Prince Chuck Bucks GMO's and So Do I

Headline: Prince Charles warns GM crops risk causing the biggest-ever environmental disaster "...he accused genetic engineers of taking us into 'realms that belong to God and God alone...'" Say what you will about the Prince, but he's right on this one.

Whatever happened to observing nature and learning from nature? Of course, that takes humility in the presence and acknowledgment of the majesty of Creation. Instead we are presently dealing with the arrogance of welfare/corporate scientists sucking the lifeblood out of the natural world and replacing it with synthetic substitutes. For what? Loads of fiat money devaluing by the day. It's just another abominable violation of Natural Law. When man plays God, things don't go so well for man.

It has nothing to do with luck and everything to do with choice. Here's a question for you:

Are you of the mindset that posits the only way to feed people is by genetically modifying crops so that they can tolerate more toxins being sprayed upon them?

This kind of bone-headed thinking is made possible by the misplaced value in fiat money and the power it buys. When people are forced to sustain themselves on factory-farmed food they eventually rely on pharmaceutically-compressed tablets to suppress their nutrient-deficiency disease symptoms that inevitably erupt. While it is great as a business model for Big Pharma, it destroys the ability for a people to live in liberty.

"So long as one feeds on food from unhealthy soil, the spirit will lack the stamina to free itself from the prison of the body." -- Rudolf Steiner

Any man forced to sustain his body on polluted and deficient food will have difficulty recognizing freedom and living according to its principles. Instead, his ailing body will force his depleted vital force to focus upon ways to regain metabolic integrity. In the United States of Drugmerica, this means utilizing state-sanctioned medical methods that do nothing to correct the underlying cause of his metabolic missteps. Instead of healing, government-mandated distractions serve to redirect all energies away from freedom to mere survival. A starving population is one that can be directed to anything, even those things not in their best self-interests, like war and conquest.

In America, we have the calories to stave off hunger, but not necessarily the minerals to stave off starvation. How can we be expected to think clearly, individually or as a nation, when our brains lack the key elements to make recognition of cause and effect a no-brainer? Case in point, if we were nutritionally sound, there is NO WAY that we would buy into the choice of a Barack and a McCain place. Instead, millions of nutritionally-deficient Americans will dutifully resign themselves to the victimization of the Democratic-Republican Hegelian Dialectic, made even more meaningless by the sponsorship of Diebold (or whatever they call themselves now).

Defeatism is not the hallmark of a people who love liberty. It is evidence of a low state of survival consciousness brought about after generations of nutritional beatings. It is said that that which does not kill you only makes you stronger. Of course, that requires that we awaken BEFORE the thing that doesn't kill us has time to stamp us with an expiration date.

What do we value? A drowning man values air, because it is obvious to him that which he is lacking. A starving man with a full belly does not necessarily crave nutrients, because he has never been taught that the lack of them results in his medical diagnosis or symptoms. This physiological blind spot results in the desire for a doctor's prescription for the synthetic sustenance of the medical police state instead of nutrition. Kind of like an alligator's death roll, it spirals us downward to complete nutrient depletion while providing us with the illusion that the gator-spin is an FDA-approved amusement park ride designed for our amusement.

Is this how freedom ends? Save the food or lose your liberty. There is no Democrat, Republican or Monarch alive that can save you if you are unwilling to do that which results in health and vitality. Prince Charles is right about the danger of genetically modified synthetic agribusiness, but as long as we keep buying it, they'll keep modifying it. If you keep pulling the lever for establishment candidates and expect to get a different result because one of them orates the word "change" with great eloquence, then keep consuming empty calories and the government-sanctioned soma to make the pain go away even when it doesn't.

For those who love freedom, there's always non-GMO organic food and The Campaign for Liberty.
