At the core of all the economic, financial and agricultural disasters being experienced around the world is the ideology and philosophy of globalism.  Globalism is nothing less than the concerted efforts to destroy economies and governments and to destroy sovereign nations in every part of the world for the personal gain and edification of a few select individuals and corporations.

 

At the core of this philosophy is the obsession to overtake agriculture and the ability of each nation to feed them selves.  The access to food and ability to produce food is the biggest obstacle to those who seek world domination.  If several million of us starve to death while the World Trade Organization and the World Bank orchestrate one calamity after another…so what? 

 

As a result of world wide efforts and facilitated by the unregulated and rampant assault on biodiversity by bio-pirates, pesticide and herbicide producers whose goals are to increase control and profits regardless of how many of the worlds people starve, the US is verging on losing its ability to feed itself as food is exported in the name of globalism or is limited by bio-pirates who have corrupted and patented life forms. While we lose that ability we are being slowly poisoned to death as water and land become contaminated from the overuse of toxic chemicals and the planting of gmo seeds.  

 

The greatest threat to the populations of the world is the sale and forced use of [terminator or traitor seeds]; a seed which the USDA helped develop and patent here in the US.  The development of traitor seeds renders any “humanitarian” arguments as false.

 

The World Trade Organization’s insistence on unregulated trade and what they refer to as [structural adjustments policies] meaning the implementation of economically destructive bi-lateral free trade agreements which usurp individual sovereign laws and protections, has caused poorer nations to drop self protective tariffs designed to protect local agriculture.  It is estimated that 845 million people go hungry in the world each day.  80% of those facing hunger are small family farmers from developing countries who produced food for local consumption. 

 

The proposed pieces of legislation now in both houses of our congress are meant to do nothing more than eradicate local farming and ranching operations in the US in favor of centralized industrial operations.  If any one of these bills pass, the newly created agency will effectively police and enforce WTO and globalist agendas. 

 

As a result of globalism and unregulated free trade, [which is not the same as free enterprise or fair trade] hedge funds, private speculators and stock traders have turned food from a human right into a bargaining “for profit” tool.  Apparently when speculators or investors are betting on how high they can push the price of food for profit, they never acknowledge there are people starving as a result.  What is even more apparent is that they don’t care.  Food for profit by investors has super-ceded the right to food by human beings.

 

Hunger is no accident but for the worlds multi-national corporate plunderers and bio-pirates who operate out of the WTO, not a consideration.  The creation of an unsustainable debt industry meant to destabilize world economies leaves millions without the ability to purchase food as their nations are driven into un-repayable debt. 

 

What does the WTO mean by structural adjustments?  Using a 1994 loan from the International Monetary Fund (World Bank) WTO as an example, WTO insisted on express provisions which forced Haiti to open its markets to globalist free trade effectively wiping out local rice farmers.  Rice farming ended as the US dumped massive amounts of subsidized rice into that country. Now, Haitians cannot afford even the most basic of foods as rice and other foods have reached unaffordable levels.   Food-aid comes at such a high price in these situations.  It isn’t given freely or out of humanitarian considerations; it is bargained for, speculated on, and tagged to untenable future agreements which will drive Haiti and other countries unfortunate enough to be caught in this trap into total ruin, making them ripe for international plundering and economic rape.

 

As millions around the world face daily starvation, multi-national corporations monopolize seeds sales and post record profits while leaving many countries without the resources needed to sustain their populations.  

 

The UN meantime,  fine tunes its [stamping out] policy in an effort to reduce the availability of animals that could be used for food and our Homeland Security Department plans a June showing of this technique of dropping entire herds and all wildlife in a given area. 

 

The globalization of the entire system of food has resulted in mass starvation.  40 countries now face mass starvation and are experiencing food riots while the United Nations, the World Trade Organization and World Bank pretend they don’t know or feign concern and fail to acknowledge less than half the grain produced around the world goes to feed human beings.  Instead, food is being used to create bio-fuels and feed for animals. 

 

Our government is no less culpable as it seeks to enrich corporate donors at the expense not only of our nation, but of the world.

 

Its too bad there isn’t a stock indexed to human misery, a veritable fortune could be made by those who value profits more than human life.
