As you start to feel yourself break down when you are confronted with the reality of CAFO's, GM-seed + pesticide devastation (Punjab is being exterminated by pesticides and chemicals) and other such horrors of our pathological food system, I call on the conscience of all world citizens to document these reactions via art. We are in need of a solution and human creativity remains to be one of the last resources that have not been slaughtered, poisoned, commodified, fed needless antibiotics or kept inside a metal pin, waist high in its feces. For those of us without funds, and considering the unemployment rate in the US, there are plenty of people who have spare time. Put aside your job search for say 15 minutes, and focus on this issue. Let the truth emerge. We need to hear your voice. If we do not allow ourselves to freely express ourselves in a creative way, then the game is over. We have all succumbed to the systematic repression and fear that we read in books as teenagers, that we thought was never possible in a country like the United States of America.
I care about all people. I care to know what our country is currently doing to the people of India and all other countries in the world. I want to reverse the damage that my country has done. First, and foremost, things have to change here. We have to stop feeling the despair and hoplessness that pervades our minds. Once you take a few positive actions, you will notice that others feel more confident in doing the same. Look deeply inside and listen to yourself. A good example of my point is my experience last night while I watched Food Inc.: The whistleblower Chicken Farmer, Carole Morison's heartbreaking story made me completely break down in tears. The part that disturbed me the most: the chickens are fed so much and gain so much weight so fast that their legs are not developed enough to support their own weight. I can barely even type this, my hands are getting weak. It just got worse from there, I was feeling the pain of the pigs, I cringed and gripped my face as the cow was scooped up with a machine. And the control center that a bunch of men were sitting in, air-conditioned and systematic, as they fine-tuned the killing machines from their comfortable perches almost made me vomit. This is the ultimate tragedy. I am not willing to be a part of such a pathological system. This is not the world I signed up for. This is not the world, this is not the world, this is a made-up horror world that has embraced the Mechanized Ideation Illness and made it seem normal. This is a pathological world that must be changed.
You see what knowing the truth does? It cripples you with fear. I had almost forgotton the positive part of my message but here it is: I challenge each person to tap into this vast field of pain and come up with one tiny solution. My outlet has always been sending things through the mail, so I am wanting to send a giant postcard to that one whistle-blowing farmer who showed us, the people, what is actually happening. She deserves my support because I heard that her chicken houses were burned to the ground after the movie came out. The people who have compassion, who feel pain, who are unwilling to go along with our current pathological system deserve to be crowned. They are the true celebrities. So, our work is cut out for us. Join us to see how this experiment works out. I call this Creative Consciousness Actions and you can see it all come to life on our Facebook page. Instead of playing Farmville, why not play our game called, LET'S SEE IF WE CAN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
The Punjab situation in India is also despicable. Their land and life is currently being wiped out due to pesticides, chemicals and man-made problems. 70% of the animals are sterile. Guess what? We, the US, are the main suppliers of these deadly chemicals. In my horror and anger about finding the truth, I sent a giant postcard to the women's action group of Punjab, through the Kheti Virasat Mission, which is attempting to restore organic farming to their people. This has all been documented in a video on my Youtube channel: Stellabelle so that it may reach a wider audience.
If you have made it this far, then I will give you one last thing to think about and this fact alone is the primary reason I decided to create a Facebook page: Most of the corn (80%-90%) that is grown in the United States has been genetically engineered to produce it's own pesticide. It's called BT corn. Look it up on google. I have asked many people if they knew about this and the ones who did not know, seemed visibly disturbed. You have the information, now what are we going to do with it? It's up to you.
