Im not sure on all of this

But it really does make you think about what money really is. FRNs are not money they are monetized debt. They are printed out of nothing and endowed with a value that is not backed up by anything other than faith (which is crumbling across the globe, not just here). If the fed can do this, why cant we? On the other hand if you take something of value for nothing you are no better than this den of thieves we call a government.
Does theft from a thief make you just? Or just another thief? though FRNs are worthless, you can trade them for things that -are- worth something. The fact that these FRN's are subject to change in 'value' leads me to unload as many of them as I can into tangible assets that I can trade later on. These things that I buy are what I consider to be true payment for my labor.
No one knows where this is all going. Anything could be made 'valuable' via its supply and demand and thus become 'money'. gold and silver might not be worth much in the future for all we know. Perhaps all these borrow and spend people have really gotten something for nothing?
If you have control over the supply of something you have control of its worth, so long as there is demand. Maybe this is why research into things like algae biodiesel has never gained much traction. Organisms that create fuel grade oil which in turn would fuel their cultivation and transport..
Energy could be thought of as money too. The energy you take to perform a task which is now done by a machine powered by an energy source.
I think we REALLY need to take control over our energy sources so that no one entity can manipulate supply.
The fact that fiat money is unstable may be valuable in advancing REAL money and freedom from these bankers who have entirely too much control. Theyre playing this like a game of monopoly where players keep slipping themselves more cash while no one is looking.
