Between the Lines

Published: April 24, 2011, Author: JayTaber

Upside Down World interviews Marie-Monique Robin, author of Death Squadrons and Our Daily Poison. In her research on these topics — both made into documentary films — Robin revealed that the National Security Doctrine, applied to the Southern Cone by the U.S. State Department and CIA, had its roots in the French School, which served as the model for the School of the Americas, where crimes against humanity are taught by U.S. Special Forces.

In the second part of the interview, Robin discusses the epidemics of cancer, neurodegenerative disease, and reproductive fertility issues rising from industrial chemical farming in the developed world. Without getting into the food security aspects of monoculture, Robin makes it clear that our present worries over the world population explosion of the last half century will likely be overshadowed by pandemics associated with toxic food production.

Although the interview limits itself to brief responses, it isn’t hard to read between the lines, foreseeing a future where global starvation, disease, and covert military operations combine to significantly reduce the world population, at the cost of public health and human dignity.
