21. She also disputed the very existence of society

Decimated our mining and industrial sectors, enacted a flat-rate poll tax and her ideological spawn are now busily privatising that same healthcare system for purely ideological reasons. She was also a hellspawned monster in various other ways but those aren't really relevant here.

24. Buying gold has nothing to do with "impending collapse".

Gold is valued in dollars so if you think the value of the dollar will go down then the price of gold will go up. Nothing is a straight line of course. Value of the dollar has been going down more or less for decades so price of gold has been going up. The value of gold itself does not change. In 1970 an ounce of gold bought 15 barrels of oil. In 2013 an ounce buys 15 barrels.

30. Hey! Thanks for the lesson.

There sure are a lot of websites, though, selling gold as a hedge against economic collapse, it seems. So, maybe there are some folks who feel like it's a way to invest against that possibility. Not me, you understand, but that has been a selling point for gold for a very long time. Now that it looks like the economy is going to survive, gold prices are dropping. Interesting, that.

51. I have traded in and out of gold for years.

Lost some here and there but overall have made more. For 12 straight years it has been worth more on Dec. 31 than the previous Jan. 1. I expect no different this year. I don't expect economic collapse. I own a variety of stocks. I wouldn't do that if I thought there was going to be a collapse. Our economy is too big to collapse no matter what party is in power. But it certainly can stagnate much as Europe and Japan has for years.

37. Buying Gold

 

Yes indeed, because buying pieces of paper assuring you that you own some gold somewhere is a sure way to save yourself should the economy completely collapse....

I would understand this gold buying craze a bit better if people were actually going out and buying gold and stashing it in their homes. Since most aren't, I understand it as an excellent way for some very clever people with some very good propagandists to make a lot of money off some not-so-clever, very frightened people.

39. But, see, the thing is that

real gold buyers buy real gold. Those who think that gold is a way to protect themselves from the "inevitable economic collapse" want real, shiny, yellow stuff they can look at and touch. They keep it hidden way, just like they do their dried survival food and ammo. They're funny that way.

Then, when the collapse comes, they'll buy food with their metal and shoot everyone else. It's all good. They're prepared.
