Having destroyed the U.S. dollar, the
government is now destroying anyone
who offers an inflation-proof alternative. Whether or not this is the
motive in this case, it is very likely that the U.S. government will quite literally
fight for its life against any sound currency as they become viable alternatives.
(As long as it controls the currency, the
printing press will always be the primary means of expanding state power regardless of any tax cuts or recessions.)
