The Sociological and Psychological Implications of Being a Dinar Speculator
I have been involved in the GCR currency speculation for over 3 years now. I have literally followed it every day (and I mean every day) for over 3 years.
What is amazing about that is in my 55 years on the planet, I don't know that I have done that with anything else in my entire life. I find that quite striking. I can guarantee that I am not alone in my attention to this process.
This entire process has been built on blind faith. Sure, you might say that we can support what is happening with past historical events, articles in the media and so called intel, but when it really comes down to it, it is all blind faith.

Especially for those of us who have adjusted our thinking to put the majority of our trust on the "intel" side of the equation. We have put our trust, belief and confidence in individuals who we know virtually little about.
We assume that people are exactly who they claim to be and trust what they say to be the truth. We apply what we think of as "logic" to situations and events that are completely outside the scope of anything we have ever encountered in our lives before and in areas that most of us have minimal expertise.
The sources and connections that people say they have in 3 letter agencies, banks, "boots on the ground" are all taken on faith, as their identities can not be revealed in order to protect them.
So again, we assume they are who they say they are, or that they even exist at all. We develop friendships with avatars and screen names and create identities for this people who only exist as words typed on a computer screen. It's pretty crazy when you start to look at it this way.
So why would we be so willing to suspend disbelief and so readily extend trust? I know that sociologists and psychologists would have a field day with us.
I think about the radio drama Orsen Wells did back in the 1930's, "The War of the Worlds", which was broadcast on on Halloween night and caused mass hysteria, panic and even suicides. Here was a story that was fantastic, outlandish and over the top, and perhaps for just those reasons it made people believe it was real.
Perhaps in our own case, maybe it is the fantastic, outlandish and over the top aspect of the dinar, dong and other currency revaluations that make them so attractive. Perhaps because of our own dire circumstances or of those around us that secretly we all want something miraculous, almost supernatural to happen, which will save the day and make everything right.
And for that reason we are willing to suspend the normal safeguards we all have that preserve and protect us and repeatedly go back and put hand on the hot stove. Because let's face it, we keep getting burned and keep coming back for more.
This post is not meant to be negative or condescending, but rather as a point of reflection. I personally need to ask these questions of myself. I am a "why" question person. There is always cause and effect.
I have been in the health care profession for 28 years now, and I am always asking "why" questions. And there is always an answer. Sometimes it just takes time to ferret it out.
I ask myself continually, "Why do I keep putting my hand back on that hot stove?" Why do I continue to trust in the "intel" when it always changes and becomes something else.
In some ways I have become the child of an inattentive parent, who just keeps wishing and praying that today will be the day mom or dad follows through on what they said they would do and all will be right with the world.
Well, I guess I am done with my rant. I haven't really discovered any answers, but maybe, I do feel a little lighter.
Happy Thanksgiving to all. Be blessed.
