Many years ago I wrote about the war on beef by the Left. As I pointed out at the time, the Left hated beef for a number of reasons, primarily because they wanted an international standard for diets and because they hated that beef produces less food than a similar amount of effort could produce vegetation. But the real reason is if you can control what people eat you can control the people. Diet is destiny. See Where's the Beef at American Thinker.
Tom DeWeese has written an essay surprisingly similar. Read it here.
From the article:
To bring the cattle industry into line with this world view the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has accepted the imposition of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef, which is heavily influenced, if not controlled, by the World Wildlife Fund, one of the top three most powerful environmental organizations in the world and a leader in the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP), which basically sets the rules for global environmental policy. This is the same World Wildlife Fund that issued a report saying, "Meat consumption is devastating some of the world’s most valuable and vulnerable regions, due to the vast amount of land needed to produce animal feed.” The report went on to say that, to save the Earth, it was vital that we change human consumption habits away from meat. As pointed out earlier, the fact is most land used for grazing isn’t capable of growing crops for food. Further, to have the WWF involved in any part of the beef industry is simply suicidal.
It’s interesting to note that the "Principles for Sustainable Beef Farming,” issued for the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef by the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Working Group (SAI), follow the exact guidelines originally presented in the United Nations’ Agenda 21/ Sustainable Development blueprint. Agenda 21 divided these into three categories including, Social Equity, Economic Prosperity and Ecological Integrity. Using almost identical terms, the SAI plan for Sustainable Beef uses the following headings for each section of its plan: Economic Sustainability, Social Sustainability, and Environmental Sustainability.
Under Social Sustainability are such items as Human Rights, Worker Environment, Business Integrity, and Worker Competence (that means that workers are required to have the proper, acceptable sustainable attitudes and beliefs). Under the heading Environmental Sustainability are Climate Change, Waste, and Biodiversity, for the reasons already discussed.
Regulations using these principles impose a political agenda that ignores the fact that smaller, independent cattle growers have proven to be the best stewards of their own land and that for decades have produced the highest grade of beef product in the world. Instead, to continue to produce they will be required to submit to centralized control by regulations that will never end and will always increase in costs and needless waste of manpower.
Read teh whole article; DeWeese is spot on.
This is a long term campaign and has been in the making of rdecades. They ARE coming for your beef, folks.
Now with the beef. Screw them. They should be able to choose to eat beef or not eat beef. I could not care less what they eat or don't eat. But the smug idiots don't want me to have choices, they want to deny me a choice on what I eat because of their choices.
And they don't even see the idiocy of their position.

This world would function fine if everyone just minded their own business. Too many people want power over others to compel them to live they way THEY want and not how the person in question wishes.
