First kumara, then potatoes, now pumpkin prices are sky high … the uncomfortable truth about the control of your food supply

“…control food and you control the people …”

Kissinger: “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.” US strategy deliberately destroyed family farming in the US and abroad and led to 95% of all grain reserves in the world being under the control of six multinational agribusiness corporations….SOURCE

Henry Kissinger is on record as saying that. Now why would  Kissinger want to control people? If you’ve never pondered that question you’ve probably been listening to mainstream media which would’ve told you he never said it and in fact nobody wants to control people & such thoughts are the product of the conspiracy machine. He’s on metabunk as having not said it. Not the place to look for truth. There are sites like that Rat-Tumor-Monsanto-GMO-Cancer-Study-3-Wide2.jpgthat say Professor Seralini’s research on glyphosate (the rats with very large tumours that Monsanto didn’t find because they only tested their rats for the required 90 days) is fiction. If you find something there or on similar sites you can be sure there’s a likelihood it is true.

As Noam Chomsky pointed out, in both “old” and “new” world orders the central goal has pivoted around the issue of control: “Control of the population is the major task of any state that is dominated by particular sectors of the domestic society and therefore functions primarily in their interest …”[1] Such “particular sectors” as referred to are the minority elite, who pursue controlling strategies to “engineer” nation and international affairs in line with their aims. And these aims are for the most part based on greed and power; and the need to keep the masses contented and docile.  SOURCE

Continuing with the food topic, did you notice the sequence of price rises? Here in NZ, first kumara, then potatoes, now pumpkin. I saw a blogger post a pumpkin with $17 on it (NZ) recently. A month ago I bought one for $3. Just as I was telling my family after the potato price hike, buy pumpkins when they’re cheap and add them to your mashed potatoes. (Along with telling them, grow your own potatoes). Did you also notice that in between the potato and the pumpkin price hike came the introduction of … ta da … GM potatoes? Quite strategically done I thought. And you can bet I’m sure those potatoes when they’re grown here in (not) clean green, (not) GE free NZ, that they’ll be cheap as chips no pun intended but it does fit quite nicely – given chips are quite a staple, as are the other items on the now outrageously dear and out-of-the-reach-of-many-families aforementioned staples. Think potato chips for instance, and fish and chips. And finally, yes, it’s the weather that’s created this problem but look who has a hand in the weather as well. It’s well documented.

And finally, whether deliberate or not, you need to read Susan George’s ‘How the Other Half Dies’ (free pdf) on hunger and who’s causing it in the so called undeveloped countries that were very rich in resources when the colonizer ‘found’ them. (For other good reads on topic see our resources page at the main menu. And watch ‘The Corporation’ movie on the Corporations pages for an insight into how corporations work for themselves and not you).

Time to grow your own food and stop supporting corrupt corporations. Or buy from your local farmer market.

  1. WE DO HAVE LOCAL FARMERS, BUT THEY ARE HARD TO REACH, SINCE MOST IF NOT ALL ARE LOCATED IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE STATE, AND SOME IN THE EXTREME SOUTHERN PART. WE CAN NOT GROW OUR OWN FOOD, DUE TO APARTMENT STYLE HOUSING. THIS COMING THURSDAY, I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT, WITH A LOCAL AGENCY HERE THAT HAS A FOOD PANTRY. THERE ARE HOUSES HERE, BUT THE ONE’S WITH THE HOUSES, DO NOT HAVE AMPLE SPACE TO GROW THEIR OWN FOOD, AND NOT THE TIME TO DEVOTE TO GROWING. THE ONE’S WITH THE MOST MONEY, GO TO THE MOST EXPENSIVE AND THE ORGANIC. I SHALL BE THANKFUL, WHEN THE JOB MARKET MAY PICK UP, THEN I CAN TAKE MORE BUS TRIPS TO SHOP AT AN ALDI’S SUPERMARKET HERE. OUR RENT HAS GONE UP, DUE TO WATER AND SEWAGE, COUPLE OF DAYS AGO, EVERYONE AT OUR APARTMENT COMPLEX RECEIVED NOTICES ON THEIR DOORS AND OURS. I SHALL BE GLAD TO ONCE AGAIN, TO SHOP AT A KROGER HERE, THAT REQUIRES A BUS TRIPS, SINCE IT IS NOT IN WALKING DISTANCE. IF YOU DO NOT HEAR FROM ME FOR SOMETIME, WE ARE ALL HERE IN THE COMMUNITY TRYING TO SOLVE FINANCIAL DILEMMAS. SLEEPLESS NIGHTS ARE VERY COMMON. KEEP ON BLOGGING, I STILL SHALL KEEP A TELESCOPE AND A SET OF BINOCULARS OUT FOR YOU AND THE REST OF OUR FELLOW PARTICIPANTS.

    1. All the best with that futuret. I hear what you’re saying. A lot of our avenues for solutions get blocked. I imagine you’ve noticed?? people are growing things in all kinds of small spaces these days… fascinating. But yes if you are needing to bus to do things I can imagine … not easy. Blessings & prayers for you 🙂

  2. WE ARE FEELING THE PAIN OF PRICING HERE, WHERE I LIVE IN THE STATE OF GEORGIA. VERY RECENTLY, THEY CLOSED ONE STORE, WHERE I RELATIVELY ENJOYED SHOPPING, AS THE PROVIDED COMPETITIVE PRICING. THEY CLOSED THAT STORE, DUE TO EMPLOYEE THEFT, AND NOW I AM FORCED TO SHOP AT A STORE NEARBY, WHERE PRICES ARE TAKING OFF AS FIGHTER JETS. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED TO HAVE SEEN MY OTHER STORE CLOSE.
