“The disaster of the Dark Ages was caused by decreasing money and falling prices… Without money, civilisation could not have had a beginning, and with a diminishing supply, it must languish and unless relieved, finally perish.

History records no other such disastrous transition as that from the Roman Empire to the Dark Ages…” — United States Silver Commission.
