The Planned View of Precious Metals Markets
As there are two fundamental ways of viewing history – the accidental view and the pre-determined or planned view - so too there should also be two longterm ways of viewing markets, and, for the purposes of this piece, the precious metals market. Essentially, it is the same as the two views of history, so let’s take a look at those.
In the accidental view of history, wars and revolutions are seen as random, sudden and oft surprising events. This view is expunged in public schools and in the coverage of current events by the media. This works to essentially leave current events unexplained mysteries, a cloak for the powers that be. Events transpire by way of happenchance and coincidence. The planned view of history focuses instead on the part of history that is determined by man’s planning. Wars, revolution and events are the result of planning.
Generally speaking, this planned view of history also comes with the axiom that these events are planned closed to public debate, in secret. Franklin D. Roosevelt is quoted as saying, ”In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way.” The planned view of history is not reserved for conspiracy circles, as it has been used to explain events tragic events like the Holocaust and the The Great Purge in the Soviet Union by mainstream academics.
This same logic, as scantily as it is applied to history in the dominant culture, is even more scantily applied to markets. Increasing coverage of “market manipulation” surely has piqued the interest of serious students, but it has not yet begun to pierce the veil of daily noise analysis. In analysis of the daily noise, accidental circumstances – world events, etc. – are posited as bearing a particular weight on markets. There is little regard for the planned nature of the world events and the unnatural forcing of the markets themselves by critical-mass institutions. This, then, makes analysis of charts and daily movements useless when viewed as commentary on the free evolution of prices and not as insight into the nature of the planning and management of that particular market.
The accidental view of the precious metals market is compounded by the consistent news reports of today on how central banks are going from net sellers of gold to net buyers. I think these reports are exaggerated. It posits the central banks as reactionary to the market conditions, devoid of the knowledge necessary to have anticipated the price rise in the precious metals market.
First of all, while the banks may have been net sellers when viewed in a timeframe that is merely a whisper in time- say, the last ten to twenty years – many of these banks started out as goldsmiths.Did family tradition within the banking oligarchies at some point change? I don’t believe so. The institutions which have been for hundreds of years central banks are, in a way, the ultimate stackers – they’ve stacked tangible resources like gold and silver on down through the ages.
Even CNBC recently admitted that the manipulation in the markets has gone on for centuries. If this is true, then one would be led to believe that the price rise of the last ten years was not only well-known in advance due to the planned nature of the devaluation of the US Dollar, but has also been managed throughout. Having been known in advance, one would suspect that capstone central banks would have prepared accordingly – that is, a furtherance of their precious metals program. Of course, that’s if their hoards over the centuries - not to mention perceived ownership of the world’s resources and people – were not already enough.
The implications for the precious metals investor in the planned-view episteme are hardly grave. Indeed, this view takes many of the same premises that most investors in the market already have, and that is mismanagement of the global economy has steered us into an acute economic crisis. It is throughout this economic crisis that the precious metals price must be managed, and, because the crisis is causing a fading in the buying power of major fiat currencies like the US Dollar, they will appear to increase in value. How quickly they appear to do so, in particular, is what is to be managed.
Commodities like gold and silver will continue rise in price. This trend cannot altogether be stopped sans a dominant culture correction of the world economy to a structure akin to the 1950s. Such a re-orientation of the world economy will not suddenly happen, as, in part, this would be a sacrificing of hard-earned Power by capstone market-makers. So, along the path of the secular bull market, the price will be managed in its rise in such a way so as to be profitable to elite insiders, to discourage popular hoarding of the physical metals and make fiat currencies look like viable mediums of exchange.
For a true understanding of the gold and silver market, an episteme focusing on the planned-nature of history, and therefore all markets, is essential, and thus the way to truly understanding the way in which the metals move and why they move in such ways.
