Navigating the Fourth Turning

Doug Casey, Michael Spreadborough and Michael Oliver return as guests on this week’s program.

Doug Casey is an “international man” having lived in various countries and traveling actively around the world. He is a free-thinking intellectual and a very successful entrepreneur. He has talked about the Fourth Turning in the past. But now people living in the Western world are on the cusp of the next Fourth Turning in which a handful of this worlds insanely rich are seeking to extinguish freedom of the individual to speak freely, enjoy the fruits of their labor and own and control private property. Instead, billionaires like Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum are planning to extinguish large numbers of the middle-class people and ensure those who are left become servants of his rich and powerful “friends.”

Judging by their open border immigration policies and massively inflationary economic policies, the existing Democrat party in America and most elected governments in Europe seem to be onboard with Klaus Schwab. Assuming this is the fate of the masses, we asked Doug if he has any suggestions as to how we should navigate this evolving revolution away from freedom toward tyranny. No matter how evil, governments of all stripes have been unable to destroy gold which our Creator meant for us to use as money.

Michael Spreadborough provides updates on Novo Resources’ latest efforts to discover more gold in Western Australia and to return to production at Beatons Creek. Michael Oliver shares his latest views on the market prospects for gold and other life sustaining materials.
