Posts Tagged ‘Vatican City’

Vatican City, though small in size, has a worldwide footprint.

It’s been a while since I wrote an installment of Rome Watch, a series of posts designed to highlight the anti-Christian political beliefs and activities of the Roman Catholic Church-State. 

I titled this one “Grab Bag” due to it being a collection of short pieces all with the central theme of Rome’s ongoing attack on political and economic liberty throughout the world. 

Let The Eat Bugs!

Marie Antoinette is famously quoted as saying “Let them eat cake!”  This saying is often held up as a model of aristocratic arrogance directed against the poor.  But while Marie Antoinette is long gone, her spirit marches on.  The 21st century variant on her famous saying seems to be “Let them eat bugs.”  And it should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention that Pope Francis has joined in on the chorus of voices calling for all of us to “reimagine” our eating habits.   

And while Pope Francis didn’t come right out and tell his audience at the EU Youth Conference to eat bugs, he did lecture them to eat less meat

But the Pope’s message was right in line with the World Economic Forum (WEF) that famously put out a video a few years ago saying that by 2030 “You’ll own nothing and be happy.” While I’m entirely sure the Bond villain types that made up the WEF certainly would like it if ordinary people owned nothing by 2030, I’m not sure they’re going to get there. And if they do, of a truth none of us will be happy. 

But what’s often overlooked in that same video is at the 0:34 mark we are told by our “betters” that we’ll eat much less meat.  Further, we are lectured, it meat will be “an occasional treat,” kind of like when you give your dog a bone.  This will be “for the good of the environment and our health.” 

Interesting that the Pope, in his letter to the attendees of the EU Youth Forum, made this same argument.  He wrote, “it would be appropriate to consume less meat:  this too can help save the environment.”

So, what’s the connection to eating bugs?  It’s this.  This WEF has long pushed eating bugs as a solution to what it sees as an environmental problem caused by too many people.  To solve this “problem,” the WEF believes we all must eat less meat and more bugs.  Just take a look at the 2021 WEF video titled “Insects could soon be appearing on restaurant menus in Europe.”

Klaus Schwab really, really wants you to eat the bugs to save the planet.  So does the Pope, but he’s not honest enough to come out and say so.
