Investments based on blind faith are likely to ruin you.
I met activists from Green Peace recruiting members at an event today in Colchester. I said to these activists I would have nothing to do with them because of the disaster where one of their staff speculated in casino types of speculation on money markets losing their members millions of pounds. The activists were dishonest to me denying the staff member was gambling membership money, but then I checked the news sources again and found it was gambling that lost the charity its money.
It would seem that if we could send all the bankers on a one-way ticket to Mars this world would reverse many of its challenges traced to the door of bankers and their greed, gambling and debt.
The world lives in a trap of dishonesty and fantasy, only valid whilst we all believe and participate in it. The paper, base metal and numbers on a computer database we call money has no assets backing it, but pots of debt that the bankers move around the planet to maintain this vast illusion of nothingness. If people stopped believing in paper currency the billionaires would see their piles of money rendered worthless overnight.
If you can see beyond the illusion, a jar of honey is worth more than a $1 million in paper currency. A jar of honey is tangible, you can feed your body with it, but paper currency can only feed your body as a medium of exchange for a jar of honey if you have faith and opinion the paper is worth something, but in reality nothing but debt supports it.
Those with wisdom might foresee that the game of moving pots of money around the globe is coming to an end with serious consequences for everyone, which means anything valued on paper such as shares, currency or options will become worthless. It is to tangible things that won’t vanish in value due to blind faith such as land, food, solar energy production, water and buildings that will ensure security if the economic situation changes for the worse. You cannot eat paper money, but you can eat the potatoes you grow in the garden.
