“If the collective governments of the Western world were trying to impoverish and starve their own citizens, what exactly would they be doing differently?”


That’s the question asked by Kit Knightly at Off-Guardian.  Writing about the farmers’ protests in the Netherlands, he points out:

While the scheme is allegedly about limiting nitrogen and ammonia emissions from urine and manure it’s hard not to see this in the broader context of the ongoing created food crisis.

The Netherlands produces a massive food surplus and is one of the largest exporters of meat in the world and THE largest in Europe. Reducing its output by a third could have huge implications for the global food supply, especially in Western Europe.

Perhaps more troubling is how this could act as a precedent.

This isn’t the first “pay farmers not to farm” scheme launched in the last year – both the UK and US have put such schemes in place – but a government paying to reduce it’s own meat production? That is a first.

That it is (allegedly) being done to “protect the environment” makes it a big warning sign for the future. Denmark, Belgium and Germany are already considering similar policies.

The Western world seems to be enthusiastically embracing quasi-suicidal policies.

I mean, paying farmers to reduce the amount of food they produce…while (notionally) threatened with war…in the midst of a recession…facing record inflation as the cost of living spirals.

Does that really make any sense?

That’s almost as crazy as refusing new oil and gas leases while the cost of petrol is going up.

Indeed, in a world beset by a shortage of fertiliser due to sanctions against Russia and Belarus, it would seem almost mad to complain about a manure surplus, let alone try to reduce it.

We’re well past the point where any of this could be considered accidental, aren’t we?

Put it this way – if the collective governments of the Western world were trying to impoverish and starve their own citizens, what exactly would they be doing differently?

There’s more at the link.

To that I’d add:  consider the anti-farm-animal and anti-meat propaganda being spouted by Bill Gates and his cronies . . . at a time when Mr. Gates is investing heavily in the production of artificial meat, made from plants, and has become the largest individual owner of farmland in the USA.  Interesting coincidence, isn’t it?  Western Journal quotes him as saying:  ““I do think all rich countries should move to 100 percent synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time … Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior of] people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.”  Aren’t the regulations we’re seeing European governments trying to impose on their farmers likely to achieve precisely that?  And isn’t Bill Gates one of the biggest supporters of the so-called “Great Reset” and environmental causes?

Reading between these lines, it’s plausible that what we face isn’t moving away from the horrors of factory farming toward either lab-meat or regenerative agriculture. Rather, what we’ll see (like the restriction of aviation to the ultra-rich) is both, depending on social status. Vat-meat for the masses; and ethically raised, environmentally sustainable steak from the Bill Gates eco-pasturelands for those that can afford it.

One suspects the protesting farmers in Europe – the Netherlands protests have spread to Germany and Italy already, and will probably spread further – are all too well aware of that . . . as they should be.  It’s only their livelihood, and the food needed by their fellow citizens, that’s at stake, after all.



  1. Meat, or high protein food, is what has most greatly influenced the growth or Homo sapiens big brain. In places where protein is restricted, the people generally are smaller in all dimensions. As far as using regulations to ensure people changing their behavior, this only works as long as people cooperate with the regulation. Consider that these restrictions may coordinate with other plans to reduce the population of the planet.

  2. but a government paying to reduce it’s own meat production?

    Well, Bill Gates is working on a fake meat. How conveeenient that the world could be seeing a depopulation level shortage. Ohh,the farmland that POS has bought up. Ohh,did I mention he's also developing a fake milk for babies? And wouldn't ya just know America has a very conveeenient shortage of baby formula.
    The late Georgia Guidestones, after about fifty years of standing there, announcing the goals of the globalists, was attacked. But rather than bolstering the remaining parts, they knocked them down. Maybe they are simply no longer necessary. The People have been warned about what the GlowBull elite intend to do to us. If we don't stop them, we deserve what they mean to do.That is their ethics. Or, so a very smart doctor who saved my life told me. The population needs to be around 500,000,000,and what do we see happening? A MANufactered disease, A war that could go nuclear. A MANufactured food shortage. A warning from Fauci that another disease is coming. People need to Read Agenda 21,and read between the lines,paying particular attention to the Rewilding of North America. Reading Executive Orders is informative. Paying particular attention to the Unconstitutional parts. Spend time on what Clowerd and Piven have to say about How to bring a First World nation to its knees, without singing the National Anthem. Overwhelm the Social Safety Nets.Epstein didn't kill himself and Trump won.

  3. It isn't suicide, it's homicide. Our so-called leaders believe they will survive and prosper on the assets of the kulaks that they murder or enslave.

    And they have no problem killing off our form of government (despite having largely co-opted it) because the principles that it theoretically represents embarrass and anger them. They don't believe all men are created equal; they feel they are superior and we dumb kulaks just don't show them the proper amount of respect and deference.

    So I have no mental speed-bumps in believing that they fully intend to depopulate the world, either through bad vaccines, starvation, or war.

  4. It's a One Third World Government.
    It's The New Third World Order.

    It'll make the shitholes of the present Third World seem like paradise.

  5. Shortening the Day of Reckoning they are… it will come sooner then they think, but will not come about as they plan and wish, we get a substantial vote in this… and it will not be ballets.

  6. The Gates thing has strong parallels to the banning of hemp in the ?1940s. Allegedly duPont funded the anti-hemp process to leave the way clear for nylon and other synthetic fibres to take over the rope and fabric markets.

    Otherwise, for 50+ years that I recall, academia & self-appointed green warriors have been crying out "too many humans". Even if not a conspiracy – rather just a collective drift towards decisions based on that mantra – you wouldn't do anything different. Since being PC prohibits killing off people who look different, you'd naturally start by killing off your own… Gotta keep up appearances.

  7. I used to know Ernest Callenbach, who became a public figure for a while when he wrote Ecotopia, a utopian novel from 1974 or so which was popular for a while. He was a very nice man who edited natural history handbooks for the University of California Press.

    He also wrote Bring Back the Buffalo!: A Sustainable Future For America's Great Plains

    Amazon's blurb:

    "In Bring Back the Buffalo!, Ernest Callenbach argues that the return of the bison is the key to a sustainable future for the Great Plains. Vast stretches of the region have seen a steady decline in population and are ill-suited for traditional agriculture or cattle ranching. Yet those same areas provide ideal habitat for bison.

    "Callenbach explores the past history, present situation, and future potential of bison in North America as he examines what can and should be done to re-establish bison as a significant presence in the American landscape. He looks forward with high hopes to a time when vast herds of buffalo provide permanent sustenance to the rural inhabitants of the Great Plains and again play a central role in the balance of nature."

    I'd sure rather eat bison burgers than Gatesburgers.

  8. Well, Peter,you have pointed out a choice, an easy and obvious choice. So far, it's looking like every decision that some politician or unelected bureaucrat/Expert makes For us, they not only get it wrong, but they are able to Every single time, get it the most painfully wrong as is possible.
    If the people running this circus were just well intentioned idiots pulling the levers, once in a while they would have to make a move that Didn't screw us. I'm not seeing evidence of that.

  9. "That’s almost as crazy as refusing new oil and gas leases while the cost of petrol is going up."

    Or selling our Strategic Petroleum Reserve to China, but who would do that.
