To anyone who hasn’t been paying attention, just the title, “THE ANTI-FOOD AGENDA” has got to sound bat-poop crazy. Who can be anti-food? We all need food to survive. Who can be against it? Well, as crazy as it sounds there is indeed an anti-food agenda. The proverbial ‘They’ prove it every day with their actions and their policies. To start with I want to take a quick look at an article published in the UN Chronicle in 2008, titled: The Benefits of World Hunger. It was written by George Kent, a political science professor at the University of Hawaii. Here is how he opens.
“We sometimes talk about hunger in the world as if it were a scourge that all of us want to see abolished, viewing it as comparable with the plague or aids. But that naïve view prevents us from coming to grips with what causes and sustains hunger. Hunger has great positive value to many people. Indeed, it is fundamental to the working of the world’s economy. Hungry people are the most productive people, especially where there is a need for manual labour. We in developed countries sometimes see poor people by the roadside holding up signs saying ‘Will Work for Food.’ Actually, most people work for food. It is mainly because people need food to survive that they work so hard either in producing food for themselves in subsistence-level production, or by selling their services to others in exchange for money. How many of us would sell our services if it were not for the threat of hunger?….When we sell our services cheaply, we enrich others, those who own the factories, the machines and the lands, and ultimately own the people who work for them. For those who depend on the availability of cheap labour, hunger is the foundation of their wealth.”
He finishes with this thought. “For those of us at the high end of the social ladder, ending hunger globally would be a disaster. If there were no hunger in the world, who would plow the fields? Who would harvest our vegetables? Who would work in the rendering plants? Who would clean our toilets? We would have to produce our own food and clean our own toilets. No wonder people at the high end are not rushing to solve the hunger problem. For many of us, hunger is not a problem, but an asset.”[i] If you want to know what the elites think of us, we need go no farther.
And this was a serious article, not satire or a parody. Climate Depot reported, “The author of the article, Professor George Kent, told Climate Depot on July 6, 2022, that the UN article is most definitely not a ‘satire’ but intended to be ‘provocative.’ The UN is now trying to erase history by deleting the essay and falsely pretending that it was merely a ‘satire.’”[ii]
So, in the recent past we’ve covered actions taken by governments here and around the globe that are directly threatening our food supply. Here’s a quick review before moving on to some new territory. Of course, there are the fires to food processing facilities along with closings. These now number in the hundreds. Many millions of chickens have been culled due to the Avian flu. One farm closed down and killed-off a herd of 5 million based on one PCR test. Railroads have refused to deliver feed to dairy herds. Fertilizer is in short supply and railroads, again, have limited delivery. California has been dumping water that could be used for irrigation into the ocean. California’s new law has put 70,000 truckers out of work. And then there’s the Netherlands where the government is cutting “emissions of pollutants, predominantly nitrogen oxide and ammonia, by 50% nationwide by 2030.”[iii] Mercola writes: “This ‘green’ policy will cut livestock production in the country by 30% in the next year, put farmers out of business, and force them to sell their land. Since The Netherlands is the largest meat exporter in the European Union, it will also result in meat shortages around the world.”
Late last year, the Friedman School of Nutrition Science at Tufts University trotted out something called the Food Compass, a nutrient profiling system aimed at changing the way we eat. But wait until you hear some of the ratings. Dr Joseph Mercola points out some of their bizarre ratings. “Food Compass rates Frosted Mini Wheats as three times healthier than ground beef, with a score of 87 out of 100, compared to 26 for ground beef
Food Compass also gives high scores to fries, Lucky Charms, Honey Nut Cheerios, chocolate covered almonds and almond M&Ms, while rating whole egg fried in butter, cheddar cheese and ground beef as foods that should be avoided. Based on this tool, you’ll be healthier if you replace whole egg, cheddar cheese and ground beef with candy. Studies have repeatedly shown that diets high in processed foods lead to poor health and depression.” This of course is right in line with the wishes of the World Economic Forum which wants to “roll out a new food system based entirely on patented, processed imitation foods, including lab-grown and plant- or fungi-based ‘meats’ and ‘clean, green’ protein alternatives such as cricket meal and mealworms.”[iv]
