Selling fiat money for gold and silver?Submitted by truefictions on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 17:51
Knowing that gold and silver is money, shouldn't we be advocating selling our funny money monopolized paper for gold and silver?
The question is, can you BUY real money?
Should we be screaming: "buy gold and silver!" or "sell your funny money for gold and silver!"?
Isn't the one doing the "buying" really the one "letting go" of their gold and silver in exchange for the silly paper?
(I am still working on deprogramming myself and the language we use everyday is becoming increasingly important in the way I form my perspectives. Do we really buy anything with fiat currencies? Are we in fact not making an exchange based on debt with a third party known as the government and entering in to a 3 way trade agreement?)
Throw your perspective in the hat and lets see what we can come up with.
