This report supports the argument against gold. It shows gold's value is not up to you, Mr. Individual or Ms. Individual. Yet AGAIN we are seeing a reason centrality currency, gold here, just doesn't work.
Abstract thinking exercise, guys: What is the sense, the point, of putting your attention, your mind, to something outside you and who you want to transact with?
Extension of that exercise: Where does freedom come from -- inside (read: the individual) or outside (read: something besides the individual)?
Whatever thing used in transaction to referee that transaction should come from the people in the transaction. If a mandated currency, ESPECIALLY one outside our government, enters a person's life, to the degree he uses it is the degree he is a re-actor to it, the degree he is dependent on it.
Mr. DPer and Ms. DPer, you always -- always -- will have NO say in gold's value: You always -- always -- will be subject to those who assign its value. Gold isn't the issue, really, the issue is "Centrality's Currency." Today gold is centrality's currency. Tomorrow something other than gold is centrality's currency. Avoid centrality's currency.
EDIT: I should say, Avoid centrality's currency that brings the United States into world governance. Let Americans focus on America/the US. Let's strengthen our dollar. From there, we can route out evil in our government, because saying government is bad dismisses what caused our government and what caused it to take on the activities that it has, activities that oppress the individual. I disbelieve government is bad, but I do believe today's US government is bad.
