GM crops: Hunger as the key to world domination

by Vicky Pelaez at 29/05/2013 12:46

Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people (Henry Kissinger)

Throughout human history, major world powers have tried to gain control over regions of geo-economic interest, seeking new tools to manipulate every aspect of human life.  And in the current era of globalization, our entire planet is a target.

Since weapons and energy resources are apparently insufficient for total control over the world's nations, power-hungry globalists like David Rockefeller have come up with the idea of using people's daily need for food as a means to achieve global dominance.

During the Vietnam War, another Machiavellian politician, Henry Kissinger, incorporated that idea into Washington's diplomatic agenda. Food has since been converted into a weapon - one that can be even more powerful than weapons of mass destruction. Food was instrumental in the 1973 military coup in Chile against the legitimate government of Salvador Allende.

In the early 1980s, illuminati globalists came to the conclusion that the most effective way to gain control over the world's food supply was to reduce seed diversity. They wanted to narrow down the abundance of traditional regional and national seed varieties to just a few or even a single type of seed for each crop, with distribution controlled by a small number of transnational corporations.

This is how the era of genetically modified crops began. It eventually gave rise to what the US scholar and author F. William Engdahl called "seeds of destruction" in his book "Seeds of Destruction: Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation." The agriculturally developed nations of México, Brazil, Colombia and Argentina were chosen as testing grounds. Carlos Menem brought to the Argentine presidency a neoliberal agenda and an ambition to be admitted into the world's club of the rich and powerful nations, prompting David Rockefeller to choose Argentina as the base for his first GMO experiments. The corporations Monsanto, Cargill Inc., and DuPont decided to transform agriculture in Argentina, making soy the dominant crop. They pledged that soy production would yield enormous profits for Argentina - a prospect more than welcome in a country burdened by a huge foreign debt. According to Engdahl, as early as 1991, before genetic modification was accepted in the United States, Argentina was already a "secret experimental laboratory for developing genetically engineered crops" with its people acting as unwitting guinea pigs.

To facilitate the modification experiments with corn, wheat, cotton, sunflower and soy, the Menem government provided GMO transnationals with vast tracts of farmland. Members of the National Advisory Commission on Agriculture and Livestock Biotechnology (Conabia), set up to supervise the experiments, always held their meetings behind closed doors. This is hardly surprising, given that the commission was packed with employees of Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta, Dow AgroSciences and other GMO giants. Aware of the tremendous potential of GM foods, international corporations like Seaboard Co., Cargill and George Soros' Quantum Fund began snatching up large plots of farmland in Argentina and, later, in Brazil, Paraguay, Colombia, México, Guatemala and Uruguay.

Agriculture in Argentina has undergone radical transformations in a span of just one decade. Back in 1970, soy crops in Argentina were grown over an area of 9,500 hectares while now the total soy cropland surpasses 18 million hectares, yielding more than 35 million metric tons a year. Argentina is currently the world's largest producer of soy oil and flour, and also the third largest producer of soybeans. At the same time, the country has stopped being a major producer of diverse natural foods for the domestic and the international markets alike. Almost 100% of the soy currently produced there is of the glyphosate-tolerant (RR) transgenic variety. It occupies 50% of the country's farmlands.

Some 200 million liters of glyphosate sprayed on the crops annually, the displacement of farmers, food shortages, new diseases, and more frequent floods and droughts - this is the price that the Argentine people have to pay for the soyazation of their agriculture. In his book "Seeds of Destruction: Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation," Engdahl warned the Argentine government that at the current pace, the country's farmland would be ruined in just 50 years, adding that in this globalized world, no one seems to care about the future.

In the meantime, the profits of GMO transnationals continue to soar, as does their control over seed production across the world. The newly-developed Terminator gene enables the production of sterile seeds, using a synthetic chemical catalyst, Traitor, to activate or deactivate certain genetic features of a crop and to control seed sterility. In Guatemala, Brazil, Argentina and México, RR corn has already contaminated non-engineered corn varieties, and now the same is happening to cotton, wheat, sunflower, alfalfa and other crops.

Monsanto and other GMO transnationals have persuaded Washington to throw its weight behind the biotechnology industry's global agenda. According to the NGO Food & Water Watch, the State Department lobbies foreign governments to pass GMO-friendly policies and regulations. According to cables made public by WikiLeaks, the governments of 113 of the 193 UN member states were approached by US officials on this issue between 2004 and 2009. Washington is promoting the consumption of GMO foods globally, claiming that this will help combat hunger along with creating conditions for development.

México is another new convert. Here, Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow AgroScience, Bayer and PHI México have not just imposed the use of GM seeds, but have also  brought under their control the production and distribution of foods, which means the end of food sovereignty for the nation.

In the 1980s, the Reagan administration developed a plan for global domination through the control over food supply, officially conditioning food aid on a country's conduct toward the United States.

A newly-enacted US provision places Monsanto, Syngenta, DuPont-Pioneer, Dow, Bayer and Basf above the judicial system, allowing them to ignore judges' rulings to suspend the sowing of transgenic seeds, including rulings based on scientific evidence that such crops pose a threat to public health.

The United States is currently the world's largest soy producer, with an output of 63 million metric tons per year; transgenic RR soybeans account for 90% of the total. The same trend is evident on the corn and alfalfa markets, with Monsanto's GM varieties jeopardizing organic plants and traditional small-scale farming. However, the US Agriculture Department would like us to believe that consumers do not care whether or not the foods they eat contain genetically modified ingredients.

In an effort to achieve world domination through the use of "seeds of destruction," the globalists rely on the media to confuse public opinion by passing off lies as truth. They choose to turn a blind eye to the recent declaration of the FAO's NGO Forum for Food Sovereignty, which stated that the monopolization of GMO technology by a few transnational corporations poses a major threat to the nations' food sovereignty.

But the end justifies the means, as they say. Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer, Dow, Syngenta, Bayer, and Basf are just a tool the globalists wield to undermine the sovereignty of the world's 193 nations, exploiting the ignorance and individualism of their people and the docility of their governments.
