According to a report issued by the National Intelligence Council (NIC) titled, Global Trends 2030:Alternative Worlds, food and water shortages will reduce the United States to third-world status. They indicate that it is not ‘carved in stone however it does seem that with the current trends by our government, it will happen, unless an alteration of course is pursued in the very near future.
I feel that most Americans are too trusting of the government and the propaganda they are bombarded with by the privately-owned major media. Most Americans still believe that the media represents some truth in journalism standards that will keep what the government tells us as being truth. it seems obvious that nothing can be further from the truth.
We live in a world that is becoming more totalitarian every day. keeping people in fear of wars and terrorism has created a generation of people who fear that only the government can save them from certain death. The people of America are terrorized more by the so-called Transportation Safety Administration than they have been by any terrorists.
Government mandates, regulations, and taxes have driven farmers into bankruptcy or out of business before they faced bankruptcy and/or foreclosure. Many have sold out to corporate food producers like ADM, Burlington, or Monsanto, who have replaced healthy and naturally grown foods with genetically modified organisms that been banned in some nations because of their detrimental effects to the health of the consuming public.
It would seem logical that these mutant strains will eventually be incapable of supporting life, and hence the predictions of the Global Trend 2030 document may become reality. There is a solution.
We must stop the proliferation of these GMO foods. Legislation alone will not do it. We need to support the local farmers who use heirloom seeds and grow their crops without modern chemical fertilizers. These chemical are also contributing to decline of potable water.
Desalination using sun and wind power sources like Israel does, will provide the necessary potable water for drinking and irrigation. Most importantly is to reduce dependence on government and free the markets to grow once more.
Don’t expect the government to capitulate to the people when they have demonstrated their disregard for the well-being of the people and embrace the corporate lobby. Demanding a return to constitutional limitations of the government will only work when the States protect and support their own residents against the tyrannical federal government.
