Understanding that there is no grand conspiracy to systemically suppress gold is actually vital as is to understand the true nature of money. If you do not grasp these points, you cannot move forward. Sun Tzu and his Art of War applies to all confrontations.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself,
you will succumb in every battle”
To survive what we are going through takes a keen understanding of the world in which we live. A good car racer is someone who can “feel” all the cars around them and look for the ever so slight signs of a thought to change direction and anticipate the next move. The same can be said about playing chess. If you simply plow ahead without thinking objectively, you will not survive.
You cannot cling to one-dimensional biases. This is how governments collapse. All they can see is their own self-interest desperately trying to hold the reins of power as they are pulled from their bloody hands. Keep an open mind. Observe the world around you. The markets are never wrong. Manipulations are only isolated events within single market. Everything is connected. When it all moves together, it cannot be a manipulation.
