Underneath the radar, the move to Gold continues; it is incipient, but it is there.
We are still at the stage of wrong questions producing wrong answers, but the questions at least concern Gold.
The type of questioning is along the lines of ‘how will Gold be better than paper (notes that represent debt)?’ Translated that means ‘how will money be better than no money – worse, anti-money?’. It is a nonsensical question. But at least it is a start.
Will change come soon? No way. Though the situation is very desperate, that desperation will have to manifest in the minds of those politicians with power before anything changes.
That is not close; they are not appointed because of their innovative thinking.
Having said that, talks are now happening. Yep, it’s at the periphery, but it is happening.
Change in democracies happens from the periphery inwards – centripetally, not centrifugally. When ‘leaders’ like Cameron, Obama and Merkel do ride roughshod over the will of the electorate, they are disposed of – eventually. The common belief amongst politicians is that we seek leaders. We most certainly we do not, we seek those who will abide by the wishes of the broad electorate. The electorate seeks faithful followers, not leaders. That is why Donald Trump will be inaugurated President of the US. He best represented the views of Americans. That is why, so far, Theresa May is succeeding as UK PM.
The centripetal Gold force is quietly in motion in both the UK and the US. It is coming inward from more thoughtful members of the existing political establishment. At this stage they have very little support below or above them, but that is quietly building.
The move toward Gold is discreet because it is natural that those at the forefront would want to keep a low profile at this point (imagine the outcry of the media that is always looking for a new target for vitriol).
Far more has been achieved over the last seven years than is apparent to most.
