By LUIS R. MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | APRIL 26, 2012
If by now you are not familiar with the stated agenda from international government — working through national and local agencies — to effectively take humanity back to the stone age, I suggest you pinch yourself. The number of initiatives established to sequester our way of life and to reduce it to having to cook, shower and live as people used to do back in the Dark Ages continues to pile up. The proponents of these de-industrialization policies are no longer limited to crazy environmentalists who request that we all commit suicide in order to save the planet, but is it is preached on us by accomplice politicians and heads of NGOs who are worried about the consequences of development and a higher living standard for the third world.
The latest example of the lunacy with which politicians and bureaucrats want to impose their radical agenda on everyone else comes from an official at the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Al Armendariz, an EPA regional administrator was quoted by US Senator James Inhofe as saying how much he and his agency intended to “crucify” oil and gas companies. Don’t take me wrong, big oil and gas companies are undoubtedly some of the largest polluters on the planet joined by a selected group of corporations from the agroindustrial and medical-pharmaceutical establishments. In fact, governments around the world do very little to safeguard the public from production practices that endanger everyone’s lives.
Take for example the case of the genetically modified organisms that are put in almost everything we eat or use today. Governments refuse to properly label GMOs excusing themselves and the corporations that produce them by saying that there is not difference between naturally conceived products and those made in a lab. This couldn’t be further from the truth, of course. One would not have enough time to cite the number of studies that have unequivocally found a direct relationship between GMO consumption and sterility, cancer, and other diseases. Only studies conducted or sponsored by large industrial conglomerates continue to show that GMOs are safe.
Another case is the oil and gas industry which has played its game off the hook for decades. This resulted in the deliberate mass pollution of the environment around the globe without any kind of accountability. Big Business is the Biggest Polluter of the Environment, however, Big Government continues to blame small farmers and self-sufficient folks for the direst damages caused to mother nature. Sadly, the ‘greenies’ that want us all to live in caves are nowhere to be found when it comes to defending ourselves and the environment from the irresponsible industrial production practices used by the largest polluters. The reason for this is, as you many already know, that ‘greenies’ are by and large bought and paid for by Big Business. Every re-known environmental organization — from government and otherwise — is directly or indirectly funded by corporations or by the government itself. These organizations are charged with the responsibility to make us think that we humans are all bad; that we have brought onto ourselves the wrath of mother nature because we have been selfish and greedy. But ask yourself now, in case you haven’t done it before, who are the largest polluters?
Government cannot let the people off its leash, so efforts are on the way to restrict energy and food independence. The war that Big Government is waging against our way of life is not meant to control Big Business so it doesn’t abuse consumers. Rather, it is to ensure that Big Business becomes the sole regulator and provider of everything any human being requires to stay alive. That is why it is common to hear bureaucrats speaking about savagely attacking oil and gas companies, locally managed water companies, independent farmers, ‘prepers’, those who choose to have a garden in their backyard, or even people who sell vegetables or raw milk to neighbors or relatives. For this attack to be successful, government enlists cowardly snitches who enjoy the power trips provided by a badge and a gun. The EPA, for example, is not interested in keeping the environment safe and clean; otherwise they would have already remediated the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico — instead of spraying Corexit –, they would not allow BPA to be used in plastics, they would have prohibited the sale of products that were not properly labeled for their ingredients, and so on.
“I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said: It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them. Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.” These statements in bold summarize what Big Government, in cahoots with Big Business, intends to do with us. They want us to be slaves to them and their policies. I do not need to repeat Monsanto’s idea of the future of food supply, but I am going to. “No food shall be grown that we don’t own”. How much have governments done to assure the people that this will not happen?
When Barack Obama opposes the exploration and extraction of oil and natural gas or the construction of a new pipeline, this doesn’t reflect his interest in keeping the environment clean. Instead, it means he will assure Warren Buffet’ ability to maintain control of the transportation of such resources, a scenario that would end should Obama support the construction of such pipeline system.
When Big Government invests trillions of dollars in new energy sources by providing taxpayer money to dubious enterprises that go bankrupt soon after without producing a single piece of technology that achieves such a goal, it does not mean that government intends to make a country independent from fossil fuels, but that it needs to pay back the thousands of contributions received during the political campaign and to close backdoor deals negotiated during private meetings with campaign contributors and monopoly men.
Big Agra is another example of the ironic world we live in. Because people are now realizing that they need to be self-sufficient, that it is necessary to detach themselves from government and corporate welfare, those two entities are doing everything possible to restrict people who seek economic, health, nutritional and intellectual independence. While only a handful of corporations control the food supply, for example, more people are working hard to put together their own food garden and raise chickens or cows. But in a world where governments are more out of control than ever before, being self-sufficient is a crime. That is why law enforcement, at the behest of Big Government, burn down fields, charge people with crimes for selling raw milk, confiscate food, kick folks out of their properties and ultimately threaten them with long jail terms all for the sake of a saving the environment. In summary, Big Government does everything possible to make us fail; it is coming to take everything we own, everything we’ve earned.
They come to schools and indoctrinate kids to make them believe that it is better to be dead in order to save the environment, they take private lands and ‘protect them’ under the guidance of the United Nations. These lands are, in most cases, later handed to contractors who develop them into large elite-ran facilities for their own enjoyment, instead of conserving them for future generations, which is what they tell us they’ll do. They create policies to manage the food and supplement choices that people have, banning natural treatments while imposing Big Government mandated healthcare that pushes deadly medications on everyone. This in turn will guarantee that more people will become patients of the pharmaceutical industry by having to use their toxic products for the rest of their lives. Some of them don’t even get to use them for that long, as the chemicals in those products kill them before they reach their golden years.
Big Government and Big Business are assuring themselves that we will all need to come to them for anything and everything. Their plans include creating a failed society, where people will follow their corrupt leaders as supposed to holding them accountable. They want to reduce or completely eliminate prosperity and kill people’s dreams of growth, comfort and development. Their policies intend to keep the cost of living so high, through energy monopolies and speculation, that people will beg for action to get cheaper energy or to attack countries to rob them of their resources. At the same time, they will make us feel inadequate for having hot water and electricity in our homes and a car to drive to work. They artificially make energy prices high, so that unreal new proposals for cheaper energy find fertile ground to fall on. They indoctrinate the population to make them believe that progress is responsible for global warming, so that people restrict their needs of traveling, feeding, clothing and leisure. They tell the kids that humanity causes the weather to cool off and to warm up, so we all need to stop driving, flying, feeding and having fun. Then, they call any natural disaster climate change and blame it on all humans.
Meanwhile, the Banking elite blames the nonexistent free-market for the economic crisis and call for a world government to help standardize fiscal, financial and monetary policies, much like they did after World War II, when the United Nations was formed to avoid criminal wars. This elite blames the same prosperity they’ve enjoyed for decades for the warming, the cooling, the crisis and the conflict, so people believe that it is prosperity what needs to go. Many of those people, who’ve never seen prosperity are now strongly condemning it and calling for a global socialist system that helps spread ruin and misery worldwide. They of course, see it as spreading the wealth and as an opportunity to get what they deserve; even though they haven’t earned it. The strong opposition to development the elite finds in the massive ignorant public emboldened them to create regulations that favor their monopolistic control-mad agendas while eliminating their competition; the innovative small and mid-sized businesses. They create and impose globalization as a way to bring about progress, but globalization only brings poverty, environmental destruction and underdevelopment. Globalization and the so-called free trade are indeed the new faces of Feudalism applied on a global scale.
Big Government’s intent is to change our goals and dreams to own a home, raise a family and educate our children. The bureaucrats want us to believe those things are privileges, just as they did with driving and are now doing with free speech and self-defense (owning a firearm). Big Government, under the command of Big Business works hard to make it impossible to live in peace without being bullied for wanting to raise three kids, instead of one, to produce what we eat or to mine the resources we need to build and improve the lives of those who haven’t seen what human ingenuity is capable of. And when they allow people to access high quality goods and services, they do it with a double intention to turn them dependent on those products. Through their hubris filled behaviour, regulators empower themselves to support laws that only the corporations that wrote them can understand and that they can be interpreted vaguely enough to leave open doors for more corruption. They invent unreal conditions and products to rip consumers off, to steal their life savings as they invest their hard earned social security monies into artificial financial products that are as ephimerous are the air. They reward companies that send jobs abroad, or that pay slaves to create the toys and distractions we all waste our time on while they become ever more powerful. They subsidized Big Corp, to eliminate competition and to turn healthy economies into labor camps. They created a financial crisis, and are now charging taxpayers for the costs of getting bailed out.
They’ve now transformed people’s legitimate concern to keep the world we live in clean and healthy, into an agenda of environmental suicide, by allowing toxic products to pollute the air, water, and soils, while banning all forms of creative entrepreneurship that may bring cleaner, simpler, environmentally friendly forms of production. While we the people need to go through austerity in order to ‘save the global economy’, the elite continues to spend our money and our resources in their lavish palaces and large properties. We the dependent and ignorant need to curb our footprint, while theirs grows uncontrollably. The elite-controlled Big Government preys on the decent and honest people, brainwashes their children and bribes their pastors to make them believe that all its corruption and oppression is for the best; that they are the only ones who can deliver us from doom, even if that means that we humans need to learn to hate ourselves.
