Based on the fact that paper money is literally worthless, the fact that money basically represent a 'promise' to pay later,but with what. Gold is the only true representation of true wealth. The worlds money is controlled by a few highly addicted and greedy people. They created a ponzi scheme that is always bound to crash. The gold standard must be reinstated.

You say "Based on the fact that paper money is literally worthless..." So first off I would like too state a question, what gives something worth? People. Therefore your later statement that "Gold is the only true representation of true wealth." Is false since only people can give something worth and just like money, gold has been given worth by people just like money so saying money is worthless is like saying gold is worthless because the only reason gold is given worth is because it costs alot of money.
