Gold Is Worthless...
Don't believe me - try to pay your bills, buy groceries or purchase household goods with a bar of the stuff.
Sure, GOVERNMENTS need gold as a means to calculate value and worth - but people don't make such large transactions on a daily basis.
Survivalists preach that everyone should own a bar or two - but why?
The Government could re-enact Executive Order 6102 and make the ownership of this 'precious metal' illegal once again to prevent hoarding (Except buy the Government itself).
Religious types can refer to The Bible for guidance.
James 5: 1-3 states, "Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
Your gold and your silver is cankered, and the rust upon them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.".
Apparently, gold was not to be hoarded so long by so few that it would cause rust to form.
Being able to hunt and kill ones food would be better than trying to coax a beast with gold bullion.
