If you truly believe the governments are heading back towards a gold standard then you have been browsing too many gold bug and propaganda conspiracy sites. They would never let that happen. The gold standard did not work back then and it is not a solution to solving problems now. They would rather tax you to death, kill the economy, and declare war first before gold is used as cuurency. And even if your "dream" scenario comes to fruition, the world and life as you know it will be nothing like it is today so you would not want it to come true anyways.
