the lost and disenfranchised.
How Will We Know When This Time Is
When the prices offered at the retail level
return to natural equilibrium, there will be no question - only a very different
brand of anxiety. When retail level pays no attention to the paper price quoted
from the futures.
Imagine this is the context of technology:
Suspending disbelief for a moment and envisioning a world where financial
collapse is connected. Yet it is not completely destructive to the underlying
economies and social fabric. Science and technology will not be forgotten. In
that sense, a bank that accepted gold and silver on deposit and issued currency
using alternative or crypto currencies may not be too farfetched. Is it any
wonder that JP Morgan not only holds a sizable silver hoard against its short
position, but also a crypto currency patent?
Inflation and Propaganda
One key to propaganda is keeping things from
the heart of society - figuratively or politically, but also literally (in the
case of serious inflation that causes food and energy crisis).
If mild or even moderate inflation cannot be
identified by the majority, then it will not be addressed.
Those with the courage to question and speak
out are quickly silenced, swallowed up by the political vacuum left in the wake
of a withering and growing mass class of the lost and disenfranchised.
The greatest tax is the indirect one. It is
the wealth task that is destroying the middle class from the outside in, both
financially and spiritually.
Sequestering the middle class and taking aim
at retirement assets is much more profound and fruitful than precipitating a
currency crisis by orienting too many minds toward precious metals.
