"You have to live in Truth to remain spiritually free. Life in Truth consists of giving testimony, acknowledging the Truth and defending it in each situation. Truth never changes. It cannot be destroyed by any decision or legal act. Our slavery stems from our surrender to the rule of the lie, our failure to unmask a lie, and to protest against it in everyday life. Instead of correcting the lie we keep silent, or pretend to believe it is true.This means living in falsehood. Telling the Truth with courage is a way leading directly to freedom. A person who tells the Truth is a free man despite external slavery, imprisonment, or official custody. If in the present political situation the majority of the Polish people followed the one and only Truth, our nation would become spiritually free today! The external or political freedom would follow sooner or later as a consequence of the spiritual freedom and faithfulness to the Truth.Overcoming fear is a key element in the process of setting Man free. Fear springs from threats. We fear suffering; we fear the loss of some goods, the loss of freedom, health or a job. This fear makes us act against our conscience, and it is by means of our conscience that we take the measure of Truth. We overcome fear the moment we agree to lose something for the sake of a higher value. If Truth becomes a value worth suffering for, worth taking a risk, then we will overcome the fear that keeps us in slavery...Any nation is bound to perish if deprived of bravery, if it pretends that everything is good when it is not, and if it is satisfied with half-truths. Every day we must be aware that when we are demanding truth from others we must live in truth ourselves, demanding justice we must be just, demanding bravery we must be brave."Jerzy Popiełuszko

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Living in Solidarity With the Truth
Silver was the stonewall again, refusing to lose its aspiration to the 20 handle. Gold wavered a bit but finished well.
We *might* get a gut check for those punters who flipped metals positions trying to second guess the market today.
But all in all, the clock is counting down on this act of the drama.
The SGE received approval for a gold free trade zone in Shanghai. The BRICs will be meeting in Brazil on July 15. They are chafing at the latest excesses of empire.
The financiers will never see this next one coming, they are so used to looking down on everything and everyone. If you are looking for clues, the kabuki at the Comex will be one of the last places to see things as they really are.
When one considers the way things are among the puffed up princes, along the lines of Pascal's wager, it really is hard not to laugh. The last will be first, and the smart money are dopes, getting it all completely wrong, like an opera buffo.
It really is. Irony doesn't even begin to cover it.
Have a pleasant evening.
