“The mind, once enlightened, cannot again become dark.” ––Tomas Paine in a letter addressed to Abbe Raynal on the Affairs of North America
In keeping with the theme of this blog, Creating a New Earth Together, I would like to share an important and entertaining interview with Dr. Vandana Shiva by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. I am posting it as specific and prevailing events that define aspects of a world passing away as a new world emerges through passionate souls such as Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Dr. Vandana Shiva. Robert is a tenacious researcher and challenger of the status quo whose expressed mission in life is to expose in the light of truth those who work in the shadows to enrich themselves at the expense of the larger body of humanity and of the Natural World; and Vandana is a bright spirit and beautiful human being who embodies vibrantly the Divine Feminine as a worthy spokesperson for Mother Earth. I love her fun-loving, impish smile and can-do spirit. (You can follow the interview with the transcript below the video.)
In this interview we gain a broader awareness of what’s happening behind the scenes in the commercial agriculture industry and the commandeering of our food supply by land-grabbing tycoons enriching their portfolios by buying up farm lands along with global seed banks and genetically modifying seeds in order to grow plants that are impervious to weed-killing glyphosate in Roundup. There are fifteen of these seed banks in the world cataloging, storing and preserving some 786,000 different seeds for growing our food on the planet.
The goal of these billionaire-backed technocrats is to solve humanity’s problems with their technology, such as world hunger. The problem is their technological solutions only create more problems, such as greater starvation in third-world countries where the soil is depleted by chemical fertilizers that stimulate the plants to grow fast and produce an empty harvest. Technologies that promote back-to-back planting and harvesting, exhausting and depleting the soil of minerals, and destroying the microorganisms that make our vegetables and fruit rich with life-supporting vitamins and minerals. This is happening in India, Vandana’s homeland, and has been for some time:
Vandana: I see the industrial agriculture and industrial processing and the industrial mindset as invasions into our bodies. Earlier, it was happening indirectly, the cancers through the toxics. You’ve been fighting on the Monsanto cancer cases. All of that is an invasion into the body. But now there’s a conscious denial that there’s a harmony between the soil’s health, the plant health, and our health. Our gut microbiome is a rain forest of diversity. And if it doesn’t receive diversity of food and it doesn’t receive fresh food, it is like a war against our gut microbiome, which is 90% of us in terms of biodiversity. We are 10% human, 90% other beings who keep us healthy, who make us. And the war against our bodies is at its last stages. (Emphasis added)
But it’s happening at a time when awareness on health is growing so much. Where awareness of biodiversity is growing so much. And now they’re thinking, “Oh, [let’s do] what we did when colonialism started, just change the mindset, call them barbarians, civilize them.” I mean, they’re basically carrying on the civilizing mission narrative. And that’s why I wrote my book, Oneness Vs. the 1%. I said Bill Gates keeps talking about innovation; all he’s doing is colonization. And I’ve basically shown how it’s colonization.
ROUNDUP’S GLYPHOSATE — A DETERGENT
It’s worth noting, as RFK, Jr. explains, how glyphosate in Roundup kills vegetation by sucking the minerals out of plants. This chemical, an industrial detergent that chelates minerals — accidentally discovered to also be an herbicide then bottled and marketed as such — has found its way into our bodies via our food where it’s reeking havoc in the lining of our intestines causing the modern condition known as “leaky gut syndrome,” the underlying cause of food intolerances and many diseases.
We need to stop the genetic modifying of our seeds and food supply. WE NEED TO WAKE UP AND RECLAIM OUR LAND, OUR FOOD AND OUR HEALTH !
The whole truth and full scope of this existential crisis is discussed at length in this interview.
AS A CLOSURE, Vandana invites us all to become Earth Activists to protect our Home and reclaim our food through “nonviolent regenerative agriculture” and biodiversity; to put our hands in the soil and bless the Earth with our loving and caring touch.
