[Originally published May 15, 2013] Have you ever read about a survival scenario where a kidnapping victim, a forgotten prisoner, or lost hiker was forced to choke down insects in order to survive? Did it sound repulsive? Demeaning? Even sub-human?
Well, welcome to your life if the United Nations has anything to do with it. Our “friends” at the United Nations have released a report that promises a solution to world hunger:
Edible insects: Future prospects for food and feed security.
According to an article about the U.N. report , “Fight World Hunger by Eating Bugs, Urges the U.N.”, that appeared on Time.com, the UN is:
…asking us to consider how underutilized insects are as potential food for livestock, or the ways insect consumption could benefit the environment. The original report notes that insects’ feed conversion rate is fairly high (we’d get more for less, in other words), they could be raised on “organic side-streams” like human/animal waste, they emit fewer greenhouse gases and ammonia than animals like cattle and pigs, and they need much less water than the latter.”
If you needed more evidence that the “elite” and those in charge at the UN think of the rest of us as somewhat lesser beings, this is it. Do you think that Bill and Melinda Gates will be sending their housekeeper to the market to pick up a basket of fresh caterpillars for dinner? Will baked beetles be on the menu at the Rothschild estate? Will the Obama children have bug salad sandwiches in their lunch boxes when they go to school?

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization touts another environmental benefit of “farming” insects – they eat poop.
Aside from their nutritional value, farming insects could considerably benefit the environment. According to the FAO, insects emit fewer greenhouse gases and need less land or water than cattle when farmed.
As cold-blooded creatures they are “very efficient” in converting feed to protein, needing 12 times less feed than cattle in order to produce the same amount. They also feed on human and animal waste, and can transform this into protein. (source)
This suggestion that everyday people be reduced to consuming insects that are fed excrement is part of the hijacked green movement, cloaked under the guise of “sustainable development”. World leaders and fake environmental groups are doctoring science and conveying propaganda through media and the school systems. The development sustained with their plan is not the development of everyday people like you and me. It is not the development of struggling families who don’t even have clean water to drink. It is the development of the “elite” and their heirs.
The thing so insidious about the UN is that they cloak their motives in an air of benevolence
They garner the whole-hearted support of the unaware by their word choices, their propaganda, and their warm politically correct façade. Meanwhile, the people of the world are willingly, happily led off a cliff, while being lulled by the UN Scheherazade.
Through Agenda 21 and the United Nations, the “elite” are attempting to brainwash the entire world to believe that allowing them to control the resources of the earth will be in our best interest. I would bet that grass-fed beef and free range chickens will still make their way to the banquet tables of the wealthy.
Clearly, indigenous people around the world have consumed insects as part of their diet. However, do you believe they farm those insects and purposely feed them feces? There is an enormous difference between the UN’s proposition and the foraging methods employed by hunter-gatherers across the globe.

If the UN was truly concerned about the well-being of the hungry people of the world, wouldn’t they teach sustainable farming methods? Wouldn’t they be promoting urban gardening, micro-livestock, and handing out heirloom seed packets? Wouldn’t they be cracking down on companies like Monsanto and Dow? (Who are poisoning much of the farmland of the world with their toxic seeds and pesticides.) This is pure Agenda 21 “resource management” to remove more resources from the hands of the poor and reallocate them to the wealthy.
If you are truly worried about world hunger, the answer is food self-sufficiency. Divert gray water to the garden. Learn to save seeds from one season to the next. Use farming methods that feed your soil. Avoid toxic chemicals. Learn urban farming techniques. Have the means to harvest and store water from multiple sources. Education is key. Not brainwashing behind a disguise of benevolence, land grabs, or dehumanizing options presented in a trendy new light.
