Perhaps I hold a minority opinion on this subject, but I believe gold (and other "valuable" metals) holds no real value.
People in this country have been buying these metals for several years now out of fear of a collapse of the U.S. Dollar. But I can't seem to find the
logic in that. These metals are no different than the paper currency we all have figured out is utterly worthless.
Lets say every currency on the planet collapses today. The common belief is that those with these metals will be okay for at least a little while,
depending on how much of it they own. Why is that? What if "they" manipulate the market by drastically dropping the value of these metals? Or what if
they stop accepting it as payment altogether? All you're left with is a shiny brick.
There's nothing naturally valuable about these metals that can't be manipulated or denied, nor do "they" even need these metals to preserve their
wealth and power. They already hold all of the land, all of the food supply, all of the energy supply, and all of the laws in their hands. Money - of
ANY form - is simply a means of control.
If you want to possess a truly natural value system that can't be denied, learn some survival skills and some "hands-on" skills that will be needed in
the event of a global financial collapse. These currencies are artificial constructs. Turning yourself into a valuable survival resource is your only
