Gold and the 'R' Decade: Repression, Riot and Revolution

Politics / Gold and Silver 2012 Feb 21, 2012 - 06:32 AM GMT

By: Bob_Kirtley

Politics Repression is in full swing, rioting is spreading and revolution is almost upon us. The next ten years will bring extraordinary change which hopefully will be for the better, however, there is the small matter of getting through the worst of it first.

By the time 2022 rolls round there will be a gold backed Dinar, a silver backed Peso and a number of forms of digital currency led by Google's vary own cyber Dollar.


The current fiat currencies, much loved by the sovereign states will have been consigned to the history books. Government policies will be dictated by a conglomeration of international big business. There will be no need for elections as all matters will be 'managed' for you. Drugs will have been legalized and television will be in 3D, as once proud nations lapse into a sedated trance of apathetic lethargy. Birth control will be compulsory with child birth limited by a quota system. The occasional outburst of dissent will be dealt with by an international rapid response force. The words liberty and freedom will be will no longer appear in dictionaries, just as the words 'English Channel' will not appear on future maps of Europe as the Brits will acquiesce to calling it by its European regional name of 'La Manche'

To a political bureaucrat the above probably reads like some sort of administrative utopia, to us it reads like our worst nightmare.

When social exclusion reaches epidemic proportions and we hit 'Peak Poverty' levels, revolution will be the last resort.

The situation beyond the next decade is nigh on impossible to predict, we can however let our imagination take the positive road and hope that tiny pockets of individuals will push for a more independent way of life. Similar to the movement that favours organic produce over the allegedly less nourishing everyday offerings from the chain stores.

Our concern though is for the next decade, how do we get through it, how do we survive, because its coming down to a matter of survival. The safety net of social services that the western world as grown accustomed to will no longer exist in any useful form, as the money is long gone, its over to you now.

Ripping up the patio in your back yard in order to create a veggie garden to supplement your own well being is the sort of thing that springs to mind, but we will leave that subject to those who are way better qualified than us to cover.

What we can do though, given that our premise encompasses the demise of paper currencies in their current form, is look to alternative stores of wealth.

Have you noticed the recent uptick in robberies in the world of fine arts. There are many who consider art as a store of wealth and therefore a good investment. Again, this is not an area we are familiar with, so if you do take that route, do get some seriously good advice. Classic cars are the choice of some investors and can be fun, however, with petrol prices being what they are, using them would be somewhat limited. Both of the above investments are not that easy to sell, should you you need to do so, you may have to wait awhile in order to achieve your price targets.

As you have probably guessed by now we are heading down our well worn path in terms of how we deal with preparing for the future. We favour the precious metals, both gold and silver. As we see it the prices are known for both on a 24/7 basis, with small bars and coins offering sufficient liquidity for most retail investors to be able sell at short notice, should it become necessary to do so. And we do mean physical gold that you can see and touch, a paper certificate carries with it additional third party risk, that you must be fully familiar with if this is your investment vehicle of choice.

The second part of our strategy is to invest in quality gold and silver producers, although we must remain vigilant as to the many risks inherent in the mining process and the ever growing risk of government intervention as sovereign states seek a larger slice of the pie. We will not hesitate to dispose of our stocks should the outlook become onerous and impinge on the profitability of even our most favoured companies. It is extremely dangerous to fall in love with a stock, especially a mining stock.

Finally, as opportunities present themselves, we will sally forth with the occasional options trade, as volatility can be rewarding as our record clearly indicates.

The implementation of your survival plan is down to you and you alone, so please don't delay, start today and lay those foundations.
