Re: Videos, Books, and Propaganda
I watched about 1 minute. I'm not going to watch the whole thing.
Schiff (the source) essentially argues, through the content (of the video) that the private sector will have to save the financial system nationally if not globally since the governments all inflated and thus debased the currency and are thus charging the public too much to utilize their product.
Bullshit.
The private sector has been buying politicians, particularly Republicans, to enable them to rip of the American workers. Those workers are as productive as ever, but most of what they have produced has been going to the top.
No, the wealthy won't have to save America. Rather, Americans will need to take back those ill gotten gains from the wealthy thieves.
As Percy said in a recent post, you are confused and gullible. You worship the thieves who are ripping you off.

Re: Now that you mention it
But here is the kickr. Humans are not a solid bedrock. Only rocks are solid bedrock.
When you are hungry, try eating rock. In the meantime, I'll go buy some real food from humans.

Re: its The Marketplace, stupid
Currency used to be based on a bedrock value.
That's an illusion. There is no such thing as a bedrock value.

Re: Videos, Books, and Propaganda
Only fools believe that the dollar is determining the value of gold.
Supply and demand determine the value of gold.

Re: its The Marketplace, stupid
Hard assets are more likely to have a set value that is at a bedrock level.
Do you have a measure of hardness of an asset? Is there a level that can compare when something is at bedrock level?
They are unlikely to ever become worthless, as can a fiat currency or a bitcoin.
Gold could become near worthless.
