How did YOU get so poor?

Well, for one thing – you never really worked for REAL Money. And by “REAL” – I mean: something with INTRINSIC VALUE equal or higher to the ENERGY/WORK you put in to earn it.
Gold takes A LOT of energy to produce. And I’m not just talking about the amount of human effort it takes to dig it out of the ground. Gold, you see – can ONLY be created when a STAR EXPLODES. Yes, every single atom of Gold on this planet is a result of our previous “sun” – going super nova. There may even have been two of them, before our present system took shape. You simply CANNOT have Gold – unless a you have a SUPERNOVA. (The same is true for Silver, Palladium, Platinum, Uranium, Rhodium etc.) You may be able to create some artificially in the lab – like Plutonium is, through various neutron-induced fission processes – but it would almost certainly cost MORE (energy-wise) than what we already have from supernova residue. So, nuclear alchemy aside – the Gold we have – is always going to be that which was created some 5 billion or so, years ago – when the previous sun – died.

This natural limit – GUARANTEES its SCARCITY.

And it is its SCARCITY which GUARANTEES its INTRINSIC VALUE.

Granted, in the future we may find Gold and other precious metals on planets like Mars, or even perhaps on one of Jupiter’s moons. But that can never really significantly affect its scarcity, here on Earth.

What interest me is this: For centuries various cultures have worshiped the Sun – unbeknown to them – the Maker of Gold (i.e. their money.)
But today, human beings have come now to worship (“serve”- if you prefer) the maker of their modern, fiat currency – the Federal Reserve. Also, for the most part – unknowingly.
No wonder the Money Masters want to retain their God-like status in the world.
It’s rather nice being worshiped.
