    Sorry aus, seems you've been fighting alone while I've been working.

    Although it may be better to go back to first principles it is probably simplest to start by quoting a bunch of famous people who have a clue:
    Can you see the common element? Quite simply the best way to get the opposite of all of these things and to increase our civil liberties is to return to sound money. Paraphrasing Mises "It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it is an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments and the banking cartel supported by the government".

    Ideologically, sound money belongs in the same class with political constitutions and bills of rights.

    I (and many others that I know) stack for the purpose that of aiding the return of sound money, thereby removing these negative, distorting, immoral, anti-liberty effects at the heart of our current system. If you haven't already realised, many of the articles and comments posted on these forums are effectively about how the current system is unsustainable and will collapse. (Some authors advocate that such a collapse is mathematically guaranteed although I still withhold judgement.)

    Some of your ideas that bang the same old 'wealth accumulation through negatively geared residential property' drum are fundamentally doomed and the people who will suffer the most are most likely those who get in last. Further, even though exploiting the system for your personal gain was a popular way for many people to suck the wealth of others to themselves some of us have moved back to the old ways of acquiring wealth namely work hard and/or work smart to make better products/services just like the good ole capitalist system encourages and rewards naturally.

    This is why stackers and people who buy gold/silver under the simple 'Permanent Portfolio' style approach are on different ideological planets. I have no issues with people wanting to do the PP-style investments but I don't see the need for them to bang on about how great it is to exploit the Ponzi debt fuelled schemes to steal other people's property by stealth. It is the antithesis of the sound money agenda.

    See also this thread Yippe put up yesterday if you haven't already. http://forums.silverstackers.com/topic-32236-civil-liberties-rest-upon-sound-money.html

    PS: Look a big post without a single swear word or calling someone else by a childish name. :p

    Sometimes, say when it is raining or it's a Monday, I may spend 8-9 hours on this forum going back over my old posts to see who has thanked me. I then right the names down in a little list I keep beside my bed and often look at it and marvel at my own magnificence.

    I agree. I have made this point before... but try not to bother anymore.... but one last time:

    Market manipulation by short selling paper to push price downward = bad, evil, criminal.

    Market manipulation by collectively hoarding physical to push price "to da moon" = good, morally heroic, world saviour, genius. :rolleyes:

    Nah I'm here but unlike you auspm with so much time on your hands I have businesses and properties to manage.

    I've scrolled through all the posts again in this thread and I really didn't appreciate how delusional your really are about the real world and standard business concepts auspm. I shared a house about 30 years ago with two Jewish fellows. They were very well educated and they taught me a lot about the goyim (gentiles) strange attitude towards money.

    Seems the Jews in the middle ages were excluded from all the guilds by the Catholic church and the church viewed money lending as a mortal sin best left to the unbelievers. So the charge that jews were dirty money hungry thieving [email protected] was encouraged by the goyim and led to the pogroms.

    You have an unhealthy almost religious zeal about anyone using borrowed money to invest to the point where you view it as usery with a Shakespearean Merchant of Venice Shylock fixation..... sad really:(

    Kind Regards

    yep doing the odd bribe lately in anticipation of my new political career.. its going great too i might add got a few things done in a flash that would have usually taken ages & went to the head of the queue straight past the sheep .....ahhh life is good . Dig deep ya tightwad it might get ya where you want to go a bit faster you never know if you dont ask ..

    In all seriousness i have ran a few different businesses & a bit of cash or a carton of beer or special bottle of their favourite drop goes a long way to getting your job pushed to the head of the queue & seperates you from the rest of the whingers that want their job done yesterday . If theres no incentive why would they bother. ..... Its not unethical its called business ..

    I would assume most business ownwers here would have done something similar to cement their business relationships . If they say no they have never bought anyone a bottle of something or a case of beer for a job well done they are a bit of a tightwad

    It's actually no different than giving your employees a gift or a bonus. What are they if not "bribes" to continue doing the work?

    In business it's all voluntary. With state officials they can use their power to change things in people's favour and against others and that is the corruption. Using state power is the corruption. Not giving a few extras to business partners, whether they be partners or employees.

    My 2c.

    I would tend to agree with some of that except your actually getting something changed in your favour with a business partner ie... getting an expedited job & disadvantaging the others in the queue because their job got put on the backburner .& its always voluntary or you wouldnt do it . Lets face it im pretty sure no one says you have to give me this thats extortion its usually a suggestion that if you give me X i might be able to do something for you ......Its a hard one to answer definatively

    Perhaps if you were not such a fiscal pygmy you would have them?

    Or are wishes only the domain of the poor and financially inept?
