"Gold is the money of kings. Silver is the money of gentleman. Barter is the money of peasants. Debt is the money of slaves."
Gold has always been accepted as "money" around the world for thousands of years. It has saved the Jew crossing a border away from certain death. It was what protected a Confederate southerner from the debt collectors when the paper money went bad. It's what preserved wealth and allowed many in doomed nations rebuild after war and total destruction. Fools will say "you can't eat gold" but gold is not meant for eating - it's meant to hold value so one can start anew and rebuild their lives. It isn't subject to the whims of those who run the monetary printing presses. In the end - It is another tool for survival.
