Food Nationalism; I like That! By James Reed

     Even if there is a Grand Plan by the globalist ruling elite to pull down the temple at some point, at least in the short-term globalism is getting a hammering. The lower level new class are worried about borders closing, and the rise of food nationalism:

“It’s not just grocery shoppers who are hoarding pantry staples. Some governments are moving to secure domestic food supplies during the conoravirus pandemic. Kazakhstan, one of the world’s biggest shippers of wheat flour, banned exports of that product along with others, including carrots, sugar and potatoes. Serbia has stopped the flow of its sunflower oil and other goods. Russia is leaving the door open to shipment bans and said it’s assessing the situation weekly. To be perfectly clear, there have been just a handful of moves and no sure signs that much more is on the horizon. Still, what’s been happening has raised a question: Is this the start of a wave of food nationalism that will further disrupt supply chains and trade flows? “We’re starting to see this happening already -- and all we can see is that the lockdown is going to get worse,” said Tim Benton, research director in emerging risks at think tank Chatham House in London. Though food supplies are ample, logistical hurdles are making it harder to get products where they need to be as the coronavirus unleashes unprecedented measures, panic buying and the threat of labor crunches. Consumers across the globe are still loading their pantries -- and the economic fallout from the virus is just starting. The specter of more trade restrictions is stirring memories of how protectionism can often end up causing more harm than good. That adage rings especially true now as the moves would be driven by anxiety and not made in response to crop failures or other supply problems.”

     So, what is this: food racism! Well, so be it. And Australia needs a wakeup call from its inferiority complex, produced by decades of deracination, multiculturalism, and mass immigration, shredding the national identity it once had, to stop selling of the farm to China and other foreign buyers for a mess of pottage. Get some self-respect and healthy survival instincts back, Australia! Try and be like the rest of Asia which does not sell off the family farm.
