According to The Guardian:
Meanwhile a 35-year-old first aid worker who wants to be known as Papa Romeo claims that, on 8 November in the village of Bombi Te, the Seleka were outrun by motorcyclists carrying weapons and took revenge on the population. “My wife was in the field with our four-year-old, Richide,” he says. “The Seleka took her money and gold and told her to leave and not come back.
“They started to attack my son. They tried to shoot him but the gun was not working. So they slit his throat instead. What threat does this child pose to the Seleka? He is just a child. My heart is right here: if Michel Djotodia was here, my heart would destroy him.”
The story behind the story to me here is that this woman in a field in the middle of bumble f**k Africa had more gold than me! Yet because of where she lives it is not nearly as valuable to her as it would be to me. It’s an interesting idea that even gold is truly valueless inherently and just like fiat currency only given value by humans. So while it will cost you over a thousand dollars to get one tiny gold coin, this lady in the middle of a poor war torn nation is carrying some in her pocket.
