I mentioned in a previous post that large industries are trying to claim plantspecies as their own, claim that water is not an every man's right, but should be commercially exploited, that companies genetically alter our food and that politicians do their master's bidding by creating laws that stop or at least make it harder for people to fend for themselves. Here and here.
I find many sources showing, exposing and uncovering the dirty laundry our "leaders" want to keep hidden. The Worldwide money scam, bio engineering in all its forms (monsanto & Co. ring any bells?), 10 methods of mind control on every level and by all means available.... And, more often than not, it seems that the defenders of the old ways are somehow related to either government or large corporations and those opposing it are individuals, who put info and facts together to make up their own picture and mind and spread the word. This pattern is appearent on every critical subject in our world and society and is becoming more and more widespread.
Right here in Sweden there is a foodrevolution going on, where honest vs fake food and true vs false information about that, is in all the media every single day. Two sources who make themselves quite heard are kostdoktorn and Matfusket. More and more people here are waking up and seeing that what we have been told and taught all these years ins't necesserally always true and good! More and more people are actively taking part in this debat and claiming real, honest food and information, dismissing the large scale official propaganda.
And now that we ourselves have been busy producing, receiving, buying and processing local foods it all made sense to me. I now know why those "big boys" are so scared of people asking questions, looking for and finding answers, fending for themselves, why they do not want us to do that and why they'll do anything in order to prevent us from doing that!
Buy local, buy ecological if possible, but support local farmers and smallscale foodproducers.
Grow your own, if possible. And instead of using money; trade! Create a local foodsystem.
The easiest way for us?
Instead of having a concrete backyard like I know many use to have, where I come from, have a green and living one, even if you think you are to tired or to busy for that. It'll revive you, just by being there and you automatically will start taking care of that little green patch.
Throw out those rhodondendrons that only bloom once a year, for a very short period and plant berrybushes, that bloom, attract life and give you free food. Instead of having decorative plants, have a vegetable garden or even blend the two. Why have coniferous trees if you can have fruittrees instead? Not only will the latter provide you with healthy fruit, but it'll also help the native birds and insects. It's also a much more interesting tree, giving you the thrill of budding leaves and blossoms in spring, shade in summer, fruit and colouring autumleaves in autumn.
But it will take some time and effort...
Now this is the part where the "Yeah, but..."s come in.
Yeah, but I haven't got the time......
Turn off your damn tv or iphone for half an hour a day and you'll have all the time you need! Too tired? I promiss you that half an hour spent in your garden will cure a great deal of your officestress and -fatigue.
Yeah, but I haven't got the money.......
The most expensive bag of ecological saladseeds you can find will set you back for about €2, but you'll be eating fresh salad all through summer for practically everyday untill you're sick of it! A head of lettuce will cost you about €1 in the supermarket. Same goes for carrots, beets and other easy crops.
And if you show interest in this, you'll meet other people who share that interest and they are often more then willing to not just share the interest, but also excess seed, knowledge or even tools! Good for your wallet, body and social life. (Here's where some of the real social networking takes place. Better then those socalled "social" media)
Yeah, but I do not have a garden....
You can grow crops ANYWHERE! In the soil, in pots, in a rented patch of vegetablegarden or on your balcony. You can even have lettuce on a windowsill!
Yeah, but I do not have green fingers....
Utter nonsense! No one has at first! But if you are interested, you'll learn.
But it will take time and effort!
However I do think that there is a portion within that group that just needs a wake upcall. And if messages like this one will be send out often enough, then some of those people will be reached, get triggered and start searching and exploring for themselves and will flee from the herd. Those that do not...... Well, let's just say that they brought onto themselves what ever happens to them and they probably still claim it's all just a conspiracy theory. I personally do not feel sorry for them....
If you look around you'll see more and more people waking up, showing their ideas, their solutions, but also often their fight. Those in power also show their true face more and more and resort to more and more extreme or violent measures. More and more the vile truth is showing it's ugly face and the respons in order to keep this face hidden is more desperate. more determined and more forcefully empowered.
I am convinced that we, as a species and as a world as a whole, are facing a turning point, a crucial moment in our existence and I, for one, have chosen my side.
