The modern era: an age of technological marvels, space exploration, and digital wonders. Yet, as we bask in this glow of progress, a menace is growing in our midst. An overshadowing dilemma that is fast becoming the bleak hallmark of our generation – the exponential rise in global hunger.
Enter the United Nations’ recent SOFI report, which reveals that this sinister monster is growing fatter with each passing day. Before the chaos of the covid-19 episode unfurled its tentacles, before the theater of 2020’s lockdowns, and the ensuing mayhem of widespread panic, street chaos, and an alarming upswing in crime, 613 million souls were already grappling with the claws of hunger.
Now, factor in just three years of unchecked anarchy, economic upheavals, and suspicious financial operations, and the number swells by an astounding 122 million. By 2022, this ominous tide had swept between 691 to 783 million people into its dark embrace, as global food prices shot up with alarming alacrity.
In our cozy western enclaves, the reassuring hum of grocery stores and bustling markets creates an illusion of permanence. But behind the scenes, resources are being stretched to their breaking points. And when the mechanisms of global food production – the farms, the ranches, the fisheries – are systematically stifled, the horrific visage of inflation emerges from the shadows.
The official narrative?
A seemingly manageable 8% inflation.
Yet, anyone with an eye on their grocery bills can spot the charade. It’s no secret that prices have surged by 50% or more since 2020. And in some cases, they’ve doubled! This isn’t a mere cyclical phenomenon. This is a grotesque spectacle where unseen forces tamper with our very environment.
Experiments with weather, hidden agendas to bring about famines, and targeted strikes on livestock, fertilizers, and energy sources – these are not the ravings of a madman. They’re the cold, hard facts of today’s world.
Let’s throw more chilling statistics into the mix: A colossal 30% of the global populace, translating to 2.4 billion individuals, grapple with inconsistent food access. An unthinkable 900 million are teetering on the brink of “severe food insecurity.” Picture this: In 2022 alone, 148 million children, each with dreams, hopes, and potential, found their futures stunted due to malnutrition.
Every disaster, they say, has its profiteers. The shadowy puppeteers of our world are leaving no stone unturned to exploit this food crisis. Their gaze is set on creating genetically modified crops, engineered to replicate animal proteins. Lab-grown synthetic meats are now on their agenda.
Our cherished farms, those symbols of nature’s bounty, are being destroyed under the smokescreen of ‘environmental protection.‘ Instead, a grotesque future looms, with mass-produced insects and experimental concoctions under the guise of ‘vaccination‘ becoming the new normal.
The ultimatum is clear: Conform or starve.
This isn’t fiction. This is our unsettling reality.
The cataclysms of the past three years aren’t just historical footnotes; they’re harbingers of what’s to come.
The battle lines are drawn.
Growing our own food and safeguarding long-term food supplies have transitioned from leisurely pursuits to urgent imperatives.
The looming conflict, threatening our very sustenance, is in its nascent stages.
As global food supplies continue to unravel, and chaos looms ever larger, it is incumbent upon us to stay informed, vigilant, and prepared.
For in knowledge and preparation, lies our hope and resilience.
