According to WorldHunger.org the current world scenario is under a food shortage crisis. And the World Food Program states that the major aspects of this rising phenomenon are natural disaster scenarios scattered across the globe such as drought.
Also, this situation has become more aggravated as the industrial farming and agricultural sectors in the U.S. and many other parts of the world, have poor resources and land distribution as a result of global monopolies, financial speculators, and unregulated global markets.
Imagine, this. The governments have the power in their hands in order to at the best scenarios fix drought problems, irrigation, land distribution, and sharing of resources. But the ‘de facto’ reason they don’t do anything about it is that they are lobbied from inside the Congress at Washington D.C., where lobbyists seek to make politicians pass legislation or stall, halt or stop altogether legislation that goes against their profits.
This imperialistic mechanism seeks to deprive the markets of organic natural food and seeks to establish increased food production only by fixes such as GMO’s and genetically modified foods.
Corporations and institutions such as the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa, The Millennium Challenge, DuPont, Monsanto, Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, among many others have really made this a reality in all their efforts through the political and financial means.
But people around the world aren’t just laying around passively. They’ve shown signs of rebellion against this unjust system that seeks to enslave people through food deprivation and
control. As a result, we seen small-scale improvements on the logistics and distribution of production and goods.
Encouraging Independence in the Global Economy
One reality with the current financial system and capitalism is that they seek to make people dependent on the government and global corporations to survive. They don’t allow people to create the mechanisms to break free and become independent of the current global economy.
Real solutions will not only come through proper irrigation systems, crop management systems or the enhancements to the future of farming and food production mechanisms. There needs to a total transformation of the agricultural industrial complex so that land is distributed properly among the populace of any given country, and ag producers can optimize crop load management. Also, the government has to finance people to move inland so that they can be able to produce and maintain themselves there.
As the world financial problems have evolved, many partnerships among citizens have risen that are peer to peer partnerships for the exchange of goods. If all fails and governments and global corporations do not help humanity as a whole become more self-sufficient and less reliable on their mechanisms of control, people could just break free from their grasp by establishing bartering systems and trading agreements that would allow them to exchange food and goods.
But one thing is certain. This transition will not be easy and the governments and global corporations will not just sit passively by to allow this happen since they have so much at stake in the game. They will fight with teeth and nails in order to maintain what they’ve got, to try to maintain the controls over the food supply to manipulate the masses to their own purposes.
