Prepared or not – it is coming
By Jim Jones
I penned an article on PRAVDA previously, entitled “Are You Prepared?” in which I outlined my ideas and concerns over the Federal Reserve and the impending currency crash. The manner in which the article has been received has surprised me and I feel emboldened to progress this concept further.
When looking through comments, it is interesting that they are generally concurring with my premise and indicating that many others out there are already looking along a similar vein in regards currency matters.
I have no academic claim to fame in the field of finance/economics, I am however professionally qualified and was a Major in the Infantry. My view on matters is as seen through such conditioning and I believe, reflect the view of those who would listen to reasoned argument.
That being said, one of my compatriots commented:
Pravda identifies the USA – but the reality is every country is doing the same thing, including Russia!
I don’t intend turning this article into a Blog reply exercise, but feel compelled to respond to this post, as it has a bearing on the following article.
My previous article was not necessarily the view of PRAVDA and to construe it as such is doing PRAVDA a disservice. This comment also has in it connotations of the Reds and Us mentality of the Cold War era; “Pravda identifies the USA – including Russia”. The reality is, no other currency which so impacts on the world economy as does the Green Back; for no other reason than it has been the default international currency of trade. All countries around the world have traded in and /or hold US currency. Suggesting that the article in somehow was an attack on the USA, is to miss the point and to cast mischievous, derogatory innuendo on the article, PRAVDA and Russia.
We are talking about nothing more substantial than monopoly money being used for international trade. Put a US Dollar bill alongside a Monopoly bill and I say to you that the only difference between them is people’s faith in the US Dollar Bill. As soon as that faith is shattered, either by planned devaluation or people becoming aware and a panic run, the dollar will be as worthless as the monopoly money.
So concerned am I about the impending collapse and the turmoil and trouble that will follow it, that I feel a Don Quixote desire to spread this warning and spare as many as I can from the heartache that will follow. To be truthful, however, I feel as John The Baptist, shouting in the wilderness “Make straight the way of the Lord”.
