Europeans must move to a “more plant-based diet”, according to new EU food policy, which also revealed the bloc will promote “insect-based proteins and meat substitutes”. The European Commission’s Farm to Fork (F2F) Strategy for creating a “fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly” food system insists that such a transition “will not happen without a shift in people’s diets”. “Moving to a more plant-based diet with less red and processed meat and with more fruits and vegetables will reduce not only risks of life-threatening diseases, but also the environmental impact of the food system,”

Sorry. I'm sticking to my steaks, burgers, ribs, salmon on an alder plank and an occasional beer can chicken thank you very much. Sausage and brats aren't bad either.

Forget Brexit, this may just create one big mass Exit! That is, if any of them are smart enough to wake up. More reasons why global governance is bad!! These unaccountable bureaucratic leeches are as bad as the UN! They are little authoritarian tyrants leeching off the citizens of member countries who want to dictate how everyone lives. I thought the EU was only created to make it easier for Europeans to travel and engage in commerce over national borders. I didn't know they saw themselves as rulers over all those countries who tell people how they must live and what they must eat!! I suppose the next step is soylent green! Then, I assume when you get old and are no longer useful (to them), they will have you go to a place to die (with their help, of course) where they will show you a movie of nice sceneries as the life slips out of your body. ...or maybe they will just stick you in a nursing home with a lot of COVID-19 patients and let the virus take you out!

To me, two of the more important things justifying the development of civilization were to stop sleeping on the ground and to stop eating bugs. Anyone wanting to keep doing those things is welcome to do so; but I have no desire at all to revert on those things.

Starving rats growing increasingly "aggressive" are starting to become a problem as the coronavirus pandemic continues.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned last week that restaurant closures and restrictions intended to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus have left trash bins less full than usual, cutting into a major food source for rodents. In a battle over slim pickings, some have become more aggressive, leading to reports of rat cannibalism and rodent armies on city streets.“Some jurisdictions have reported an increase in rodent activity as rodents search for new sources of food,” the CDC said.

Harvard Prof. Blames Christianity’s ‘Malignant’

Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker said Thursday that the push for reopening society from lockdowns comes from Christianity’s “malignant delusion” of belief in an afterlife. Atheists who believe in this life alone are more concerned with health and safety, Professor Pinker suggested in a Tweet, while Christians tend to devalue “actual lives” and live a riskier existence. Belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, since it devalues actual lives and discourages action that would make them longer, safer, and happier.
