WHAT SHOULD BE PRIORITY #1 & #2 IN ANY NATION?

Priority number 1 in anyone’s life is one’s health so a healthy organic food supply is priority number 1.

Grow organic food and there will be less pollution from artificial chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, antibiotics, unnatural fertilizers, and GMO’s with manufactured resistance to unnatural quantities of herbicides and pest resistance which also is often poisonous to pollinating bees.

Who is making some of the biggest profits? It is the pharmaceutical companies and medical profession making big profits at the declining health in the nation. Statistically cancer is on the rise throughout the population and drug companies are advertising artificial chemical pills with hair raising side effects which need more pills to treat the bad side effects. The medical profession seems more interested in prescription renewals and comeback customers than in actually curing what ails you.

For cash you can get an MRI for about $300 and if you have insurance the cost can be as high as $1200 or about 4 times more. Yes, medical insurance private or funded by the government is a big money making enterprise often at taxpayer’s expense. The difference in brand name versus generic medicine is often a markup of as high as 1000% or ten times more costly.

Statistically only about 10% of the population is pill free and many seniors are on 10 to 20 pills a day which is just accelerating their demise and sending medical costs through the roof.

I am reluctant to mention the opioid crisis but this is just symptomatic of a legal pill for every problem philosophy whether mental or physical. Mental illness, especially depression, is treated with legal feel good drugs rather than addressing the real problem which is a dysfunctional lifestyle with crappy food intake. Pop a pill and go back to your dysfunctional lifestyle and crappy food is not a cure but merely temporarily masks the symptoms which will get worse once the side effects of the pill kick in.

Priority number 2 is not so obvious to most but it is the conservation and even expansion of wilderness and wildlife because that will be the only safety net for healthy food when the irresponsible technological manipulation of the domestic food supply makes it poisonous for human consumption in the long and even short duration.

Nature knows best in the long duration and if you screw too much and too long  with nature with pollution, artificial insemination, toxic chemicals, and untested long term GMO’s, etc. then you pay the ultimate penalty which is unhealth and death.

Ask and start counting how many of your relatives, friends, and acquaintances have some health issues? The answer to this question once you start counting is shocking to most.

So start eating as much organic food as possible, get some exercise, sleep well and contribute to an international and national conservation organization. It may not do much to improve the world but you will feel healthier and you will live with a clear conscience knowing that you tried to save wilderness for future generations who may just need it desperately to survive.

7 ETHICAL QUESTIONS ANSWERED ABOUT HUMANITY AND OTHER LIFEFORMS!!!

Should animals other than humans be given rights?

For the survival of future generations and a healthy environment it might be wise not to reduce the size of wilderness and it is smart to even expand it. Wilderness may become a life saving healthy source of food when technology irresponsibly destroys the health of domesticated animals and plants used as a food source.

Factory farming of domesticated animals should probably be outlawed as cruel and unusual punishment for animals because it causes pain and suffering which is not advisable to introduce into the food chain. Factory farming is unhealthy in the long run because disease and genetically unfavorable mutations are introduced needing antibiotics and other artificial chemicals to maintain health. All these disadvantages are passed on to the humans and pets consuming the food which can be disastrous for overall health in the long duration.

Should we edit our children’s genomes?

If a fetus has a debilitating disease such as Down’s syndrome an abortion of the fetus is the best and most efficient response which prevents the unnecessary burden on the family and society if the parents can’t afford the cost of maintaining an undesirable mutant.

Enhancing a child’s ability with genes that improve memory or intelligence in general, improve the health of the child, and improve physical coordination or looks in general should be conditionally permitted. Since the long duration potential bad effects of gene manipulation are unknown it may be wise for the prospective parents to have to set up an escrow account of a million dollars or more in case the gene alteration results in mental or physical handicaps later in life. Society should not be burdened with genetic mutants which can potentially need monetary support from society if the parents can’t afford to fully pay for the genetic mistakes which they choose unwittingly.

Should we make everyone “normal”?

Chemicals in pill form and genetic alteration can make someone less aggressive, more empathetic, and less dominant and more forgiving.

Pills are already given to aggressive violent criminals in jail and many psychoactive pills prescribed by psychotherapists also make someone less aggressive and more docile. The real question is whether the government should force everyone to medicate themselves so that they are not so aggressive. If done this could result in a docile society unable to rebel against an unjust government and tyranny would become almost absolute on into the foreseeable future.

If individual parents make a choice to have genetically more docile empathetic children then if they can afford it they should be given the right to do so. Eugenics carried out to an extreme by the government was a disaster in Nazi Germany so I don’t think it is a good idea to make offspring more docile or more superior with a government mandate for all.

I don’t like the equality mindset of “normal” to begin with because it stirs up visions of cloned normal humans all looking alike and behaving the same. One of the great strengths of humans is that there is so much genetic diversity which makes humans less vulnerable to total destruction by contagious terminal diseases and makes life interesting with varied looks, varied personalities, and varied abilities in humans. The world would be a very boring place if everyone in the world was “normal”, whatever that really means.

Should we abandon privacy online?

In an age when international drug dealers and criminals frequent the internet it is logical to police the internet for these illegal fraud and scam artists to the maximum. If that means losing your personal internet privacy is the cost then so be it. If you are afraid that your posted illegal drug habits, alcoholism problems, promiscuity, profanity, immorality, thievery, verbal abuse, health problems, etc. will cause future employment problems or insurance rate increases then it will be a just punishment for your transgressions.

If you are leading an illegal life then you should be smart enough not to post your activities on the internet in the first place. I sort of foresee a time when every law abiding citizen will be vetted before they have internet rights in the first place. There is far too much fake information and fake news on the internet today which needs a remedy soon or the internet will become pure insecure chaos.

If you are rich and in positions of authority then you will have or can afford a relatively secure encryption to communicate relatively sensitive corporate and personal information which will not be as vulnerable to criminal observation or theft. For the common human, let’s face it, there is no information which they possess which will be a violation of national security so what they post is their responsibility and they should post responsibly.

Will this make you vulnerable to ruthless advertising ad intrusions into your life? Probably yes, but with time there will be web services which will minimize your exposure to ruthless ads from retailers and other service providers.

If you want to keep secrets then don’t post them on the internet in the first place!

Should we give robots the right to kill?

If you phrase this question into should robots be given the right to kill, maim, or incapacitate humans then the question is really what kind of humans and under what conditions? It is entirely possible that robots could replace swat teams to some extent and non lethally maim or incapacitate all the armed criminal gang members in a hideout.

Where there is a question of kidnappers holding innocent hostages but the identity of the kidnappers is known a robot may be used to save as many hostages as possible and maim or incapacitate the armed kidnappers, preferably with non lethal means.

Robot soldiers going after known terrorists or armed enemy military humans in a secluded jungle or well protected areas is also a valid possibility.

Yes, there is also the possibility of armed police officer robots chasing and apprehending fleeing criminals in a non lethal way. As long as these police officers were not given lethal arms then I would be in favor of it.

Finally robots could be used to kill or harvest invasive animal and plant species in the wilderness with surgical accuracy and probably more efficiently than human hunters and harvesters.

Yes, intelligent robots could be programmed to confront most armed criminals and enemy military soldiers but not in all situations and the right to actually kill but not maim or incapacitate a human should be postponed to very far into the future when robots will be considered to be intelligent and moral enough.

Should we let synthetic lifeforms loose?

It is now possible to genetically engineer microbes and animals and the question is should these new forms be let into the wild or environment? With microbes you could probably say that genetically engineering deadly or contagious strains like e coli bacteria, etc. could have devastating eventual effects on human populations if they were to be released into the environment. Even genetically modified fish released into the oceans could have bad serious long duration impacts such as mass displacement or destruction of natural species.

Genetically modified corn or GMO’s have already polluted organic farmlands and the wilderness could similarly be polluted with other GMO plant life displacing indigenous populations.

Human long duration health is the primary issue and if microbe, animal, or plant life can potentially harm human health then synthetic lifeforms are a serious danger and steps should be taken to ensure that they are not released into the environment.

As a general precaution all genetically modified food for human or domesticated animal consumption should be labeled as such so humans have a right to choose between an organic version and a genetically modified one. I doubt that the US has the wisdom or balls to pass such legislation due to big agribusiness political clout but it is a vital step to ensure the long duration health of the human population worldwide.

Should there be population control?

Western promiscuity, robotization, income inequality, and a relatively easy life are ensuring the destruction of family life and severe reduction in the population. Poverty in third world countries is controlling population to some extent but perhaps birth control measures should be propagandized more and serious attempts at world population control should be made.

The earth has finite resources which pollute the more that they are utilized, so human population growth should definitely be curtailed and any reduction in human population anywhere is a good thing for the planet in the long duration.

Conclusion:

Genetic manipulation is a strong scientific tool to use for good or bad purposes. Theoretically whatever can be used for good can also be used for bad purposes so the future will be plagued with bad uses also. In the long duration, most of humanity will probably survive the bad effects but the environment could potentially be very adversely affected.

If humanity does not survive in the long duration then it may not be such a bad thing because the other remaining lifeforms on earth will be liberated from human intrusion and pollution. Nature is a deceptive and ruthless predator and if humans go too far in their genetic manipulation and pollution they will be punished with death in one form or another.

HUMANS HAVE THE POTENTIAL AND POWER TO CREATE MODIFIED AND NEW LIFEFORMS!!!

 

Not only do humans now have the power to modify biological organisms but they can actually invent new lifeforms with unique properties which can be passed on from one generation to the next. In the future not only will humans be able to modify themselves but will be able to create new human lifeforms.

There are many ethical questions which arise. Who will control this creation process and who will be responsible for the potential bad side effects of these efforts. Is it even possible that these new creations will lead to the extinction of humans as we have known them?

GMO’s in our food will alter the DNA of future human offspring and can we reverse the potential bad side effects of this consumption if it leads to long duration ill health and death?

Greed for money is frequently the primary driving force behind creating food which grows quickly, grows large, needs the least amount of food or fertilizer, has a longer shelf life, and is resistant to pests and disease and even unnatural chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides. Pollinating bees are not pests and they are being killed by the millions.

Should we let greed be the primary motivator for the creation of future genetic species and let big for profit corporations control our genetic destiny?

Humans will control the evolution on this planet in a Godlike creative fashion and that is a very scary thought given the horrific history of the human race.

Who will control bio engineering, what are the objectives or goals going to be, where will this experimentation take place, and how will tests be conducted before these lifeforms are released into the world at large? These are all serious political and scientific questions and we had better start thinking and talking about possible answers to these serious questions.

THE DANGEROUS MONSANTO MONOPOLY ON GMO FARMING!!!

monsanto-corruption

The greatest threat to food health is Monsanto creating GMO’s unnaturally resistant to herbicides and with built in toxic effects on good insects other than merely the pests that they claim to kill.

A food company should be making a profit on healthy organic food growing and not on toxic chemicals used in agriculture today. Monopolies are greedy and put profit ahead of healthy organic food growing which should be priority number one in any nation of the world.

Human  and environmental health is suffering and here is an brief introductory video on the political power of this dangerous chemical manufacturer.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ORGANIC FOOD+

organic-or-natural chart

Organic food is very hard to come by because true organic food means no artificial toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, definitely no GMOs especially bizarre ones with resistance to herbicides and insects and inability to reproduce and survive in the wild, and no artificial fertilizers but only natural compost material gotten from decayed organic matter. It also means using natural pollinators like bees and insects.

For millions of years humans have eaten organic food and it is time tested and nutrient dense. Yes, true organic food may have imperfections in appearance with damage from natural worms, insects, and fungus but that is a sign that the food is healthy and nutritious even for insects and microbes.

Ideal organic farms should have more than one crop grown and many natural flowers, weeds, bushes, and trees surrounding the property. Crop rotation is also highly recommended. A healthy ecosystem should surround the farmland ensuring healthy crops and food and even some natural wildlife can thrive in the surrounding area.

If you are having health problems then chances are great that you do not have enough organic food in your diet and are eating too much overly processed, nutrient poor, and overly sweetened food and drink.

The phrase you are what you eat is very true and appropriate and most childhood allergies, diabetes, and health problems originate because of a bad diet for the pregnant mother, not being breast fed, and not being fed organic food as young children.

Health is deteriorating quickly in America and excessive obesity is a growing problem. All mostly due to the fact that humans are no longer eating healthy  not overly processed organic food and taking too many metabolically altering chemicals, drugs, and medications like antibiotics prescribed by the medical profession and  others available over the counter without a prescription.

Toxic chemicals, monoculture agriculture, artificial insemination, and factory farming, is the primary cause of the deteriorating healthiness of the food and drink. Over processing the food and drink is no great help either. It will take much money and time to reverse the insanity of the American food system but it has to be done before medical care will bankrupt an already sick economy. Add to this major problem the pill popping philosophy of medicine and a truly healthy average American will soon become a rarity.

Support organic food with your dollars and get the government to pass legislation which will not tax the organic food industry and let it thrive and begin to prosper again for a healthy future for all!!!!!!
