So let me see if I’ve got this right.
We allow the adulteration of our food supply by profit-motivated Corporations, with deliberately unknowable doses of toxic chemical additives and assorted biological corruption – antibiotics, non-nutritive fillers, high-fructose corn syrup, bleached-then-“enriched” flours, endocrine-disrupting pesticides, brain-fucking synthetic colorings, unreported heavy metals and unlabeled Genetically-Modified Organisms (GMOs).
We allow those same profit-motivated Corporations to likewise degrade the feed supplies with which we nourish our beef cattle, our chickens, our turkeys, our pigs and our dairy cows.
We allow our Congresspeople to eagerly subsidize still more profit-motivated companies to dump nuclear, petroleum, fracking and industrial wastes into the oceans, waterways, reservoirs and aquifers that provide us our fish, our shrimp, shellfish, potable water and crop irrigation.
We allow Corporations to almost fully control the seed stock, the genetics, the production protocols and the patents to our fruits, grains, legumes and vegetables.
Corporations then generate our foodstuffs from all of these tainted raw materials, with profit-margins, risk mitigation strategies, shareholder dividends and reprehensible C-level payoffs in mind.
We then allow these same Corporations, after generous publicly-funded government subsidies, to provide the only truly affordable foodstream for the masses, feeding known poisons to our bodies and to our families, whereupon each generation after the next just happens to suffer from statistically significant increases in gastrointestinal and immunological compromise.
Lupus. Fibromyalgia. Cancers and tumors of every shape and size. Crohn’s. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Celiac disease…I mean, GLUTEN? Allergic to BREAD for fuck’s sake? (Anybody’s great-grandma allergic to BREAD?)
We allow these same profit-hungry Corporations to suppress and obfuscate research efforts proving that all these adulterations are responsible for human suffering, while allowing massive media conglomerates to control the messaging.
Something even wicked’er this-way-comes, as a never-ending supply of encapsulated chemical compounds hit. The drugs to suppress the symptoms of physiological decline, coupled to the tsunami of additional drugs pushed upon us to suppress the psychological toll of that physical suffering.
Of course, the untoward side-effects of all of these compounds is fertile ground for the development of NEW revenue-streaming drugs, and the media is more than happy to show you cartoon bees and people in bathtubs holding hands to prove their usefulness in your daily routine.
And so the juggernaut grinds on. Just witness this:
OK? Everybody on board with that?
We are a Nation of freedoms, after all.
Free to feed your child piles of industrial shit, followed by sledge-hammer psych meds for their induced ailments.
Free, that is, of course, unless you want to do research on, or medicinally use, Cannabis.
We are doomed.
