Ron Nilson wrote on Oped News regarding the food industry on 8/21/16. The title of his article should hit the reader between the eyes regarding the danger he or she is in if they are shopping in conventional corporate stores. The title of the article is Long as You Buy, Big Food Big Food Doesn't Care if You Live or Die. Beautifully put. Take it to heart!

As George Carlin stated in one of his comedies regarding Corporations, "They don't care about you! They DON'T Care!" He's right, you know?

Ron Nilson's article is at: http://www.opednews.com/articles/Long-as-You-Buy-Big-Food-by-Ron-Nilson-Addictive_Agriculture_Consumer_Dairy-160821-317.html

I advise the reader to read Nilson's article in order to comprehend the "Big Picture."

This current article I am writing and presenting to you has some consistency in what Ron is speaking of. I'm hoping to provide some reinforcement for his work.

This article is a second part to the previous article I wrote. I concluded this sister article to an earlier writing from me titled, "From Evolution to Devolution," with this paragraph:

"Nature has spent millions of years evolving millions of species whose interactions create thousands of complex, interactive ecosystems that the human species are just learning to understand and appreciate. Humanity (the Western, 'civilized' part of it anyway) has spent the last few thousand of those years disrupting and destroying nature's work. Every technological advance we make has broken down parts of natural evolution. We are in ever increasing danger of destroying a habitable planet including our own species. Humanity, friends, is turning out to be devolutionary not evolutionary. If we don't immediately use our highly evolved intelligence, communication, and compassion to undo the damage we have done and continue to escalate, we have declared war on ourselves as a viable species. Mass destruction cannot be called 'evolution.' We must stop the 'progress' we are making towards going the way of the dinosaurs."


Now we are moving in the opposite direction, which is away from Devolution and Extinction and back towards Evolution and Life.

This article is a clarion call to repent and change our ways before we destroy ourselves, and the world, as we inhabit it.

Today's chaos, frightening and oppressive as it is, allows us some hope of breaking the chains of our top-down system. Indeed chaos is more bottom-up than top-down. It is systemic more so than controlled by the ruling class of a self-appointed ruling species. Perhaps true change occurs during times of seeming randomness that gives birth to alternative systems. Perhaps the future entails life on this planet that we would never recognize in our water and oxygen-based planet and human mindset?
