Putting the machine in reverse

The neoconservatives knew well what they were getting the world into when they were planning their diabolical scheme of what they chose to call "free trade' and globalization and what Milton Friedman and his Chicago boys called neo-liberalism. What it really meant was the invasion of the Empire and the Multinationals into all the nooks and corners of the world that would prove profitable for the West. It simply meant devouring the third world countries for the profit of the Corporations who were going to rule the planet.

We want to take a giant step backwards, get back to the days of sustainable and biological farming, back to the days when foods were not shipped across the planet, back to the days when local businesses provided work for people and also provided the products to sell to the community, back to the days when trucking and the military were not consuming the energy that is needed for peaceful and local purposes.

We want to leave behind us the artificial global economy, created from greed and the military-financial drive for power and world-wide domination. The hydra is getting very close to ruining us and the entire planet.

Who will kill the hydra?

"The right to food is a human right," stated the special rapporteur, who will present his full report to the UN in New York on October 27. ... The chronic lack of food in sub-Saharan Africa is particularly worrying, he said. Over a third of the region's population is now considered malnourished, with numbers of underfed soaring from 88 million in 1999 to 200 million in 2001."
