“We Would Be A Much Healthier Culture if the Government Had Never Told Us How To…”

Farmer Joel Salatin is talking about food above, but the same could be said about nearly everything the government gets its hands on. Anytime a government gets involved they create a network filled with cronies. Whether it’s the military, media, prison, marriage, health care, agriculture and food or climate once the cronies get involved everything gets corrupted for big money. Most of the ultra wealthy are getting richer for their relationship with government, not from a free market. Just look at Warren Buffet making money hand over fist but he and his companies have been a leading beneficiary of government largesse. You can look at any government complex and see Buffet’s partners are living large on government contracts, bailouts, loans, grants, etc.

Don’t believe anything they say about war, health care, diet, climate, criminal laws or entertainment, it’s all propaganda that enriches the cronies and centrally consolidates power so it can further its own ability to perpetuate the elitist system.
