Breaking the Code…
It has long been known among warmongering nations and empires that it is essential to control food to force the targeted nations or peoples to become compliant and conquerable. Since the end of World War II there has been a movement to centralize and codify rules and regulations regarding food and food supplements for human and even animal consumption. This growing international movement has enveloped, and in some cases, usurped the local, state, and national authority of countries to self-regulate and self-determine food safety. In recent decades these international efforts have become focused not just on food safety, but food and nutritional manipulation under the guise of ensuring healthy food and supplements for respective national consumers. Through treaties and conventions, (often labeled as “voluntary” guidelines), have become de facto mandatory laws through judiciary preference for those parties in litigation that comply and are signatories to such treaties regardless of the merits of the arguments of the conflicting parties.
In short, we witness another Communist / Socialist attempt at collectivization on grander and grander scales; as opposed to the Subsidiarity Principle that laws, regulations, and policies formulated at the local level address the human concerns more adequately, responsively, and justly than any huge and grossly centralized authoritarian body hundreds even thousands of miles away.
Such a case is the Codex Alimentarius, (Latin for Book of Food), which purports to set internationally recognized standards, codes of practice, guidelines and other recommendations relating to foods, food production and food safety. Its is derived from the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus, which was established under the Austrian-Hungarian Empire in 1893 and disbanded with the end of the Age of Empires in World War I. Its texts are developed and maintained by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a body that was established in early November 1961 by the Food and Agriculture Organization, aka FAO of the United Nations, was joined by the World Health Organization aka, WHO in June 1962, and held its first session in Rome in October 1963. The Commission’s alleged goals are to protect the health of consumers and ensure fair practices in the international food trade. The Codex Alimentarius is recognized by the World Trade Organization, aka WTO, as an international reference point for the resolution of disputes concerning food safety and consumer protection.
As of 2012, there were the 186 members of the Codex Alimentarius Commission: 186 member countries and one member organization, the European Union (EU). There were 215 Codex observers: 49 intergovernmental organizations, 150 non-governmental organizations, and 16 United Nations organizations. Clearly, this is the ultimate in collectivization based on its top-down organization and fits hand-in-glove with the UN’s Agenda 21, a so-called blueprint for humanity for the 21st Century. Adopted at the Earth Summit in Brazil by nations hypothetically representing over 98% of the Earth’s population, it is the principal global plan to confront and overcome the economic and ecological problems of the late 20th Century. It provides a comprehensive blueprint for humanity to use to forge its way into the next century by proceeding more gently upon the Earth. As its sweeping programs are implemented world-wide, it will eventually impact on every human activity on our planet. Deep and dramatic changes in human society are proposed by this monumental historic agreement. Understanding those changes is essential to guide us all into the future on our fragile planet.
• Agenda 21 is not a static document
• Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions
• Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society
• Agenda 21 will require active participation by people throughout the world
• Agenda 21 provides a myriad of opportunities
• Agenda 21 does not presume to propose solutions
• Agenda 21 provides a blueprint for action in all areas of human activity
The implications of Agenda 21, although touched on in previous issues of Catholic Rural Solutions, is a topic in itself and will require more attention than can be devoted at this time. Meantime, I urge the readership to investigate this subject themselves.
The Codex Alimentarius covers all foods, whether processed, semi-processed, or raw. In addition to standards for specific foods, the Codex Alimentarius contains general standards covering matters such as food labeling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, and procedures for assessing the safety of foods derived from modern biotechnology. It also contains guidelines for the management of official i.e. governmental import and export inspection and certification systems for foods. Codex Alimentarius also has been interpreted in come countries and regions to include vitamin and mineral supplements and under such interpretation has led to restricting of many supplements, including ephedra and its derivatives and tryptophan. While nominally a voluntary standard increasingly both international and domestic judiciary bodies have been using these standards for critical precedence in courts of law. The local results of which have led to Department of Agriculture and other agency raids on raw milk producer farms and distributors, and EPA raids on so-called misapplied “exotic” pig farmers such as Baker’s Green Acres in the State of Michigan.
So once again we see the “errors of Russia”; this time in the form of global collectivism. More insidiously, however, we see this “food Standard” working toward a global agenda of domination of mankind via a hive-mentality and substitution of the worship of God with a new religion of rabid anthropomorphic-centered environmentalism. You might think of this Codex Alimentarius as just another stone of many in the neo-Tower of Babel. Don’t be fooled, my dear reader… while they present such wonderful images as sustainability, going-green, and other euphemistic terms their ultimate goal is not just to subvert worship of the One True God, but also to decimate the population of humanity through lofty and noble sounding jargon.
Pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the Pope and all the bishops of the world. Though it would seem to be a futile gesture to some, miracles do happen and our Lady has so promise such a miraculous conversion.
