The July edition of the journal of the Gold Standard Institute leads off with an essay by financial writer Louis Boulanger, who argues that while people may ignore reality, they do so at great peril, as there is no guarantee that reality will ignore them. 
Boulanger concludes that the Internet revolution is moving sovereignty away from the state and back toward individuals — which is, of course, the moral claim for ensuring that the precious metals trade freely as independent currencies. May it come to pass in our time.
