Sigh…

Here we go again with the WEF and this crap…

People take agriculture for granted because it is one of mankind’s oldest technologies. It remains perhaps one of the most complex. Hunter gatherers began investigating what could be eaten more than 100,000 years ago, an arduous process involving trial and error made more difficult by the fact some foods, like acorns and cassava, have to be soaked or otherwise processed to be edible. This vital knowledge was passed on to posterity in lore. Eventually the list of the more basic foodstuffs became common knowledge, though among the ancients, knowledge of pharmacological plants often stayed secret.

Eventually everyone knew what food was and that knowledge remained stable for centuries. Now the World Economic Forum has a plan to change that. It will revise the list of what humanity eats wholesale to defeat Climate Change. “Our global food system is in urgent need of transition. At present, one-third of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions come from food production.” The great work of agriculture will be revamped and the transition will involve all aspects of food production and consumption:

Do they not remember the European farmers protests? HERE is that link…

I know we joke about kids thinking all their food comes from the grocery store without any ‘production’ costs or anything else, but damn…

Farmers, ranchers, and grove owners work their asses off, spend a butt ton of $$$ to plant, harvest, and hopefully make enough profit to pay off this year’s debts before they buy what they need for next year, plus pay for maintenance on their equipment. And that assumes they have a successful harvest. What happens when they don’t? They go deeper in debt, praying next year will be better. If not… well, they’re done. They have to sell the land, hope to pay off their debts, and usually are living at a poverty level for the rest of their lives.

And where are these ‘companies’ that are going to revolutionize food production? How successful are their ‘test’ plans? Has anyone actually DONE large scale production?

We know how the ‘plant based’ meats are doing (e.g. not well)…

And how many current businesses, farms, ranches, etc. will be put out of business along with how many subsidiary jobs? How many towns will be decimated when those plants close? Where will those people find ‘new’ jobs?

Who is going to buy up all those farms, ranches, etc? Who will have the money to pay for them? Bueller, Bueller???

I am really getting tired of these ivory tower types who’ve never gotten their shoes, much less their pants dirty, or ever had blisters from actually doing WORK on a farm, ranch, or anywhere else, but ‘they’ know better than we do what is ‘best’ for us…

Well, I’ve got your ‘best’ right here… come and get it… I’ll be in the back yard doing a brisket for the weekend…

  1. Our “betters” seem determined to return the world, except for their enclaves of course, to the 1800s if not the Middle Ages. I think they should all be committed to insane asylums.

  2. Remember, they really do hate you. Eat ze bugs. Standby for rant, ready…rant!

    They hate animals and ignore the massive fossil fuel consumption used to raise plants, process them and transport them. First-world food is built on transportation. If you hate carbon, then you should hate raising corn for gasahol, a net energy negative. We could revamp our food system to produce foods closer to consumption too. Our system was built with cheap transportation and no care towards carbon emissions from fossil fuels.

    Study nutrition. The food pyramid from the govt is not just wrong, but disasterously wrong. Our large-to-small intestine ratio is that of a carnivore. Beef liver is the food from which we get the most nutrients. Carrots, you can maybe get 30% of the available vitamins. Beef, second best, we get 90%. Meat has proteins plants don’t that we need. Long-term vegans, in my experience, end up eating eggs, fish, or other sources of animal protein and are surprised by how much better they feel. My mother was eating mostly chicken and fish. She served me beef when I visited, and she was surprised at how much better she felt. Dementia is linked to low Omega 3 consumption – fish are important too.

    Seed oils drive inflammation. Food prices have not kept up with inflation because cheaper ingredients are being substituted. Cheaper means less healthy. Study the insulin cycle, we have too many carbs in our diet. The problem is they are addictive. Fasting is good for you too. Almost all of us have foods to which we react negatively and feel better if we avoid them. They are almost always plant-based. It takes time, but once you figure out those problems in your diet you feel so much better. You have to stop eating something you like for 2 weeks, then eat a bunch and pay attention to how you feel. Slow process but worth it in the long run.

    Food is medicine. Your health is in what you eat.

    • I’m right with you on the diet issue.

      I gave up grain-products 15 years ago, in my mid-forties. Just giving up grains, my knees stopped aching and my perennial muscle stiffness declined a great deal. At sixty, without working out , I am leaner and stronger than most of my contemporaries. The fewer plants I eat, the better I feel.

      As for food supply…. cities are inevitably dependent on transport. Food grows where the land best suits it. We cannot change that. We must deal with it.

  3. World Ego Forum? Simple solution, ignore them publicly and do the opposite of every single thing they propose.

  4. Maybe someone should tell them you got to farm “plant based meat”.
    They are not wild or free range vegetables.

    Duffi!

  5. “I am really getting tired of these ivory tower types who’ve never gotten their shoes…”

    I live in a “Right to Farm” county. Depending on the wind direction we are often reminded. I often hear complaints from people who bought new homes across the road from a dairy farm or college kids with their vocal “grievances”.

    As a country we’ve become both soft and selfish. Europe? Worse.

    Ranch raised, I laughed my way through Army Basic in 1963. Way easier than bucking bales at 8,000′ ASL.

  6. After fixing my 2 stroke mini tiller yesterday that was dormant in a shed since last summer , I went to task on the garden , it was like hanging on to a rabid badger with two handles but it did a helluva number on the surface weeds and got in between plants perfectly . It also did a helluva job on my back and both ankles . Needing medication, I had a Jim Beam or four , now this morning , after motrin and coffee , I feel a little foggy and have no quips but always enjoy your blog Old NFO . Best I have is , “the WEF can kiss my big white redneck ass” , same goes for the E.U.

  7. That millions of years rubbish sticks in my craw. If Genesis 1 is not believed then you do not get to claim Rev 22:21 either.

    Micah 4:1-7
    But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. [2] And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. [3] And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. [4] But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it. [5] For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever. [6] In that day, saith the Lord, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; [7] And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the Lord shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.

  8. And here’s my rant.

    No, the WEF doesn’t hate food. They don’t hate meat. They don’t hate grains, nor dairy, nor any other food.

    Remember, these are the asshats that love to dine on Wagu beef, caviar, exotic liquors and other alcoholic beverages, cheeses and other dairy products. And do so in harsh economic times, prancing around like a bunch of fat feudal lords.

    What they also love is doing everything that they say we normals, we serfs, peasants, debt slaves and actual chattel slaves (if they own your debt they own you) aren’t allowed or shouldn’t do. Because they are our superiors and lords and such.

    They don’t hate food. Not at all. When have you seen any of these excrementals go without during hunger times?

    They love food. All of it. The more expensive, harder to farm or raise, to process and cook, the better.

    They only hate… you. And me, and the rest of the gutter trash.

    They’ll never go without. Did Stalin and his minions starve during the Holomodor? Did Idi Amin and his minions starve? Did the ruling class of Zimbabwe starve? Or Nazi Germany? Cambodia under the Khymer Rouge? Or the leaders of the ChiComs? Leaders of Venezuela or Cuba? Ever see a skinny drug lord or cartel leader?

    Just like the same bunch of asshats saying we shouldn’t own anything while they’re buying their 15th multi-million dollar estate, or their next expensive car or plane or art piece or or or or.

    They don’t hate themselves. They’ve sold themselves to Satan or some other unholy force.

    They hate YOU. They work openly to seize assets from YOU. To deny YOU any rule of law. To deny YOU medicine that they use all the time (like the Covidiocracy, how many of them took hydrocloriquine or Ivermectin and said they took the covid shots but didn’t?)

    They want a lowered world population so they can control everyone easier. They want national borders destroyed because they’re only interested in their feudal borders. They want infrastructure in such a poor shape that the peons can’t move, because they have planes and helos and yachts and the ability to move.

    In short, they want to be our new feudal masters and we are the serfs, peasants and slaves tied to their lands and their businesses with no freedom to move or to wed or breed or grow our own foods or hunt or protect ourselves.

    They want… The Hunger Games. They want… The Handmaiden’s Tale. Think of any dystopian future world that their minions write about and it’s what they want. That stupid movie Elisium. They say it’s about evil conservatives and right wingers, but it’s actually about the world as they want it.

    They don’t really want us to eat bugs. They think of us as bugs. Substitute human flesh for bugs and that’s what they want. Remember all the rumors and wild stories about rich cannibals? The same types of rumors about sex trafficking using pizza codes or at Epstein’s island? That the medias and governments poo-pooed and told us normies that we were just conspiracy loving idiots?

    Yeah. They consider themselves the top of the food and economic pyramid. Much like any ‘nobility.’ And we are the dirt of the world, to be starved and sold and raped and killed without any ability to stop the starvation and stop the selling of and stop the raping of and stop the killing of.

    WE ARE THE BUGS.

  9. The “elites” want to “thin the herd”….by as much as 90%. The easiest and safest way to do that is to starve us. Thus the massive attack on agriculture and food production/distribution.

    It worked for Stalin and Mao so why not try it out on an even bigger scale.

  10. I expect the Watermelons to start actively demonizing Norman Borlaug any day now.

    We all thought the distopian fiction of our youth were warnings, they thought it was pron…

  11. The WEF are too obvious.

    If I were trying to bring in some “unpopular” (arrogant, despotic and downright stupid) measures in a country that I was supposed to be leading, something like the WEF is exactly what I’d support.

    Partly because they make a great scapegoat and stalking-horse. They can come out publicly with every crackpot idea and I get to watch what gets to peasants reaching for their torches and pitchforks . If you don’t react to any particular idea, I know that I can push that one further.
    But primarily because the WEF are out of your reach. I can get away with all sorts of evil if you are blaming some foreign group that you cannot sack and cannot punish at the next election.

    If there was no WEF, the Bidens, Trudeaus and Albaneses of this world would create one.

    Remember this, the WEF has almost zero power compared to the politicians. In the long, long conflict between those with money and those with swords…. the men with the swords tend to end up with the money. BECAUSE THEY CAN TAKE IT.

    Banks can be nationalised…. all it takes is legislation. The Russian Federation has given a master-class over the last 10-20 years on how politicians with the judiciary and security forces under their command, somehow end up owning most of the businesses.

    Hitler financed his war by simply ordering the Banks to “lend” him money equivalent to the value of all deposits held. They had no option but to comply.

    Every business that holds it hand out for government support – every business “too big to fail – is a business now under the control of politicians.

    Do not fall for the lie that some distant, untouchable business lobby-group is the source of our problems. The real tyrants are much closer to home…

  12. As for permitting ourselves to be dependent…
    What percentage of your tax revenue goes to supporting the health system?

    What percentage of people are chronically unhealthy because they put luxury-eating or recreational-eating before health and productive capacity? How many of us would rather put our hand out for government support and drugs, than be pro-active about our own health?

    I’m not going to tell you how to eat. Nor am I going to indulge in conspiracy-theories about how the elites want us all weak, sick, tired and “controllable”. The reality is that bugs are still less harmful than the high-sugar, high-starch, ultra-refined things that many of us call “food”. …… but I suggest that you should pay attention to the increasing number of people who are getting off that wagon, and finding themselves leaner, in less pain, healthier and more productive.

    If nothing else, TRY eating low-carb, whole-food for a month, and see how you feel. Don’t tell yourself that you can’t, until you’ve tried.

    That brisket Jim talks about is probably the healthiest thing that he’s eaten all week.

    Keep thinking about it. You don’t rid yourself of one form of slavery by embracing another. No-one is forcing you to eat industrial-manufactured products. You are choosing to do that yourself, and the greatest enemy to your health and independence may be looking back at you from the mirror.

    I think I’ll have another steak.

  13. The farmers have the best grasp of technology and economics of agriculture.

    Almost everyone else in the economy is much more distant.

    You might suppose that some engineers understand that technology, but their training has holes in economics. Economics studies economics in a way that does not first address the questions or uncertainties of engineers very well. An engineer with a really solid sense of economics has maybe had to rebuild economics theory from valid tests.

    In general, people who are not farmers can easily OD on insane academic theory, and be completely delusional. Lots of people are tricking themselves about whether they are being mass murderous idiots, and about whether their policies are effectively an attempt to restrict the food supply.

  14. Man, they REALLY want us DEAD, don’t they….

    I’ll surrender my charcoal broiled filet when you pry my cold, dead fingers from it!
