Liberty Is Dying By Inches, But There Is A Silver Lining
“Don’t Kill the King, Ignore Him”
Claudio Grass been advising HNWIs for over a decade on the best strategies to preserve wealth. In this era of debilitating central economic planning and monetary inflation, this has involved buying and storing physical gold and silver bullion, in full privacy, outside of the banking system, in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
No one knows the future and we don’t even know the truth of our current situation; or in the words of Johannes Wolfgang von Goethe:
It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it.
He has been traveling and studying the world for most of his life. First, as an airline executive. Then, as a Swiss Peace Corp Officer on the Israeli-Syrian border. Finally, for the past 10 years, as an investment manager specialized in precious metals.
Throughout his studies of geopolitics, history, philosophy and macro-economy, the writers who have left him with the longest-lasting impressions are those who spoke of the superiority of liberty over tyranny, who have written about the individual’s natural right to life, and those who have properly shown the utter limitations and immorality of collectivism in all its forms. Among them are Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, Harry Brown, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Frédéric Bastiat, Friedrich von Hayek and Alexis de Tocqueville to name just a few.
When he thinks about gold, he also thinks about the values associated with it. The most important aspect to him is striving for personal and individual happiness – or the right of every person to pursue happiness in their own way. It is his profound conviction that sound money is fundamental to a healthy and prosperous society. That is why he became a proponent of the Austrian School of Economics, which stands for private ownership, free markets and financial sovereignty, resting on the premise that things are settled into order despite the apparent chaos of individual actions.
His moral and practical motivations for personally owning physical gold and silver are hence quite straightforward; they are as well, he thinks, just as clear for those who understand the theoretical and philosophical background he has referenced.
