The Queen’s Speech was interesting this year.
For all the people outside the UK who don’t understand what the “Queens Speech” actually is, it’s a farcical state occasion in which the Queen (or, in this case, Prince Charles since her majesty is ill/secretly dead/having “mobility issues”) makes a speech about what “her government” intends to do for the next 12 months.
Of course, the Queen doesn’t actually write the speech, or have any input on its content, or have any control at all over what “her” government intends to do. She’s just a mouthpiece in a big gold hat.
It’s the UK equivalent of the State of the Union, only done in Halloween costumes made out of shiny stolen rocks.
The whole thing is nothing but a grand, gilt statement of intent from the British Deep State, wrapped in mink and draped in medals they never earned. It’s a joke, but it is worth listening to.
Or, if you have a sensitive stomach, you can just read the full text the next day on the UK government’s website (that’s what I do).
A lot of the content is entirely predictable.
More money to Ukraine, with a promise the UK will “lead the way in championing security around the world”. More online censorship via the “Online Safety Bill”. A compulsory register for homeschooled children via the “Schools Reform Bill”.
There’s also mention of “securing the constitution” by introducing the UK’s own “Bill of Rights”. We broke down that particular Trojan Horse back in February.
But the part I found most interesting is the stated plan to “encourage agricultural and scientific innovation at home” via the proposed Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill.
The proposed bill (which, for some reason is not available through the parliament website) follows on from DEFRA’s announced “loosened regulation” of genetic research back in January.
To quote the National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB), the legislation would “take certain precision breeding techniques out of the scope of restrictive GMO rules”.
Essentially, this would see new “gene-edited” foods as distinct from old-fashioned “genetically modified” foods, and therefore not subject to the same rules and oversight.
The claimed distinction is that gene editing, as opposed to genetic modification, doesn’t introduce DNA from other species. Therefore, in effect, is merely speeding up what could potentially naturally happen over time.
Now, you might think this is just semantics, and that such a law will just provide a loophole for ALL “genetically modified” foods to simply rebrand themselves as “genetically edited” foods, and thereby avoid regulation. But that is disgustingly cynical and shame on you for even thinking it.
All in all, this is pretty on-message stuff, and not especially surprising. What’s noteworthy is – by pure happenstance, I’m sure – it appears to coincide with a renewed push on the GM food front in other countries all over the world.
In December 2021, Switzerland added an amendment to its moratorium on GMO crops, permitting the use of certain “gene editing” techniques.
Last month, Egypt announced their new strain of GM wheat. Just two days ago, Ethiopia’s National Agricultural Biotechnology Research Center announced they had researched, and the country will now be growing, genetically modified cotton and maize.
Despite Russia’s sweeping ban on the cultivation and/or importing of genetically modified crops, they have nonetheless created a 111 billion Ruble project to create up to 30 varieties of genetically edited plants and farm animals.
Britain’s deregulation of GM food is always described as a “post-Brexit” move – with the EU chided around the world for its “precautionary principle” on GM crops – and yet as long ago as last April, the EU was calling for a “rethink” on GM crops.
In fact, just today, European Biotechnology Magazine reports:
The EU Commission has launched its final consultation on the deregulation of new breeding techniques in agriculture
Why this? Why now?
So, we’re seeing a sudden increase in the variety of GM crops available and a simultaneous push for deregulation of the industry in Western nations.
Why would they be doing this now?
Well, there is a food crisis.
Or, more accurately, they have just created a food crisis. And as the cliched Hegelian dialectic inevitably goes, their manufactured “problem” is now in need of their contrived “solution”.
We should expect to see genetic engineering pitched as a solution to our food crisis in the very near future…like yesterday. Or indeed, two months ago.
That’s how fast they work now, with barely a pretence at concealing the plan. Spitting out the answer so fast they make it obvious they knew the question beforehand.
On March 15th, when the “special operation” in Ukraine was less than 3 weeks old, the Time was already headlining:
War forces farmers to think again about GM crops
Genetic modification could make Britain’s food system less susceptible to geopolitical turmoil
A week later Verdict published an article titled “Improving food self-sufficiency with GM crops during geopolitical crises”
Last week, the Times of Israel asked:
Can gene editing help farmers satisfy the rising demand for food?
Four days ago, the Manila Times published an article titled “In times of food scarcity: Revisiting genetically modified crops”.
Two days ago (so before the Queen’s speech specifically mentioning the gene editing bill), Scotland’s Press & Journal ran an opinion piece headlined: “Scottish Government must lift GM crop ban to ease cost of living crisis”.
Yesterday, the “information services” company IHS Markit published an article on GM regulation in Europe, in which they claimed:
The Ukraine-Russia conflict has demonstrated the fragility and vulnerability of global and European food supply chains. Around the world, governments in leading agricultural-producing countries are now catching up with the United States, both to better legislate gene-edited (GE) products, as well as differentiate them from the older Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) technology, and its negative connotations to some consumers, commentators, farmers, retailers, politicians and lawmakers.
And just today, the Genetic Literacy Project published an article by Ukrainian-Canadian David Zaruk, railing against the EU’s “precautionary principle” on GMOs and calling for an embracing of “new technology” to prevent widespread hunger and increase food sovereignty.
It goes on and on and on.
…let’s not forget climate change, guys
Of course, it’s not all about the food crisis – giving corporate giants free rein to genetically alter all the food we eat will also be good for the planet. They talk about that a lot recently.
On February 8th this year, the University of Bonn published a new study claiming “Genetic engineering can have a positive effect on the climate”
On February 24th this year, the Cornell-based NGO “Alliance for Science” published an article claiming “GMOs could shrink Europe’s climate footprint”, based on the study mentioned above.
In a response to the Queen’s Speech, the UK’s National Institute of Agriculture and Botany claimed that genetic modification will make farming “more sustainable”.
In a reminder we’re not just talking about crops but genetically engineering livestock as well, in February Deutsche Welle suggested that genetically altered “Climate sheep and eco pigs could combat global heating”.
Three weeks ago, Stuff.NZ asked simply:
Can GM save the planet?”
The narrative is clearly set: Genetically engineered food will save us all from the food crisis, and global warming too. Plus anything else they can think of.
The knives are out for organics
Not content with the semi-constant fluffing of the GM business, the MSM are also turning their guns on organic farming and giving it both barrels.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Ukraine Crisis Reveals the Folly of Organic Farming: As food prices skyrocket, the world needs to admit it can’t live without modern, efficient agriculture.
The Telegraph blames organic farming policies for “tipping Sri Lanka into bloody chaos”
The “Allliance for Science” article mentioned above goes out of its way to criticise the EU’s pro-organic “farm to fork” plans, claiming “[organic farming] has lower yields and would be associated with increases in global [greenhouse gas] emissions by causing land-use changes elsewhere”.
Meanwhile, Erik Fyrwald, the CEO of the Swiss agrochemicals group Syngenta (so possessing somewhat of a conflict of interests), told Swiss newspaper NZZ am Sonntag that the West must “stop organic farming to help future food crisis”, adding that organic farming is worse for the planet, because ploughing up fields releases more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
We already saw wellness “cults” accused of peddling “anti-vax conspiracy theories” last year, this will easily extend to organic farmers and their customers.
NOTE: In an interesting (again, probably totally accidental) parallel, the currently simmering “Bird Flu outbreak” has also hit organic and free-range farmers hard, with one (sponsored) Guardian article asking if “year-round” bird flu could spell “the end of free-range eggs”.
Having just seen how the Covid19 “vaccine” campaign unfolded, it’s not hard to see how the pro-GM push will go from here. Genome-edited crops and farm animals are going to become the new “settled science”.
They will be sold to the public as cheaper, more nutritious, better for the environment and good for “preventing future pandemics” (yes, they literally did say that already).
Naturally, anyone who resists the push for gene-edited food, and/or mourns the planned death of organic farming, will be accused of “questioning the science”.
Eating British GM foods will be “doing your part” and “helping Ukraine”, while people who want more expensive organic products will be deemed “unpatriotic” or “selfish”.
Just as we saw Covid sceptics denounced as spreading “Russian disinformation”, despite Russia’s willing complicity in the Covid lie, those who argue against genome-edited food will be said to be “sharing Russian talking points” or “doing Putin’s work for him” despite Russia being well onboard the gene-editing train.
It all gets very predictable from there. Organic farmers will probably be “anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorist Russian spies” by the end of the summer.
…This probably explains why Bill Gates was buying up so much farmland last year, too.

Some food for thought. Interesting.
If you are living in the totalitarian West you are screwed in so many ways it’s hard to know where to begin. Pack up and get out while you still can, even a 3rd world existence will prove to be a better option.
Much, much better. I saw this crap coming and left nearly 20 years ago, to SE Asia. My life is ridiculously good now, helping other people online when not fishing and hiking. Sadly much of the madness has reached this place too.
Kit Nightly scores well on demagogic skills, after all, democratic people are ever enviously hostile towards everything above their heads and everything superior. But mocking a royal family in a two centuries overdate cheap imitative way is also outdated, as royal families are all democratically degenerated. Thus, what they do is to imitate and parrot, which is what elites do, and which is what everybody does in a democracy.
Forward you peasants! crush the infamy, ah sorry, already been done, crush the oppressor royal family, hang them! those shiny rock thieves! uhm, but these people with ‘costumes made out of shiny stolen rocks’ are these days just repeating what others have told them. Actually, THEY are slaves of the people, they are only there because the people still want a royal theater show, otherwise equality becomes boring and grey as hell. They are actually playing a colorful clown theater for the people, they have no power anymore. But granted, they are not wearing the commercial mass production clothes like the rest, and not uniform suits like our representation does. How dare they distinguish themselves from us! Rise, oppressed peasants! But where are the oppressed peasants actually, there are only decadent city and suburb dwellers nowadays, among which, someone calling himself Kit.
You’re both wrong. The British royal family still has a lot of power, far more than most realize
That is something else than the talking suits wearing the uniforms of democracy, or the slouch clothes of ordinary man. And the pearls of democracy, the ideals and ideas, are stolen too. Even the quoted sentence is just a bad imitative mockery which was done better already two centuries ago. Anything in our mass democracies is a farce or a bad imitation, whether it involves elites or ordinary people.
There will be one answer by the sheep (-le) to all this: “maehhhhh”.

I find it ironic that the left’s elite are pushing GMO foods and fighting organics, in complete opposition to the beliefs of the rank and file left. But then, that rank and file have always been dupes. They will awaken too late from their utopian dreams into a living nightmare.
Gene edited former humans eats gene edited “things” former known as food.
What an absolute horror show.
I just watched a 30-min program, Breaking New Ground, about an Australian farmer, Charles Massy, who, when his farm was going under because of unsustainable practices, realised he needed to change and started practicing regenerative farming. Our land is one of “droughts and flooding rains” as the poem goes and you can do whatever you like with gene-editing and GMO but your soil needs to hold water and nutrients not blow away in dust storms when there’s drought or wash away when there’s floods. What’s the gene-editing solution for that? It’s so ridiculously short-sighted.
If you’re interested.
This is terrifying but hardly surprising. The systematic destruction of real food has been a reality for 30 years or even more. We as a society are way to domesticated, too enslaved and too dependent on the system to fight back now. After what we have seen the last 2 years I think it is obvious that the defenders of freedom are a minority. The argument “we are many and they are few” seems to be true no more; we are few and when it comes to do something effective, there are even fewer souls.
How many people are waiting for “the people to rise”? Most of us are waiting for the revolution to happen, bloody, spiritual or cultural. We keep waiting for somebody to save the day: messiahs, leaders, heroes and superheroes, the peoples…
If you want real food, nutritious food, non GM, without poisons you have to grow it yourself or support somebody who grows it. Is this so difficult to understand?
If we keep buying the fake, poisoned food coming from the big supermarket chains, grown intensively by big agribusiness, genetically modified by pharmaceutical companies, fertilized and poisoned, how can we even complain of the current situation?
We don´t vote with ballots, that is another lie; we vote with our money, our energy, our time and our attention.
We need to stop feeding, clothing and arming the bad guys and complaining that the bad guys are ruining and killing the good guys. It is not easy to confront our own hypocrisy, but it is necessary. We are being accessories to our own demise.
Small organic farms: (a) If you know someone trying to start up, support him with capital or labour (b) Provide routine support through purchases, publicity and even distribution.
Insects need to be a lot bigger, have more legs and breed faster. GE and GMO has such a promising future.
You gotta give it to GE, they know their technology… I’ve had my GE Bugcooker for 35 years, never had any problems
Now, planned obsolescence rules, together with double-talk on reducing scrapped appliances.
Jesse Gelsinger was gene edited… Jesse was a rare person for, unlike the many who will be the Gene Therapists experimental subjects, Jesse’s fate got publicised…(though, he has since become a nearly forgotten footnote of “genetic science”)…
‘The Machine Model of Biology: The attack on God, and one scientist who tried to warn us’ – Cilia Farber:
“Gelsinger was injected with an adenoviral vector carrying a corrected gene to test the safety of the procedure.”
The same adenoviral vectors in the Astra Zeneca, Johnson and Johnson, Sputnik and Chinese covid vaccines.
Oh btw, anybody noticed anything special with the weather in the past week or so… after being close to zero celsius for the beginning of May (ridiculous even here), Montreal (which is a northern island), feels like Phoenix Arizona. There’s this big sun on top of our head, not a single cloud, and even at 23 deg (yesterday) you feel COOKED. Now Montreal is always wet. ALWAYS! (Would be a tourist attraction but quite the opposite in this way)… I checked the humidity level… 6 %!?!?!?!…. I suspect while everyone was brilliantly commenting on world events, that Elon Musk as turned up the dial on his toys…. “Data is the new gold” E. Musk
So come on, it’s a yes or no question. Anything looking like this in your miserable city in the past 5-6 days?
Well I’ve had a headache for all these days, and a constant asthma attack, can’t catch my breath, feel a preasure in my chest… hey wait a minute 😀 Get it? Yeah and I’m fucking depressed. Anyone? Anyone?
Yeah, nearly everybody I know in middle England the same. Even those weird ones who don’t smoke or drink and exercise regularly… Infact even my kids, in their twenties, and otherwise living their best lives. Lethargic, unmotivated and feeling a bit lost.
Thank you so much
Same here, headache, feel poisoned, like a bad allergy, irritative dry caught, there were a lots of c.trail lines in the past days. We had some rain, surprise, as in the last 3 years we had extremely dry springs and summers, clouds yes, rain no. Middle of England. They use clouds to hide the trails, I saw it from the plane.
Yes. The EMF in Canada is out of control. And the weather is crazy. It’s like July-August temps in May, without the 80-90% humidity. Going from snow one week to sweltering temperatures the next. Weather warfare.
The DoD is using DEW in Orange County to start fires. The more weather related disasters or anomalies created, the more easily accepted the pre-planned, restrictive measures, become.
And they’re not gonna make us swallow that this is a progressive global warming effect… these happen in brutal bursts… almost over night here… a what 25 degree increase?!?!… I saw reports of stunning wild fires in… SIBERIA this week!?!?
And stop playing hard to get and tell me where you are… Canada… I know… Are you near a coast at least?…😘
Ha. No. Although I’ve never understood why Canadians think a lake is a beach. You already know, Ontario. Just outside of Toronto.
I didn’t KNOW because New Brunswick is also “une province voisine”!…. but thank you
I told you forever ago. lol
All I remember is “une province voisine”… That was at the beginning of a looong challenging relationship… But yeah, could have been said one Friday night of mine
Yep. It was one of those Friday nights. I live in the province where they pretend one of the fat-fuck-Ford brothers win (S)elections.
– … but it runs in the family
– Nobody runs in your family
Indeed. I don’t understand why Canadians don’t realize all their “politicians“ are picked for them, and elections aren’t real. Dynasties only exist within dictatorships.
I think the dictatorship part is the “cute” part… It’s the systematic raping of humanity I have a problem with
I dunno, but at certain times you can tell the clouds are fake. Woke up at five once and went outside “Yup, those guys are right”
Hypothesis: since the beginning of the pandemic, chemtrails stopped to allow better favegee transmission. From then on, real clouds. The fake ones were from the past 10 years, loading you w conductive metals making u an antenna. I would also ditch the covid “protection” of loading your cells w zinc, pushed in with quenin… I mean, now
Well that was disgusting. Are you idiots done?
sorry bro. cities blow.
I wasn’t expecting anything deep
We are doomed if we as a society and as individuals cannot feed ourselves healthy, nourishing food. Food that has not been turned into an industrial product with chemicals and genetic engineering. Americans thought they had taken care of this with their FDA (Food and Drug Association) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). But no, those agencies are corrupt and “captured” by the very corporations that seek to industrialize our food. And the Congress, the Presidency, and the Supreme Court are blind to the situation, perhaps deliberately so.
Representative democracy is not looking good these days. Not as long as personal and corporate wealth are in control. I cannot see how we can feed ourselves properly as long as the wealthy are more focused on using the govt. to increase their wealth, and at our expense.

In a not so distant future, restaurant robots will be taking orders like this: Let’s see…I’d like the lab-grown meatloaf, with sides of vaccinated salad and GMO freedom fries, and a genetic slurry for dessert. Oh yeah, let me start out with some rare insect hors d’oeuvres – Enjoy ze bugs!
It was all completed yesterday.
Our task now is to reverse it with every fibre of our being.
You don’t just sit down and shut up when this level of monstrosity is actually encouraged in the halls of power…
Please do not knock the eating of insects ,and other arthropods (scorpions and spiders).What you don’t realise is those food prevented many poor Thais from starving to death.
If you have ever been to Thailand ,and drinking at a bar you may have been offered cooked red ants,or cooked grasshoppers,or crickets,or even spiders.
Quite good washed down with Thai or Lao beer.
The farming of small animals (arthropods) is a serious endeavour requiring ongoing research.
Get out of your Anglo bubble and begin to enjoy life for goodness sake.
Six-legged livestock: Edible insect farming, collection and marketing in Thailand
by Yupa Hanboonsong, Tasanee Jamjanya and Patrick B. Durst
Insects need to be a lot bigger, have more legs and breed faster. GE and GMO has such a promising future.
More legs equals Australian spiders as big as dinner plates – and they’re not G.M.
Most of them are deep fried in vegetable fat …. enjoy your heart attack.
I’ve eaten insects. I’d just like to have the choice to do so, rather than have some virtue-signaling diet to save the earth shoved down my throat as part of forced austerity by those feasting off human misery. If you call that Anglo, perhaps your bubble needs to burst.
I am afraid I’ll become a criminal them as I’ll sooner hunt down and eat her majesty’s swan then any bug. Nice, big, lots of meat however Polish people said the taste was a bit off. 🙂
Exactly. They taste like Chicken Skin. But I don’t want to be forced to eat something with that much oil.
The push to include insects in the normal Western diet reveals yet another glaring contradiction in the “ruling elites'” narrative.
Because of climate change (about which I’m more a believer than a skeptic), the insect population has supposedly fallen by as much as 90% in some areas.
A 90% drop – and yet they want us to seriously consider insects as a food source?
If there are so few insects left, shouldn’t they be put on the Endangered Species list rather than the menu?
Are you joking? This and the “Ultra-MAGA” Story is giving me hope that we’re ruled by stupid people rather than villains after all.
Even if I would be willing to eat them, where are they? They mostly disappeared, some hungry looking small spiders and fat slugs the all we have. No pollinators, nothing (middle of UK)
Yup. I had it well explained to me in a pub recently. Bloke was pointing out how often we need to clean our car windscreens from bug splats nowadays. I can remember having to sponge my windscreen after every drive. Last few years just hasn’t been necessary. Was a big table we were sitting at and i could see this point hitting home to everybody there. Also I see more bees on the ground dying than what I see flying. (Stafford)
“Waiter , there isnt a fly in my soup ! “
Shush dont tell anybody they all wont want one.
Thought someone may of done that but I had to do the punchline myself.Elon musk spaceship fool car park nobhead.

I’ve believed for years that farmers were being deliberately short-changed to force them to sell their land so that Big Agro can take over – it’s communism by the back door. The same forces that created Bolshevism are at it again (Tsar Vladimir is their target today). HuffPost (yes, I know, but I get my email from there…) ran an article last week ‘asking’ if organic food was a Trojan horse for bacteria – fits this narrative exactly. I’m quite terrified for my young kids – what do we do to stop this Global Government madness?
Buy rural land if you can and learn how to grow food. Learn how to forage. Learn how to preserve your harvest. That’s what we can do. Teach by example.

How will you solve the extreme weather incidents? Like dry-since-5G/satellite rollout UK? Weeks pass even in spring without a proper amount of rain since 2020 March. But even if there would be rain, what will it bring down? How do you solve the lack of pollinators? The compost they sell now is good for nothing, the peat-free con.
They’ll make DIY farming illegal. Or have they done that already Down Under?
That Vladimir is also a WEF puppet.

‘Tis of an old butcher, I must bring him in,
Charges two bob a pound and he thinks it’s no sin,
Puts his thumb on the scale and makes ’em go down,
Then he swears it’s good weight, though it wants half a pound.
Now, next comes the publican, I must bring him in,
Charges four pence a quart and he thinks it’s no sin,
When he brings in the quart, well, the measure is short,
The top of the pot is popped off with the froth!
Now, the very best plan that I ever did find,
Was to puff them all off in a huge gale of wind,
And when they got up on a cloud it would burst,
And the biggest old rascal comes tumblin’ down first.

Oh Ukraine! Left sites are continuing to produce at a rate far in advance of their dismal trickle over the “covid years”. You can feel their relief – almost an ecstasy – at finally having something to actually talk about where their “razor sharp insights” will gain some traction in the media theatre.
European Left towards the very End of the 19th Century is different to North American Left, European left say post 1901 in practice was guided by Italian Fascism leading to ie: Italian Libyan war realisation.
Reality actual World History.
North American left post 1919 or 1946 could only be led by deliberations in conjunction with property leasing business modelling., as recent events clearly show by those with more perceptive capacities in current tense.
Wherever your left is it’s probably adapting to circumstances.
I suspect these “precision breeding techniques” are as precise as the covid vaccines are “safe and effective”.
Or military “surgical strikes” with minimal “collateral damage”.
They are effective for those who think outside the box., for examples of New Normal regarding DC a nominal is the Patriot Act. Step back and flow though it beginning say 97. It maybe easier although I don’t specifically why, not being an American.
Thank Goodness for professional mechanical engineering you can also learn a lot about the World around us, by watching how these people work to explain unfortunate airplane disasters. I mention this spectically because inverted Racism new normal fronted by extreme feminist ideologies in 20-21 remakes. 22 programs on platforms like you-tube may or not become more extremely hypocritically multiculturally racist. That is disgustingly demeaning to the men and women who lived through it totally.
And look how men and women react to these circumstances they want to help in anyway possible.
Their daily lives stop, ours does not because we are not there.
Kim is right. “Gene editing” has the same potential to screw up food production as any other industrial process. The Earth is being treated as though it’s our personal laboratory experiment. Good luck with that…

The GMO push makes me unbelievably angry. I have to take deep breaths to calm my raging nervous system, but I suppose it’s the appropriate response to criminals destroying the food supply necessary for our survival. I also HATE that people will believe these psychopaths because it’s published in the MSM and whatever the NYT or Guardian says is directly from God. Lord help us!
In other news, an art show I’m featured in is running this week in London if you can make it! It’s being run by Alex Heaton (who got arrested last year with Piers Corbyn for promoting truth), and is called “The Cure is Worse than the Alleged Disease.” It’s at Secret Art Gallery. Four of my portraits of vaccine victims are there, and I just posted my 100th portrait on my instagram @covidvictimsportraits. Half of proceeds from sales will go directly to vaccine victims. Thank you to anyone London who can show their support for artists fighting for the cause!!
It’s horrifying and it makes me so angry too. Actually I’ve been angry for at least a couple decades and have a vaccine injured 3 year old grand baby.
So, thank you. I’m very far from London but can appreciate your efforts to bring awareness to this travesty none the less. We each can do what we can do in our own way.
Can you send over some photos after the show?
The latest from Dr. Gary Sidley:
“In collaboration with the Smile Free campaign, I have written an open letter (see link below) to NHS chief executives demanding immediate removal of the mask requirement. Irrespective of whether your are a healthcare professional, scientist or a member of the general public, please support our campaign by:
The fundamental problem is their scientism derived from Gnosticism and Luciferianism where they see nature like a Lego-set which can be disassembled and reassembled in whatever combinations take their fancy. In their world view, nothing has an instinsic nature because that would mean acknowledging their is a higher power than themselves to which they must submit.
Wake Up. It is derived from The Old Testament, like the other isms you mentioned: “gnosticism and luciferianism ” are judaeo-christian concepts used to confuse their victims as to who the real perpetrator is.
A real “higher power” would not require submission (or else). Only an intelligent predator/parasite does that, and that is exactly what the false god of Abraham is.
Yes. Absolutely. The god of Abraham is an engineered (man-made) Satan. Gnostic scholars pointed this glaring error out prior to the 3rd century AD and were summarily slaughtered for their views.
Huh, something similar to Gnosticism crossed my mind a couple times before.
MSM sure loves Bill Gates worldview. I bet all his new bought farms will be the testing grounds for this. It’s almost like you can track their future plans by looking at what he’s doing at the moment…
Also, are there actually any Greta-style activists that support this? I don’t think so. The MSM got a real head scratcher last year when the solar geo stuff Bill was pushing was universally rejected. I don’t see how they can push this either without getting the whole environmental movement and all indigenous groups against them.

All these claims for GM crops have been falsified, despite oligarchic hindrances:
:- hardier varieties
:- less need for agro-chemicals – claimed despite modifications to resist proprietary stuff
:- greater yields
:- more nutrients
:- safety of crop, produce and agro-chemicals for people, farming and biomes
:- overall economic viability.
What is lost in this great researched article by Kit, is that the danger is not with the gene editing in Roundup Ready crops such as soy, canola, corn and cotton etc, but in the massive dump of chemicals into the soil which has stopped the food chain. Humans ingest these chemicals which are not part of our evolution. When we destroy the microbes and fungi in the soil that the little critters like worms, beetles, etc feed on, there’s nothing for the songbirds to eat. Life feeds on life. No bees no pollination. Too much heat and drought lead to grain loss, which, is the most important human food.
Grains are a lousy food, offering little more than empty calories. Better than starving but the evidence of my eyes suggests that this is not a major problem in the West.
I read that all seeds contain some poisonous substance. You can reduce it by soaking the seeds for a few hours, before cooking.
Some sort of poison is a plant’s only defence. They don’t run too fast. Of those considered as foods I believe kidney beans are the worst (or possibly cassava).
Hello JohnOtvos: You are right. Chemical dumping has massively altered the health of soil microbes and destroyed the ability of soils to support life itself. When the microbes die, we die…

Psychology boarded the bus a couple of years ago. It is trying to stigmatise the wish to eat only unpolluted food as a mental illness.
The fake shock n horror kind of similar feeling to the roe v wade distraction.
Your Cats and Dogs are Gene edited. Hence the genetic issues they came with. Your happy to Spay or Neuter them and then scream my body my choice.
Your talk organic whilst stroking your gene edited Pedigrees BREEDED dog and cat with its vaccination certification registration from the breeders club with it papers it is also chipped just in case it gets stolen even though most of them cant be found after being chipped.
When it gets old and starts shitting its self on your newish carpet and sofas and no longer coming to you when you call its name, then you cant wait to get it put down (euthanasia)
You lot been doing this to your pets.
Do you write fairy tales as well ?
False extrapolation is the refuge of fools.
‘Designer’ dogs are not the result of gene editing. They are about profiteering.
Simple as that.
Do you write fairy tales as well ?
Hollywood does and people like you buy into it.
How do you make a designer dog or cat.?
like One Hundred and One Dalmatians which came out and everyone went out and brought that type of dog.
Does nature make a dog like that ?
Hiltonwith pugs which they had the patent on.
it called GM gene editing or grafting.they been doing it to horses, cows – chickens and pets and plants and humans longer than you’ve been alive.
it also gets the people used to
selective breeding Gene editing-quarantine of pets which normalize it for humans- Chipping –Qr code vaccination passports Spay or Neuter – contraception pill – sterilization – Putting it down – The Liverpool Care Pathway.(euthanasia).
Your argument is fairly stupid because all reproduction involves – according to you – gene editing. The reality is that we inherit our genes. Taking genes and editing them, so that they do not come from living creatures, is something completely different.
Don’t know about cats; but dogs certainly were “engineered” to do what has always been done to other species: to serve man – to do the things either too dangerous or too tedious for humans to do.
Little dogs were bred for chasing/killing small “pests” (and everything that interferes with human rapacity is a “pest”); big dogs were bred for chasing/killing big “pests.”
My ultimate proof that the Biblical “God” cannot be considered benign is its having given man dominion over all other creatures. Unless it’s brain dead, it had to know what the result would be.

That’s a genuinely very good argument.
Dogs and cats are not part of nature and are the result of prehistoric breeding. The dog’s ancestor was the wolf, the cat’s possibly the lynx. They take a heavy toll on native species. A single feral cat can kill 100 endangered small marsupials in a single night. Dogs are routinely taken off the leash in the microscopic reserves that exist, endangering whatever wildlife that has managed to hang on. Every garden that hosts a dog is free of blue tongued skinks and other reptiles.
I have to disagree with this darwinism statement. Humans duid not evolve from monkeys and i do not believe cats and dogs evolved from wolves and lynx. Why is there still wolves monkeys and lynx if that was their evolution. Does not make sense to me never has done. I am 51 now and got detention aged 9 for stating i didnt believe darwins theory and why. Its not proven and just another lie in the web of lies in history
Dogs and cats came from wild dogs and wild cats.
The dog’s ancestor is not the wolf. Some dog breeds that are visibly similar to wolves obviously came from wolves but generally the dog breeding stock came from wild dogs, which are closer to jackals and hyenas than wolves.
A basic observation of how most dogs look and behave, compared to wolves, will show this.
Every garden that hosts a dog is free of blue tongued skinks and other reptiles.
The Cat Genome Project of the NIH showed that the domestic cat evolved from 6 different wild cats at different times. Those wild cats still exist (only one in the UK – the Scottish Wild Cat; none in the US), but no one sees them, so it’s easy to see why you would not be aware of it.
Never saw a dog in Thailand or Bali kill anything. Only the Group-Bus Tourists from China once xD
It’s not the same when they cross breed plants or animals.
it’s how nature works, plants naturally cross breed, we just picked which.
They’re directly editing plants with characteristics that may not be known using techniques that could cause sterility in crops or make it produce chemicals.
in other words, they’re skipping natural processes..
Which just goes to demonstrate why letting humans edit genes is not a recipe for long life and good health, especially if you are a mammal.
When you say ‘you lot’, which lot are you speaking for? Also, are you concerned about the political matters raised by this very-well researched article?

Science can probably create wonderful highly nutritious foods ~if there is a will.
But when Gates & Co. lead the science, what we most likely get is an Emergency Authorisation for untested Frankenstein toxic chemicals; of course, under the guise of fighting some manufactured crisis.
Science only needs to point out the destruction of nutrition, and if it can, provide ways to reduce this damage. However, any direct or indirect benefit it brings to health would make many industries and plutocrats unhappy; that includes the medical industry.
At present, science is involved in (a) removing nutrients during processing to sell at a higher price (b) creating fake foods (c) creating additives to fool the consumer.
Best avoid the term ‘science’, as it is not some unitary entity with moral agency and purpose, so cannot ‘point out’, ‘provide ways’, ‘get involved’ etc. Likewise, we cannot ‘follow the science’ nor ‘trust the science’ as authority so loves to dictate. To do so is another way of being anti-science or scientistic, because it turns sceptical investigation (the scientific process) into blind faith and expert knowledge (provisional, fallible) into godlike dogma beyond question. The practice of science questions old answers; the practice of faith answers old questions.
Great overview in two short paragraphs!!
This excellent piece would be funny if it wasn’t tragic. The moment mankind accepted the rule of money, all these horrors were already bound to happen. Meanwhile, most dissidents are focusing -by design- on “feminism” and unusual sexual behaviours, often even denying there is any serious environmental problem. I see little hope for mankind because it even lacks the awareness of what is going on. We’ve had our skies sprayed for at least the last 30 years and hardly anyone has taken notice.
sprayed with what? where is the lab test showing it?
Dane Wigington of geoengineeringwatch.org has had lab tests done many times and at many locations. His film “The Dimming” documents all that – including the aluminum, strontium, barium, polymers et al being sprayed.
The nano-particles are too small to show up on standard EPA type tests and require special testing equipment.
“Rainwater sample test results from Europe and America showing elevated levels of aluminum, barium and strontium have been compiled at GeoEngineeringWatch.org andChemtrailsProjectUK.com. Many other test results can be found at GlobalSkywatch.com. All over the Internet, from all over the world, countless other verifiable test results have been posted.”
Mate they literally admitted to it on the news back in 2008, blamed it for a flood in Tasmania. Now they flood out the site for some New Town or Smart City or whatever the fuck they’re called, in QLD I believe, and if you ask about it you’re a “Conspiracy Theorist”
“the UK will “lead the way in championing security around the world”
.. here is a fresh headline: ‘UK signs security agreements with Sweden and Finland’
of course, the most important item in such agreements must be: Where the gold reserves are now, and where they should be!!!
Ok, i will try to be concise and on point.
My Da worked as a cereal trials analyst (Niab and commercial) for around 30 yrs.
Cereal development since the late 70 s started to go away from nutritional density of the grain to YIELD, as yield improved the nutritional value fell, anyone that was noticing was either told to shut up or fired (supposition).
A generation of university graduates from the late 50 s (most the first to go to uni in their families), a generation that thought they were doing good for all, were now unwitting slaves of a for profit system.
The issue of “GM” i discussed with my father late 80 s, it was his opinion that “reps” from the big cereal breeders had been making visits to cereal storage facilites for some years and leaving their mark (dropping seed).
The point being that once the issue of “GM” reached public awareness levels an “endemic” status would be argued, You or I can merely call it it intentional contamination with illegal intent.
Moving on, having worked on and am currently farming very close to commercial scale “organic” agriculture (uk) the issue is this:
In order to compete (commercially) the “organic” farmer needs by dint of profit to use for example
a) Holstein for milking
b) Cobb or Ross chicken for meat
c) Texel sheep
And so on, all of which have been bred within existing systems of antibiotics/growth promoters, using “modern” high energy/lower nutrition diets, think energy shakes/animal farm.
If you try to play a CD on a record player the result is less than ideal?
Todays “organic” farmer is faced with either unprofitability or…. cheating as and when the need calls.
The 90 s onward saw a swaythe of know it all new entrants into “organic” farming, glowing with self found conviction that they could do it better than the old boys, coupled with expensive “lifestyle” requirements the scene was set for a slide into obscurity and fraud..
And i do mean fearnly fkn whithout a clue, jimmys fuck up, sorry i mean farm etc
If, IF you want “organic”, sell everything you have, go buy what land you can afford, spend the next 4 years pulling more weed than crop and maybe just maybe you might acheive what you seek.
With realism and with minimal rose tints, the farming systems (uk) of the 60 s and 70 s in the more geographically challenging areas (mixed systems) were about where it was “at”.
Whilst far from “perfection” the 30 head, 50 acres to grass, 50 to home grown cereal, 50 to cash crops were on the whole clean and relatively low on input, inputs you see cost money. Generational knowledge of the land was superb, instincts well honed.
The cell count regulation in Milk, salmonela in Eggs, disease suceptability in now farm saved seed ALL ushered in the demise of something better than we have now..
And YOU bought it, white sliced, homogenised, pastuerised, packaged, gas flushed, wet plucked, shyte.. YOU all made this happen.
It is a mess and no mistake, but a mess WE made.
The current inversion re food is nothing new, what IS new is your awareness of it.
You can buy pitchforks at my website here:
Great article Kit, keep em coming
Monsatan sued some small US farmers for what it claimed was unautnorised planting of its GM crops. I wonder why it stopped doing that.
There is nothing “traditional” or “clean” about your “old boys” and the rape of the land they commited.. The UK used to be at least 70% woodland.
…and cow dairy products are unhealthy, shit food.
Anglo-saxon style cow farming is a blight.
you need to leave off the red and white mushrooms when you go a forragin m8
can I buy 100 pitchforks please!
you are entirely correct, convenience over dirty fingernails, ease over effort, vulgar snobbery toward soil and its tenders, consumer moronicity over knowledge (and soul), and all the “lifestylers”.
Given that there is plenty of food on the planet to feed everybody, you have to wonder whether these maniacs can be stopped.
You may think that the sheep watching TV, wearing masks and taking loads of vaccinations are a sorry lot, but the people pushing technologies such as Covid vaccinations, Ukraine weapons, GMO, “gene editted” varieties etc are just as bad, they are also a bunch of sheep but they have a different farmer and the farmer is a corporate greedy for more money and more power.
The world has been taken over by fascism: corporates allied with government. Greed for money and power is now overtly manic and trumps every other consideration. The fascist corporates are on a rampage and will destroy everything, absolutely everything in order to grab more power and control. They obviously are letting the gene editors loose on our food and it will be one huge theft operation, like the Covid vaccines scam was a huge theft operation, like the Ukraine weapons companies are a huge theft operation.
Governments were supposed to stop this sort of behaviour, the risking of citizens’ lives for profit. Now the governments are part of the scam, the individuals in the government are another bunch of sheep who follow the others, not able to control their thirst for more money, more power, less accountability. They see their peers stealing and lying so they follow along and do the same, weak individuals with no control over themselves, manically working for more, more regardless of what damage they are inflicting on others.
But this is not the end of it: The governments will soon release diseases that attack strains of crops made by their competitors – competitors to their rich owners – using the military budgets to destroy huge quantities of food. I assume that the reason Russia and China are getting involved is that they know that they are vulnerable to being attacked: starved off their land by diseases created by the western governments, ordered by the corrupt politicians, waging war for their corporate bosses.
Soon we will have an arms race with the fascist west trying to starve out the east. This cannot end well. They will destroy everything we have built over centuries until the world is not habitable.
I agree on everything except the definition of fascism, which historically was rather the opposite of private control of government. Regardless of labels, we oppose the same people.
That wasn’t the definition implied. Fascism is/was the alliance of corporations and state.
I think today it’s commonly called “Private Public Partnership”, only that the “public” part includes governments, NGOs, think tanks, and international organizations that in themselves are financed and controlled by the the very same “private” partners. (the public have nothing to do with it)
In short we have a global technocratic kleptocracy, mostly run by oligarchs and sociopaths, which make any historic view of fascism look like a kindergarten being compared to Frankenstein bio-lab.
And when you no longer have states? When you have a single global entity, which is the goal of these psychopaths?
Fascism is traditionally a nationalist movement; what happens when you no longer have nations in any meaningful sense?
What you have is something that promises to be a lot worse than Fascism.
Everyone here pretty much is right.
It should be remembered that there’s very little public support for GMO. It’s why they backed off it last time and why they’re trying to smuggle it in in this “lesser” version this time.
The “gene editors” (gene drive) has already been set loose on people. That is infection from people who were covid-jabbed is all about.
First communists, then terrorists, then humanitarian wars, then more terrorists, then even more terrorists, then Putin, then covid, then Ukraine and now this, at a time that climate change is going to kill is anyway, unless…
‘ The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.’
And at the heart of “this” is the MSM, peddling their stories of Armageddon. How many of these events were manufactured?
The World Economic Forum’s next plan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GwSCFwCScs&t=32s
Thank You Nigel, It was good to hear from a Northern Lad. I’am guessing he’s about 30yrs younger than me. If I could just mention many people starved in the British Isles during that famine., at the same time throughout having to continue production of essentials to maintain living.
Been a long time since I read about it at a local library, this that whatever eventually leading to what we’d call the Allotments. Plus he didmt mention our very important Co-ops, probably because of the political digital technology format he’s using., you-tube.
Brings up an important Point, quite often it’s what a Person doesn’t SAY that can be The Point, ie: “Domestic Food Production”. From Farming right the way down to a back garden every little helps.
Don’t a lot of fertilisers come from China?, together with antibiotics…so yea, guess we are in it.
The saying, “life goes on your a long time dead, now think on me lad” is apt for an app.
Look, the biggest problem is that the media can print absolute lies about absolutely anything favourable to corporate interests and they are never taken down for it. There should be 25 years in prison for any journalist who prints that GM crops have been proven to increase production yields. They don’t. Despite 30 years of the industry trying to fiddle the data.
There should be 25 years in prison for politicians who claim that GM crops is not about one thing and one thing alone: creating intellectual property monopolies for unaccountable foreign corporations and damn the human health off their citizens. Anyone with any capabilities whatsoever knows that and everyone with a pea for a brain knows that there is zero crop capable of growing in all geographies with optimal yields. The way to solve food crises is genetic diversity, not genetic uniformity. But the eugenicists WANT to create starvation, that’s their top aim, so they promote GM to ensure that sooner or later, with no genetic diversity in crops, that bad environmental conditions causes global starvation. They will of course have their own food supplies not using that technology at all.
Very important that Bill Gates et al are FORCED to eat NOTHING but GM food every day until they day. They force this on everyone else, they die if they try and evade it. No ifs, no buts, the time for negotiation is long gone.
Every single ‘new innovation’ is tested on the children and grandchildren of the billionaires. Every vaccine, every G< crop, every new mobile phone mast, every single bit of 5G technology: test it on Bill Gates’ children.
End of discussion.
You want the govt to have the power to lock up journalists for publishing “fake news”? 🤦♀️
But it already has that power, look at what happened to Assange, Snowden, Irving, or even an obscure blogger who dared criticise Sadik Khan and had police sent from London to the Midlands to arrest him. The problem is not the power to arrest, it is who holds that power. At present it is a bunch of corrupt malevolent shills for big business, but imagine how things changed if the government was benevolent. And if you think this sounds utopian, then any hope for improvement is.
“The problem is not the power to arrest, it is who holds that power.”
It is naive that if the power to fuck something up, to act malevolently, to do something bad exists, it won’t be sooner or later exploited by wrongdoers. Even if shit like that is put in place with good intentions, which is rarely the case, some asshole will sooner or later be in a position to abuse it.
Let everybody say whatever they want. People will sort it out. Once you start intervening, there is no way back and things will get progressively more and more fucked up.
Does the danger exist that somebody will believe a lie uttered by somebody else? Fuck, yes. The world is a bad, bad place. Is it the liar’s fault or the fault of the gullible idiot who acts on whatever he’s naively swallowed?
Ultimately our enemy is technology. It is technology that has enabled such a tiny number of oligarchs to control and threaten billions of people. Modern technology is simply killing us while we keep worshipping it.
No, that’s the wrong conclusion – that’s throwing out the baby with the bathwater.
While it’s true that technologies have been abused, overused, employed unnecessarily, and so on, technological progress has greatly benefited humankind and led to greater and greater liberalization. Technologies have the potential to make resources more readily available, including information, to rid the human race of some of the inherent problems that have plagued us throughout history.
Our enemy is greed, which stems from the (perceived) scarceness of resources, and the other various ways in which people are fucked up in the head, which forces them to concoct ways to subjugate their fellow humans instead of enjoying a peaceful life filled with something pleasurable, like wine, women, and song … 😉 …
What we’re witnessing at the moment is in fact a massive luddistic effort on the part of the aforementioned fucked up people to thwart technological progress that has provided humankind with means of communication and dissemination of information and is threatening the privileged status of the fucked up elites to control the spread of information, to brainwash people, to keep them in the dark. With the Internet and the gadgets connected to it, they no longer have the very tight control they had with newspapers, radio, TV, as anybody can report and broadcast what they witness in any part of the world and pass it on to everybody else. Ditto the political system – why have a fucking parliamentary democracy with dozens of fucking assholes jerking off in the backbenches if people can vote on issues through their phones in real time?
It might appear that technological progress is the culprit in what we’re witnessing, and to some extent or from a certain angle it is, but it’s much more accurate to say that attempts to stop or pervert technological advancement are the problem. In other words, it’s not technologies, it’s the sick minds of the motherfuckers that abuse them.
If we had stayed hunter gatherers our descendants would be around for 50,000 to 100,000 years or more. As things stand we would be lucky if mankind survives another 50 years. Mobile phones are the worst possible example of the alleged benefits of technology. They have lead to a huge biosphere endangering increase in dangerous radiation. They are being used to track and trace us. They lead to increased brainwashing. They are by no means cheap.
I don’t know, mahn.
You could say something negative about any technological invention. Before mobile phones, there was TV, before that radio, before that telegraph, before that the fucking homing pigeons were shitting all over the place, and who the fuck knows what was happening before that.
It’s not the technologies that wreak havoc, it’s the pricks who abuse them.
Moreover, the reality is that humankind has embarked on the path of technological development and even if that entails a bunch of negative phenomena, so would having remained hunters/gatherers.
Incidentally, you don’t have to use a mobile phone, in which way you can easily avoid being tracked and traced.
Anyways, I do enjoy quite a few of the allegedly alleged benefits of technology, such as having my pellet furnace come on automatically early in the morning so that I wake up to a nicely warmed up house and don’t have to freeze my ass off until I make fire in my wood burner. And plenty of others.
Frankly, being self-employed freelance professional, I find the mobile phone a mightily useful implement. I remember the days of pagers, answering machines, piss and scum-filled phone booths that would eat your last fucking quarter, and so on. With the mobile phone, I’m free as a bird. Does it bother me that the pieces of shit track and trace me? It does. But frankly it mainly bothers me out of principle. Actually, I’m quite enraged about it. Personally, however, I couldn’t give two shits. Now, if you find that somewhat schizophrenic, then know that I’m a Gemini and as such I’m perfectly entitled to have as many contradictory opinions as my many selves happen to harbor.
You omit the thing about mobile phones which make them so deadly (besides the emf radiation, that is): their ability to brainwash the user.
Empirically, it is impossible to deny that these devices are addictive – literally addictive. I know of no one who uses their cell phone constantly whose mind is not closed to ideas contrary to official narratives.
(Footnote: Anyone who has no contradictory opinions has a mind closed to reality. Reality itself is filled with contradictions. For example, I’m an anarchist who hates the police state; yet, my neighborhood and some of its occupants makes me question the wisdom of anarchism. Or the idea put forth above by Placental_Mammal: I believe as that commenter does – yet in such a society it’s doubtful I would even be alive today.)
It’s not the phone that brainwashes the user, even though I acknowledge that the makers of these gadgets go to great lengths to make some of their features addictive. It’s the user’s already fucked up head that allows the phone to be used against them for brainwashing purposes.
Before mobile phones, people were brainwashed by TV, radio, newspapers, you name it.
Is the phone more efficient in exacerbating how people are fucked up? Potentially yes.
On the other hand, it’s a great tool. I resisted getting a smart phone (I hate the use of smart in this context) for a long time, but I now have one. It’s very useful. Mind you, I have data turned off and only switch it on when I need it, which is very rarely.
Anyway, I do agree that humans should pay closer attention to interacting with the world, including themselves, using their own devices, as opposed to technologies, but I won’t join any crusade against technology per se. That’s just as lunatic as relying on technologies excessively.
You are regurgitating technocratic propaganda. What is the “human race” ? A race to the bottom?
The “inherent” problems are not inherent, they are created by the parasites that want to sell solutions that create more problems.
OK then. Go back to the fucking forest and become a hunter/gatherer.
In fact, beats me why you’re not there already.
When the baby has already drowned in the bathwater, it does no good to dump the bathwater and leave the corpse in the tub.
Technology has become so debased that it no longer exists as something with the potential to help humanity. The elements comprising technology (i.e., the principles powering it) have been hollowed out and re-engineered to produce only that which is economically feasible – with the result that technology has become merely the handmaiden of economics.
The surest way to destroy something is to put a price tag on it.
I both agree and disagree with you.
The thing is that life is an endless search for a balance. There is no final solution, an ultimate state of affairs where everything falls in place, and Nirvana ensues. Maybe man is suffering from excessive technological hubris right now, probably. So, we have to push the other way a bit. But it doesn’t mean embracing the other extreme.
“I’m not anti-technology – I’m anti-TECHNOCRACY.” ~ Some smart guy
Exactly what Ted Kaczynski, the unabomber, was saying in his manifesto.
He has repeatedly been proven correct. Unfortunately big business pays for new technology in order to make money, not to help people. Slavery is the dream of many a powerful person, so it is no wonder that the powerful are paying for the development of technology that will enslave the people. Technology will destroy us because it is incompatible with the aims of a successful society.
“Technology will destroy us because it is incompatible with the aims of a successful society.”
Stop this Luddite shit already.
Would man greatly benefit from placing less emphasis on external means of dealing with shit (technologies), as opposed to endeavoring to be self-reliant, in harmony with oneself and his natural habitat? Fuck, yes. Does it mean that man should completely forgo technologies and go back to caves and treetops? Fuck, no.
Don’t be an lunatic extremist. It’s a question of balance.
The original idea probably came from Eugene Debs in 1894: pretending to concede or compromise, and biding the opportunity to renege. IMO, his focus was capitalism, not technology.
Ultimately our enemy is capitalist corporatism.
The “media” are like a hammer. They’re both tools, and require someone to manipulate them. The media (in the mainstream, corporate sense), like a hammer, doesn’t operate independently.
A “secretly dead” queen is a distinct possibility, me thinks, but in this regard, me wonders about something else. As bad as it is to live under the hereditary rule of a bunch of inbred degenerates pompously masquerading themselves in ridiculous costumes, it’s what it is and changing the status quo would require a sizeable effort. Fine. But why do people – who DO have a choice – voluntarily elect shitheads like Juste Un Trou d’Eau. Or that idiot Dubya Bush (who actually appears pretty smart over the backdrop of the incumbent duo of cretins). Since when is premier or president a hereditary position? Are people fucking stupid or what? The only qualification of Fidel Jr. is that he bears Daddy Trudeau’s name. Otherwise, he’s a complete asshole, an empty vessel, Schwab’s puppet. Ditto Dubya. Boggles the mind.
As to genetic engineering, people will continue tinker with the natural world until they fuck up beyond repair the flora and fauna that provide humans with their natural habitat. A case in point is the insane genetic modification of seeds to make them only sprout once. What happens if the factory where they make these seeds burns down? No more food. Now, Nature will sort it out, and new species will appear and flourish. Not necessarily people. Man is a fragile creature that has managed to fuck himself up even more over the years. Extinct he’ll go pronto. Yesterday, I translated an article about some conference on sustainable goals and extinction. You know what these motherfuckers are concerned with? Coffee cups made from recycled dregs and getting to the venue on a shared scooter.
“Waiter , I dont have a fly in my soup ! “
So, what you’re saying is that unless we overthrow these bastards or grow and manufacture our own food either individually or collectively with likeminded individuals, we’re totally screwed. Ok, good to know. I vote for the first one.
All of that would not be among other factors possible is free speech was not a initiated by global fascist regime. And as in old Third Reich time MSM Journalists turned into worse scam twisting meaning of free speech in Orwellian ways.
If one thinks, like Nuovo Journalists think that there is any legitimate reason why some people’s speech should to be curtailed via censorship of content or limiting access and distribution of speech one exhibits elements of fundamentally fascist consciousness.
Ancient Roman symbol of “Fasci” (fascism) meant strength in unity, strength in uniform thought and consciousness among fascists as symbolized by a bundle of identical twigs cut to one single size.
Such cut and sized uniform consciousness of fascists shows itself by shared among all fascist ideologues evidence free, empirically unproven believe that speech itself can be more harmful to society then silencing that very speech.
In reality the only remedy for harmful speech is more of diverse speech to counter it in condition of equitable access to audiences and apriori rejection of any formal or informal institutional authority, whatever it can be, usurping right to legitimate value and validity of any speech content or form that must be judged by listeners alone.
There can be no limits on free speech content or there can be no open democratic society. As far as form of free speech is concerned it must not however interfere or limit anyone else exercising one’s own free speech rights in equitable way.
The today virtually destroyed by Social media US constitutional freedom of press as well as now defunct rules of Fairness in Reporting in media were meek and faulty shadows of true free speech principles. All replaced by state or Supra state ministry of Truth and private medial tyrannies.
The fused state and corporate mass propaganda unfettered by alternative interpretations, views, assessments or ideas amount to mass psychological warfare which is a part of class warfare waged by oligarchic class against people who work for living and their life sustaining communities and economies.
The unprecedented mass censorship today is a tool of depoliticizing politics as Hardt and Negri wrote (both lapsed radical Marxists. First fought in guerrilla war in Central America second was in prison for collaboration with radical leftist Brigade Rossi militant group in Italy ) in their book “Empire” already in 1999. The book wittingly or not turned out to became a blueprint for following 20 years in western politics and statecraft.
Today opposing any government or corporate policies domestic or foreign does not make us political opponents wanting policy changes as bourgeois liberal democratic political framework used to allow.
Today It makes us dangerous pariahs, immoral terrorists who want to disturb harmony or do harm to united nation and its people and hence we are being canceled, erased from public space and public discourse and ultimately from jobs and economy into condemned margin of “decent moral” fascist society of identical twigs. The supposed moral authority of self righteous fascist mob in media and in the streets is rendered by ruling elites as beyond any reproach.
Fascism and its empty “feel good” slogans of national inclusiveness or solidarity (team playing) requiring no thought but pure emotion of joy, happiness, false hope, self righteousness and fake sense of unity and justice was quite popular in Italy in 1920s and in Germany during Great Depression across entire social spectrum from aristocracy to industrialists to petty bourgeois to peasants while industrial working class was mostly untrusting and required strong persuasion and brainwashing to jump on fascist bandwagon by means of bribery, intimidation, desperation or brutal violence.
All that required elimination, canceling of those who rained on fascist parade of self love via means of depoliticizing of any opposition and instead criminalizing it as enemies of nation. Voting for fascism was not political but moral choice so is voting for GMOs, or Covid apartheid or Green capitalism. It is framed as a matter of individual morality.
As under Fascist regimes in Spain, Germany or Italy etc., editors of newspapers did not have to censor their journalists because of censorship laws. They fired (cancelled) them. The same thing was long happening in nominally democratic west and accelerated in at least two decades and ultimately produced a monolithic corporate state controlled MSM while journalistic refugees were relegated to social media wasteland of concentration camps.
Today young western journalists know that road to career is paved with grants, endorsements sponsorships and mentoring by CIA and their fronts as they learn essential journalistic skill of cutting and pasting from CIA briefs or corporate PR announcements.
Like in fascist states they all deeply believe that they are free and can say whatever their masters brainwashed them with without any need for censorship.
To shame of journalistic profession it was willfully ignorant journalistic mob that attacked few veteran journalists who called for sanity and were foaming with hatred against independent media daring to closely examine official narratives. There is no peoples justice in the west anymore but only street, government and corporate board fascist mob and electoral zombies to rubber stamp their totalitarian rule.
For Orwellian news look at all the modern world, Soviet Union, US and UK in primis. Orwell was describing first and foremost the British system, then become ubiquitous.
Why do they keep perpetuating the lie that “modern” agriculture yields better results.
They should do their “the science” right.
Calculate in the production costs and resources for high-tech tools, petrol and energy required and the damage done by ruining soil for generations to come with non-organic fertilizers and so-called “modern” agriculture is an economical and ecological disaster.
Not only can organic farming easily produce as much if not more than “modern” farming – if it is done right – the nutritional quality of the crops is also better, and all it requires is clever planning, people to plant the seeds, harvest the crops and a bit of waiting in between.
The only real advantage that crops grown in industrial style have is they look nicer. After all, that is all that seems to count in today’s world. 🙄
Also: Ploughing a field produces too much carbon dioxide! SERIOUSLY! Can they get even more ridiculous. They do know there are methods of organic farming that don’t even use ploughing?
I did see something which suggested that whilst it was possible to farm organically once you started on industrial farming it was a slippery slope.
I can well believe that ploughing releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere but does it release more than Bill Gates’ private jet on its way to a climate change conference?
Spot on, but of course why would we expect any shred of truth to come out of mainstream media? Needless to say, the academic apparatus is sold out too.
“Not only can organic farming easily produce as much if not more than “modern” farming – if it is done right”.
What happened in Sri Lanka seems almost a set-up on how to do organic farming wrongly….
The Green Revolution was one great technological scourge, perhaps matched by medical technology and neo-liberal “development”.
The only real advantage that crops grown in industrial style have is they look nicer. After all, that is all that seems to count in today’s world. 🙄 And who produced this …YOU AND ME.
We are many and they are few, and yet these people can still whatever the hell they please. Why is it so, are we so fractured and/or polarized that we lack even the basic common-sense to unite for our own good?
Kit and all the writers and co-ordinators at OffG … you are like breathes of fresh-air in a putrifying sewer. I can’t say enough about your work. You are the light upon the hill which should never be extinguished.
Please take a bo-peep at the disgusting editorial of The Sydney Morning Herald, Wed 11 05 2022 to comprehend the depths of mind-numbing phuckery the MSM have sunk.
Acouple of things –
If you want a simple method to glean some truth out of the mainstream media: if it says “conspiracy theory” It’s true. If it says it’s “The Science” It’s false. Just a wee substitution of terms to keep pace with modern times…
With the “Great Reset” and the “New Normal” it’s now OK for governments to attack their own citizens and doctors to attack their own patients…
The only remedy the clever and cunning morons who want to rule us all can come up with when things are going badly, is to make them worse…
My heart goes out to all creatures now living on this Planet of the Endangered Apes…
It is sad to say, however little action is possible when 90% of the population has cognitive impairment and the thinking 10% have no means and are actively castigated by the governments. Of my course my figures may be optimistic.
