Could a “Harvest of Despair” Affect Your Survival?

Could a harvest of despair affect your survival? What do I mean? A DVD called Harvest of Despair: The Unknown Holocaust deals with the terror famine in the Ukraine in the 1930’s.

The Ukrainian famine was deliberately contrived and starved 7-10 million people to death. This was in spite of an abundant harvest of grain that year. Stalin and the Russian government wanted to put down any independent actions and resistance. Farmers fought hard against collectivization. Any peasantry resistance was crushed.

A key propaganda point in Stalin’s rationale was to stop the enemies of socialism and to protect the Soviet Union. Naturally, the Soviets denied a famine existed and used journalists to spread their Soviet spin.

Could we see something similar now or in the not too distant future? It wouldn’t take much for our government, as well as other governments, to contrive a famine and lie about it through our untrustworthy media.

While we may not have collective farms, do you know how much of our food production has been coerced into the arms of Monsanto, Cargill, and other multinational mega-corporations? What would it take to manipulate markets to keep food from us? Could high fuel prices be a component?

Additionally, don’t we already hear plenty about the alleged enemies the U.S. and the American way of life are facing? Will an even stiffer Patriot Act or martial law be used to “protect” us?

Many are saying we’re going through times like none they’ve seen before. What if we are in the beginning stages of a dire famine? How well are you prepared? Do you have long term storage food on hand? Have you planted a garden?

Is something in the air? What do people know? What are they sensing? Are we in for a harvest of despair?
