The Incoming Food Shortages

This book is amazing, passionate writer, great knowledge on the farming sector and written in 1966 describing the coming on the socialist state.

It's incredible the world kept functioning for 50 years, this is not because of the government, but in spite of the government.

The things he wrote about farming we see today in several sector as energy.

Europe has been squeezing out oil producers, coal miners and even nuclear is fully socialized. France the NR1 nuclear energy producer has been shutting down plants for "checks" in the last months.

And in this thread we discuss food. How the governments/ rulers are completely controlling the farming industry already in 1966 it was big time, today is on a totally different level.

While output grew in farming for the last century caused by improved technology. They now see to go all the way to destroy farming outputs. Wether it's fertilizers, environment, municipal buyouts, solar panel fields, employment law constraints (who will work 12 hours a day milking cows?) or "organic small farm propaganda".

It seems they are going full on here now in Europe. In my opinion something very dark is taking place.

I think they want us dead.
They intend on ridding this planet of billions of souls. As Bertrand Russell stated, "Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so." With all of the advancements in technology famine really shouldn't even be possible. We are watching the intentional destruction of our infrastructure. The globalists are doing a demolition job. We will soon be witness to food rationing in stores. I think that most people on this forum understand the importance of beginning to learn how to grow your own food. I honestly never imagined I would witness this age which we are approaching. Be prepared.

I totally agree with you.

This:

As I said the energy scarcity is a created scarcity, as is the food scarcity as is housing scarcity.
  • Scarcity in housing is manufactured as well, by building less. In Europe they are destroying the building sector with forced ESG goals, problems with permits for new plots of land, educating generalists and portraying hard working builders as dumb, letting many more migrants in, giving them them close to 0% interest rates on mortgages.
  • The same for love. The promotion of dating apps finding the "perfect" partner. Men and women are seduced with unrealistic images of the other sex. Leading to an endless shopping experience, to never settle down. I consider myself one of the victims and sinners here. All our ancestors built families, and big ones.

The whole goal is creating artificial scarcity in:
  • living
  • food
  • energy
  • love
  • families
And they make us believe that this scarcity is good. Living in a small apartment, eating vegetarian, eating less, being self sufficient in energy consumption, not driving a diesel, "dating" until 30 to find your perfect partner and maybe getting 1 or 2 kids, only when you find the perfect partner.

Writing this reminded my of the city mouse experiment.



"The beautiful ones", a set of mice that are just taking care of themselves, looking spotless, clean, alone, completely disconnected from their mice society. I feel that what we see on TV or instagram are those. The solitary "the beautiful ones" which only accentuates the state of despair.

Anyhow coming back to scarcity. I think all signs come together that the artificial scarcity is the main policy. Personally I think we can't deny those signals.

Economics is the science which studies human behaviour as a relationship between ends and scarce means which have alternative uses.

Read this wiki:

In my studies the first lesson was "economics is studying scarcity" and I think the professor said that well years ago.

Those who control scarcity, control the prices and control the behaviour of people. Wether it's a patent (an artificial scarcity on knowledge, we act as if only 1 company knows this), the energy industry (which is controlled by CO2 pricing policies and allowances)

Especially Malthus is well knows for his absolute scarcity theories.

For example take the Mathusian League which started the smaller family propaganda.

And read into the Club of Rome and their book "the limits to growth"

Also read this book:

These books / theories are the basis of the WEF thinking. They are trying to get it under control, this growth. They think it will destroy them. They think that by controlling the population (especially in the west) with propaganda and artificial scarcities they can stop the "bomb". I think they truly belief it is a bomb.

They don't belief that we are Gods children, and therefore I truly belief their ideas and policies are of a satanic nature.

For the elite the normal souls, who have a large family, are a bomb to their global project. We are not souls, humans to them, we are bombs, who are competing for their "scarce" resources.

And today they go all out to stop this bomb. They truly hate us. Those who scream the loudest on humanitarianism are the worst totalitarians.

And while they create artificial scarcities, they are the ones who profit the most, they are fully invested in these temporary monopolies.

At the core, it is an inversion of Christian austerity virtues. Minimalism can be a virtue but what is not a virtue is the artificial scarcity, the infertility, or the lack of productivity. It is not a healthy detachment from possessions but rather an obsession with the reduction of them.

Something I have told people around me and it ties into general supply chain shortages by business is dealing with, is that we aren't going to feel the impact of the current situation (inflation/war/ongoing supplier/manufacturing issues) until Spring of 2023. The crop issues of this season won't hit stores until next year.

So plan accordingly.

BTW, taking up fishing and freezing what you catch could net you a fair amount of meat if you did that for the rest of the year. Something my wife's family did growing up is when you find veggies on sale, stock up. Learn to pickle them. Pickled veggies are very good for you and an easy side dish. They'd use fruits and make jam. Then a home baked loaf of bread, butter and jam will quickly fill you up.

General advice would be to study historical recipes from 2nd/3rd world countries where they ate seasonally and cheaply. Learn to make something like banitsa. All you need is phyllo dough and feta which can be bought in blocks. Apple and pumpkin banitsa is also popular. Learn to cook a whole chicken and use the parts instead of buying breasts/thighs. Cook the entire fish. Something like dolmas can be made cheaply and you can add ground beef/pork for protein. Alter your idea of a side dish. Could be potatoes. Or seasonal fruit. Or nuts. Or homemade bread.

My Western family can't comprehend the above.

My Bulgarian family....it has always been a way of life.

There are things they always had in stock. Meat frozen in a freezer to defrost at a future date that they either caught or came across on sale. Pickled veggies and jams. Flower and dough for baking at home. Feta cheese- which can be used for thins like banitsa mentioned above or can be sprinkled on salad (shopska).

Another cheap meal is Bulgarian princesa. Open face baked minced meat sandwich.

Good post. Bulgarian food is very very good. And healthy.

I forgot where I saw it, but somebody on the internet had made an excel / google sheets list of all the food processing plant fires/accidents - anyone have a link to that ? or at least a screenshot?

Just got a new freezer today. Have half of an entire cow coming next week. I'm totally open to lamb, but didn't have any connections for that like I do cow.
how big is your freezer and how many pounds/kilos of meat do you plan to store in it? I'm on the marketing looking for one too, wondering if upright or chest freezers are better?

A 13 cu ft upright freezer can store about 350/lbs of beef depending on the cut. I have two that size and I can barely fit a 700 pounder in there. Chest freezers are a bit more energy efficient I think but there is something psychologically unappealing about eating the stuff at the bottom.

15.9 cu ft chest freezer. I have about 400lbs in there.

Thanks - do you guys buy that much meat in bulk at once or whenever it goes on sale? anyone else have a recommendation on how much meat to store for the upcoming food shortage scenario?

They're going after breastmilk / baby food, assume they'll go after meat soon in some way or the other

Make sure you have a small generator to chill the freezer periodically. If there are legit food shortages there will be brown outs from time to time as well. I would recommend something that can run on both gas/petrol and natural gas, then you can store nat gas tanks that can last for a long time

I also just got a deep freezer and will be spending the next few weeks filling it up with meat, frozen fruits and veggies, ice-cream. etc.

Question for the forum: how long is frozen meat (beef, chicken, fish) good for? I’ve read that it’s about a year, is that correct?

If that’s the case, I need to come up with some sort of a rotation plan. Always have a year’s worth of meat in the freezer, continually using the oldest meats and restocking whenever possible.

For ice:

Read the link. The way it used to be done was cutting out large chunks of ice from frozen lakes and storing them in basements.

You could do the same thing by, if space allows, having an insulated extra freezer and freezing the largest blocks of ice you can fit in there. If frozen deep enough and filling an entire freezer they’ll last for weeks at least. You fill in between layers or pieces with sawdusr

Find a local farm and ask about buying a quarter.
This.
That should get you a better price per lb, and you can have it butchered ect. A 1/4 cow ought last a family of 4 several months at least, and be better price per lb than supermarket prices. You can cycle through as needed.
Thats about 200 lbs of beef 140 lbs processed. Depends on how much beef you folks eat.
