The assault on food: humans should go extinct in order to save corals, and Jamie Oliver, ethical Paragon, celebrity role model, and “chef”, thinks meat should be costly.


David Davis 

I bet you didn’t watch Jamie Oliver, a “chef”, who used once to be a nice scally London oik, who probably ate burgers with relish in both senses, on the Wireless tele Vision last night. Nor did I: but, just like theoretically shagging Elizabeth Taylor (when she would have been rather younger) I could imagine EXACTLY what it would be like.

He and Hairy-Hugh Frightfully-Posh are the latest useful idiots recruited by the Leninist caucus which is assaulting people’s right to buy what food (specially meat) that they want, at the lowest prices that a Market Civilisation is prepared to offer.

I was particularly upset by a phrase I had never seen before, in the Sunday Torygraph’s Wireless tele Vision pages a week or so ago - “The Ethics of Eating Meat” – to do with a trailer for these progs. I mean, meat is food. Man requires it, preferably as nearly like his onw as possible and preferably cooked so as to be able to shorten his gut and look like a man on two legs, in order to keep and run a very expensive brain, that requires 22 times more energy per gram per unit time than skeletal muscle.

Because the state “school” “syllabus” is itself so gutted and contains no scientific knowledge whatever that’s worth the name, plenty of people will have been taken in by his antics, himself electrocuting and blood-draining a chicken on live Wireless tele Vision. (At least he electrically-stunned it first unlike some protected classes of people I could mention.)

Furthermore, if a “super market” offers 3p for a chicken, and a putative farmer is disposed to take it, and no weapons are involved and they either continue to deal or agree to part company, than what business is it of Jamie the “chef”? Is it better that more people should eat animal protein, or fewer? the problme comes when the state interferes and causes the prevailing economic conditions to disadvantage the farmer when he sells at 3p. (I also think a particularly extreme example of one instance has been chosen, to make a documentary paoint.) He’s taking £1.2 million a year from one outfit too, so what is he up to? Distancing himself ready to run? Showing only what he thinks ought to be the right oikish attitude? PLaying to the Gallery? Or does he actually believe what he’s saying – in which case he ought not morally to take the money?

People who don’t like battery farming of meat, essential to Man’s diet or he will die, need not buy the stuff. Meat-eating is not and has never been compulsory – unlike many things under socialism that we could all mention. If enough people want it, then as now there will be a Market created and suppliers will find it profitable to supply expensive, free-range beasts. One great pillar of the modern Western world (not the only one) is the banishing of starvation and famine, substantially, from most of it, most of the time. Although we ought to bear in  mind Edward Spalton’s post of yesterday about the threat of global cooling and the tragic harm already done to millions, and more coming, owing to the depradations of the global warm-mongers and biofuel production at the expense of foodstuffs and animals.

We’d all do well to watch carefully the sinister machinations of statists. Remember, how only a few years ago, people were being “encouraged” to “recycle”? Even in 2005/6 the bus-side ads were positive and cheery; “Do it in your pyjamas! Do it while walking the dog!” Now look what’s turned out. we don’t have long to save our food, if the last example is anything to go by.

Oh and corals? There’s a report that “up to 80%” of Caribbean coral has disappeared “in recent decades” (how many?) according to the Royal Society, and “population control” is “needed”. I have nothing to add (as President E Benes said in October 1938 in Prague.)

  1. Going by the – “meat, essential to Man’s diet or he will die” comment, then I should be long dead, Dave. But I’m not. Makes one wonder, doesn’t it :)

  2. [Furthermore, if a “super market” offers 3p for a chicken, and a putative farmer is disposed to take it, and no weapons are involved and they either continue to deal or agree to part company, than what business is it of Jamie the “chef”?]

    From a libertarian point of view, it is the business of anybody who decides to make it their business — whether we agree or not — except for a coercive state. Freedom of speech and all that.

  3. True, you’re not dead, just … bananas….

  4. We are talking here about birds that have been bred to the point that their legs can no longer support their weight, held in conditions so insanitary that it is surprising any survive to 30 days to be killed and eaten.

    Now tell me – which greenazi said this?

    “..in my view the extra benefits Americans today can gain from eating animals do notjustify doing it. So we shouldn’t.”

    You’ve guessed it of course – that well known statist Robert Nozick in Anarchy, State and Utopia (p38 of the Blackwell edition)

  5. Watch the documentary earthling then comment on this matter.. The entire human race is never minded about anything that does not directly effect him or her. After watching this movie i felt disgust at what is done to animals in order to feed the growing infestation which has become the human race, intelligence has made us into a sick society constantly pushing the boundaries of the unacceptable. I do not believe in end of the world rantings & ravings but what i do believe is that something will snap sooner than later & that the human race with our infinite wisdom & if you look at the state of the world today even more infinite stupidity will not survive. We have the remarkable ability to justify anything no matter how sick or depraved if only it helps a human being in any way, or to discredit anything no matter if the evidence is there & full in your face.. pathetic. After watching that documentary i truly feel ashamed of being a human being. Humans think of Aids, Bird flue and other lethal fast working diseases as life threatening and work & experiment with animals in hopes of curing it all the while never considering that the reason the diseases spread like they do is the outrages overpopulation of the planet literally by the second of each day. I’m starting to think Disease is nature’s way of trying to stem the explosion of human life that will eventually mean the extinction of human life. Best of all is we have thousand of scientist working round the clock on cures for these diseases and other pills & concoctions to increase the human life expectancy while the evidence is starting to become visible all over the world that the human race is killing it at an alarming rate and will probably succeed… something which a couple of ice ages & naturals disasters over a couple of million years couldn’t do we might be able to do in a couple of hundred years. We are again blind to anything that doesn’t affect us directly and our children’s children will suffer for it
