Editor’s note: For those needing perspective on whether to buy gold or silver, the following is food for thought from Capt. William E. Simpson. He is the author of The Nautical Prepper and Dark Stallions – Legend of the Centaurians, and has been my guest on DestinySurvival Radio. He occasionally contributes articles here for DestinySurvival. …
Do Americans really need to worry about a financial collapse in world money markets leading to national rioting and chaos? History shows it has happened before in many countries around the world and many so-called experts say we do, but they are leaving-out the most important details.
Of course when the media voices the opinions of the ‘experts’ that alone builds some worry into financial markets. Some astute observers may ask if this is by design and if by doing so, they intentionally create niche markets for the products and services they sell related to gold and silver hedges and financial advice. Still, even if this is by design, the facts on the ground in regard to record national debt and quantitative easing are of themselves creating a situation where instability is a natural result; going too far out on any limb will ultimately cause the stress on the limb to exceed its breaking strength.
Central banks and equity markets around the world today are operating with hair-triggers and nobody wants to be the last one out when the music stops, and the music must stop soon. There is no such thing as unlimited debt and growth; corrections must and will come, one way or another. And since the markets have been manipulated to keep them afloat, when the correction (polite term) comes, it will now be far more devastating.
The people (elitist-globalists) who are directly and indirectly holding all of world debt, $20-trillions of which is owed by the U.S. Government) will at some point have to be re-paid, one way or another, and therein is the big worry. Of course at the same time, the debt holders also see that the odds of these debts being repaid, which have already been re-structured many times, are growing dimmer by the day.
So these same elitists are setting themselves up to profit from a coming world crash. They are now marketing and selling their gold and silver, which they acquired at market-lows, and are now selling it back to the masses at market highs, while they quietly diversify into other essential commodities that people and governments will require. The point of this visionary strategy is to be in a position to wait-out a market collapse and the ensuing chaos, and then during that chaos an instability, buy back all of the gold and silver at new market lows. But why would gold and silver go into the tank? Some may ask this question, and there is a very good reason why that may happen related to market demand.
First of all, we must remove the selective perception that the marketing psychologists have instilled into the masses via media; “gold and silver yield security” in tough times. For average people, this is false. For the purposes of intergovernmental trade, yes there is some logic to this, if there is an agreed-upon value for these metals. It’s important to keep in mind that the intrinsic value of these metals only relates to their industrial, medical and vanity jewelry uses, nothing more. But through the use of crafty psychological marketing, the elite have built a perception that gold and silver are now more valuable than the things people really need like water, food, shelter and other items that actually support life. Gold and silver are actually little more than illusions of wealth created by highly intelligent people who know how to manipulate the masses, as they have for millennia. And as history shows, for those who take the time to learn it, there is a cyclic pattern used by elitists who have extremely long-term wealth and power building models that are literally generational in nature, where one generation sets things into motion and the next generation follows the plan and reaps the benefits. By keeping the masses financially, and educationally oppressed (much of the brainwashing starts in school), the masses have great difficulty in emulating a generational wealth building strategy. Adding to the advantages of the elitists over the masses is that they have been employing their wealth-building strategies for many hundreds of years… this is why we see the same names over and over again as being the wealthiest people in the world.
