“Anyone who fights for the future, lives in it today.” ~Ayn Rand
What is SBSS?
“Ideas are very important to the shaping of society. In fact, they are more powerful than weapons or armies or guns. And this is because ideas are capable of spreading without limit. They are behind all the choices we make. They can transform the world in a way that governments and armies cannot. Fighting for liberty with ideas makes more sense to me than fighting with guns or politics or political power. With ideas, we can make real change that lasts.”
~ Ron Paul, Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom
Silver Bullet Silver Shield is not a person, it is not a blog or a website, it is not a product. You cannot steal it, you can’t pervert it, or destroy it. Silver Bullet Silver Shield is an idea. It is the idea that physical silver, in any form, held by an individual, is both a defense against inflation and against the destructiveness of fractional banking. It is the idea that acquiring silver is a direct way to expedite the collapse of the fragile, fraudulent banking system. It is the reminder to our society that physical silver is both the bullet and the shield that defend us in the war that we face today, against our values and our self-esteem. It is the idea that we know our values and will not give them up. It is the idea that we know our principles and will not see them ignored. It is the idea that we own our selves, and will not lay down and stop fighting.
Ideas, as we know, are bulletproof.
Collecting and stacking SBSS medallions is not just opportunity to benefit from the bullet and shield, but also to share in an adventure that tells the story of both the current paradigm of our society, its flaws and strategies, and the catalysts of our intellectual evolution. Along with the value stored in them, the lessons contained in each coin in the SBSS series can be shared and passed down, to teach our children, and their children’s children, that centuries ago, someone, somewhere was doing something powerful and beautiful in attempt to positively affect the course of human events.
SBSS: then and now
“I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction.”
~Ayn Rand, ‘Anthem’
When Silver Bullet Silver Shield was launched in September 2012, the response was unlike anything that anyone could have ever imagined. In a span of months, the message of SBSS spread throughout the world. The message was there, and its time had come. Hundreds of letters were received each week from supporters all around the world, encouraging the cause to continue, and congratulating the responsible parties for what they had done so far. SBSS had stumbled onto something greater than themselves. Thousands of people shared in the success: affiliate partners, eBay home businesses, international bullion dealers, coin collectors, vendors, and press operators. Everyone involved with the project received value from it; everyone saw profit. SBSS had created their own market. Friends became friendly competition; working to spread the message and to share in the success of trading coins with a cause.
Along with many others, Silver Bullet Silver Shield remained in the back of our minds, like a tiny spark that refused to be extinguished. After months of observing the relentless attacks that nearly destroyed the livelihoods of dozens of people that helped make Silver Bullet Silver Shield a reality, we could no longer live in silence. A passionate group of collectors, customers, authorized dealers, and interested parties have come together to push forward with the true mission of Silver Bullet Silver Shield: Getting precious metals into the hands of the people.
And so, a weary, battle hardened, but optimistic team now risks their time, trade, and energy to bring this beautiful idea back to life. We are here. We push forward because it is right for us to do so, and we invite you, once again, to be a part of the adventure.
