As I, like the rest of most of my friends, gape in fearful wonder at the financial drought and critical damage to the world's exchangeable currencies caused by the manipulative greed of those who own and operate it, I have cause to look deeper into the potential of little moves which may fell the monster.
I see a scenario emerging where the top 1% can be seen, through market behavior, manipulating the markets to retain (and increase) their wealth and power. This is not unusual and were I in that position I would, if my existence revolved around wealth and power, be predisposed to do the same.
Caught in this cycle of planetary change they probably see their danger. With severely damaged economies shrinking the foundation and extendability of their ascendancy they must be seeing gold's historic behavior as a raft in the storm—like everyone else is.
Unlike everyone though they have benefited greatly from the fiat system which can be seen in the massive gap between their wealth and everyone else. I believe they are in the process of positioning themselves to use gold and their trading power to use gold as a 'pivot' to migrate their wealth over the inflation abyss and into a revitalized fiat with shrunken debt.
However, there may be blindness in the unbridled self-interest leaving them with limited vision and the danger of entitlement. It is that group that has essentially generated the present condition. I do not see an evil conspiracy rather a shared myopia of political and economic leadership caught in this clear cycle of planetary redefinition.
Though we may want to believe we are above natural law nothing could be further from the truth. Human beings have never be separate from nature. As such the larger movements of change are natural. As with any cycle what was a the top will tend to be on the bottom. The 'best' are predisposed to clutching to the view of their ascendancy of course.
The beginning of the 'Great Gold Pivot' can be seen in the trading behavior of gold. Revealed in extended sideways trading gold-price manipulation, holding the price of gold and other precious metals in a range that benefits accumulation. This I see as the transfer of wealth in preparation for the use of gold and other precious metals as the pivot.
However, the pivot itself may be in great danger of falling flat with so much attention being given it. The spike may both look different this time especially if there is so little participation by the much much larger group of the relatively unwealthy and unpowerful.
Why? Because the relatively unwealthy and unpowerful may be in the process of changing the game right under the feet of those who at present hold the board.
Historically the 'board' has consisted of a set of positions held by the 1% actively limiting participation of the 'great unwashed masses'. But things are different now. The board's positions are losing relevance to a world of people that communicates freely amongst themselves without effective censorship on the web. But it is also knowledge and information that flow freely which greatly diminish the potency of the tools of the 1%. Indeed this has also resulted in the machinations of the manipulators being unmasked more effectively and in real time which, coupled with the previous points, reveal the true shift in power away from the traditional powers.
Thus the stage is set for what may be both a diminished gold bull cycle and a new system of monetary exchange ripped from the grasp of divide-and-conquer's traditional masters
The core thread of the whole theme is exchangeable value and who controls it. Gold has historically been the ultimate store of value because everyone thinks it is. But the thinking is changing as the 'masses' perception of money's present masters' activity rises to general awareness.
It is very important to understand it is people who have always determined value. But up to now that determination has been utterly manipulated.
The idea of fiat currency is actually quite functional much more so than gold. The only problem with the fiat system is that it has been controlled and manipuated by 'special' self-interest groups. This is now revealed as problematic for emerging planetary society as it continues to move towards democratic management—political and otherwise.
Is there a system, a currency system that has the potential to cut the shackles of the powerful moneyed tribes?
Yes there is: Bitcoin
This or something similar is the little stone that could be the path of the changing economic reality.
Begin your research and add your mind to the change for the better which our world needs now.

Start looking into this and be prepared to be safe from the falling giants. —G
