The main problem with the gold standard is that the gold is all in the hands of the people who made this world the broken slave planet it is.
Besides- it doesn't really have much value. Copper is worth more per pound in usability than gold is.

Monies is the means to capture the energies of the people in an exchangeable medium. It's the ultimate pimp, whoring us all out for the slaves we believe ourselves to be. Think you're a master? Opt out. Go for it. Only masters are the belief originators; system architects.
In a way, speaking of your personal value for time is a lot like monies as a collective store of time... your time. Each coin a link in the shackles that bind.
Here's my beef with bitcoin. It requires energy into the system to create value. People, instead of solving scientific problems folding@home, waste their compute power for pennies... then ppl think they can get rich investing, and the miners cash out. Who wins here? Surely there's a more clever way of going about this.

In Higher Mind, there is no gold backed, or resource backed money. There is no money at all.
And I denounce slavery.
Don't vote either. I will not wear their karma or vote for anything unless we take back our world and its both Mother/Equality and Father/Freedom, wedded together and clean high technology, without any need for slavery, and everyone lives their joy, develops their skills, and those who can't are equal in every way.
There is no need for any of this. We could have our beamships in our backyard.
Their traps aren't going to endure, there are teams already dealing with that. And I just keep picturing saturn and even sirius b like a big basket ball, dribble it into the black holes, 1 for earth and 0 for the predators.

I would be surprised to hear that America even knows what it is doing in terms of the global economy. There are some that are pushing hard to capitalise every little bit they can, otherwise it looks like they are doing their best just to hang on and keep the machines running.
The NWO crowd is already onto America's bag of tricks, for now the USD is America's responsibility.

Today on Off the Grid, I sound off in a new Gov't 101 about how we still use the banking system today that caused the Great Depression. Banks keep only a fraction of our deposited cash on reserve while they go out and lend the rest of it to others on credit in order to make a profit. All of that debt we’re in essentially creates more and more money out of thin air. So money isn’t real!
Do you think it’s time we get off this system and move toward a new type of money, like Bitcoin? Let me know.
What was wrong with the gold standard? something that had/has an intrinsic value? or is because gold stored is being half-inched all the time by some method or the other? I don't even have to be conspiratorial because I see some countries looking for their gold back that is supposed to be stored, and they aren't getting it!
BTW take that video banner at the top of the screen off, it's making your head look funny.
