• “my post wasn't at all about downplaying this very obvious connection between inhumane treatment of animals/factory farming and the such outcomes of this as mutating pathogens. i am asking what geo-political ambitions can possibly be served by something like this well timed swine flu panic. i have pointed out documents which shows real goals of people in power and showed how the timing of this is suspicious - something which a lot of people aren't really addressing.”
Maybe this is finally a recognition that the “geo-political ambitions” of the few are out of balance with the needs of the many. The article says: “Experts have been warning for years that the rise of large-scale factory farms in North America has created the perfect breeding grounds for the emergence and spread of new highly-virulent strains of influenza.” Swine Flu is not the first and it will not be the last consequence of this highly unnatural choice of producing food. Remember Oprah’s court battle with the meat industry in North America? And, didn’t they put that uppity gal in her place? Sometimes it takes an up close and personal encounter with the consequences of our choices to get us to select/choose a different course/source. The people of La Gloria and California have the benefit of such close encounters. Those further removed from their food source will need a few more food contamination outbreaks or maybe this most recent influenza scare to adjust their view.
• “no, not at all if in FACT it is not twisted once more to benefit the federal/corporate monolith which exists - the question begs to be asked, what is the difference between government/federal power and private corporate power at this point? these two have been wedded at the hip for quite some time and since bush II - the military-industrial-security-banking-(append monopoly here) complex has only been bolstered incredibly.”
The question of who benefits from the change or modification will depend on magnitude of the corrective force/energy, which, like the Sun, does not discriminate between the Monopoly nor the Masses.
