THREAD 3 -GLOBAL POWER CENTRES

The transnational corporations (THREAD 1 ) & investors (THREAD 2 ) that are now pushing a #plantbased food system are forces that operate symbiotically within the bulwark of neoliberal capitalism.
The latter is constituted of such (overlapping) power centers as @TrilateralNA, @GroupofThirty, @CFR_org & @wef. These think tanks represent the strategic-planning & consensus-forming centers of the #plutocracy (aka, the 'transnational capitalist class').
We should not be surprised, or dismiss it as 'conspiracy', when the obvious appears to us: those players that are having the intention to modulate world markets are also keen on shaping the food system.

THREAD 2 -LARGE INVESTORS

The #vegan option promises a new market horizon to a corporate system in need of expansion. In addition to novel product lines developed by transnational companies, business operations are launched as ambitious tech #startups.

#SiliconValley & other large investors are attracted in support of a model that will activate supply chains, market speculations, & trade wars over what are expected to be the resources of the future.

Financial #speculation has become key to overcome the stagnation tendencies of global markets. Global money management can be narrowed down to some 17 financial giants, collectively managing >$40 trillion in a self-invested network of interlocking capital.

THREAD 1 -TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATIONS

Food producers look back at decades of successful marketing, no matter if "animal-" or "plant-" based. In contrast to the past, transnational food corporations are now actively supporting anti-livestock messages. WHY?

In support of its near-vegetarian #GreatFoodTransformation, the EAT foundation has set up a formal partnership (FReSH) with the World Business Council on Sustainable Development (@WBCSD), an industry platform of which the President is also a member of EAT's advisory board.
Within FReSH, affiliated food multinationals have explicitly promoted a '#plantbased' transition, sometimes with strong anti-meat overtones. fortune.com/2019/11/19/nes…

1) #GreatFoodTransformation

"Humanity has never before set out to RADICALLY CHANGE THE FOOD SYSTEM at the scale or speed envisaged by the Commission."

"Opponents will warn of unintended consequences... This Commission disagrees."

Gates & Bezos involved.

2) Artificial plant-based meat printed by 3D printers is on the World Economic Forum's menu—for you, not for them of course.
3) Propaganda has been under way for a while. Both by WEF...

Everybody talking about the #GreatReset

Nobody taking about the #GreatFoodTransformation by EAT-Lancet Commission that goes with it.

Gates, Bezos, Lancet involved.

P.S. Why did The Lancet put out a false #HCQ study?
Can download it here. Page 20 has the orange graphic above. EAT Forum partners with Beyond Meat/Impossible Food (Bezos/Gates).

Billionaires with conflicts of interest ($$$) should not be in charge of our health and wellbeing.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development @wbcsd is a very #creepy organization. Business people in expensive suits on the one hand, "stewards of God's planet" New Age nutters on the other?

This is what they'd like to have in place by 2030
docs.wbcsd.org/2017/03/Vision…
But it gets more freaky still: for 2030, the WBCSD also expects widespread use of "millions of eyes" to monitor compliance with the sustainable development goals.

#BigBrother watching over your Planetary Health...
Forget national sovereignty & governments - NGOs will be designing our public decisions. 10-50 million of them. 🤔

META-THREAD exploring the #GreatFoodTransformation toward a (semi-vegetarian) #PlanetaryHealthDiet designed by the #EATLancet Commission.

It is essentially the dietary part of the World Economic Forum's #GreatReset, branded as a #FoodCanFixIt-path to the #UnitedNations' #SDGs 👇 Image
This first thread demonstrates how the core organization (#EAT) portrays itself as a 'Davos for Food' & connects to major industrial, financial & geopolitical platforms. Its model: public-private partnerships (#PPP), business models & #greenwashing

Next, I'm outlining how all this isn't new. This is not so much a #GreatReset as a #GreatAcceleration (it certainly isn't about #COVID) The dynamic started in the 1970s with #MauriceStrong's $$$ model for 'sustainable development' & 'global governance' 👇

#TAX! Here's Davos' #WorldEconomicForum again, suggesting that we should tax meat eaters... 'like smokers' ?!?! What a #GreatReset that'll be! 😬

weforum.org/agenda/2018/01…
The idea is also spread by C. Figueres, a main driving force behind the Paris climate agreement & member of the Board of.... #WRI 🤔 The meat tax idea is further amplified by #EAT member Springmann who wrote a specific study on it: journals.plos.org/plosone/articl…

A #GreenNewDeal-linked plan of New York’s (#NYC) City Council (& mayor Bill #deBlasio) to halve the red meat supply in municipal buildings & phase out processed meats in schools & hospitals by 2030.

Ehrr... what about the future of New-York hot dogs? 🤔

Previously (read first ), I mentioned the setup & history of a plan for a #GreatFoodTransformation of diets worldwide away from #meat, which is linked to the World Economic Forum's #GreatReset

Let's now look at how fast things are moving already
Thread 👇 Image
As a reminder: the #EATLancet Commission behind this plan advocates "hard policy interventions", because the public would otherwise reject its ideas. Also, social engineering is being deployed by its partner (WRI), based on the following strategies... Image
I already mentioned that this plan has considerable leverage over the new #EU food policy framework (the #GreenDeal) - setting the stage for the interventions favoured by #EAT & #WRI Image

In a previous thread (read first: ), I outlined how the #WorldEconomicForum's #GreatReset & #BuildbackBetter plans also have a #diet part, called the #GreatFoodTransformation.

Let's now look at where it's coming from; planned way BEFORE #COVID19! Thread👇 Image
The #EAT foundation -calling itself 'a Davos for Food'- has designed a #GreatFoodTransformation compaign to put the world on a so-called #PlanetaryHealthDiet, which is a semi-vegetarian diet (vegan also allowed) looking like 👇 (note that one can have more sugar than beef?!) Image
The '#GreatFoodTransformation' not only echoes Davos' #GreatReset but also the '#GreatTransformation' proposed in 2011 by the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU): wbgu.de/en/publication… Image

The cover of @TIME: the #GreatReset is coming. Swallow the pill, folks, for your own good. The #Davos aristocracy at @wef wants the best for you & is so kind to reset your lives in 2021. No need for democratic consultation, which would but slow down the process of your salvation. Image
Relax! The founder of @wef, Klaus Schwab, has described 'stakeholder capitalism' as his preferred model, positioning 'private corporations as trustees of society' to 'address social and environmental challenges'. time.com/5742066/klaus-…
In 2019, WEF entered into a partnership with the United Nations to accelerate the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (#sustainabledevelopmentgoals) Its plan is to shape policy proposals through a Fourth Industrial Revolution using the 'URGENCY' credo. weforum.org/press/2019/06/…
