Bug Farmers and Fly Factories are the Future; because the Oligarchs destroyed antibiotics and meat production at the same time

A second riposte to Firepower’s critique of the Mindweapon approach.

Namely, that focusing on the technology and techniques of sustainable and high yield per unit of energy input food production is somehow “going backwards” or not doing what it takes to do real, effective politics.

Firepower advocates using one’s land to train snipers, and focus on weapons manufacturing, because, according to him, the next war is just like the last war — all hot lead and cold steel. And that this is the ONLY kind of real war that there is. Dumbing down Mindwar against us as children is not war. Corn/wheat/soybeans diets for the low information masses is not a form of war. Oh no, of course not! It’s just he way things happened. They feed people packaged food that destroys their gut and their brain, and then Michelle Obama says, “I wish you wouldn’t eat so much packaged food!” Well duh, then put out different food! The low information voters eat what you put in front of them.

Firepower wants us to focus on hot lead and cold steel, and training for assassination, even though this country is already packed to the gills with firearms enthusiasts and ex-military who don’t necessarily like the government. The Oathkeepers and Sovereign Citizens got that covered. I am neither, but I’m glad those rebels exist.

I believe that I have extrapolated a new possible future; a future where the ruling oligarchs mess things up so bad that they lose control, and our biggest challenge is basic survival. A collapse of complexity, aka The Long Emergency.

You can accuse me of yearning for a Deus Ex Machina in this. But if it’s even remotely possible, then proactively adapting to it while we have technology and knowledge available to us is not a waste of time.

It looks like the oligarchs who turned farming into an industrial rather than biological enterprise have destroyed the future of mass scale meat production and anti-biotics in one fell swoop.

Antibiotics revolutionized medicine in the 1940s, saving millions of lives over the last 70 years. But during that time bacteria have evolved to become resistant to certain antibiotics. The more antibiotics we use, the quicker resistance builds up. This has deadly repercussions.

In the report, “ Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States, 2013,” the CDC estimates (conservatively) that 2 million people in the U.S. get antibiotic-resistant infections, and 23,000 die from them every year.

In addition to the loss of life, it’s also costly.

“In most cases, antibiotic-resistant infections require prolonged and/or costlier treatments, extend hospital stays, necessitate additional doctor visits and healthcare use, and result in greater disability and death compared with infections that are easily treatable with antibiotics,” the report states. “Estimates vary but have ranged as high as $20 billion in excess direct healthcare costs, with additional costs to society for lost productivity as high as $35 billion a year (2008 dollars).”

One of the biggest culprits is our overuse and misuse of antibiotics in medicine. “Research has shown that as much as 50% of the time, antibiotics are prescribed when they are not needed or they are misused (for example, a patient is given the wrong dose),” the report says. “This not only fails to help patients; it might cause harm. This inappropriate use of antibiotics unnecessarily promotes antibiotic resistance. Antibiotics are a limited resource. The more that antibiotics are used today, the less likely they will still be effective in the future.”

But there’s another culprit—our feedlot system of raising animals for meat and dairy in “concentrated animal feeding operations” (CAFOs).

“Antibiotics are also commonly used in food animals to prevent, control, and treat disease, and to promote the growth of food-producing animals,” says the report.

The report states unequivocally: “The use of antibiotics for promoting growth is not necessary, and the practice should be phased out.”

So we navigate between Scylla and Charybdis. On the left, we see the possible end of the antibiotic era, and a return to a time when people would die of an urinary tract infection, or need to get a limb cut off if it got a staph infection that is resistant to all antibiotics, even the magic bullets like Cipro.

On the right, we see the possibility that meat farms will be forced to end the use of antibiotics in meat production. They could very well have antibiotic resistant outbreaks in the Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO).

In CAFOs, the thousands of animals are held in close quarters, conditions which are very conducive to spread of bacterial and viral disease. I don’t know how they control viral diseases, but they control bacterial infection by keeping the all the animals on antibiotics, all the time. Any microbiologist knows that this is the perfect condition for evolving antibiotic resistant supergerms. The US Government that allows this knows this. Two possibilities:

1. Short sighted incompetence.

2. They want to end the age of antibiotics and cull billions.

I think it’s #1.

The end of the age of antibiotics sounds scarier than the end of mass meat production. But losing animal protein is also a horror. Have you ever met a sane vegan? Neither have I.

We need animal protein to lubricate our neurons. Without animal protein we become stupid and crazy.

Children who don’t eat animal protein grow up physically and mentally stunted.

Meat, however, is replaceable by chicken eggs. One can live on eggs as the sole source of animal protein. Insect larvae is also a source of animal protein. Or the chickens can eat the farm raised larvae (among other things) and give you eggs, if you don’t want to eat BSF maggots with every meal. The feedstock of Black Soldier Flies is vegetable compost. Or just vegetables, if you produce a huge surplus and want to convert some of it into protein. By the way, I just ordered a biopod. I’m going to raise BSF and trade them for eggs instead of cash to the person we buy eggs from.

The Mindweapon theory is that the Powers that Be TPTB are incompetent and are going to lose control over the economy and therefore the culture. They will lose this control because the Corn Syrup Cornucopia is failing and will fail comprehensively. We will know that it failed comprehensively when food is expensive and animal protein is considered a luxury.

The worst nightmare of TPTB is White Americans not marching to the feedlots for their corn syrup slops, but instead going feral and producing for themselves and trading among themselves. Such people have no incentive to go along with tbhe Cultural Marxist agenda whatsoever. It was only the control of “prosperity” and corn syrup that so empowered the baggy eyed Bolsheviks — their control of the Middle American bread basket and Jordie military heroes.

They are on the brink of losing control of both. Two data points:

1. They failed to attack Syria (so far). Richard Spencer thinks that the new, multicultural Obama’s America of non-whites and non-white immigrants means a country that doesn’t have the will to go to war. An “unpatriotic” country, if you will. To a 1980’s white conservative who took being White for granted, this is the worst nightmare. To a 2013 White nationalist, this is the defeat of the neocon faction of Jewish Cultural Marxism. Conservatism is likely to be retaken by real conservatives — racial conservatives.

2. The vast and exponentially growing underground trade in food, which will only grow stronger as the Corn Syrup Cornucopia grows weaker.

This is the war that is going on, and we are turning the tide. Join us.

    FP and RYU also believe that in a combat situation the body breaks before the mind!! These two pretend to know it all, but in reality have no experience with militarization, it would be very dangerous for anyone to heed the advice of these two.

    • The online militia crowd are either actual enemies attempting to smear the movement, or, most likely, Internet Tough Guys fantasizing about Red Dawn.

      It’s lame, at best.

      Real men in the real gun culture don’t talk like that.

      The idea of armed resistance against the government is so absurd at this point in history that anyone proposing it is a fed or a wanker (usually, just a wanker.) It shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the current situation.

        It is lame. The reason I engaged the debate with Firepower is because I am wary of doing things that have a low ROI. I want to put my time and energies into the best possible things. But practicing being a long range sniper is not even a candidate. There’s plenty of other people doing that stuff anyway. Bloggers have no business getting involved in anything like that.

        Maybe becoming a computer hacker, which he also said, is worth it. I’m not a hacker, but I could certainly see providing financial support to a young Sith mindweapon who is a hacker.

      • FP is right about one thing: I am a hothead and a loudmouth. That’s why I write a comedy blog.

        At least I *know* that I’m writing comedy.

    You’ve got it. Keep pushing. To hell with FP and the horse he rode in on.

  4. RobRoySimmons says:

    The 2013 white is the proto social critic who is learning to take the moral high ground and then hurl lightning bolts of rhetoric at the failed society.

    FP was correct, don’t be an effin peasant. But he also basically dug up the playbook from “White Power” and digging up old playbooks is Contard 101.

    “Antibiotics revolutionized medicine in the 1940s, saving millions of lives over the last 70 years”
    “The end of the age of antibiotics sounds scarier than the end of mass meat production.”

    This is a fear-based way of life. OMFG! No antibiotics!

    “Saving” those lives for what…reproducing your sickly inferior self. The development of antibiotics (and high tech medicine generally) is the single worst thing that’s happened to the entire human species. We produced geniuses and productive humans for eons because the most inferior were taken by infectious diseases, either in childhood or later, as in the Plague. This is Nature’s way. Now, the most sickly people imaginable, with barely enough energy to get out of bed, can manage, thanks to Modern Medicine and your beloved antibiotics, to pull themselves together to have sex and create someone even worse than themselves. That is why we are in this pile of schitt.

    If you are mushed into little pieces by a socalled “accident”, if you are covered with 3-rd degree burns, why should you be revived? For what purpose? So that obamacare or various other socialized sickness care systems in various parts of the world can spend a million bucks of taxpayers’ cash propping you up for the rest of your “life”? Just so your family won’t weep & wail over your death, which they’ll have to ultimately do down the line anyway?

    No one in my household has had antibiotics, including children. My parents and grandparents and their ancestors never had any, either. No, that’s not correct: About 35 years ago I had a urinary tract infection. I took antibiotics and the infection kept coming back. I changed my diet drastically (no alcohol, red meat and especially no sweets) and I haven’t had one since. If you are going to die from a UTI, it’s your time.

    • Anon says:

      We live a pretty disease free life these days, thanks to modern medicine and understanding of thing like germ theory, and that isn’t a bad thing. Diseases don’t target exclusively stupid people, though stupid people do tend to find themselves at risk of disease and many other problems. When I was very young I had an ear infection, and the first round of antibiotics treatments did not work, much the same way as your treatment didn’t either, but as I’m told a doctor eventually relented with the newer stuff and my problem immediately cleared up. I’m not sure what the implications of that would have been had such a treatment not been available, and I won’t fault the doctor for protecting the efficacy of said treatment, but I am glad that that is one more thing I likely won’t have to worry about.

      If it all collapses we’ll come out ahead, but the world will be a worse place. I for one hope that we can preserve some of what our forefathers have given us.

        Exactly. Remember that, if things are miserable. The end result is that we will come out ahead. Multiculti will be over. Political correctness and liberalism and telescopic charity and grown white men who spend hours watching blacks chase balls around — these things will be considered a relic of a period of historical madness.

        I think we’ll preserve plenty of knowledge. It won’t be like a return to the past because we were very naive in the past. We may live in ways that echo the 19th century, but we’ll have knowledge of microbiology, engineering, physics, and a practical outlook on life.

        I have studied a bit about the history of farming, just as an example. The settlers in the 1600’s and 1700’s would plough and dig up stones and build these endless stone walls for which New England is famous. They were trying to do grassland farming on sandy, rocky geology. Inefficient. They probably starved to death a lot, and were just poorer and struggled harder, because of doing an inappropriate method of farming and inappropriate crops. They grew wheat and are alleged to have gotten ergot poisoning because this region is too moist to grow wheat, and ergot poisoning is like tripping on acid, and this may have contributed to the Salem witch hunts.

        Also I asked the professor if the New England farmers knew enough to throw their ashes from their fires on their soil and he said he didn’t know of them doing that. Had they done that one thing, they’d have had much much better yields. But they didn’t know that New England was acidic because more rain mean the calcium carbonates leached out of the soil over geological time moreso than they did in the grasslands which have much less rain. So in the temperate rainforest climate like New England, you need to constantly add calcium, and wood ashes make a very good calcium amendment.

        Also leaves and human shit and animal shit should have been used all together to make organic matter for soil. They probably amended with animal manure, but they didn’t use leaves.

        Their mentality was “fuck the earth” (fuck originally meant to plough)

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuck#Older_etymology

        Yet another possible etymology is from the Old High German word pfluog, meaning “to plow, as in a field.” This is supported in part by a book by Carl Jung, Psychology of the Unconscious: A Study of the Transformations and Symbolisms of the Libido, in which he discusses the “primitive play of words” and the phallic representation of the plough, including its appearance on a vase found in an archaeological dig near Florence, Italy, which depicts six erect-penised men carrying a plow.

        So they used lots of calories in an epic battle with rocks and weeds, because farming was analogous to fucking.

        What they needed to do was gather and cover, and gather and cover some more. Leaves, manure, wood ashes. Cover the fields with leaves and then put the stronger stuff on top to hold the leaves down. Let it sit for the season. Weeds are gone, rocks don’t matter. Roots can go around rocks.

        If I went back to 1620 to the Mayflower settlers at Plymouth I could have showed them a much better agriculture and animal husbandry.

        That’s just one small way how the future is going to be different than the past. We really did figure out a lot of awesome stuff in the 20th and 21st centuries.
