Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Faust: My Soul Damned for the World


"Violence begets violence; hate begets hate; and toughness begets a greater toughness.  It is all a descending spiral, and the end is destruction — for everybody.  Along the way of life, someone must have enough sense and morality to cut off the chain of hate.

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.  Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Martin Luther King

"The gates of Hell are terrible to behold, are they not?  The lofty mind of man can be imprisoned by the artifices of its own making.  If there are damned souls in Hell, it is because men blind themselves."

E.A. Bucchianeri, Faust: My Soul Be Damned for the World

"Some who accuse others of inciting riots have by their own conduct invited them.  Some look for scapegoats, others look for conspiracies, but this much is clear; violence breeds violence, repression brings retaliation, and only a cleaning of our whole society can remove this sickness from our soul."

Robert F. Kennedy, 5 April 1968

"If at the start this cancerous growth in the nation was not particularly noticeable, it was only because there were still enough forces at work that operated for the good, so that it was kept under control.  As it grew larger, however, and finally in an ultimate spurt of growth attained ruling power, the tumor broke open, as it were, and infected the whole body."

The White Rose, Second Leaflet, Munich 1942

‘Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord', will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only one who does the will of my Father in heaven.  On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and accomplish great things in your name?'  Then I will declare to them, ''I do not know you.  Depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.'”

Matthew 7:21-23

A mixed day in a holiday shortened week.

The VIX declined and the Dollar rose, but stocks traded weakly and ended lower.

Gold and silver were under pressure.

 There will be a deluge of economic data on Wednesday.

After the bell the crypto firm Genesis has warned of bankruptcy.

 Death, wealth, and power are the idols and dark masters of this world.

You cannot choose life by embracing lawlessness and death. 

You cannot deceive and oppress the innocent and naive, and be a child of God.

You cannot spread lies and hate, for any reason, and then be among those who are standing firm with the Lord.   

You cannot act on your 'righteous anger' because you have none, you are not righteous, loving only your own passions and self.

Serve whom you will, but know whom it is that you serve.

Do not be deceived, for God is not mocked.   As you sow, so shall you reap. 

'I do not know you.  Depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.'

Have a pleasant evening.
