How is your womban doing? Prayerfully your family and yourself are well.
(I had answered some questions you asked me a couple of pages back, not sure if you had seen it. Bringing it back again with a couple more links)
IPXninja: "When you say they poison... It isn't the government that comes to your farm and adds poison to your crops. It's the farmer believing that his pesticides are safe because of a commercial for Roundup. How would he know Roundup has chemicals that cause cancer? The company that owned Roundup was Monsanto."
It is the government with its polytricksters that provide incentives for the use of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, etc making it appear safe for farmers to use on crops when they are actually poisoning the crops and themselves from the exposure to such chemicals. And it is the polytricksters who get paid by companies like Monsanto (as in on the payroll like Rumsfeld) and that change the laws and regulations of the FDA and USDA, in the USA and other organizations in other countries.
How would a farmer know these chemicals are poison? Some farmers read and educate themselves about what they are spraying on their crops. More and more farmers are stoping their use of these chemicals because they have learned that they are killing themselves and their soil.
XPninja: "But you have to look, with a critical eye, on who is actually doing what because I feel like you're blaming the government for production which it is not (At least in the US) involved in. The US isn't communist so it doesn't control the means of production. It simply regulates."
I do not separate the government from it's politicians. The polytricksters make and change the laws; and they allow poison in our food and medicine. In fact they make
a lot of money from doing it.
And while you say that the government "doesn't control the means of production. It simply regulates." I would have to argue that the government does control the means of production through its regulations.
IPXninja: "Government do subsidize different crops, but again, they don't control the means of production so they can't force anyone to sell poison. Because the government doesn't produce anything it also cannot produce an alternative to what private individuals or companies are producing."
The government does regulate the means of production. They can make the chemicals illegal. Many countries have banned the use of the very same chemicals that the US government allows companies and farmers to use in their production.
IXPninja: "So I hear what you're saying, but you're arguing against things that has to be done to protect the population."
I don't sight it as such. What the government and its polytrickters are doing is hurting the population: they are not protecting the population. How does adding known poisons to our foods & medicines protect the population? Bellies not hungry; but it is now full of cancer, or other diseases and illnesses.
I said there are better ways, higher ways; and IPXninja you said, "Do these better ways scale? Please explain an example or two."
Here are some links to people and organizations that are producing higher quality goods and services (products you can truly call good) in better ways.
