A BROKEN FOOD INDUSTRY- BUT WHERE IS OUR REPRESENTATION? by Cathy D. Slaght
There are men and women who are put in place to represent we, the people. (We, the people being the ones getting so sick from consuming hazardous food and beverages.) So, where are they in this ongoing struggle against a broken food industry? Why aren't they speaking up, introducing some legislation regarding aspartame, for example, or supporting the labeling of genetically modified foods?
Look in the direction of the corporations. Our politicians have, for the most part, sold their souls to the corporate structure. Selling your soul, in many spiritual traditions, means losing the right to choose. We, as human beings, have that basic right. It's what separates us from animals. It's called free will. Perhaps after taking money and perks from corporations our politicians have lost the ability to choose how they vote.
I'm no expert on how all this works. But just one thought - our representatives are paid extremely high fees for giving speeches. When said fee is in the neighborhood of many thousands of $$, it's obviously a bribe of some sort .(After all, what kind of speech could possibly be worth that kind of money? Seems like even $500,000 a speech is available to those who have sufficient power to sway the masses.) Then of course we have the lobbyists, hedge funds, and so on. It's way over my head, because we're talking big money here. You can find some basic information online, especially about who takes money and who doesn't. Because of low integrity among the major media journalists, you probably won't find out any other way. Here's one link regarding who has accepted money from Monsanto:
This has been going on for decades and shows no sign of slowing down. And it's not about judgment. The emotion of judgment is extremely toxic. Who knows, maybe you'd be the same way. If you knew you were getting major financial compensation from the corporations, you might play ball with them too. So drop the judgment, it only brings your vibration down. However, we have to be aware of the reality of the situation if we have any intention of ever changing it.
And there IS good news. Citizens are tired of the hypocrisy of our representatives, especially on the issue of genetically modified foods. Our most important votes are cast every day at the cash register. We can purchase only organic, eat at the restaurants that ban GMO (go Chipotle!) and change our system. We want to hold on to OUR souls, OUR power of choice.
One challenge is that organic food is more costly. So, for this mother's day weekend our clearings are going to focus on financial abundance. And remember, on the home page of this site, at the bottom under this symbol < are frequencies for prosperity. Print them out, put them under your checkbook, mattress, pillow etc. If you don't have a printer, just write them down. We are in a mathematical universe. It's all numbers. Change your physics!
