Community Over Corporations

I have set a personal goal to become less dependent on corporations as I’m disgusted with their behavior, their influence on every aspect of our lives; education, health, knowledge, access to things we need and want, what’s in our food, what we’re allowed to know about the products we use, the suppression of science, our history and what’s really going on in the world. They have an interest in everything which means they need to not only profit off the people but keep us ignorant so they can keep profiting off us. Nothing gets taught in any American school, including medical school, that isn’t approved by Big Pharma and Big Food which is why science is suppressed and our medical system is based largely on dogma. The fact that masks are talked about more than raising our immune system is a great example of how propaganda and puppets on the MSN and main stream social media push dogma for profit over the well being of the people. Facebook’s information suppressors, I mean “fact checkers” are nothing more than corporation sell outs. Obama added GMOs to the list of things in our food that the corporations don’t want us to know about so they don’t have to tell us. I can go on and on about how corporations make a ton of money off flat out lies and suppression and I’ve had it.

Fear is a great money maker. Better stock up on toilet paper for your respiratory virus. Put man made vaccines exempt from testing and legal action when it hurts you and your kids in your body or you’ll die from a virus with a 99% recovery rate. Better buy all that immune-destroying bleach and Lysol and use it every day then feel even more fear when the illusion of lack is the latest puppet show episode. The illusion of a food shortage is coming, better fear that too!! Stock up on corporate-produced processed foods. Buy a mask!! Buy gloves while you’re at it. Close our small business, only big corporations are able to “safely” operate. Stay in you house, consume all the Main Stream Media and Social Media garbage, the handful of corporations that own and control them are dependent on you so ignorantly consuming the shit they tell you to, They even have their puppet strings on scientists and doctors who know better than to speak the truth, they didn’t sell their souls for our benefit. We’re just the batteries needed to feed their evil and without fear you won’t be dependent on them and they can’t have that. They do not benefit from our freedom.

The good thing is this is all an option. Every bit of it. We always have a choice and none of us are on this plant to be lead to the slaughter house which itself is a choice. I’m not saying it’s easy as America itself isn’t a country, hasn’t been since the civil war. It’s a corporation so it only makes sense that corporations run this place and have the decision makers in their own corporations in decision making positions in the FDA, CIA and other government organizations with the illusion that they are there to protect us. Monsanto has people sprinkled all through our government and has destroyed farming and the planet as well as the health of many children and adults. These are the people making decisions for us chattle, which is what they call us in private. Their cowards so they won’t dare call us that directly.

We can start small. We need to support our small businesses and our local farmers. Our farmers are key, we need to show them what we want with our dollar or bartering in fair ways that benefit everyone involved. One great way is to find a CSA share in your community or order an organic weekly subscription box from farms directly. I just moved to Tennessee where I’m working on getting to know my local farms and other small businesses. I do this one product at a time. Where can I find local honey? Where are the farmers markets? How about those who make jellies, soaps, baked goods, cleaning products, etc? Where do we buy our seeds and plant starts for our gardens? Where do I get good, clean, living organic soil locally? Local farms and sites like LetGo are great resources for these things as well as used items.

Where and from whom we buy our products is only part of it. What are we able to make, contribute or where can we help? Before corporations were the norm, we met all our needs on our own or within our own communities. We bartered, bought local and were much, much healthier and had actual freedom. We weren’t dependent on corporations to supply our needs. Having a belief and not living it makes for a useless existence. I’m working on getting back to the land and back to supporting my community as well as providing for more of my and my family’s needs. We all have this ability as none of us were put on this planet to have consumerism the center of our lives and destroying this planet.

I started small and over the past 3 years have built up knowledge and skills to move me more towards independence. I see dependence on corporations the same as depending on the government. When you look into the info that sites like Google suppresses, neither the corporations nor the government have a very good track record along their trails of blood. Much like living without fear, practicing your birth rights, true freedom and informing yourself of what is being censored and suppressed and making your own products is an act or rebellion and an act of freedom. Your knowledge, freedom and independence is what they fear.

I make my own hygiene products, cleaning products, animal products, medicine, grow all the food I can and have ventured into condiments. Leaning to make my own mustard and mayonnaise was exciting and shrunk the grocery bill even more. Building our own furniture is a fun and freeing learning experience. There’s free and cheap wood all over which in exchange we take it off someone else’s hands that didn’t it or buy it from a person, supporting my fellow humans directly. When we or our animals get sick, I’m able to either make medicine myself or buy it from an herbalist vet, supporting the kind of medicine I like to see practiced on both humans and animals. I save seeds which is something that Monsanto would like us all to just stop doing, it’s not good for the franken food business. We by second hand whenever we can, preventing things from going into the landfills and giving our money directly to a small resale business or directly to a human. We’re into quality but not name brands.

The feeling of being able to go to the kitchen and whip up what we need is amazing, I love it and it motivates me to see what else I can make and not have to buy. I don’t have to run to the store or wait until the next shopping trip to get what I need right then. Although it’s not necessary, I do buy my ingredients in bulk from as local as I can get. This is a good amount of money up front however, every time I do the math, I’m saving a boat load of money in the long run. Making your own products and not buying in bulk will save a ton of money as well. I can also barter. I can trade my mayo, mustard, laundry soap, plant medicine or anything else I make for honey from a local bee farm or for food from a farmer I don’t grow myself. I can donate to those in need. I can sell a little and make some money. All the money stays local, helps my neighbors and builds our community.

When we make our own products, we know what is in them. Commercial cleaners contribute to cancer, autoimmune and other medial issues. Mine supports health. Commercial food is full of all kinds of crap, some, such as GMOs and certain chemicals, don’t have to be on the label. I’m not ashamed of anything in my products and when someone asks me what’s in them, I’m able to tell them and put every last ingredient on the label. I have more control over my health and what goes on and in my body. When I buy from local farm, I’m able to talk directly to the farmers and ask them about their growing practices. I’m able to obtain real info straight from those who are growing and handling the food before I buy it. No middle man takes a portion of the money I spend, it goes straight to the farmer or private person I’m buying from.

Another way I lower my dependence on corporations is to wild harvest our food. What is in grocery stores is just a small fraction of the food Gaia provides for us and much of it is depleted of nutrients due to farming practices and GMOs have even less. Their not worth the effort it takes to chew them. Foraged food is much more nutrient dense. Anything processed with heat has little to no nutrients and no minerals, unless it’s “fortified” with a man made equivalent which is never good for you. Learning about wild foods and how to prepare them not only keeps the grocery bill small but will improve health in ways Big Pharma fears. It’s an act of rebellious freedom, our birth right and the way we’re supposed to be getting our food.

I’m not saying this is perfect but we have to do our part and start where we can if we’re going to be a free and truly healthy society. Some things are harder to replace, it’s easier to whip up a batch of ketchup than it is to build your own vehicle. In these situations, I still buy used and I research the brands and private sellers I’m buying from. When it comes to things that are harder to replace, I just do my best. There is a beautiful awakening on the planet and a split. What we’re currently experiencing is chaos that is necessary for change to occur. Everything is so beautifully falling apart as the new is being manifested and created. I do my best for now however, we will see more and more businesses that are better for us, our planet and our freedom. The corporations will be replaced with better and those will be the ones I will buy from. Until then, all we can do is our best. These corporations won’t make it into the MSN and, much like the powerless are doing now, they will be censored and suppressed. That’s why it’s important to research where you get your info. If it’s fear based, it’s not worthy or your attention.

I’m in no way an expert and get my info from my own research. I urge everyone to do their own research and, for God’s sake, don’t use Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Facebook or any of the censored, narrative-protecting, puppet-ran outlets. Get a tor browser and think for yourself. Share with me! Share with others! How have you cut ties with corporations? How do you support your community? What do you make on your own? I’m always to new info and new ideas. Sharing of info is one of the many things this feardemic is supposed to stop. Don’t the illusion scare you. We’re here to create our own reality and build the new to make the old obsolete. Fighting not necessary.

Have a free, healthy and blessed day!

Merry Meet! I'm a Herbalist, Farmer and Nature Witch in beautiful East Tennessee. I live in the woods with my husband and 2 dogs where we are growing our off grid homestead and herb farm. I love wild harvesting medicine and food as well as making traditional foods and medicines. Being off grid, I'm mindful of the energy we use and what we are doing to the land we all depend on. I do my best to be as sustainable as possible. We're not perfect however, we're always improving! I value my fellow humans, my local, national and worldly communities. There's nothing better than seeing someone get healthier, happier and more empowered to help themselves. Healing isn't just ingesting a concoction or rubbing cream on the skin, it's so much more than that. As a healer, I can't deny that education is part of the healing. I'm of the belief that man made chemicals are responsible for the rise in dis ease. I've seen amazing changes in my health myself after eating mostly organic and Non-GMO. Due to my research and personal experience, I do not allow any chemicals or GMO ingredients in Love of Lotus Apothecary and Farm products. It makes no sense to me to put man made poison or franken plants in Mother Gaia's medicines. When I'm not being a foraging herbalist, I love hiking, swimming in nature spaces, spending time with loved ones, cooking, growing plants and meditating. I love rocking out behind my sexy ass drum kit and spending time with loved ones. Your time is greatly appreciated. Merry Part, Rainie Dae

Let's all share what we know, research what we hear and treat each other with love and respect.
