It is arguable that the environmental movement, funded largely by WEFers, is meant to distract from the systematic poisoning of our food and water. Putting aside geo-engineering, which few who farm do, the manipulated science that accompanied Covid flared suspicion about every Big Pharma product. And Big Pharma and Big Ag are married. Covid and the vaccine changed everything and everybody, even those who profited from it egregiously like the upper .01 percent. Naomi Wolf recently visited the denizens of the Upper East Side to find the former Masters of the Universe now feeling shame, going grey, wearing sweatpants, and confessing their injuries.
Recently, MIT invited Steve Kirsch to speak to undergraduates about the dangers of the Covid vaccine, a remarkable turnaround. Out in the wilder, wider world, throughout the early 2020s, a shift to rural areas took place. Many left the developed world to move to a freer (for them) developing nation. The principal driver on the right was suspicion of Covid, the vaccine, and the sudden authoritarianism shown by government. But the pandemic’s “science” and propaganda was so egregious, so absurd, that suspicions rose across the political spectrum about the the food we eat, the water we drink, and the pharma products we take. Even childhood vaccines are now showing a diminished uptake.
In South and Central America, new communities advertise separation from the superculture, and un-poisoned food, water and air. A community started by an Austrian couple, out in the Paraguayan rangeland prints its own houses, runs its own cattle, grows its own food, and schools its own children. A feature is the deep aquifer beneath their feet, and no over-flights dumping aerosolized metals to shade the sun, as they claim. A video on the community had 400,000 views in its first week. The Telegraph mocked these communities which range geographically from Africa, South-East Asia, various islands to south and central America, as “anti-vaxxers” and “extreme right.” But the left is even more determined to live “clean,” as they call it, and raise free-range children and their “intentional” communities are growing like mushrooms in every corner of the earth.
Back to basics.
Organic food and the extended natural products sector is the fastest-growing consumer food and lifestyle trend in modern history. Big Ag spends millions trying to prove their food is safe, but without much success. In the first months of the pandemic, demand for organic food grew 50 percent. In a market that is $290 billion (out of a $1.3 trillion food-products market), that is a serious signal.
Equally, the resounding blast of propaganda that turned out to be false and destructive has diminished “belief” in “climate change.” Here in Canada, where for a century our media oligopoly benevolently told everyone what to think and they obediently thought it, has lost so many readers and listeners no subsidy can keep up with their failing numbers. The gap between those who think we should starve or freeze because a mythical air-bogeyman is coming, and those refusing sacrifice because carbon dioxide, a plant food, is dangerous, is massive. Trudeau looks like a dead man walking, and his Liberal Party has lost 75 percent of its support. Pretty much the whole country outside the Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal axis self-identifies as extreme right-wing.
Last week, Bayer’s Monsanto was hit with $1.5 billion verdict in latest Roundup case. No matter Big Ag’s lobbying ($163 million annually) and its relentless PR, no one believes them. A simple Google search calls forth 1.2 million counter-arguments linking agricultural chemicals to cancer and other diseases.
The Covid mess has meant people have refocused on Big Pharma’s involvement with Big Ag. And while we are at it, the water? Fluoride, which has been dumped into city water for decades, is widely suspected to cause cognitive impairments, while atrazine, another agricultural chemical in drinking water, bisexes fish, and it plus estrogens in drinking water could be responsible for some (if not all) of the sexual confusion in the young. That Google search yields almost two million results.
