Peak Industry Bodies are Selling Us Out, by IloveAg. The erosion of rights and governmental dictates on precisely how people can and cannot use their land are accelerating, particularly in the USA. Agriculture is suffering as a consequence.
All while our peak industry organizations have been at the table. Have maintained their seats.
Most people are convinced that it would be much worse if those vital seats had not been filled with the flesh of our hired guns.
I beg to differ. It is precisely BECAUSE of our presence at tables with people who despise our existence that things have got as bad as they have.
Without our voluntary compliance, insane regulations would never have flourished.
Peak Industry Parasites … spend more time with WWF [World Wildlfe Fund] and HSUS [Humane Society of the US] than they do with cattle and tractors and the people who run them. Board members are given 5-star treatment while being brought along in the ways of compromise and “reasonableness.”
Just as our federal political processes are front shows for the fact that bureaucrats are really in charge, boards are facades of representation while CEOs, swimming in big bucks, schmooze with Washington DC (and Rio de Janeiro and Paris and…) elites.
Our industry associations are modern day Trojan Horses. They’re killing us from within.
It’s time we stop funding our demise.
It’s time we stop worrying about how the anti-productivity brigade views us.
It’s time we stand up and manage our property, our animals and our families….
… without kowtowing to unelected and unaccountable leaches who care more about pacifying pansies in suits than about standing unabashedly for the principles upon which this country was founded.
