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. Today, farming has been partly supplanted by other economic branches, including industrial plants and high-tech enterprises. Kibbutzim
began as utopian communities, a combination of socialism and Zionism. 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. 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
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
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
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
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?
