Is it Organic?
This probably isn’t on your radar yet...
Under the guise of producing food that’s allegedly purer, more nutritious, more humane and easier on the environment, organic activists actually seek to make all food more expensive.
They funnel the money being spent by trusting consumers (three-quarters of whom buy organic at least once a week!) into tax-sheltered war chests that fund campaigns against modern, science-based food companies.
While a small portion of the $30-billion per-annum raised in the American organic sector goes to organic farmers, most of it passes right through farmers’ hands and goes to groups like HSUS, EWG, WWF, The Cornucopia Institute, The Tides Foundation, and countless USDA-accredited organic-certifying agencies which are supposed to police the organic industry.
This marks the ascendancy of the hippie movement of the 1960s. Everything else this movement ever tried required that people STOP buying things, whether it was fur, meat, wood, fuel for our cars, or cars themselves. But now these activists have found a way to ENCOURAGE people to buy − i.e. organic, local and humane food − and thereby fund their anti-technological revolution.
This is unprecedented.
It started back in the 1970s when the Students for a Democratic Society (Bill Ayres and co.) followed the Cloward-Piven Strategy to get the majority of citizens living in Western free-market economies onto welfare in order to crush the government under what they called “the weight of the poor.”
The plan worked in other countries (France, Spain, Portugal and Greece for instance), but North-American prosperity and ingenuity prevented most Americans and Canadians from signing up for a free ride. Only inner-city dwellers were duped, and so we enjoy a much higher standard of living in North America thanks in large part to affordable food. Indeed, we spend about half what Europeans do on food as a percentage of income. Until now…
I work with The Heartland Institute, and post articles on free-market websites. I also have a new book out that exposes the true goals of the organic movement. I speak frequently before agricultural organizations and corporations, and I want to speak with you about how you can help save the North-American food system. Because, believe me, it ain’t just going to save itself.
Why not find out how you can help rein in the organic hype? After all, your livelihood and our standard of living quite literally depend upon doing so.
