“… This initiative instigated by the Australian Federal government will lead to the over-prescription of drugs to children. However, the problem is not only localised in Australia, but is one that has the potential to affect all children around the world. In a study released by Medco Health Solutions Inc in the United States, it was revealed that over 25% of children and teens are taking some sort of prescription medication. Many of the prescription medicines identified in the study were statins, ADHD pills, antipsychotics, and sleeping pills. All of which have been shown to cause considerable harm. The continuous encroachment of Federal Government Agencies into the lives of our children is alarming. In this example, testing three-year-old children for mental illness is not only unethical, it is wrong and immoral.
“The mental well-being of children cannot be improved or modified by intervention from the Federal government and will only further exacerbate the difficulties both parents and society have in combating the globalist agenda and the continuous assaults on our freedoms and liberties from Governments around the world.”
Is obstetrical abuse and circumcision part of the elite agenda for the masses? What better way to destroy families and communities and oppress the individual? Not to mention providing plenty of future business for the psychopharmaceutical industry.
“A former Pakistani diplomat has told the BBC that the US was planning military action against Osama Bin Laden and the Taleban even before last week’s attacks. Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, was told by senior American officials in mid-July that military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October.
“Mr Naik said US officials told him of the plan at a UN-sponsored international contact group on Afghanistan which took place in Berlin. Mr Naik told the BBC that at the meeting the US representatives told him that unless Bin Laden was handed over swiftly America would take military action to kill or capture both Bin Laden and the Taleban leader, Mullah Omar.”
“President Bush was expected to sign detailed plans for a worldwide war against al-Qaida two days before Sept. 11 but did not have the chance before the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, U.S. and foreign sources told NBC News.
“The document, a formal National Security Presidential Directive, amounted to a “game plan to remove al-Qaida from the face of the earth,” one of the sources told NBC News’ Jim Miklaszewski. The plan dealt with all aspects of a war against al-Qaida, ranging from diplomatic initiatives to military operations in Afghanistan, the sources said on condition of anonymity.
“In many respects, the directive, as described to NBC News, outlined essentially the same war plan that the White House, the CIA and the Pentagon put into action after the Sept. 11 attacks. The administration most likely was able to respond so quickly to the attacks because it simply had to pull the plans “off the shelf,” Miklaszewski said.”
“To preserve American military preeminence in the coming decades, the Department of Defense must move more aggressively to experiment with new technologies and operational concepts, and seek to exploit the emerging revolution in military affairs. …
“Any serious effort at transformation must occur within the larger framework of U.S. national security strategy, military missions and defense budgets. The United States cannot simply declare a “strategic pause” while experimenting with new technologies and operational concepts. Nor can it choose to pursue a transformation strategy that would decouple American and allied interests. A transformation strategy that solely pursued capabilities for projecting force from the United States, for example, and sacrificed forward basing and presence, would be at odds with larger American policy goals and would trouble American allies. Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.” — The neocon’s founding policy paper, “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” published in september 2000
Would you know how to feed yourself and your family if the local supermarkets were empty? There’s no shortage of information about gardening on the web. When you conclude that the system is hopelessly corrupt and predatory, that the question is when and not if it will collapse and bring down the food distribution system with it (as almost happened in 2008 when the commercial paper market froze) you’ll want to investigate local food varieties. According to The Future of Foodhttp://www.personalgrowthcourses.net/video/gmo_food_genetically_modified 97% of the vegetables in north america at the turn of the last century are now extinct. That seems excessive, but there’s no question that we are far too dependent on monocultures that require toxic chemicals, are vulnerable to insect infestations and which restrict our access to nutrients our species has eaten for thousands of years. The video World Without Cancerhttp://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4312930190281243507 claims that a vitamin B17 which has vanished from western diets prevents cancer. The american cancer society claims this is quackery. Unfortunately one must always consider the economic interests of medical institutions when evaluating their proclamations. One must also consider how the industrialization of agriculture has affected the variety of commercial crops available. Personally I have no way of knowing if B17 is a real vitamin, but it’s a safe bet that the more we diversify our food intake the closer we will be to the diet our species has evolved to eat.
It’s also true that a great many weeds around here are actually edible and delicious. I eat lamb’s quarter with breakfast almost every day. I don’t have to cultivate it, it grows like crazy around here. Google “edible weeds” and you’ll get an idea of nature’s abundance and how ignorant we are of free alternatives to the system. Many “weeds” were probably on your grandmother’s table at one time or another. It would be a good idea to start trying to recover this lost knowledge while the web is still functioning. There are a few front yards in columbia which have kicked the grass habit and gone with cultivated biodiversity. Not only are they beautiful, many of them are probably largely edible. And no need for toxic chemicals or lawnmowers.
And then there’s chickens. A whole other story. But highly recommended especially now that columbia allows them in your back yard. Not only are they easy to manage, they produce excellent fertilizer and eat insect pests like ticks.
I’m kinda rambling here, but I wanted to throw in what I think is the most important key to future survival: meeting your neighbors. We have everything we need right here in mid-missouri if we can only unplug from the TV monoculture and rediscover why so much of our brain mass is so well adapted to interacting with human communities. Networks are the most robust form of chemical, biological and social organization. They are what life IS. What we are. Humanity has been infected with an ideology of hierarchy and uniformity, but that’s not how nature or physics works and it’s not sustainable. Sustainability requires diversity. Just ask an irish potato farmer.
