As we come to the end of a very consequential year it is a good time to review some issues that have become so important. First, let’s define the words “Control” and Power.
Control: to exercise influence over; to suggest or dictate the behavior of; to have power over.
Power: authority or influence over others.
It is noteworthy to notice that the two words are almost interchangeable.
The past two years have highlighted some incredible examples of control. Let’s begin with China. The Chinese government has been locking down entire cities, some with populations of 26 Million. This has been done in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The lockdown has been so severe that in some cities, people have been locked in their apartments. Consequently, riots have broken out and Chinese citizens are battling the police as they struggle to be free to move around. In fact, very recently, the Chinese government sent tanks into some cities in order to stop the rioting. This event has also not been covered in the majority of American media.
The actions of the Chinese government are an example of control which translates into power. Apparently, the Chinese government had to let up somewhat on the lockdowns because the reaction from the people was too strong for the government to ignore.
What control is happening in our country that we have not seen before the last few years? Let’s start with civil disturbance. People are breaking the law and endangering other citizens with very little effort by elected officials to stop these actions. In fact, in many places, crimes that harm and endanger others are basically ignored. Violent acts do not get these perpetrators arrested for even one day. Jails are emptied because the powers that be state that people who have broken the law will not be treated well in prison. There is no concern for the average citizen who has to deal with the lawbreakers. The control needed for a civil society appears to be gone in many places in the country. Of course, that lackadaisical attitude does not extend to certain people on the “correct” side of the spectrum. They seem to have security. It appears that the criminal element is in control. Many of the “wise people” in power do not seem to understand that some people just cannot live free and not commit crimes.
Where else do we see control and power? Let’s check out the World Economic Forum and the Great Reset. Here is a group of “world leaders” all who have a great deal of money and have decided how the rest of us should live and the rules we should live by.
Klaus Schwab is the Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF). The members gathered in Scotland in May, 2022 with a goal of establishing guidelines to halt so-called climate change and wean the world off the use of fossil fuels (oil, natural gas and coal). When these fuels are consumed carbon dioxide is emitted into the earth’s atmosphere. Many people believe that carbon dioxide helps raise the earth’s temperature. Therefore, in order to save the earth, gasoline should cost as much as $15 a gallon.
However, these very wealthy folks have other plans for saving the earth. Ramon Laguarta, CEO of PepsiCo said the following at the WEF. “Food is one of the main levers we can pull to improve environmental and societal health. With the right investment, innovation and robust collaboration, agriculture could become the world’s first sector to become carbon negative.”
One of the solutions advocated by the WEF to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions is replacing livestock-derived foods with alternative forms of protein, such as insects and lab-cultured proteins, stated in a 2019 white paper commissioned by the WEF.
What does this policy look like in the real world? The Dutch government has proposed to slash green-house-gas emissions by closing dairy farms. Thousands of farms may have to cut their herds. The government aims to halve ammonia and nitrogen emissions by 2030. In order to meet these goals, roughly 11,200 livestock farms would have to close and 17,600 farmers would have to reduce their herds to meet emissions targets.
What would replace this food and these businesses? Apparently, a WEF report states that several indoor agriculture start-ups have emerged, including Ynsect which is the first fully automated vertical insect farm in the world, able to produce 100,000 tons of insect products a year.
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for sustainable development informs government policies to restrict farming and transform the food systems throughout the world. The 2030 Agenda is a plan of action devised by the United Nations to achieve 17 sustainable development goals. The goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development were adopted by all UN member states in 2015. The 2030 Agenda was called “the global declaration of interdependence.”
For many people, the declaration is a direct attack on our Declaration of Independence. We will not be independent nations. We will all be interdependent.
In the future we will discuss three beliefs of many of the WEF members. Many view a future world that consists of artificial intelligence, biotechnology and transhumanism. God is not included.
Reminder: the members of the WEF and leaders at the United Nations will never live by the same rules they have for everyone else. For example, they will all continue to fly around on their own private jets. Will they be munching on insects? Don’t bet on it!
What is the average person to do when confronted with idealogues at the WEF and the United Nations? Oh, let’s not forget the idealogues we have in government in the United States.
Time for a little history. Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda was an evil man. However, he understood two very important things. He knew that most human beings are generally uninformed and believe what they want to believe. He also knew that if you repeat a falsehood often enough many people will think it’s true.
How does any of the above information apply to the average person? Unfortunately, Goebbels’ statements apply to many Americans who are not aware of what is going on in the country and much less the world. Lack of knowledge on critical issues means that very poor decisions will be made.
People who are concerned about the condition of the United States need to be aware of what is going on. That starts with knowing what is going on in your local community. Do you know what your local city council and board of supervisors are doing? How about your school district? What are our children learning? Is the curriculum meant to strengthen the United States or is it meant to radically change the country? The issues that are mentioned in this newsletter all point to one underlying principle. If you care about your country based on our founding principles then you, the voter must pay attention to what is going on and very possibly be prepared to step into the arena and support good candidates or even run for office. Good thoughts for the New Year.
