Food as a Weapon: Starving Us into Submission

It does not take an agronomist, far less a rocket scientist, to realize that carbon dioxide is necessary for plants to grow. For plants it is the breath of life; they breathe carbon dioxide as we breathe oxygen. We exhale the carbon dioxide they need, while they exhale the oxygen we need. (S. M. Smyth)


Remember, too, that at a time when people are very concerned with their health and its relationship to what they eat, we have handed over the responsibility for our nourishment to faceless corporations. ― Lynne Rossetto Kasper

GM has never been about feeding the world or tackling environmental problems. It is and has always been about control of the global food economy by a tiny handful of giant corporations. It’s not wicked to question that process. It is wicked not to. 

Zac Goldsmith

To preserve the human race, it is now necessary to reorganize society. To this end, an Authority must be created with the power to control human population, to redistribute food, to purify air, water, soil, to re-pattern the cities. — Gore Vidal

Would food be considered an instrument of national power? . . . Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth? 

Henry A. Kissinger

Food as an Instrument of Control and a Weapon of War

Along with control of our movements, associations and speech, we are now facing control of our food supply.

In the long history of the annals of war, unsurprisingly, conquerors discovered the use of food as a weapon with which to subdue a captured population. [1][2]

Made weak from the lack of adequate nourishment, or outright starving, a people can easily be managed; desperation will bring them to heel, famine will seal their fate.

Lenore Newman, author of Speaking in Cod Tongues: A Canadian Culinary Journey:

‘If we look at the history of colonization, the first settlers really relied on Indigenous foods, and collaborating with Indigenous people to stay fed . . . But when we get into the country-building period, we see food being used as a weapon.’

Newman cited examples of settlers taking control of salmon distribution on the West Coast, or the Canadian government’s move to wipe out the buffalo in hopes of starving First Nations across the prairies.

She also mentioned how Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald infamously ‘bragged’ about using food as a weapon against Indigenous peoples. [3]

Ironically, perhaps, and certainly interestingly, Ms. Newman is a member of the B.C. Food Security Task Force, which in 2019 produced a report entitled The Future of B.C.’s Food System. [4 ]

A sample quote: ‘An agritech incubator-accelerator can play a pivotal role in fostering a culture of innovation in B.C. and building a supportive and collaborative ecosystem for the burgeoning agritech industry.’

Zero Carbon Dioxide Equals Zero Plants 

It does not take an agronomist, far less a rocket scientist, to realize that carbon dioxide is necessary for plants to grow. For plants it is the breath of life; they breathe carbon dioxide as we breathe oxygen. We exhale the carbon dioxide they need, while they exhale the oxygen we need.

Greenhouses, at considerable expense, have carbon dioxide dispensers, which fill the air with many times the normal level to achieve enhanced growth. The plants flourish under these conditions, more than justifying the initial financial outlay. [ 6]

Now ‘climate change’ has evolved into a plan for ‘zero carbon,’ which logically would result in zero plants and zero people, and your ‘carbon footprint’ has evolved into your ‘carbon foodprint.’ [ 7]

At the current COP 26 confab in Glasgow, the organizers have helpfully labelled food items in the cafeteria accordingly. Though I doubt that many at the top of the heap—who undoubtedly arrived in their private Lear jets which must spew nothing but water vapour—will have any such accounting thrust before them as they tuck into their venison, salmon or lobster swimming in butter. And, since they are in Scotland, let us not forget the haggis, prominently featured as a high carbon item in ’The Scottish Larder.’

Regulatory Capture: Codex Alimentarius

Presumably operating under the influence of the saying that ‘the best way to rob a bank is to own one,’ the Codex Alimentarius was set up preemptively to regulate the worldwide production of food and food supplements by The World Heath Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1963. [8]

According to Wikipedia: [9 ]

The 2003 International Commission of the Future of Food and Agriculture. . . chaired by anti-globalization activist Vandana Shiva, issued several manifestos . . . [they] contended that “bureaucracies like the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the Codex Alimentarius have codified policies designed to serve the interests of global agribusiness . . . while actively undermining the rights of farmers and consumers”. . . The Codex Alimentarius has been the subject of various unfounded conspiracy theories . . . [that] it is an agenda for population control, an anti-supplement Big Brother initiative, actually establishes eugenics, or a process for World Government establishment.

Dr. Rima Libow has written extensively on the Codex, which she summarizes in 7 points. [10]

In an open letter she states: ‘I am not an alarmist, nor do I wish to be the bearer of bad news, but I can do no less than give you my fair and frank diagnosis: this silent, but deadly monster is about to render your healthcare freedom extinct.’ [11]

David Klein, writing for Living Nutrition Magazine vol. 20, September, 2007, calls it a ‘Mononstrously Toxic Power Play for Control of the Global Food Supply & Natural Health Industry.’ [12 ]

Julian Rose, explains:

Using Codex Alimentarius clauses of the World Trade Organisation governments have already been influenced to pass laws severely restricting the use of native seeds and a wide variety of fruit and vegetables once on sale in traditional grocery stores.

The population as a whole is now confronted by the despotic Green New Deal programme forcing its fake ‘zero carbon’ policy on humanity and weaponising it to be the vector for the digitalisation and re-engineering of the food chain, as described earlier.

The largely synthetic diet that emerges out of this sterilisation programme will free-up the land for what is termed ‘re-wilding’, the leisure pursuits of the wealthy and large scale US style robotic factory farming units. [13]

Back to the Stone Age

It would seem that the masters of manipulation, at this stage of their bold experiment, not satisfied with poisoning us with toxins in the air, water and food—to say nothing of pills and injections—now want to choke off our rations.

Christian Westbrook, in his excellent video series, [14][15 ][16] has documented the unfolding of an agenda, already baked into the cake we will not be eating, to shut down the various elements of the food supply chain we have taken for granted all the days of our lives. At least for most of the, so far, lucky inhabitants of the so-called ‘First World.’

Researcher James Corbett has also extensively documented the subject. [17]

Europeans and North Americans have enjoyed the luxury of abundant food flown from the farthest reaches of the globe. It is hard for the average denizen of our great cities and comfortable suburbs to imagine, in spite of now visible shortages, that the day may come when the groaning supermarket shelves are well nigh empty, save for state-approved lab-grown delicacies. And perhaps not much, if any, of that unless purchased with an official ID—which has documented all vaccination, purchasing, and social media records.

So will the cupboard be bare for those who have been naughty and not nicely trotted along to the tune the mighty media plays by day and by night? The announcers, like latter-day Pied Pipers, sing their siren song, luring many to their doom with empty promises of a brighter future. The wiser rats, having fled the sinking narrative, swimming to a safer shore, are left to their own devices.

One wonders how the average urbanite will fare, when faced with the prospect of dwindling supplies of food, and perhaps even water, fuel and power. Do our devices include ways and means to cope with a reasonable facsimile of a failed state, similar in many ways to countries recently ‘bombed into the Stone Age’ as some have gleefully chanted?

Dr. Klaus’s New World Order Diet

Who would have thought that the director of the World Economic Forum, Herr Klaus Schwab, would brave the fierce competiton among a plethora of pundits in promoting the latest version of the diet to end all diets?

And yet here we are, shepherded willy nilly into not only experimental inoculations but hitherto unforeseen experiments in culinary adventure.

Not of course that this august personage will be trying out the schema outlined by the Rockefeller Foundation in the now infamous ‘Reset the Table: Transforming the U.S. Food System.’ [18] Oh no, the dainties dancing on the head of his sugar plums, a veritable smorgasbord of all his brave new world has to offer, will be nothing like the austere and sometimes downright disgusting fare offered to the vermin crawling hopefully over the crumbs from his high table.

No cricket croissants for Herr Swab, Bill Gates, Henry Kissinger, George Soros, and the rest of the merry band of brothers—and a few notable sisters—at the latest Davos do, as those permitted still to fly in the face of Greta’s groupies ‘dwindle down to a precious few.’

One can only guess at the kind of table set before such luminaries, and perhaps just as well, as it would not do for the underlings to envy their overlords too much, lest the restless natives think the unthinkable and rouse to attack the unspeakable.

One can only hope that, along with a few bears not yet ready for hibernation, the current popularity of picnicking along the streets, avenues and boulevards of our large cities and small hamlets will grow, and echoes resound to that great call to arms:‘Picnic on!’
