"Dr. Manhattan" of Preppers Dies

Manboons paw through his possessions trying to understand why, oh why, a man would want to avoid all traditional work for forty years by making a simple investment in economic consequences.

This guy was an "early bounder" like so many others in the 1970's. He just thought there was no way they'd be able to hold the whole rotten system together for another fifty years. He was probably a rational man who had thought it through in a way ordinary people simply can't. He figured, anything as sour as this country is going to collapse very soon.

It actually limped on through the 80's and 90's and even had a few brief reprieves but never anything like the glory days of the United States. All fake prosperity built with fiat currency on top of a dying nation.

Despite his errors in estimating the when, he definitely got the why and how right.

$35.00 an ounce for gold. Man, that is incredible. I wouldn't be shocked to see it hit $5000.00 an ounce in the near future. Pity this guy didn't live to see his fellow men make fools out of themselves.

I clicked the link and got Error 404, Not Found. But i know the story anyway, it was just in the news. Btw i just read from an other blog (here in my country) that gold is like a 1000$ an ounce. That shit is becoming expensive like Chocolate apparently will. Maybe we should all start to hoard Chocolade huh ?!
