Gold, Silver & Diamonds
- By Bahram Maskanian
In a real practical world, all the so-called precious and highly over priced metals such as gold and silver, precious stones such as diamonds are completely useless. These commodities are just another way of the criminal Bankers and Wall Street goons picking our pockets and robbing us, the people.
Allow me to demonstrate:
Let say for argument sake that is the year 2015 and due to human species ignorance and inability to make the right decisions, stop polluting and destroying our one, and only home; Planet Earth, we have passed the point of no return. The basic foods, clean water, fruits, vegetables and anything else that we need to survive are in short supply and have become scarce and nearly impossible to find.
You are a filthy rich person, with pockets full of these so-called precious metals and stones. You have already eaten all you had in your freezers and refrigerators. All of the greedy food merchants you know are all out of stock and in search of more for themselves and to sell to rich folks like you at exuberant prices. But no one is selling, why is that?
Now, let say that I am a small family farmer, who takes pride in his work by treating the land with love, care and respect, that Mother Nature rightfully deserves, growing organic produce for my family.
You show up at my door offering me your pockets full of precious metals and stones asking for some groceries in return. And split second after I refuse to sell and reject your precious metals and stones, the hard reality would hit you right in the face, that you were a fool, to believe that you can buy your way out of the problems created by the very same behavior that convinced you that the answer and solution to all of your problems is more gold.
Now you have finally woken up, and learned that you cannot eat precious metals and stones. Realizing that wealth, greed and power are highly short sighted and blind to the harm and destruction they cause.
We MUST never forget that the KEY to human species success first and foremost is our natural inclination of collaboration, cooperation, community building and maintaining, thus generating that warm loving and supportive unifying feelings that could move mountains and heal the world.
