Even if we got rid of paper now,nothing would change.Those two metals, especially gold are in the hands of bankers (IMF).
They have sold most of it all they have is paper gold basically its been leased out to dealer and the way a lease works is you keep ownership of the asset but the end user need/wants gold thus they had to deliver like a dealership would deliver a leased car.
Well if they try to call that gold back they would collapse the bullion banks that sold them. This is all documented the central banks have no gold and fort nox is empty.
I am not religious but in my studies of gold and silver I came across this line in the bible:They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed;
The nut jobs look at that and say you will throw silver and gold away but they did not take the time to find out what language it was translated from and what the writer meant! I did.
The language was Aramaic and it had no word for MONEY and at the time it was written, governments started taking over the minting of gold and silver coins and was debasing them with cheap metals. Well, knowing this it does take a act from god to figure out that what the writer meant to say translated so you can understand is, the money will be come worthless and people with throw it away and the public gold be sold or the gold coins will be debased.
Well, central banks have done just that in an overly complex manor to obfuscate what they have done.
