Bill and Melinda Gates own almost 250,000 acres of productive farm land, and it’s my hunch that it’s not simply because he loves the smell of dirt. Bill, along with a cooperative media, bills himself a philanthropist. But the world’s 4th wealthiest man occasionally passes off as altruism what is in reality control. Two months ago he stated wealthy nations such as the U.S. should switch to a 100% synthetic meat diet. He then stated that to accomplish this “might require regulations.” Now you understand some of my concern. When a guy who wants to control America’s dinner plate controls vast amounts of farmland and possesses the financial resources to dictate legislative outcomes, I see red flags.
