Subject: BS: Fix the System but first know what it is
Fix the system and we can fix ourselves and the future. So...
What is the system?
By following the money we can see where regulatory agencies and organizations, corporate and otherwise, get their money.
Each of these organizations eventually end up perpetuating themselves over and beyond what they were initially meant to accomplish.
Yes their own self interest trumps the good they were meant to do.

Lets look at the basic systems of food air and water first.
The American Diabetes Association is sponsored by ; Dannon, Kraft Foods, Oscar Mayer, Velveeta, Lunchables...

The American Cancer Society is sponsored by; Tyson, KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell...

The American Heart Association gets its money from; Texas Beef, Kentucky Beef Council, Idaho Beef Council, Nebraska Beef Council, Colorado Beef Council, Cargill, Tyson, Unilever, Dairy Max, Subway, ConAgra Foods, Farmland Pork, Purdue, Pepsco, Nestles, Mars...

You see the trend that the meat and sugar corporations are the ones that cause the problems.

The government Health advisory boards are sponsored by McDonald's, Beef USA, American Meat Institute, Dairy Management Inc. American Egg Board, Anheuser Busch, Snack Food Association, Campbells, General Mills...

USDA may not say these foods are good for you but they do not warn against them. Yes, processed meat causes colon cancer but big AGRA has all the money of Tobacco and big pharma with the personality of the American Rifle Association and makes laws against filming meat processing and the American Consumption ACT which insulates the producers.

Big Pharma enjoys the problems the food industry causes.

I could go on and discuss how air and water is similar to the food system collusion with the polluters by silencing the problems with money.

I'm only going to say that all the protein is produced by plants, dead animal meat is only recycled plant protein. Shhhh, Corporations don't want you to repeat that fact.

The other systems that need fixing include the tens of thousands of cults and religions that may provide community and cures for loneliness but can have some horrible costs. Systems are protected by thick hard shells of money and are hard to crack.
