Food Sovereignty in Mexico and the United States - Part III  April 10, 2017 – 10:32 pm

Moderator’s Note: I am continuing with the posting of a research report on the four main challenges facing food sovereignty movements in Mexico and the United States. This excellent report was prepared by one of my most brilliant students for a seminar on food sovereignty that I taught in 2011 at the University of Washington. As you read this four-part series, you will understand why I have so much respect and admiration for this young undergraduate by the name of Mollie Tarte.  This is Part III of IV and focuses on the second challenge – the imposition of the Republic of Property. Tarte explains: “Essentially, the republic of property exists when the political and the economic (as defined by property) are essentially one in the same, and that they control together the functioning of society and those who exist within it.” 

  I have edited the essay for length and adjusted some of Mollie’s writing style to fit in with the approach of this blog. The images and graphics are my sole responsibility. Enjoy the reading; this is engaged writing and an important contribution to the discourse on food autonomy by a very smart and insightful critical thinker.

How Insidious and Bizarre can it get?

The Pharmaceutical Industry, one of the largest, richest and most influential, has become so powerful and dominating that its not only using our own government and public funding for its commercial purposes, but has been steadily taking its propaganda to extreme lengths. Now this:
They've already managed to get the FDA to, literally, legally proclaim drugs to be the ONLY "cures" possible, by definition. And now, along with the int'l "Codex Alimentarium" initiative, they're using the same propagandistic, Orwelian "Double Speak" to redefine vitamins and nutrition as "toxins" and "drugs" . . . so that they can control (patent, sell, etc.) use our very need to eat.
This is beyond ridiculous. Seriously beyond.

Mother of slain Florida teenager seeks trademarks
Reuters – 19 hrs ago
MIAMI (Reuters) - The mother of the Florida teenager shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer, in a case with racial overtones that has resonated across the United States, is seeking trademark rights to slogans based on his name.
Sybrina Fulton, the mother of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, filed the tr... shot Martin, who was unarmed, is still open to dispute. But his attorney has said he acted in self-defense.
Zimmerman has not been arrested. Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law, which broadened the legal definition of self-defense when it was passed in 2005, provides people with immunity from detention or arrest if they use deadly force in their own defense without clear evidence of malice.

But definition

"people who know what they're talking about" is not something that you have a patent on. Surprisingly, I believe he is totally hip to the things that are usually bantered about and just wants to toss things up.
I, for one, DO NOT like the usual boring stuff about pets that usually involve the same 1/2 dozen or so "know it alls" lecturing others.
Also, what is a troll to you is not ne... a troll to someone else.
My definition of a troll is someone who doesn't think for themselves and simply "parrots" all the same stuff about speuter and rescue, etc.....
Independent thinkers are the most valuable asset a message board has.
Unfortunately, the level of real nuance and intellectual curiosity is low on this board so power struggles seem to be the tender of the day.

Here maybe this will be of help

Andrew Wakefield, who originally suggested that MMR caused autism, was being paid by personal injury lawyers and had a patent on a monovalent measles vaccine. He stood to benefit financially if people believed that vaccines cause autism. He was found guilty of gross misconduct and lost his medical license.
