There is often merit in considering our insignificance in the universe. Each individual life is but a speck of fleeting flame in the eternal slumber of the universe.
More relevantly one may also consider the insignificance of a single human life in the span of time that is and will be occupied by humanity. A greater share, to be sure, than that occupied in the vast universe, but again showing how small we are.
A final condensation of consideration occurs if one considers the weight of a single human life at a specific point in time, or perhaps a brief part of our span in life.
This last view is the most relevant in considering human action in the face of the world.
Now it must be pointed out that in this final contemplation that there are some men who have more influence on our little planet than others.
Most of us however in our individual capacity will have little effect on the tide of history, and only inasmuch as we as a larger group act in concert can we sway the tides.
I bring this up, not to belittle our worth, but to point out that the choices we make, as individuals are largely inconsequential excepting to our own fates.
In this respect, fortune favours those most who can glimpse which way the tide is flowing, by observing the choices of those few, those giants, whose actions hold much greater power than the average man, and act in anticipation thereof, or concert therein.
Today I wish to share with you that as regards the future of our economic system, the giants have already made a choice. Their choice was made a long time ago and they have acted upon the inevitability of the tides that change.
You see, gold is once again going to move to the center of our economic system. Most of it is already held in the hands of these giants and they are not letting go, until the tide turns. All they await at present is the inevitable shifting of the moon (the passage of time) which will herald a turn in the tides.
Know this, your choice in the regard does not matter. Whether you choose to buy some gold to protect your savings for the coming transition will not affect the coming of the tides.
It is my sincere wish that you also protect what little you have from the ravages of the super-storm that is coming, but, if you do not, do not think that the storm will not come.
Your choice makes little difference.
The point is a choice must be made. More wealth = more votes. Every dollar must choose, and the giants have chosen. Gold won.
