The incredible collapse of value of silver in the 19th century — don't blame Comstock!
From: Professor Antal E. Fekete
What says the silver with her virgin hue?
“Who chooseth me shall get as much as he deserves.”
(Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice)

The silver standard did not die a natural death. It was deliberately killed. A proper search for the assassins was never carried out. There was never a post-mortem. In this paper we focus on the conspiracy as it might have unfolded between the two dates: April 9, 1865 (the day General Lee of the Confederacy surrendered at Appomattox to General Grant of the Union marking the end of the War Between the States) and January 1, 1879 (Resumption Day, when payment of the victorious Union’s currency, the greenback was resumed in gold specie — but not in silver ).

This Financial Hydra, this entire thing is insanity.
One person. That’s all it would take.
One person can take the whole thing down, through a simple business transaction. One high-profile, billionaire Chinese man (with the backing of his government) can take 5.5 billion U.S. dollars, funnel it through tech funds, and arrange a purchase of the entirety of the Comex silver (and its gold), and take delivery of Comex metal.
To avoid the outcry and backlash, come up with a great excuse for it. Let it be a new “company policy” that allows its thousands of employees to turn their life pensions into silver with free consent to do so. In such a way, the individual would avoid blame as acting alone as a “Hunt” or a “Hoarder”. Say, 20,000 employees taking delivery of an average of about 1,450 ounces of silver each. That would turn the entire Comex to ashes, blow the lid of the scam, and free humanity instantly.
