Financial literacy as a civil right, and the first global silver right.

In the 20th century, the issue here anf around the world was democracy – with Dr. King marching in the Southern states, Nelson Mandela marching in South Africa, and Gandhi before them marching for justice in India. The issue was democracy, and without the vote you were a slave. Today, in the 21st century, the issue is global economics, and without an understanding of the language of money (financial literacy), and a bank account, you are still a slave. Today financial literacy is a global civil rights issue, and the first 21st century silver right.

My mentor and personal hero civil rights icon Ambassador Andrew Young once told me “John, Dr. King and the movement integrated the lunch counters, but we never integrated the dollar.” This is the mandate of and for the silver rights movement.
