You first

I put science here in quotes because this isn't nearly as much science as it is elitism. And I say to the elites proposing this nonsense: YOU FIRST. You guys are the ones gorging yourselves on expensive fare in Davos right now. And yet you can't be bothered to do the things you want to force on others.

    Just shooting from the hip here, but it would seem to me there must be a reason why no advanced human culture on the planet has made insect consumption it's main meal. This is a bad road to go down.

    Yes, blarman, I agree to say to those elitist busy body control freaks, "You first". I'm reminded of the conversation in "The Outlaw Josey Wales" of the Chief and the snake oil salesman:

    Chief: "What's in it?"
    Salesman: "Well, I don't rightly know."
    Chief: "Then you drink it."

    FTR, we know that the Fake Meat has been an abysmal failure. When it was the LAST Thing on the store shelves during the height of food shortages, it told the truth. NOBODY wanted it. Even in Desperate Times. Realizing that it represents far less than 1% of the food available, it was still there when the 99% had all been stripped bare.

    Now for these bugs. We have ZERO idea if we can digest this stuff SAFELY. Most living organisms (like plants) have defense mechanisms to prevent them from being eaten...
    Some design indigestible seeds, wrapped in sugar/fiber, so they get pooped out with stuff the bacteria enjoy, and then fertilize...

    But we live in Clown World... Where the UK signed a deal to switch ALL FLU vaccines to mRNA vaccines.

    A vaccine in which you can NEVER know the dose of exposure, because we have NO IDEA when (or IF) the body ever stops making what the mRNA codes for (Spikes, in the current cases).

    Think this is dangerous?
    Dr. Martensen points out that this is leading to a form of Immune Therapy, where the more doses you get, the LESS Likely you are to clear the infection. Hence the vaccinated are succumbing to the virus more than the unvaccinated. And starting in MAY of 2022, most countries STOPPED reporting the BREAKDOWN of who is dying. Because it does not UPHOLD their narratives.

    Now we will have a food additive. Nobody will know the dose that bothers them.
    Those with Celiac understand that it does not take much Gluten to cause MAJOR problems.
    There will be a bell-curve of susceptibility. Meanwhile, RAISING Cattle PROPERLY replenishes the earth.

    But those are NOT allowed to be options.
    Our energy is being taken away. Our Taxes will skyrocket.
    Food Shortages are coming.
    And now MORE poisonous food additives are being added to every day things as filler.

    Of course... in Clown world, someone else will have to do an RCT trial on removing this stuff to show it is dangerous.
    And then the media can ignore it, like they ignore proof that the Ketogenic Diet is the #1 way to reduce/reverse Type 2 Diabetes. And if you treat people for their underlying FOOD ADDICTIONS... It is very sustainable.

    But when you live in a stressful world, where your ONLY TRUE JOY comes from Junk Foods...
    Well imagine first what that does Physically... And Mentally to our society...
    And now think about these young kids. The thin ones look mentally unhealthy...
    The others are both mentally and physically unhealthy...

    Methinks they will own nothing and be miserable... But they will THINK they are happy!!

    Government has outlived its usefullness. Its just a way for the elite in government to force things down on others, and to reap the good stuff for themselves. I GeT it.

      It's a difference in the kind of government. We used to have government OF the People, BY the People, and FOR the People. Elitists all throughout history have wanted to eliminate such government and replace it with authoritarian/elitist government. They are lazy and power-hungry.

        Well, I suspect that even in the beginning, government here in the usa was for at lest SOME of the people, at the expense of other people. Its a basic problem of metering out force in a human environment. I am not so sure things were that good, given that the government decided to NOT allow states to secede, with the result in a civil war that decimated the south for the benefit of the north.

          You present two questions. First, does one actually need government?

          This is actually two questions: can you do everything yourself (No) and are you better off agreeing with others and creating a society? (Yes) When you do that, you automatically create some level of government. You create specialization within society and give certain people control over the aspects you are less efficient at in exchange for some of your support (usually monetary in taxes). The key, of course, is how to keep that level of delegated (governmental) control in check.

          The second question is what kind of government one agrees to form. If that government is built upon a premise of protecting natural rights, it can be a moral and sustainable government. If it is not built on that premise, it will be a government of force and coercion.

          "given that the government decided to NOT allow states to secede"

          Those States agreed to form a "more perfect Union" and signed an agreement which did not provide terms for their secession. The Union States had no moral or other obligation, therefore, to permit them to secede at all. Indeed, when one examines the Founders debates on the matter at the time of the Constitution, one finds that they all realized that they required unanimity in this regard or their own destruction was assured through foreign conquest. (Remember, the English still controlled Canada, the French the Mississippy, and Spain Florida and much of Alabama/Mississippi. The fledging United States was very weak militarily.)

          The other aspect which gets glossed over here was whether or not that secession was based on a failure of the Federal government of the United States at that time to uphold their rights and freedoms. The short and unequivocal answer is that the seceding States all cited in their formal Letters of Secession that it was their desire to maintain the enslavement of other human beings which was driving them to secede. Thus they had zero moral high ground upon which to justify their secession. What really happened was that in 1856, the population of the House and Senate (because of population growth in the industrializing non-slave States) made it impossible for the Southern States to maintain their political leverage in favor of slavery.

    Such a great discussion going on here! These grotesque creatures are laboring mightily to birth a gnat, or in this case, a cricket, and any humor ( no matter how sick or gross) is needed to highlight their idiocy! Go Gulchers!
