Yawn. Yet another gold and silver shill seeks to exploit and capitalise on any crisis and/or challenge faced by the world. So what else is new. Same old, same old, pump and dump of precious metals.

It's not as cynical as that, for the most part. Most of these gold bugs are religious Protestants who hate big government and fiat money and consider it deeply sinful. They consider gold and silver to be righteous and God given stores of wealth, and God's wrath will inevitably fall on the current "Marxist" setup.

Nothing too outlandish in that worldview to be honest!
The money lenders in the temple springs to mind for some reason.

Indeed in fact all orangies have a gold stash, usually buried at the foot of a burning cross...

It is a bit outlandish, as it shows a complete lack of understanding of the world as it really exists. Any kind of return to a gold standard would cause massive deflation and economic devastation. But these fellows with their few gold or silver coins wouldn't mind that happening - because they think they will be alright.

The world as it is, exists because the rules have been flouted for decades.
It's been funny money since Bretton Wood's and the creation of the Petro Dollar.
All things run their course!
And yes the reset will be catalysmic.
