In this interview, Vandana Shiva, Ph.D., discusses the importance and benefits of regenerative agriculture and a future Regeneration International project that we'll be collaborating on.
We're currently facing enormously powerful technocrats who are hell-bent on ushering in the Great Reset, which will complete the ongoing transfer of wealth and resource ownership from the poor and middle classes to the ultra-rich. Perhaps the most well-known of the individuals pushing for this is Bill Gates who, like John Rockefeller a century before him, rehabilitated his sorely tarnished image by turning to philanthropy.
However, Gates' brand of philanthropy, so far, has helped few and harmed many. While his PR machine has managed to turn public opinion about him such that many now view him as a global savior who donates his wealth for the good of the planet, nothing could be further from the truth.
Gates' Stranglehold on Global Health
The magnitude of Gates' role over global health recently dawned on me. I believe the COVID-19 catastrophe would not have been possible had it not been for the World Health Organization, which Gates appears to exert shadow-control over. Remember, it was primarily the WHO that facilitated this global shutdown and adoption of freedom-robbing, economy-destroying measures by virtually every government on the planet.
When then-President Trump halted U.S. funding of the WHO in 2020, Gates became the biggest funder of the WHO. As explained in "WHO Insider Blows Whistle on Gates and GAVI," the WHO has turned global health security into a dictatorship, where the director general has assumed sole power to make decisions that member states must abide by, but according to a long-term WHO insider, Gates' vaccine alliance GAVI actually appears to be the directing power behind the WHO.
The two — Gates and the WHO — have been working hand in hand pushing for a global vaccination campaign, and Gates has a great deal of money invested in these vaccines. We've also seen extraordinary efforts to censor natural alternatives and inexpensive, readily available and clearly effective drugs, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, and it appears the reason for this is probably because they're competitors to the vaccine.
Emergency use authorization for pandemic vaccines are only given when there are no other treatments, so vilifying alternatives has been a key strategy to protect vaccine profits.
The Parallels Between Rockefeller and Gates
As noted by Shiva, the comparisons between Rockefeller and Gates are quite apt. Rockefeller created not just Big Oil but also Big Finance and Big Pharma. He had intimate connections with IG Farben.1 There was a Standard Oil IG Farben company. Without the fossil fuels of Standard Oil, IG Farben couldn't have made synthetic fertilizers or fuels.
In 1910, Rockefeller and Carnegie produced The Flexner Report,2 which was the beginning of the end for natural medicine in the conventional medical school curriculum. They eliminated it because it saw natural medicine as a hugely competitive threat to the new pharmaceuticals that were primarily derived from the oil industry.
Much of Rockefeller's history has been captured by Lily Kay,3 who sifted through Molecular Vision of Life's archives. There, she discovered that the Nazi regime, which was a eugenics regime that thought some people were inferior and needed to be exterminated to keep the superior race pure, didn't vanish when Germany lost the war.
Eugenics simply migrated to the U.S., and was taken up by Rockefeller under the term of "social psychology as biological determinants." The word gene did not exist at that time. Instead, they called it "atoms of determinism." Rockefeller paid for much of the eugenics research, which ultimately resulted in the silencing and suppression of true health.
To be healthy means to be whole, and wholeness refers to the "self-organized brilliance of your integrated body as a complex system," Shiva says. That's what Ayurveda is based on, and even this ancient system of medicine has been attacked in recent times. The notion of genetic determination ignores this foundational wholeness, seeking instead to divide the human body into mechanical components controlled by your genes.
"Coming back to the parallels, Rockefeller was behind it because he was driving the chemical industry. When the wars were over, they said, 'Oh my gosh, we have all these chemicals to sell.' And they invented the Green Revolution and pushed the Green Revolution on India.
Rockefeller, the World Bank, the USA all worked together, and if the farmers of India are protesting today, it's a result of Rockefeller's initiative, the Green Revolution in India. Most people don't realize what high cost India has borne; what high cost the state of Panjon has born.
Then you have Gates joining up with Rockefeller and creating the Alliance for the Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) … which pretends to be his solution to climate change. I say, 'My god, what kind of stage has the world reached that absolute nonsense can pass the science?' I'll give you just three examples from his chapter on agriculture, in which he talks about how we grow things.
First of all, plants are not things. Plants are sentient beings. Our culture knows it. We have the sacred tulsi. We have the sacred neem. We have the sacred banyan. They are sentient beings. So many people are awake to animal rights. I think we need more people awake to plant rights and really tell Mr. Gates, 'No, plants are not things.'
He goes on to celebrate Norman Borlaug, who was in the DuPont defense lab, whose job it was to push these four chemicals by adapting the plants [to them]. So, he created the dwarf variety, because the tall varieties are free varieties … [Gates] says we're eating food because of Borlaug. No, people are starving because of Borlaug. The farmers are dying because of Borlaug."
