I would not "die" defending my "gold"... in fact, I would probably not die for any ideology of any sort!
Not because I am scared of dying, simply because it is not worth it. If you were able to "earn" your gold once, you could do it again.
Once we are having to "protect" our gold/possessions with guns, and amo, I think things are already FUBAR.
So, I would rather hit the road, and hole up somewhere out of the range of confiscatory agents, rogue bandits and whomever else is going around killing everyone who "resists" their plundering.
Sorry, bro, I choose LIFE! I do think you have the right to do what you wish with yours, and to protect that which is yours, but you won't see me doing it!
Actually, you won't even see me when the SHTF. I will be in a safe place, protecting my "gold" with my mind... possibly in a BRAINWALLET!
Just plain 'Happy'about the direction the world is taking! Especially if we live to reach LEV [Longevity Escape Velocity]
