If we plan to survive, we have to eat. Organic is survival food. Super organic is thrival food. We see organic carries a premium that can approach 100% of the poison "food". Now why should anyone have to pay twice the price of poison for real food? Simple, to keep it available just in case we tire of poison. Let's shop 50/50 and save a few bucks. Would this world be better off with the average shopper running it? What is the point in knowing the cost of anything and the value of nothing? If you allow your customers to price your merchandise, you lose more customers than merchandise.
So the cost of organic comes up often because no one can properly value poison. If I can buy poison on a 2 for the price of 1 sale, have I made a good bargain? Suppose we want to lower the cost of eating organic. Very easily done. Think small. Think the most valuable convenience food in the world. Think sprouts. Why sprouts? 1) Compact dry storage of nuts, seeds, grains, beans, good for 3-5 years of constant rotation. 2) All capital investment in sprout "farming" is an equal investment in survival preparedness. 3) Very little "acreage" can produce hundreds of pounds in an apartment, in one week. 4) The typical net weight increase from seed to food I recently read was 5X 5) The nutritional value of a sprout is greater pound for pound, than the seed it came from or the plant it will become, given an honest chance. 6) surplus given to friends and neighbors quickly become weekly sales and your food supply is now heavily subsidized. You are now eating organic at a double profit. Your health and your wallet.
If you are planning to survive are you also planning to feed your neighbors? To me that seems the best survival strategy one can have. What if your entire neighborhood was producing just surplus sprouts and marketing throughout the community - home delivery of course? What if we invested some profit in a quality juicer and canning jars with the intention of making surplus juice for the neighbors? Suppose we might make it through a depression? Maybe their next great war?
No matter what the current market price of organic seed or from what part of the country the supplier, purchase encourages greater production, increasing the supply for which we create demand. With the price of poison going up or dollar down, increased organic production will make price increases there less volatile. Increase inventory at a faster rate than new business. If we all begin doing business in our neighborhoods, we can afford to eat better than we ever have. Neighborhoods could even supply local or more distant markets. If it appears to be too much work, try it as a healthy hobby and add a whole lot of variety to your raw diet or the raw portion of your diet. As volume increases, talk to local organic growers about crops they might provide for seed.
Though it might seem unrelated to sprouts there is a reason so many of us were taught the age old story of the Three Little Pigs. The reason we were taught was to know there might be wolves among us and they might be every bit as hungry to devour us as it appears to me they are. To think defensively is to ask from where our basic staples; food, water, shelter, clothing, waste disposal, paper come. How close can we store these things to home? How much can we store? Certainly far more if we are doing business. Would that be un American these days?
Let us daily increase in: wisdom, love, gratitude, reverence, healing, peace, joy, happiness, laughter and prosperity. Love, Luck and Blessings X 10,
