Hemp Finally Returns to America!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Infowar Social Networking Coalition,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Hemp Returns to America for the First Time in 60 YEARS”

My Commentary: It’s about time! So long as Americans don’t cave in to more pathetic “drug war” propaganda and lies, the timber, cotton and oil industries can say finally begin to say goodbye to their government-enforced monopolies over the vast majority of the world’s textile, paper and fuel production – which incidentally rely heavily upon a wasteful and obsolete business model of artificial scarcity and price gouging in order to continue reaping the enormous profits they have grown so accustomed to over the centuries, while also keeping them in constant receipt of corporate welfare (AKA “subsidies”), and unreasonably rewarding them for destroying the entire ecosystem! These are some of the same industries that have continuously lobbied for government-sponsored military intervention in those commodity-rich sovereign foreign nations that are unwilling to be subdued and imperialized in the name of “progress” and “industrialization,” both currently, and historically!

Hemp, for the win! It is a superior source for the world’s textiles, paper, and fuel. It contains more cellulose than both timber and cotton, it gestates in a mere six weeks, it does not significantly deplete the soil it grows on (hence requiring almost no crop rotation), it requires little to no fertilizers, it does not need to be sprayed with pesticides (since the negligible amount of THC within it deters insects, naturally), and it also makes for a great bio-fuel, along with a form of eco-friendly plastic, and even a type of “concrete” (hempcrete, which is vastly stronger than what we currently build with, now)! It’s time for some TRUE progress to take place!

The Overpopulation Myth: Pseudo-Scientific Call For State Control Over All Human Life

The surface of our planet is made up of 70% water and 30% land. In total, the Earth contains approximately 57.47 million square miles of land. Of this, 20% is covered in snow, 20% is mountainous, 20% is dry land, 30% is fertile, and 10% has no topsoil:

Using the  above figures, I calculate that there are currently about 17.241 million square miles of fertile land on our planet– which translates as roughly 11.034 billion acres of food-sustaining land.

As of 2008, the world human population on Earth was almost 6.7 billion individuals:

Now, let us go over some hypotheticals, shall we?

If all 6.7 billion individuals on Earth were to evenly distribute, then live upon the roughly 11.034 billion acres of fertile land available on our planet, every single man, woman and child in the world would have approximately 1.647 acres of their very own self-sustaining property to live upon!
