crops especially corn, cotton, and soy because they produce so much more than regular crops.
I've read The Secret Life of Plants
, which to me is a crucial book to understand what is really going on here. I challenge that biological
agriculture has lower yields. What is happening is agriculture has gone lazy and into corporate and industrialized models, which manage high yields of
a certain produce, but at the cost of poisoning the earth with pesticides and reducing the goodness of the foods with GM.
Organic agriculture, done right, produces higher overall yields, as you have multiple crops intertwined with a sistemic agriculture and you also have
healthier livestock fed off the biomatter humans don't eat. It's sistemic and far more sophisticated that this crap that passes off as high
technology. Add in a one in two thirds area crop rotation and the system is totally renewable, as even the weeds have a place, remineralizig the soil
for another two years of good agriculture.
Organic agriculture is more abundant, healthier and more stimulating. What it is not is controllable by central forms of government or even directly
taxable, which is why parasitic elites have always targeted the good people of the earth's ability to feed themselves.
Seriously, read The Secret Life of Plants
, it is one of the most important books ever written and will change people's outlook to what
agriculture, and indeed life, really is. Then they will realise just how big a sin GM can be when it breaks the unwritten rules of nature. Nature will
always survive of course, because at a point it is just information in dna and self mutating, so if we destroy one biosphere in 50 million years we
will have another likely different one. But we will pay with our species for destroying the biosphere that created us.
And technocratic transhumanism won't save anyone, people are fools if they go down that route.
