“Like A Blind Man In A Dark Room Looking For A Black Hat Which Isn’t There”

For many months now I have been spending many long, enjoyable and fruitful hours reading hundreds of excellent essays in the modern day equivalents of the public library. These websites, their owners and contributors are similar to Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg which lead to the Reformation. There are also analogous to the pamphleters of the American Revolution.

Excellent and informative websites such as www.gold-eagle.comwww.lemetropolecafe.com,www.lewrockwell.comwww.dailyreckoning.comwww.financialsense.comwww.321gold.com,www.prudentbear.comwww.depression2.tvwww.urbansurvival.comwww.fiendbear.com,www.truthout.orgwww.silver-investor.comwww.zealllc.comwww.usagold.com and many others are the modern equivalent of Luther’s scroll or the American pamphleteers.

I am not exaggerating when I say that they have in effect given me a free financial, economic and monetary education.

The musings of the many wonderful minds who preach to goldbugs, contrarians, real anarchists, real patriots, conservatives and republicans, moralists, real believers in genuine free markets, solution seekers and a combination of them all, have had a significant impact on my worldview and indeed the direction in which my life is going.
