In my grandpa’s day, just about every house in our neighborhood had a barn. They were the center of our little agrarian community’s economy, usually home to a couple dozen heifers which farmers fed from the surrounding fields and pastures; several times a day the milk truck came to collect their product.
Even as I was growing up here, the big, chrome tanker truck would back up my neighbors’ driveways every morning and every night.
But farming looks a little different now. Today those old barns, the ones still standing, might store some bales or one or two massive modern farm implements, or some old rusty antiques. New steel barns house thousands of head of cattle and milk trucks are constantly emptying the bulk tanks. The tractors that drive by my house now make the old machines look like garden tractors. They travel for miles to get to whichever fields the farmers have been able to acquire so that their cattle can stay fed and happy and productive.
But the heart of farming hasn’t changed. Most farms around our place have either grown or died, with a few admirably stubborn exceptions. They’re still largely family owned and operated multigenerational enterprises run by hard-working men and women who do it because they love it.
But that agricultural legacy is under attack by powerful globalist NGOs, lobbyists, and bought-and-paid for politicians both in our country and around the world.
Under the banner of environmentalism, agricultural economies have already been gutted and destroyed to meet the goals of elites using real people and places as the piece to their own private board game.
Last year, Sri Lanka made the news when it’s synthetic fertilizer ban caused the nations economy to collapse.
At the same time, Dutch farmers were protesting their government’s plans to reduce the nation’s livestock by 30%, which would require healthy, productive cattle to be culled. At the end of last year, the government of the Netherlands was seeking to buy out several thousand farms which they’d labeled “peak polluters.” Those who refused to accept the buyout were threatened with forced buyouts to follow.
The US’ own officials have signed on to the same goals to which Sri Lankan and Dutch governments are committed.
To find out more about how these environmental goals are threatening the agricultural industry here, we strongly encourage you to watch this Epoch Times special at NoFarmersNoFood.com. In the very first few minutes you will see that it is relevant to you, no matter if you live near a farm or far away from agricultural centers in a big metropolitan area. Later, you’ll see that this has been a planned attack on our way of living by building upon a lie which was concocted decades ago! A subscription to EpochTV is required, or new users can get 4 weeks for $4 to watch the movie. For those of you living within vicinity of American Decency headquarters in rural Fremont, Michigan, I encourage you to come to our free showings of this powerful documentary: “No Farmers. No Food. Will You Eat the Bugs?” on Friday, November 3 at 1:00 PM or 6:30 PM.
The following Friday we will be showing another important movie. We want to show Dinesh D’Souza’s latest documentary, “Police State” before the holiday busyness sweeps us all away and diverts our time and attention. Here’s what renowned conservative film-maker Dinesh D’Souza, perhaps best known for his last controversial film on election fraud – 2,000 Mules – had to say about why he made this important film: “’Police State’ is a movie that I never wanted to make, because I never wanted America to get to a point where a movie like this needed to be made. I feel like the animal that alerts the herd to approaching danger, so we can take precautionary steps before it’s too late.”
Conservative commentator and a former federal law-enforcement officer himself, Dan Bongino, is also involved in the making of this film. He says: “The police state isn’t coming, it’s already here.
The signs are everywhere. And once you recognize them, your senses will be heightened to the danger we’re all in.”
This movie will be shown in our auditorium on Friday, November 10 at 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM.
We hope to see you at one or both of our movies in our auditorium (203 E Main St. Fremont, MI) in the weeks ahead.
“No Farmers, No Food: Will You Eat the Bugs?” – November 3, 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM
