Wise Use ideology
engineered the passage of laws in at least 13 states making it a crime to
photograph industrial factory farm animals!
animals such as
cattle, pigs and chickens,
live in unnatural and cruel conditions, which do not allow them to live the way
farmers treat them as commodities rather than living, breathing, sentient
beings that feel pain and suffer, just as we do.
It's time to make
changes, not just because of the harm to our health and
environment but because having
respect for all beings will help create a more humane world." - Valerie Belt
"If you wanted to create global pandemics, you'd build as many of
these factory farms as possible.
That's why the development of swine
flu isn't a surprise to those in the public health community.
2003, the American Public Health Association - the oldest and largest in world
- called for a moratorium of factory farming because they saw something like
this would happen.
It may take something as serious as a pandemic to
make us realize the real cost of factory farming." - Dr. Michael
The increased use of antibiotics in animal production has gone
hand-in-hand with the development of factory farms - industrial-style livestock
Thousands of animals are crammed into the unhygienic,
crowded quarters of a typical industrial-style livestock operation, and
antibiotics are dispensed constantly through the animals' feed.
Twenty-five million pounds of
are fed to livestock in the US annually - eight times more than the amount used
as human medicine.
Six of the 17 classes of antibiotics used to promote
growth in animals are also used to treat diseases in humans.
University study showed that antibiotic-resistant genes found in bacteria
infecting humans were identical to some of the same bacteria infecting animals.
The Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production recommended:
"Ban the non-therapeutic use of antimicrobials in food animal
production to reduce the risk of antimicrobial résistance to medically
important antibiotics and other microbials."
One million farms house 57 million pigs.
the nation's largest pig farm, a North Carolina factory farm, an aggressive
H3N2 virus of a never-before-described triple hybrid of three viruses - a human
virus, a pig virus and a bird virus - was discovered.
2001 80,000 farms house 57 million pigs.
2009 Swine flu pandemic starts at a Smithfield Foods - the
world's largest pork
packer and hog producer - massive hog-raising operation in Perote, Mexico,
in the state of Vera Cruz.
A Smithfield subsidiary, Granjas Carrol,
raises 950,000 hogs per year.
Residents of Perote believed the outbreak
had been caused by contamination from pig breeding farms located in the area
which polluted the atmosphere and local water bodies and in turn led to the
A municipal health official stated that preliminary
investigations indicated that the disease vector was a type of fly that
reproduces in pig waste and that the outbreak was linked tothe global
industrial pig farms.
According to residents the
fecal waste produced by
Granjas Carrol isn't adequately treated.
Swarms of flies hovering
around waste lagoons transfer respiratory ailments.
Mexican health agency Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social has
acknowledged that the original carrier for the flu could be the "clouds of
flies" that multiply in the Smithfield subsidiary's manure lagoons.
Gibbs, 75, who collaborated on research that led to the development of
Roche Holding AG's Tamiflu drug, said in an
interview that he intends to publish a report suggesting the new strain may
have accidentally evolved in eggs scientists use to grow viruses and drugmakers
use to make vaccines.
Gibbs said he came to his conclusion as part of
an effort to trace the virus's origins by analyzing its genetic blueprint." -

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
