We are currently seeing an acceleration of the corporate consolidation of the entire global agrifood chain. The high-tech/data conglomerates, including Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Google, have joined traditional agribusiness giants, such as Corteva, Bayer, Cargill and Syngenta, in a quest to impose a certain type of agriculture and food production on the world.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is also involved (documented in the recent report ‘Gates to a Global Empire‘ by Navdanya International), whether through buying up huge tracts of farmland, promoting a much-heralded (but failed) ‘green revolution’ for Africa, pushing biosynthetic food and new genetic engineering technologies or more generally facilitating the aims of the mega agrifood corporations.
Of course, those involved in this portray what they are doing as some kind of humanitarian endeavour – saving the planet with ‘climate-friendly solutions’, helping farmers or feeding the world. This is how many of them probably do genuinely regard their role inside their corporate echo chamber. But what they are really doing is repackaging the dispossessive strategies of imperialism as ‘feeding the world’.
FAILED GREEN REVOLUTION
Since the Green Revolution, US agribusiness and financial institutions like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have sought to hook farmers and nation states on corporate seeds and proprietary inputs as well as loans to construct the type of agri infrastructure that chemical-intensive farming requires.
Monsanto-Bayer and other agribusiness concerns have since the 1990s been attempting to further consolidate their grip on global agriculture and farmers’ corporate dependency with the rollout of genetically engineered seeds, commonly known as GMOs (genetically modified organisms).
In her latest report, ‘Reclaim the Seed’, Vandana Shiva says:
In the 1980s, the chemical corporations started to look at genetic engineering and patenting of seed as new sources of super profits. They took farmers varieties from the public gene banks, tinkered with the seed through conventional breeding or genetic engineering, and took patents.”
Shiva talks about the Green Revolution and seed colonialism and the pirating of farmers seeds and knowledge. She says that 768,576 accessions of seeds were taken from farmers in Mexico alone:
…taking the farmers seeds that embodies their creativity and knowledge of breeding. The ‘civilising mission’ of Seed Colonisation is the declaration that farmers are ‘primitive’ and the varieties they have bred are ‘primitive’, ‘inferior’, ‘low yielding’ and have to be ‘substituted’ and ‘replaced’ with superior seeds from a superior race of breeders, so called ‘modern varieties’ and ‘improved varieties’ bred for chemicals.”
It is now clear that the Green Revolution has been a failure in terms of its devastating environmental impacts, the undermining of highly productive traditional low-input agriculture and its sound ecological footing, the displacement of rural populations and the adverse impacts on village communities, nutrition, health and regional food security.
Aside from various studies that have reported on the health impacts of chemical-dependent crops (Dr Rosemary Mason’s many reports on this can be accessed on the academia.edu website), ‘New Histories of the Green Revolution’ (2019) debunks the claim that the Green Revolution boosted productivity; ‘The Violence of the Green Revolution’ (1991) details (among other things) the impact on rural communities; Bhaskar Save’s open letter to Indian officials in 2006 discusses the ecological devastation of the Green Revolution and in a 2019 paper in the Journal of Experimental Biology and Agricultural Sciences, Parvez et al note that native wheat varieties in India have higher nutrition content than the Green Revolution varieties (many such crop varieties were side-lined in favour of corporate seeds that were of lower nutritional value).
These are just a brief selection of peer-reviewed and ‘grey’ literature which detail the adverse impacts of the Green Revolution.
GMO VALUE CAPTURE
As for GM crops, often described as Green Revolution 2.0, these too have failed to deliver on the promises made and, like the 1.0 version, have often had devastating consequences.
The arguments for and against GMOs are well documented, but one paper worth noting appeared in the journal Current Science in 2018. Along with PC Kesavan, MS Swaminathan – regarded as the father of the Green Revolution in India – argued against introducing GM crops to India and cited various studies about the failings of the GMO project.
Regardless, the industry and its well-funded lobbyists and bought career scientists continue to spin the line that GM crops are a marvellous success and that the world needs even more of them to avoid a global food shortage. GM crops are required to feed the world is a well-worn industry slogan trotted out at every available opportunity. Just like the claim of GM crops being a tremendous success, this too is based on a myth.
There is no global shortage of food. Even under any plausible future population scenario, there will be no shortage as evidenced by scientist Dr Jonathan Latham in his recent paper ‘The Myth of a Food Crisis’.
However, new gene drive and gene editing techniques have now been developed and the industry is seeking the unregulated commercial release of products that are based on these methods.
It does not want plants, animals and micro-organisms created with gene-editing to be subject to safety checks, monitoring or consumer labelling. This is concerning given the real dangers that these techniques pose….
Is it really necessary to point out that they obviously want to create a shortage of safe, nutritious food? Everything is about depopulation with these people.
With the world being told that so-called ‘vaccine passports’ will be required for all international travel in future, and in many countries even to enter shops, restaurants, bars, gyms, hotels, theatres, concerts and sports events, the impression we are being given is that the measure is a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic. In Europe, however, which hosts 8 of the top 10 pharmaceutical exporting countries, planning for vaccine passports began at least 20 months prior to the start of the COVID-19 outbreak. Apparently, the pandemic conveniently provided European politicians with the ‘excuse’ they needed to introduce the idea.
The ‘European Commission’ – the executive body of Europe – first published a proposal for vaccine passports on 26 April 2018. Buried deep in a document dealing with ‘Strengthened Cooperation against Vaccine Preventable Diseases’, the proposal was essentially ignored by the mainstream media.
A roadmap document issued in early 2019 subsequently set out specific plans for implementing the European Commission’s proposal. The primary action listed in the roadmap was to “examine the feasibility of developing a common vaccination card/passport” for European citizens that is “compatible with electronic immunization information systems and recognized for use across borders.” The plan aimed for a legislative proposal to be issued in Europe by 2022.
Interestingly, the roadmap uses several terms that, while relatively uncommon in most countries prior to the pandemic, have since become heard on a daily basis in the mainstream media. Perhaps the most notable of these is ‘vaccine hesitancy’. Supporting European countries in “countering vaccine hesitancy” is listed in the document as one of the key action points.
The possibility of pandemics and “unexpected outbreaks” occurring is also referred to in the roadmap. Revealingly, specific reference is made to supporting the authorization of “innovative vaccines, including for emerging health threats.” Stating that the “vaccine manufacturing industry” has a “key role” in meeting the aims described in the document, the roadmap lists “improving EU manufacturing capacity” and stockpiling vaccines as further action points to be considered. Towards strengthening “existing partnerships” and “collaboration with international actors and initiatives,” the roadmap also refers to a global vaccination summit meeting that took place in September 2019. A close examination of the attendees and subject matter for this meeting is revealing.
The 2019 Global Vaccination Summit
Unreported by most mainstream media outlets, a ‘Global Vaccination Summit’ was hosted in Brussels, Belgium, on 12 September 2019. Organized by the European Commission in cooperation with the World Health Organization, the meeting took place just 3 months before the coronavirus outbreak began. Significantly, this was also only 36 days before the now infamous coronavirus outbreak simulation exercise, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Economic Forum, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, which took place on 18 October 2019.
An invitation-only event, the vaccination summit participants included political leaders, high-level representatives from the United Nations and other international organizations, health ministries, leading academics, scientists and health professionals, the private sector, and non-governmental organizations.
The summit was structured around three round tables entitled ‘In Vaccines We Trust’, ‘The Magic Of Science’, and ‘Vaccines Protecting Everyone, Everywhere’. Notable panel members for these round tables included Nanette Cocero, Global President of Pfizer Vaccines; Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of GAVI, the Global Vaccine Alliance – an organization that has received vast amounts of funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; and Joe Cerrell, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Managing Director for Global Policy and Advocacy.
Pandemic planning was clearly in evidence at this summit meeting. Key documents distributed to the participants included reports on ‘Pandemic influenza preparedness planning’, ‘A pandemic influenza exercise for the European Union’, ‘Avian Influenza and Influenza Pandemic Preparedness Planning’, ‘Pandemic influenza preparedness and response planning’, ‘Towards sufficiency of Pandemic Influenza Vaccines in the EU’, and ‘A “Public Private Partnership” on European Pandemic influenza vaccines’. Across all these documents, the goal of strengthening collaboration with the pharmaceutical industry is repeatedly stressed, as also is the message that a global pandemic was now inevitable….
The annual training exercise is garnering extra interest on the heels of WEF’s ominous 2019 ‘Event 201’ which simulated a pandemic that presaged the actual COVID-19 pandemic mere months later.
On July 9, business, government, and supranational organization leaders will team up for an event called Cyber Polygon, to simulate and respond to a damaging cyber threat, “a targeted supply chain attack on a corporate ecosystem in real time.”
The training exercise will build upon ‘Concept 21,’ the WEF’s branding of global digitalization trends by which they sense an opportunity for more power to try to shape humanity to their liking.
“As the global digitalisation is further accelerating, the world is becoming ever more interconnected. Digital ecosystems are being created all around us: countries, corporations and individuals are taking advantage of the rapid spread of the Internet and smart devices. In this context, a single vulnerable link is enough to bring down the entire system, just like the domino effect.
A secure approach to digital development today will determine the future of humanity for decades to come.
Cyber Polygon 2021 will enable the spectators and participants to improve on their cyber literacy, enhance the resilience of their organisations and learn to repel cyberthreats on all levels. […]”
The global elites that comprise the WEF are among the most progressive and audacious when it comes to pushing for ‘change’ through international governance and corporatism campaigns. It is the kind of change we’ve become all too familiar with since the advent of SARS-CoV2 pandemic policies and the Woke Cultural Revolution, two thrusts embraced enthusiastically by WEF Founder and Executive Chairman Professor Klaus Schwab, along with the Green Movement and ESG standards.
Schwab has been at the forefront of leveraging COVID chaos (and helping foment racial chaos) to push a Great Reset of the international governance regime in an apparent scheme toward one woke world government ruled by statists, crony corporations, and a cabal of central bankers….
So, in that context, what could Cyber Polygon portend, if anything? Let’s take a look at the globalists’ dreamed up scenario:
“Recent years have seen a surge in the number of attacks targeting supply chains. Given the global trend towards the development of ecosystems across the business community, the vulnerability of supply chains has become a growing concern. With that in mind, the central theme of the training this year will be ecosystem security and mitigation of supply chain attacks….
Their use of the term “ecosystem” is illuminating. Clearly they’re not referring to the physical world, they’re talking about the financial/legal/organized crime construct from which they gain their sustenance. The physical world is only there to harvest for the benefit of their “ecosystem”. In other words, they’re not living in the same world as the rest of us, but rather some kind of emergent parasitic overlay.

The US Strategic Command warned on Monday that the US must be prepared for nuclear war.
They’re itching for a conflict and what could be better than nukes?
The SUN reported:
THE United States must prepare for nuclear war as current conflicts could escalate “very rapidly,” according to a stark warning from the US Strategic Command on Monday.
It came ahead of the agency speaking to Congress on Tuesday morning where they warned that the US is currently facing “two nuclear-capable, strategic peer adversaries at the same time” from Russia and China….
Going to war to shore up a US-installed fascist appendage in ukraine isn’t my idea of national security.
Meanwhile they STILL haven’t hardened the electrical grid, renovated underground shelters, set up regional food distribution warehouses, distributed iodine tablets etc. Why should they? The transnational invisible government’s main enemy is the western middle class.
Mainstream media outlets are continuing their fear-mongering over new variants. They continue to tell us that the vaccines won’t be enough. Nothing short of your full and complete enslavement to the state will suffice.
Science Daily is calling for a global strategy of “maximum suppression.” And we should all know by now they don’t mean they want maximum suppression of any virus. They want maximum suppression of humanity. It’s more than obvious this is all about control and has nothing to do with health.
This continuing narrative is being crafted this way on purpose and the goal is to “vaccinate” as many humans as are willing with the experimental gene therapy they are falsely calling a vaccine.
We are going to be propagated with the news that wants us tracked, traced, chipped, surveilled, and “vaccinated” at any cost. All of this is a part of the larger New World Order agenda and it will never end until we are enslaved, or wake up to what is being done.
They have even told us this won’t end until the whole world is vaccinated, and yet now, they say vaccines aren’t enough.
So when will enough be enough? For a world full of brainwashed sheep bowing to the rulers and worshipping their political masters, that line hasn’t been crossed yet.
Prompt vaccine rollouts alone will not be enough to achieve this; continued public health measures, such as face masks and physical distancing, will be vital too. Ventilation of indoor spaces is important, some of which is under people’s control, some of which will require adjustments to buildings. –Science Daily
Basically, they want you to get in the habit of blindly obeying any arbitrary command they have and then it’ll be over. But of course, we’ll all be in a complete state of totalitarian slavery where being a human will be more of a punishment than anything else.
