“We may find in the long run that tinned (canned) food is a deadlier weapon than the machine-gun.” –George Orwell
“If starvation is cheap and requires low levels of technology, why not always use it?” –Michelle Jurkovich (George Washington University)
Food and its production has been a principle concern since the beginning of time. Governments monitor the food supply very carefully for the sake of national security. The fluctuation in the price of core goods can make life very hard for everyone. The poorest people in Haiti resorted to eating mud cookies and in Ireland the government is handing out free cheese as their economy crumbles under the burden of debt. Give us our daily bread because a hungry citizenry can bring a nation to ruin.
“The aim of Operation Vegetarian was to wipe out the German beef and dairy herds and then see the bacterium spread to the human population. With people then having no access to antibiotics, this would have caused many thousands — perhaps even millions — of German men, women and children to suffer awful deaths.” —The Herald
“The anthrax cakes were tested on Gruinard Island, off Wester Ross, which was finally cleared of contamination in 1990. Operation VEGETARIAN was planned for the summer of 1944 but, in the event, it was abandoned as the Allies’ Normandy invasion progressed successfully.” —The Herald
It is not a secret that many nations and paramilitary groups have used food as a weapon. What could be more formidable? Hitler, Stalin, Herbert Hoover and many others have used this tactic. Researchers and university professors have written on the subject incessantly. They prattle on about the best ways to wipe out populations and the most cost-efficient way. Why waste bullets when you can bring a nation to its knees by starvation and disease?
“A basic weapon of the capitalists in their struggle for life as a social class will be the control of food. American – and to a degree British – capitalists will brandish this weapon over Europe, Asia and Africa. The famished and starved revolutionary masses, the capitalists hope, are to be brought to their knees by the weapon of food.” –The Imperial Strategy of Food
“They will also attempt to use food to secure from the governing regime of the USSR ever greater economic and political concessions aiming at the eventual restoration of capitalism in the Soviet Union. The USSR is considered by the imperialists to be in the category of “unfinished business.” –The Imperial Strategy of Food
“At Home & Abroad. Both Stalin and Hitler use food to destroy internal opposition, reward accomplishment, punish failure, establish the class distinctions of their “new orders.” In Germany the “warrior caste” of the armed forces gets the fattest ration cards, skilled and essential workmen the next. Down at the bottom come prisoners, the insane, the Jews. Ration cards giving the owner right to more food are used to give workmen incentives to seek promotion, to increase their output. Supplies are suddenly cut down (regardless of the amount stored) to scare the population into believing the situation serious, or extra rations are suddenly granted to boost morale in a bad time. Food statistics are guarded like bomber planes. To the Nazis, food is “a beautiful instrument . . . for maneuvering and disciplining the masses.” —Food: A Weapon
Most people don’t even know who is responsible for their food supply. They don’t know the names of the companies who put food on their table. The steak was bought at Walmart and that is all that is needed to know. The supply chains and the global cartels who run them are never mentioned. Companies like Cargill, ConAgra, Tyson, Kraft, DuPont and Monsanto want to rob you of the ability to grow and/or sell you’re own food. Legislation like S.510 , the ‘food safety’ bill have been crafted by former Monsanto employees and lobbyists to ensure that you get your food from their sources and not from any local small farmers, friends and neighbors who may offer cheaper and better products. Resource monopolization is taking place at this very moment in time!
