The World Economic Forum is now the self-designated world-saver — not only from climate change, but also from global starvation. The rationale employed is that climate change is paramount, agriculture is a major culprit, and cows and other livestock are really terrible, so the WEF will embrace insects (and technologies that create fake meat) to replace them. Cows will disappear, while billionaires profit and dominate global food supplies.
This scam is reminiscent of saving humanity from a disease created in a lab using vaccines that don’t work but profit billionaires and consolidate global totalitarianism. Or perhaps it reeks of inflaming fears of fabricated climate Armageddon from which globalists will rescue humanity by raping the planet of scarce natural resources to manufacture solar panels and EVs in China, accelerating pollution while amassing huge profits for select corporations. To, you know, save the children and all.
The argument for insect consumption is based on circuitous lies:
The surge in demand for animal protein has also contributed to an increase in greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide). These gases lead to extreme weather conditions, ozone depletion, increased danger of wildland fires, loss of biodiversity, stresses to food-producing systems and the global spread of infectious diseases. Even today, climate changes are estimated to cause over 150,000 deaths annually.
Cows cause the global spread of infectious diseases? (Must be they were milling around in a market, and jumped species.) How did AOC miss that when she critiqued their flatulence? Recall that Mad Cow Disease was created by humans feeding body parts from sick cows (or humans?). But the FDA assures us all is well in Soylent Green Land:
The parts of a cow that are not eaten by people are cooked, dried, and ground into a powder. The powder is then used for a variety of purposes, including as an ingredient in animal feed. A cow gets BSE by eating feed contaminated with parts that came from another cow that was sick with BSE. … Certain high-risk cow parts are not allowed to be used to make any animal feed, including pet food. This prevents all animal feed from being accidentally contaminated with the abnormal prion. By keeping the food that is fed to cows safe, the FDA is protecting people by making sure that the food they eat comes from healthy cows.
The plan now is to feed bugs to cows instead. Liberals freaked out about bovine growth hormones but applaud experimental gender hormones for prepubescent children. A recent global initiative calls to switch all school lunches to bugs, to wean kids off evil meat.
This house of horrors is built on a foundation of lies. Cows eating grass convert sunshine to food, restore soils, and generate organic manure necessary to replace the synthetic fertilizers and GMO chemicals the WEF says it must procure from (WEF members) DuPont, Dow, or Bayer (formerly Monsanto) to protect the environment. The livestock tortured in confined industrial farming are fed mostly GMO-dependent grains, and their manure is spread not by perambulating bovines, but by fossil fuel–guzzling, computer-controlled tractors. The industrial pollution thus generated is then used to justify eliminating all cows.
Most humans want a juicy burger, not crunchy, chitinous bugs. It is true that some cultures eat cockroaches as well as grasshoppers; other insect-foods include waxworms, beetles, spiders, moths, bees, dragonflies, ants, crickets, scorpions, and locusts. Some 2,000 insects have been documented as edible, but most people would rather not eat them, regardless of what documents say.
The globalist propaganda machine strives to convert humanity from a diet of steaks and wings to cricket chips and cockroach burgers. People smile dismissively when such unappetizing fare is suggested, but this is no joke — towering Chinese fortresses surrounded by fish-filled moats house as many as one billion cockroaches. The Great Reset says, “This bug’s for you!”
