More steak for the rich: Globalists pushing for insect diet to “save the planet”
(Natural News) Globalists are campaigning for the widespread adoption of insect-based diets to “save the planet.”
The World Economic Forum (WEF), an international organization composed of the world’s rich, released a promotional video on Jan. 21 hailing insects as the future of Western diets. The video noted that insects are more sustainable to produce than other protein sources.
“Insects are forecast to make up more of our protein consumption in the future,” the clip claimed.
The video also stated that insects are currently used for pet foods while around two billion people in Asia and Africa regularly munch on bugs such as scorpions.
But Europeans have not yet embraced these exotic foods. To encourage insect consumption, the WEF launched a food competition through its digital-crowd engagement platform, UpLink. The competition calls for “innovative, diverse sources of protein that will satisfy tomorrow’s consumers.” The organization stressed the importance of a green protein source as the global population is forecast to hit nearly 10 billion.
However, many people doubt that the WEF is advocating for the better.
Globalists advocate for insect diet so they can eat meat
The video was flooded with comments criticizing the organization. One person wrote on Twitter, “The elites will continue to eat steak and pork but the lower classes will be forced to eat bugs. Evil.”
“So, your objective is to degrade people to the level where they have to eat this crap,” said another.
One person pointed out that Africans and Asians are forced to eat bugs because they come from “very poor countries” with incompetent governments. “I [listened] to a defector talk about life in North Korea who said their only source of protein was grasshoppers while the elite dine on steak,” the comment read.
Many people previously called out the WEF for the irony of its advocacies. The organization has been asking the public to be mindful of their carbon emissions. Yet every year, its 1,000-plus members travel via private jets to Davos in Switzerland.
