Understanding the Codex Alimentarius
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)
World Health Organization (WHO)
“The Codex Alimentarius system presents a unique opportunity for all countries to join the international community in formulating and harmonizing food standards and ensuring their global implementation. It also allows them a role in the development of codes governing hygienic processing practices and recommendations relating to compliance with those standards. “
In other words, these people have been working towards CENTRAL PLANNING on a global scale. This is the idea that there should always be a central location where those possessed of God-like abilities and wisdom decide how each of the 6.5 billion people on earth should live. It’s like our current national system in Canada, only much more god-like. At the international level, bureaucrats have to be very very bright and very wise – and also good! I think it would be hard to find words to describe this level of humanity.
To believe in central planning requires that you sustain a constant fantasy about human malleability, that somehow you know what’s best for everybody else and that they will actually go along with your plans. This fantasy is kept alive by power lust and socialist delusions.
I wouldn’t mind if Codex was only an association of experts who cooperated on creating standards that businesses and individuals could accept or reject as they pleased. But in that case we would be describing a voluntary situation based on personal sovereignty, customer choice, and basic laws that protect against murder, theft and fraud. However, that kind of classical liberal ideal must be considered very primitive and inadequate for those who intend to force their standards on people globally.
