In 1977, a book was published under the title "Food First", by Frances Moore Lappé and Joseph Collins.

In the introduction, they talk about the guilt being imposed by TPTB and the "Elites" about world hunger.

They quote, amongst others, C.W. Cook, then honorary president of General Food saying; that if " we have to fight... in a world more populated or hungered, it is an utopia to try feeding adequately the millions of low waged americans."

Another, a member of the Rockefeller foundation compared the world population growth to cancer!

Nixon even had this to say; "... what is scary is that the poor reproduce twice as fast as the rich."

Lester Brown was waving the specter of fear by stating; "New symptoms of the weakening of the ecological system at the agriculture level appear almost daily...", continuing by saying that a choice would have to be made: eat or live well...


It is a very informative, and surprisingly actual book.

In their search to write the book, the authors found out that every country could sustain its own population. What was (is) needed was (is) a better access to production and a better access to distribution.

In the first part of the book, they answer the question: is there enough land to feed everyone? The answer is yes.
They explain how many countries grow food and sell it in order to... buy food... if they can, that is. Because the idea is to cause rarity in order to create astronomical profits.
( In Canada, for example, milk producers have to throw on the ground ALL the milk that was produced in excess so prices don't go down!!! The same is probably true for every country producing milk... )

A study made in 1960 showed that farmers possessing up to 13 acres of land used about 66% of it to produce food, while the big companies that possessed more than 70% of all the available land for cultivation used only 6% to produce food...
You think it was 50 years ago and that it is not relevant?

The authors show that this trend began nearly 250 years ago, during colonialism. And is still going on.

So, for one part, the misuse of the land is more to blame than the lack of it for the world hunger.

Another point is that when it is time to sell, prices fall, so farmers barely make, if at all. Then they have to buy food and do not have the money to do so. Because the interests rates imposed are too big, when trying to invest in newer, better equipment.

They talk how orange juice makers, when comes the time to buy oranges, will pay a misery if it has any marks on the skin of the fruit. They are said to be used to make juices, hence the lowest prices... Nowadays, if you pay attention, oranges are tainted. You might chance on a half tainted one sometimes.

They also talk about the use of pesticides and insecticides and the harm it is doing, in a spiral going up and requiring more and more of those products. The problem, when using those products, is that if you kill a specie that feeds, let's say on the tip of the leaves of the plant, you will invite one that might be eating the body of the plant... or the fruit it grows...


While reading this book, I discovered what I think is the reason the USA began the war against Viet-Nam. At the beginning of the 60's, the country announced it was now totally autonomous concerning food production. The country could feed everyone, and sell the surplus...
What happened? The USA entered a war that was between France and Indochine, claiming Viet-Nam was a communist country dangerous for the well being of the Free world...
What was used for this war? Well, there is destructive napalm, and the most infamous agent orange, a mix of every insecticides and pesticides then known!

So, was it for political ideologies or for an economical loss that war was made?...


It is a very big book, very deserving to be read, and only the first 80 pages served for reference for this OP. The book has more than 550 pages... ( At least, the French version, which is the one I possess.

I want to clearly say that this thread IS NOT one against american interests. It is about the engineering of the world hunger by the "Elites".

It is a war that has been launched against humanity, long ago, and we don't even know it yet...


The book was published by Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, in 1977. A must if you think there are conspiracies against humanity. One that is tangible, and down to earth.

I always thought that the US government subsidized farmers who produced non "cash crops". I'm also fairly certain that the small family farmers get around the high cost of farming equipment by sharing the cost of equipment (combines etc.) and renting them out to cover the expenses.

Thanks for your reply.

Well, if the farmers need to be subsidized, it does mean they are not making any profits. And renting farming equipments for the long term must be so high a price, in the end, that it will do the same; bankrupt them.

So the big ones can make bigger profits...

I keep reading how farmers are now forced to close because they can't meet their payments.

But you should know the game is to pretend it is naturally occurring and that nothing can be done about this all. So you wait for "them" to find the solutions... And part of the illusion is to maintain small farms; it is politically important, today, to do this. Well, it was recently, anyway...
