Food prices are manipulated on a global scale by a handful of giant food producing corporations. Don’t buy into flim-flam about energy costs (which are also manipulated by monopolistic practices), biofuels, etc.
It’s very simple: When a few men and companies gain control of a supply (food, oil, water), they will abuse their power. It is up to us to educate ourselves and our communities, and then take aggressive action.
Understand that ‘Free Trade’ is a euphemism for creating global monopolies; and any legislation with that designation should be vigorously opposed by citizens.
From reviews of F. William Engdahl’s Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation:
“If you want to learn about the socio-political agenda –why biotech corporations insist on spreading GMO seeds around the World– you should read this carefully researched book. You will learn how these corporations want to achieve control over all mankind, and why we must resist…” -Marijan Jost, Professor of Genetics, Krizevci, Croatia
“What is so frightening about Engdahl’s vision of the world is that it is so real. Although our civilization has been built on humanistic ideals, in this new age of “free markets”, everything– science, commerce, agriculture and even seeds– have become weapons in the hands of a few global corporation barons and their political fellow travelers. To achieve world domination, they no longer rely on bayonet-wielding soldiers. All they need is to control food production.” -Dr. Arpad Pusztai, biochemist, formerly of the Rowett Research Institute Institute, Scotland
