(FiveNation.com)- Last week, the Washington Post advised Americans that instead of a traditional holiday meal, they should consider eating insects.
I would advise the Washington Post to kiss my aspic.
In a report, the Post suggested field crickets and salted ants that could be found on Amazon.
According to the article, a six-year-old girl in Pennsylvania received a standing ovation for eating fried worms. She claimed they tasted like kettle corn. The report added the usual nonsense about crickets having more protein than beef and everyone in third-world countries already consuming them.
The article stated that watching others enjoy insects may help break down barriers.
Before insects become standard fare, more diners must be persuaded that they are food. Food tasting, surveys, and educational demonstrations, researchers and educators investigated the psychology of consumers and discovered that resistance to eating insects could be strong.
This is the latest example of a growing trend to promote eating insects to “save the planet.”
Reports show that in response to soaring inflation and the cost of living crisis, a major supermarket chain in the United Kingdom is finalizing plans to stock insects on its shelves. They will market them as a cheap food source for people struggling to afford to feed their families.
Aldi is reportedly considering stocking “edible” insects and providing recipe kits for parents to prepare worms and crickets for their children. Possible products include “sustainable cricket burgers” as well as “nuggets” and “mince.” The supermarket is reportedly involved in a TV game show in which insect “farmers” will pitch the insects as the “next big thing” for Aldi, just when you thought the situation couldn’t get any more dystopian.
The Aspire Food Group has recently pledged to produce 9,000 tons of insects annually for human and animal consumption following the completion of the world’s largest cricket food processing facility. Along with crickets, worms and maggots are popular in Europe.
Should consumers wash down the grubs with a tall glass of refreshing sewage?
The World Economic Forum published two articles on its website in 2020 that explored how people could be conditioned to accept eating weeds and bugs and drinking sewage water.
I guess that’s a “Yes.”
A separate article published on the WEF website described how people could be conditioned to enjoy eating ‘food’ that sounds disgusting on the surface.
The ‘Great Reset’ entails implementing a drastic reduction in living standards for the masses, forcing them to eat insects, weeds, and sewage while the Davos elites continue to dine on the finest cuisine.
