Regeneration and Planting Peace, A Letter from Ronnie Cummins

We’re not putting out a regular issue of Organic Bytes this week, because we want to remind you that we the people united, the global grassroots, have the power to overcome the life-or-death threats pressing down on all of us. But in order to move forward, we need to ask you once again in these calamitous times for your support, which we need now, more than ever.

One of OCA's major donors, Mercola.com, has generously offered to triple every dollar we raise in March.

If you are able, please send us your support.



The U.S. and the entire world, even as the pandemic winds down, appear to be lurching toward endless conflict and chaos. The Establishment cover up of the lab origins of COVID, rampant comorbidities, media fear-mongering, censorship, scientific fraud, Big Pharma profiteering, lockdowns, authoritarian mandates, and rushed to market “gene therapy” vaccine safety concerns, injuries, and deaths continue. The American body politic, for the most part, remains misinformed, exhausted, and divided. Degenerative food, farming, land use, and finance are still the norm. Politicians, from all parties, find it easier to yell at one another rather than sit down, listen to their constituents, negotiate, and find common ground. War is raging in Ukraine as well as many other nations. Poverty and suffering, exacerbated by the pandemic lockdowns, is rampant. The great web of biodiversity is unraveling. The climate is in free fall. Our children and the most vulnerable are forced to struggle harder than ever, just to survive and maintain a positive outlook.

Regeneration Now

And yet, as we never tire of repeating, there are positive signs of renewal, resistance, and Regeneration bursting out at the grassroots, from Main Street to the Middle East. OCA and our allies in the organic and natural health movement worldwide are moving forward to regenerate, not just our food, farming, environment, and climate, but our local-to-global politics and public health as well.

The overwhelming majority of people in the world are not our enemies or adversaries. Our fellow human beings want peace, democracy, justice, meaningful work, healthy food, and a healthy environment for themselves and their families, just like we do. The overwhelming majority of the global body politic, no matter what country we live in, do not want profit-at-any-cost corporations such as Bayer/Monsanto, Syngenta, and Pfizer, Silicon Valley, or indentured politicians such as Biden, Putin, and Xi Jinping taking away our freedoms and dictating our food, farming, technology, and health choices and practices. We don’t want Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, the military-industrial complex, Big Pharma, the CIA, and their allies the genetic engineering industry manipulating science, the media, foreign policy, and international relations.

If you look through OCA’s past newsletters and podcasts and the thousands of articles archived on our website, it’s clear that we already have the positive solutions and “best practices” we need for organic and regenerative food, farming, and land use. We know how to restore and rejuvenate our food, farming, environments, rural economies, and our health. Our common task, our common challenge, is to raise consumer consciousness, change public policy, and redirect private and public investment to make organic, regenerative, and natural health practices and products the norm, not just the alternative.

Planting Peace

By launching a U.S. and global campaign to stop the mad science of weaponizing viruses and pathogens, to stop the next pandemic before it starts, and bringing the perpetrators of COVID-19 to justice, OCA believes that we can plant the seeds of international peace and cooperation. By joining together to stop out-of-control science, genetic manipulation, industrial agriculture, nanotechnology, military madness, and bioweapons, by nurturing a 21st Century paradigm of peace, negotiation, and disarmament, rather than belligerence, we can safeguard our future. Even though it may sound utopian to many at this point in time, we really have no choice but to join with the global grassroots, especially our counterparts in Russia, China, and Europe and force our governments to cooperate in the interests of peace and Regeneration.

By sowing and cultivating the seeds of peace and Regeneration we can move beyond corporate disinformation and government-imposed censorship and share the best practices of organic food, natural health, nutrition, and integrative medicine. We can clean up our toxic environment and our toxic politics. We can move from elite domination and technocratic surveillance and control to participatory democracy.

The bad news is that the panic-mongering and censorship engendered by the mass media and hyper-partisan politicians has created unprecedented fear, confusion, and polarization.

The good news is that we’ll never have a better opportunity for transformational change than we have right now.

We at OCA and Regeneration International are perennial optimists, inspired by the positive creativity, hard work, and struggles of the global community. I believe that we, the global grassroots, are literally at a turning point in history. This is the crucial moment when we must step up our truth-telling and educational efforts. We must build stronger coalitions, resist the enormous power of the global elites and technocrats, and bring about fundamental changes in the marketplace, public policy, and finance. 

We believe that OCA and our sister organizations, Regeneration International (our international network), Citizens Regeneration Lobby (our USA lobbying group), and Via Organica (our Mexico sister organization) have a crucial role to play in this organic and regenerative revolution.

OCA’s fundraising, which depends upon voluntary donors like yourself, is always a struggle. OCA has 300,000 loyal subscribers to Organic Bytes and two million social media supporters, but we know that the pandemic and lockdowns have taken a toll on many people’s finances.

Nonetheless today we are asking you to make a sacrifice and donate to us. We need your support more than ever.

Mercola.com has pledged to triple every dollar that you give us over the month of March. Our future efforts depend upon your support.

Please make a generous donation at this time, if you are able. Thank you for your support.
