Global Regeneration Strategy relating to Agricultural Labour

In the UK we are worrying about how we are going to get our fruit and vegetables picked as we exit the European Union:

They say after Brexit there’ll be food rotting in the fields. It’s already started

Yes, that is entirely accurate. In Cornwall we are having big problems attracting labour already and we are not out the EU yet.

I have been thinking about all the challenges we are going to face as we become global and move away from being globalist. I explained in an earlier thread what I believed the stark difference between the two to be. This is surely one of the challenges, a big and very important one. This work is so seasonal and it relies on labour that is very short term. Most fruit and vegetable picking is done in a matter of weeks generally and that is the only labour that the farmer can offer. It is intensive. It needs a lot of people quickly for a short time.

I have a very clever UNIVERSAL answer to this. It could not only help with Britain's problem, but with everyone's problem. My idea comes from two sources. It comes from the Israel Kibbutz idea and the clever way my niece has been able to explore the world. The Israeli Kibbutz is:

A kibbutz (Hebrew: קִבּוּץ‬ / קיבוץ‬, lit. "gathering, clustering"; regular plural kibbutzim קִבּוּצִים‬ / קיבוצים‬) is a collective community in Israel that was traditionally based on agriculture. The first kibbutz, established in 1909, was Degania.[1] Today, farming has been partly supplanted by other economic branches, including industrial plants and high-tech enterprises.[2] Kibbutzim began as utopian communities, a combination of socialism and Zionism.[3] In recent decades, some kibbutzim have been privatized and changes have been made in the communal lifestyle. A member of a kibbutz is called a kibbutznik (Hebrew: קִבּוּצְנִיק‬ / קיבוצניק‬; plural kibbutznikim or kibbutzniks). In 2010, there were 270 kibbutzim in Israel. Their factories and farms account for 9% of Israel's industrial output, worth US$8 billion, and 40% of its agricultural output, worth over $1.7 billion.[4] Some kibbutzim had also developed substantial high-tech and military industries. For example, in 2010, Kibbutz Sasa, containing some 200 members, generated $850 million in annual revenue from its military-plastics industry.[5]

Put that together with what my niece does: She has managed to go to many places in the world by doing casual and seasonal short term labour. I don't want to get too complicated about this as it will lose its point, but there is much to explore here as an idea. Cornwall could do this. America could do this. Australia could do this (Australia already does).

THINK of the possibilites: Young people being able to meet from all over the earth, travelling all over the earth to work with nature. Where farms are country living is, so many great and healthy things to do. It does not require too much conformity. It is short term. Do not trreat them as slaves. Give them some cash and a roof. Give them some leisure opportunities like mountain biking, horseback riding, et c. Imagine girls and guys from the ghettos having the freedom to do that and the experience of it?

These young people would be educated by each other in such a very diverse way. It would break down so many barriers. It would solve so many short term labour problems for the farmers. It would grow into a great networking thing very quickly. It would teach the world each others language (metaphorically and literally). It would also encourage the countryside to gt a bit more compettitve in terms of looking good and an interesting place that young people might want to come and see and work in. The culture in the countryside is dying and the young are all leaving. This would at least bring them back some of the time says the Pied Pier of Hamelin.

Do you see the genius of this? This is the kind of PEOPLE TRAFFICKING that really does benefit everybody and it could be totally legit' and BEAUTIFUL.

This is how you REJUVENATE. This would make a global world work better than a globalist world. One exploits and destroys and the other generates and evolves.

It is crazy that I have to share this idea here with just you few out there friends on ATS. I wish I could get an audience with the lumberjacks with the contacts. I have so many ideas. I ooze them, lol

Well I share it with you guys and if there is anyone who can use this idea please do. I am in it to get the world healed in a very REAL WAY that can benefit EVERYBODY.

See how we could turn all this around? Once we started the roll on effect would pick up momentum. My idea is not socialist. It is a way that soft inclusive capitalism can still work globally.

You could still have home then and not have to be an economic migrant. You could be a global trekker and traveller, a new age citizen with the freedom of the globe at least while you are young.

Imagine the networking that agriculture could develop. The Mexican would only have to visit instead of staying. They could go home with all the stories they had learned from their friends (and some cash saved, too). Then they could go some place else to mix with yet other nations.

Instead of having the young and undecided dragging their heels and being an economic burden they could have the freedom of global nature. That is turning a problem into an asset; Mr Rothschild knows all about that. This labour is not something older people can do physically. They can't move around the same at short notice, either. What a strategy; brought to you by Kibbutz Israel and my niece Elle.

There are so many places as beautiful as Cornwall. There is so much natural beauty here you would not believe. All over the UK there is. All over America and Mexico there is. All over Israel and Lebanon there is. Where are you guys' heads at?

This is at the bottom of my uncle's field, lol:

This is my friend Jawara, Peter Tosh's son, in France. He is like hard core Boston Boy and look how he turns to guava jelly before nature. That is because he is a good man who had to live in a bad mon's world. Look how he responds. It makes me so sad when I see this and to know that he was so savagely beaten back in the States into a coma he has still not come out of. I give you a way to address the issue. It can turn a problem into an asset. If you let the children do some nature, do some labour, smoke some ***** and have a few barn parties, sharing their energy you got a good thing going, a real good thing going.


Instead of having to be THIS...

Bet they'll grow fewer crops next year eh?

Perhaps when big business is out of the picture humanity may be able to resume a semblance of self sufficiency. When the monetary system, that decides the value of your goods FOR you (and is there to vacuum them from your hands), is no longer the metric.

That's what Jim Morrison meant when he sang "Let your children play". We can have fun while we live and work, all of us, even people from the ghettos. The ideas they would get from their travels would actually begin to dissolve the ghetto. The cities are not so needed as the New Age of tamed "IT" and even AI begin to bite. The High Street decline is a total symptom. Perhaps we are to return to the countryside. The only reason we left it was because of the Industrial Revolution. May be now it is another Revolution.

People have alays been like this, chopping and changing, but without the opportunities that global communication can bring. I wish you could see what I am seeing, but instead people are too narrowly focussed on their problems, their half empty cup instead of half full one.

Insanity prevails, wish it could be hay bales and not prison bails.

I don’t get it......

You just had a thread not two days ago claiming how you support BREXIT , now you don’t?

You got back and forth so much it’s hard to understand where you’re coming from or what your aim is.......

With any change there’s going to be adaptation.....

I don’t know about you but I’m for what the people voted....
