Well, as far as geology goes, they say the flattest lands tend to be the remnants of the oldest mountain ranges. Possibly from being mined to death?
And not in our recent past either. Its hard to believe that our current structure is the absolute peak of human civilization.
Its the nature of the beast to play your cards close to your chest and never tip your hand. Maybe why insider trading is 'allegedly' illegal for
most folks. Bombshell discoveries and information need to be kept under wraps until the ideal way to exploit it becomes finalized, my opinion, very
close to the truth though.
The one part of the OP that really nails it down for me, my reasoning that I believe it, the solid barrel of silver. If its true, it still exists I
think. Mining is not the kind of business anyone can just start up by themselves on an even minor scale. It was probably even more structured and
ruthless back in the 20's. That said, company involved is still there, most likely absorbed by someone bigger though. They won't publish things like
solid barrel shapes of silver. Someone along the chain might want a piece, you know? Investors maybe? Employees?
My point... Shrewd managers, ruthless execs, will quash their subordinate's finds with a bone thrown here and there. Just to shut people up. People,
and 'the public' for sure, need to be kept in the dark. What good could come from the people knowing the truth? One big dent in THEIR pockets.
Prove me wrong... If knowledge is power, but everyone has the same knowledge, What is my power? Money, greed, and graft. But, if everyone knew, the
power ultimately becomes diminished. Because people along the way are going to want a piece of the pie. You don't get insanely rich by sharing the
pie, you shut up the thinkers by divvying small slices, spoon fed if you will. Need to know basis.
I really think that most people should not be surprised that the tactics won't change. That is, tell people just enough of what YOU THINK THEY WANT
TO HEAR, just as long as they shut up and leave it alone, hopefully. Remember that they do right to themselves and there will be no moral or
catharthis expressed until its on the gallows pole. Probably never happen though.
