In reading this post from @kennyskitchen recently, I learned how Alex Jones' media outfit 'infowars' had published an absurdly misleading and nonsensical piece about veganism - all but blaming vegans for everything under the sun.. I am surprised we weren't blamed for 911 and spread of Malaria in Africa... Generally, the point was made that veganism is some kind of 'globalist plot' or at least supports 'the globalists'.. I can't resist replying to this.
The basic claim here is that veganism (the non exploitation of living beings and thus the non eating of dead animals and non use of their secretions) requires plant based goods to be transported globally to get around seasonal growth patterns. The claim is then also that this 'feeds in' to a 'threat' of a 'one world government' whereby people will be 'deceived' into wanting to be vegan then will support/promote a one world government to somehow sustain their plant based diets. LOL. If I have misunderstood this, please correct me.
There are so many points and issues here I am not sure where to start.
Firstly, the Earth IS ONE planet. The artificial division into districts is entirely fictional and only exists within the minds of those who believe in it and enforce it. There are many who prefer not to have any boundaries at all - yet these 'patriots' often deny that by forcing boundaries on others, THEY are overpowering others in exactly the kind of way that they fear 'globalists' will do through setting up a government that 'rules the world'.
The fear they are being driven by is that of a centralisation of power such that the majority have no power and the tiny few have it all. They think that this requires a 'one world government' - when in reality we are quite close to this situation already - without a one world government. The problem is NOT and has NEVER been 'one world', since 'one world' is the natural state anyway. The problem is hierarchic domination, overpowering and a centralisation of power. The problem is IMBALANCE.
As long as people are out of balance, the door is open for loss of power, loss of freedom and loss of life. What is being missed here is that forcing death and destruction on the animals of the planet is a form of imbalance. We cannot continue in a state of imbalance and expect imbalance in other forms to end. Everything is connected.
The mass murder industry known as 'meat and dairy' is A DIRECT REFLECTION of the kind of structure that the 'new world order' represents - it basically IS part of their system. Only those who are indoctrinated and still stuck in one of their thought prisons would fail to see this. We cannot solve problems from the same level of consciousness at which they were created - this is a given. Look for a moment at how 'the problem of nutrition' is being 'solved' through a death, torture and exploitation machine in almost exactly the same way that 'the problem of personal power loss' is being 'solved' by the 'new world order's 'war, death, drugs, oil and gold' machine. The systems are almost identical energetically, the main difference is that animals are the victims of the meat/dairy machine and humans are the victims of the war/politics machine.
Given that this is the case and having had countless debates and discussions with others where I have heard just about every possible justification for support of the death machines - I am confident that no evidence can be provided to rebutt this that cannot be countered honestly and completely.
Given that this is the case, the only remaining issue here is that of how to live as a vegan without relying on suppliers of food in remote locations to bypass the issue of the changing of the seasons. This is a good question. If we live near the equator, this becomes less of an issue and in tropical climates our lives become significantly easier when it comes to locating fresh, nutritious plant foods. Perhaps much of the answer is in those who inhabit the colder climates relocating to a more intelligent area instead of vampiring on the creatures who are more adapted to live on the plants there already.
Beyond this we can obviously use technology to grow plants all year around in any location now - with minimal transport and trade globally.
Is there really a requirement for us to be able to eat foods grown locally though? While I agree it is an ideal - we don't tend to hear Alex Jones complaining about how all of his studio technology was imported and how Asian technology corporations are part of a globalist agenda, do we? How about the internet? Sounds like another globalist plot to me. lol.
The fact here is that Infowars has blatantly and foolishly manipulated and twisted the truth like some kind of greedy and paranoid fantasy machine - which is sad to me since in the early days I feel they put out some good documentaries on important topics. But hey, maybe I'm wrong and maybe Alex will stop shipping his range of supplements and tangy tangerine internationally to avoid feeding in to the agenda he claims to oppose.
