I have written about this before and have already argued that we humans place the value on money AND GOLD. Gold is useless to most of us other then to look at, you cannot eat it, you cannot breath it, it does not cure any diseases, etc.
There is no point in having a gold standard other then to make the people that have lots of gold even richer. Where do you think the government is going to buy or get the gold needed to sit in the banks for a gold standard? I wonder where most of the gold is at already...hmm it could not be sitting in bank could it, so WTF is the point of a gold standard again? Having the government and the average taxpaying person owing even more money and being farther in debt...that sounds like a great idea.
Another reason of a gold standard is to give people that have accumulated more then they need a better chance of maintaining their advantage. It makes it harder for the central government to print out money and devalue the currency already in circulation. It would effectively take away their money and make them have the same amount of money as everyone else. The talks of a gold standard are no more then a ploy to make even more money for the rich, as if they did not have enough already. Who had the money to buy all the gold? They will not stop until they are "nobility" with undisputed power and control.
They would rather us kill them or steal it from them...like they do to each other versus any of the options I have tried. That is why you here so many rich cry about it, lie about it, and try to B.S. about it, they fear it. It would be the same as "stealing" their money and there would not be a thing they could do about it besides them cashing in stockpiles of gold, aluminum, etc. What does Goldman and Sachs have a warehouse full of and why?
