Re: [fukuoka_farming] New worl order and the massive metods of production
- Hi Comecoagulos,
Is "Le Monde selon Monsanto" the same as "The World according to
Monsanto"? I watched it and its pretty enlightening to know Monsanto's
ways of controlling the World's foods. As Mr.Kissinger once said
"Control a nation's oil supply and you control the country's
government, control their food and you control the country's
Zeitgeist is an awesome movie too. But is of little significance to
this mailing list, I think. Though I know what you're getting at... ;)
One really feels powerless in front of corporations like Monsanto.
However, most tend to underestimate modern society's reliance on
fossil fuels a bit too much. That's where the System's strength has
been thus far ... and that's where its demise is going to be.
Just take modern Industrially produced food : needs cheap energy and
cheap fossil fuel based chemicals (from
fertilizer/pesticides/mechanised farming to the just-in-time economic
model aimed at high efficiency using transportation powered by cheap
fuel). Today, fish caught in Argentina is filleted and canned in China
and comes to the US to be sold at the Mal Warts - and at every step of
this chain, there is dependence on (what has been thus far) cheap
When energy prices soar, the free market far from coming up with an
effective solution called "Alternative Energy" will send a lot of
these connecting elements bankrupt allowing only those who can afford
to encourage the alternative.
This method of food production won't last long post peaking of world
oil production - whether peak oil has already happened (World oil
production has stayed flat since 2005 and prices rallied until last
year's historic crash from $147/bbl) or whether its going to happen in
10 years... this can't go on forever. Ultimately, a large beast like
Monsanto might come down to it's knees much like the woolly mammoth...
whose thick fur allowed it to survive and rule the planet during the
ice age... was the cause of the mammoth's extinction when the planet
started warming. Strength is Weakness.

founder of Permaculture principles and practices.
2. "The power of community" - how Cuba had to produce food locally
after the soviet collapsed and it had huge oil supply issues and trade
embargos imposed by the USA (and pro-USA nations). Interestingly, the
sector that got affected as soon as Cuba's oil supplies were affected
was the Agriculture sector.
... Talking about Monsanto, did you know about the "Doomsday" Seed
(Monsanto, Du Pont, Standard Oil Company and a lot of 'related' others
funded this vault).
