For the last 15 months gold has been heavily manipulated. So little in this world is now allowed to be free so why should gold be any different. Totalitarianism must be OK or else. Ask anyone that parrots the violently intolerant brain dead mainstream doctrine. They are our next totalitarian serving puppet leaders, for sure whilst the rest behave like frightened/ignorant sheep.
But can the undeserving masters of our fate maintain their obtuse self-serving control. Even if they mess up they still keep their status, so the consequence rests elsewhere, as usual. People power requires genuine free-thinking people, not farmyard animals in a totalitarian police state where half the sheeple are paid from their own taxes to indoctrinate, suppress and control the other half.
