Entry-level jobs at grocery stores have been career-starters for millions of teenagers over the decades. The Technocrat solution is to wipe those jobs out with efficiency.
Farming is traditionally a very labor-intensive industry, but now robots are set to take over the bulk of those jobs and drive more family farms into the hands of corporate giants. Fully automated tractors, planters, weeders and pickers/harvesters can do virtually 100% of any crop.
And away we go… Moths with a genetically modified kill switch to be released into the wild. The words ‘likely’ and ‘unlikely’ are used repeatedly to justify the release: ‘unlikely to impact the environment or humans’ and ‘likely killed off my pesticides’. The USDA has again fallen under the spell of Technocrats who elevate science to a state of godhood and themselves as the high priests.
In another attempt to outwit and out-perform nature, artificial lab-grown meat is deemed the next big food technology. It is unclear if there will be any market acceptance of this product. For those consumers who already reject GMO foods, artificial meat should prove repulsive.
Technocrats working robotics are pushing hard for a Universal Basic Income throughout society because they understand the vast damage they will cause to the labor force. The ethical issue does not concern them, as they ‘invent’ simply because they can.
Monsanto and its very small handful of competitors are enforcing ‘intellectual property rights’ by criminalizing unauthorized distribution of their seeds. Farmers around the world are at the mercy of these giants to use their seeds only, and there is no escape for most. This is Technocracy at its worst, and near-total control over all food supply is demonic at the least.
Technocrats invent because they can, not because there is any moral target in view. Ingesting any tampered or man-made food or drug should be thoroughly tested in a controlled population before releasing to the public. The medical industry has the worst track record of suppressing testing data and skipping testing altogether if it can get away with it. This company’s founder and CEO is a medical doctor.
The combined weight of sales from just ten companies is $358 billion per year in revenue, and the pressure to consolidate further continues. To say this is unhealthy for the world is an understatement.
A global monopoly on food cannot end well for the eaters of the world. However, Bayer Science is intent on forming such a monopoly and is well on its way.
Global agricultural giant John Deere has played foul with its customers for over 40 years. In the early days of the Trilateral Commission (founded 1973), Deere Chairman and CEO William Hewitt was a member and key player in monopolizing the agricultural equipment industry. Things have not changed. Today’s tractors are locked in order to force Farmers to use their local dealer for all service and repair, which is costly and seldom convenient. Thus, creative farmers have turned to the black market to buy unlock kits, proprietary cables and software, in order to perform their own maintenance and repair. In sum, John Deere represents the epitome of Technocrat thinking.
