GOD, Guns, GOLD and Groceries

[I'd] like to address is the complete FALLACY regarding our monetary system.

The eco-doomsday sages all seem to think that we should all be debt free and have all of our investments in GOLD.

Oh, REALLY?

So there is "worth" in gold?

Says who?

This is the biggest problem with humans today.
GOLD? Because it makes a nice shiny ring?

GOLD? Because it is a heavy metal?

GOLD? Because it can be used in electronic devices that further enslave us?

Because it makes a nice tooth filling and is non toxic?

NO!

Because THEY told us so.
[GOLD] is as much a "fiat system" as paper money.

Paper or wood (money even) can be used for at least as many beneficial human uses as gold. I won't go in to them here.

But my point is, a medium of exchange is as valuable as the exchangers want to make it.

Things of "REAL VALUE" such as drinking water, uncontaminated food, shelter, warmth in the cold or cold in the warmth, security and peace of mind for yourself and your children, are PRICELESS.

The most beautiful and pristeen and largest diamond in the world PALES beside my children, my hopes for them and my desire for all of humanity to understand that simple phrase.

Peace.

These priceless words came from a comment by truthman (presentation, emphasis, links and any typos are mine), posted at 911blogger .

Many thanks to my dear friend vper1, the artist behind our banner of freedom, for bringing it to my attention, and to my friend, Doc, who inspired the title God, Guns, Gold, and Groceries.

Gold is NOT the solution for our exchange system.

What is the solution?

a PUBLICLY OWNED medium of exchange, whatever it may be, that remains just that and nothing more.

As long as it is NOT transformed into a PRIVATE COMMODITY, we'll be okay.

In the meantime, use your groceries to sustain you, and

your guns only as a last resort.

Put your LOVE in your family and friends, and
your TRUST in GOD and eachother.

The Four Gs explained

GOD

If you cannot look around you, and at least as a minimum, understand that this universe was created at some point in time, then you are lost. Knowing there is a creator is your foundation.

GUNS

Used as a tool to protect yourself and loved ones, they are invaluable. If you don't like guns, that's ok, just understand that when you call on the police or military to protect yourself, you are also asking them to bring their guns.

GOLD

Gold has at least a 5,000 year history of success as a medium of exchange. Every fiat currency, however, has failed eventually. Gold is not a panacea, just a lot better than a paper promise.

The concept of gold is what I was trying to convey. There are things that shine brighter, and are vastly more important, like the love of family and friends. Never fail them and they will never fail you.

GROCERIES

You don't have to be Mormon to understand the wisdom of storing food. Stored food is the best unemployment insurance you can have. It is also the only investment you can make that can be eaten in hard times.

The Four Gs are a foundation that can give something miraculous - HOPE. Without that, why exist?

Problem IS, as I see it, you are gonna have to get any number of Popes and whatnot aboard to make the changes from privately held currency value to this publicly owned exchange...would be wonderful wouldn't it?

I've been trying to think about that. what would be the ultimate medium of exchange.

Gold is a finit source on this planet and will run out. Plus it leave toxic pits behind. what could work when gold runs out?

It seems the only thing that is really useful and can be created (through labor) is energy.

How could we make energy a medium of exchange?

Ruby,

All we need is a corruption-proof, interest-free, accounting system where only a designated amount of credit is issued each year.

It's as simple as that.

I haven't read Louis Even's book on Social Credit, yet, but I'm guessing that's what it's all about.
