Hungry Gamesfor The Blue State Conservative
Say there! Did ya catch that crazy article by Birsin Filip out of the Mises Institute: “Multinational Agrichemical Corporations and the Great Food Transformation”? No? Too bad! It’s a real knee-slapper! Personally, I would have titled it “Hungry Games” – a little play on words that might attract readers with something sounding less interesting than my college thesis: “The Sex Life of the Canadian Hockey Puck”. At least I got points for humor while not enough to rise above C level.
It’s a safe bet – assuming the current public school ‘reading for comprehension’ rate – you’re not going to invest 15 minutes of your life to read something as apparently boring as this. Who could blame you when the college football season isn’t over yet? Isn’t “Wheel of Fortune” on tonight? And what about the PA vote count? So there you have it.
What if I told you Birsin’s piece will scare the living crap out of you – as well it should? What if “The Hunger Games” wasn’t all just books and movies, but more accurate than the last weather forecast?
As a Public Service – and because I won’t live long enough to actually witness this – here are a few choice samples that might impress, indeed motivate you in the necessary direction of awareness, self-defense and survival…
- In July 2022, the Canadian government announced its intention to reduce “emissions from the application of fertilizers by 30 percent from 2020 levels by 2030.” In the previous month, the government of the Netherlands publicly stated that it would implement measures designed to lower “nitrogen pollution some areas by up to 70 percent by 2030,” in order to meet the stipulations of the European “Green Deal,” which aims to “make the EU’s climate, energy, transport and taxation policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 percent by 2030, compared to 1990 levels.”
- Dutch “farm and agriculture organizations said the targets were not realistic and called for a protest,” which led farmers and their supporters to rise up across the country. The artificially designed Green Deal is one of the goals of Agenda 2030, which was adopted by 193 member states of the United Nations (UN) in 2015.
- UN Agenda 2030 is also supported by a number of other international organizations and institutions, including the European Union, the World Economic Forum (WEF), and the Bretton Woods Institutions, which consist of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). It is also endorsed by some of the most powerful agrichemical multinational corporations in the world, such as BASF, Bayer, Dow Chemical, DuPont, and Syngenta, which, together, control more than 75 percent of the global market for farm inputs.
