gold versus hemp
Characteristics of Gold
1. Fixed in quantity
2. Extremely rare
3. Completely owned, controlled
5. Practically worthless – conceptual value only
Characteristics of Hemp
1. Grow as much as required
2. Abundant across climate and terrain
4. Degradable and rejuvenating
5. Inherent value – food, fibre, fuel, pharmaceuticals, plastic, paper...
Fixed in quantity, gold can neither expand or contract to represent goods, services, or resources. A population of seven million or seven billion, the amount of gold is the same, whilst its averaged measure is divided by one thousand.
Hemp is a weed. Grow it anywhere, whenever the need.
Gold is extraordinarily rare. All the gold ever mined would struggle to fill two Olympic sized swimming pools.
Hemp is a weed, from temperate to tropic.
The world's gold is entirely owned, completely controlled. It never sees the light of day, but is hidden in vaults by select elites who dictate its relative value: together with the market.
Hemp is a weed, pick it from the roadside.
Gold is timeless, it does not tarnish or decay. It lasts for ever. Stashed away, accumulating relative value: firstly against resources, goods and services, but more so, against money: from which gold was almost unnoticeably detached some decades past. 'Inflation' it is named, however, in essence that translates to: money's inexorable depreciation, relative to the real world: land, produce, labour, and of course, gold. Gold's inflating value is matched only by land (and oil, temporarily) in terms of relative worth: firstly, relative to population, resources, technology, expansion... as a percentage measure, and what can be wrung from it, However, by far the greatest accelerators for the relative value of gold, are instability and insecurity. Indeed, in these turbulent times it seems there is no limit to the extraordinary value placed upon this practically useless soft yellow metal.
Hemp is a weed, it has its season, it degrades and rejuvenates, as all other life forms. Hoarding beyond the practical and pragmatic hold no logic.
Gold is practically worthless. Baubles and trinkets, and as a conductor: most notably for conducting genuine wealth from the naïve to the wicked. Gold's very existence is predicated on exchanging material and conceptual capital: valued by a third party. For gold to hold value there must be an authority to dictate said value.
Hemp is a weed, with a short growth cycle.
Hemp seeds are ten a penny... a thousand a penny: almost, almost too insignificant to recognise a value. Yet, they are favoured food of birds and fish, and although dismissed by gastronomes, hemp seed (manna from Shiva) is the most nutritionally complete food on earth (Appendix D).
The material value of hemp is not in its nutritious and ubiquitous seed, almost valueless: free to all, to feed the world. But in tending and processing, giving time and attention to the product thereof: bud, fibre, hurds, resin, cloth, paper, oil...(Appendix C). A pound of which is readily assimilated into the thinking of any trader, without a value dictated from above. Value is inherent and understood, irrevocably fixed to produce and product; eliminating the very notion of inflation.
Hard currency can be extracted and pressed from the buds of the female plant. Oil and resin: most highly prized medicinally and spiritually, serve as extremely concentrated value. Coinage, that is readily testable by any trader or vendor.
Time bound (in years, for seed and medicine, and (potentially) generations for cloth, board, plastic, paper...(Appendix C)) hemp's value is generational, not geological, so cannot be sat upon, hidden (buried under rocks, whilst its 'talents' inexorably, magically rise through eternity) but must be tended, repaired, renewed, developed as a continual and natural process. Wealth is not hidden, fixed and accumulating, through dynasties, but is the fruit of being. And, as such, hand in hand with genuine value, eliminating inflation, comes depreciation: destroying the anathema of interest on capital.
While hemp operates as a common sense of value on a grand scale, and even locally and personally to an extent, for the individual, family and community, freed from banks and governments, they must now become their currency: their 'promise to pay'.
Their 'promise to pay' (as issued, for example, by The Bank of England: but, instead of imaginary silver, sterling): the personal bond and integrity of each and every signatory, The value of their word, and how close it is to Truth.
As debt decreases through time, for no debt can outlive its reason, so too, potentially, does the value of our promise, our bond: if, there is no understanding to be found. The quality of promise (and produce) therefore, directly determines its value. Knowledge thereof naturally diffuses, through open, functioning society. Not in judgement, for it is no one's position to judge another, but as information, in awareness, to enhance the understanding of all.
An exchange mechanism to serve the whole world, not just those who claim it as their own: founded in harmony, forgiveness and Truth. Harmony with nature, forgiveness of debt and as our gateway to Truth.
And the winner is...
the choice of all reasoning individuals.
So for the reptile, disempowered through understanding, awareness and an honest, transparent exchange mechanism, there is no hiding place. The illusion of their gold is punctured, pop. If they cannot adapt, leave them to their parasite riddled extinction: cold and isolated and huddled in darkness: surrounded by their useless yellow metal
