Tinfoil Tuesday: The Road to RootaAugust 7th, 2012
It’s not often we find an optimistic conspiracy, but the Road to Roota Theory, which is a theory of how we’ll return to the gold standard, is exactly that. The Road to Roota Theory is put forward by Bix Weir, who at one time worked for Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA), an organization committed to exposing nefarious manipulations in the gold market. But apparently, after seeing what he felt was a hidden subtext in comic books published by the Federal Reserve to “educate” children about money, Bix became too conspiratorial for GATA. Bix posits that there is actually a faction working within the cabal of banking elite who are working to undo their monetary hegemony and usher in a new era of honest currency.
It reminds me of the oddly placed gold coins we found in the Avengers comic published by Visa last June.
The Road to Roota Theory postulates that there is a group of people within the larger banking conspiracy working to destroy the financial system, conduct a controlled collapse of the dollar, and a return to the gold standard. The idea for this secret group came from Alan Greenspan, who allegedly invented the computer programs they’d use to out manipulate the manipulators in the 1960’s. It’s interesting to note tangentially that I’ve always wondered why it was the Alan Greenspan apparently supported the Gold Standard prior to his appointment as Fed Chair, but then mysteriously, at least publicly, changes his position. In 1967 he published an essay titled “Gold and Economic Freedom” in Ayn Rand’s book “Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal.” How he went from that to Chairman of the Federal Reserve in 1987 has always confused me.
The children’s comic book was titled “Wishes and Rainbows” and came with with a teacher’s companion called “The Road to Roota”. Both were first published in 1981 while Reagan’s Gold Commission was strategizing a way back to a gold standard. But the comic was republished on the Federal Reserve website in 2007.

Go ahead and look it over. It’s a pretty interesting read. It has a bit of the flavor of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. But Bix offers a selection of word substitions that he claims illuminates the secret message of the comic.
Colorland = Gold Standard (or commodity based currency)
Boulder Ridge = Canada
Gopher Junction = Mexico
Pebbleton = USA
Pebblepeople = US Citizens
Grey Flowers = Fiat Currency
World of No Color = Fiat Money System
Color Flowers = Commodity Backed Treasury Notes
Cobblestone Canyon = A Secret Gold Mine in the Grand Canyon
The Mayor = President Ford or Reagan
Golden Sunlight = Gold Reserves
Black Tears = Oil Backed Currency
Read this way, the comic takes on a whole new meaning, but remains completely internally consistent. But this is only the tip of rather large ice burg.
The Road To Roota Theory rests on a set of key components.
- All markets have been 100% controlled by computer programs since the 1970′s in order to steer and control prices thus prolonging the fiat monetary system.
- A powerful cabal of the world’s elite have taken over that market manipulation process and twisted it to enhance their own profits while pretending to service their nation’s best interests.
- In the early 1900′s the United States embarked on a secret policy to hide all of its own natural resources and exploit the rest of the world’s until resource scarcity was fully recognized.
- In order to support the oil backed US Dollar and the world’s petro-based economic system the “powers that be” have hidden new energy technologies that would greatly benefit the world’s population as well as the environment.
- Since 911 there is a group of people and governments that have decided “enough is enough” and are in the process of removing the banking cabal from their seat of power.
- The planned destruction of the fiat monetary system is the type of “Creative Destruction” event that will force the implementation of a new Gold Standard within the United States.
Ultimately Bix predicts a bright future of economic justice. He predicts the complete collapse of the fiat monetary system, including the evaporation of all paper/digital assets, resulting in greater equilibrium between “haves” and “have-nots” (Sounds a bit like Fight Club). He predicts that those behind the banking conspiracy that has robbed up for the past 100 years will be hunted down and prosecuted (if they are lucky). That the US will issue a new gold backed domestic currency resulting in material abundance for our many failing necessary infrastructures. He predicts that all US troops overseas, no longer tasked with propping up the dollar hegemony, will return home to ensure the safety of the US. He predicts full employment, the end of global trade, domestic production, and the release of vast natural resources kept secret from the American people into US markets. He predicts that many secret energy technologies which are already invented will be revealed, ending the need for the oil standard, and a new “Golden Age” of wealth and prosperity.
If you’re the type of conspiracy enthusiast who has landed themselves in a dark paralyzing pit of despair I highly recommend you divert some of your regular reading to surfing around RoadToRoota.com, but no conspiracy theory escapes my skepticism, especially in the realm of economics. For example, as soon I read that Bix claimed the economy was “100% controlled” I knew he might be engaged in hyperbole. Such a thing is not physically possible by any means because individual actors in the economy are constantly making spontaneous uncontrolled decisions with wealth and property. A significant part of my economic activity isn’t even in dollars anymore, so you can’t tell me 100% of my economic activity is controlled by the dollar hegemony. Finally, although I think it is entirely possible that some banking elite insiders could be persuaded to our view of free markets, and could be working from inside to facilitate the transition, I categorically reject the implication that because economic slavery comes from a powerful cabal of central planners, economic freedom must also come from a powerful cabal of ideologically different central planners. Such a conspiracy would not do away with economic slavery any more than Marx’s “dictatorship of the proletariat” would do away with dictatorship. The answer to the crimes of centralized power is decentralized power, not another centralized power. Freedom has always, and forever will come from the bottom up, not from the top down.
But I’ll tell you one thing, I’m going to go take a closer look at the teacher’s guide to that Visa Avengers comic.
