It seems like there's a new outrage every week from one of the two Left Coasts in this country, so much so that maybe I'll start a new award: the "Outrage of the Week" to go along with the "High Octane Speculation Of The Day." This one was spotted by B.H.: Washington state, it seems, has approved a bill which has been signed into law by that state's governor, to allow "human composting":
Now, believe it or not, there's a certain part of this bill that gained my approving attention, and it was this:
“I am very much in favor of the composting of human bodies!” declared Wes McMahan, a retired cardiovascular intensive-care nurse who recently testified in support of the bill.
“When I’m done with this body that served me very well for the past 64 years, do I want to poison it with formaldehyde and other embalming chemicals? No,” he added. “Burned? Not my first choice. But what about all the bacteria I’ve worked with so long in this body – do I want to give them a chance to do what they do naturally? I believe in doing things as naturally as possible.”
Now, as far as it goes, I'm all for the natural decay of the body, and not pumping it full of formaldehyde. In fact, being eastern Orthodox, this is the tradition: burial in a box, without embalming (pay attention relatives!). In this respect the tradition is very similar to that of orthodox Judaism, complete with forty-day memorial (again: pay attention relatives!).
But this being modern day "Amair'kuh" one has come to expect that behind any story such as this there lurks a bit of lunacy disguised as "concern for the environment," and in this I wasn't disappointed. However, first, let us note that the Republiwimps joined the Looneycrats so that in this case the lunacy has bipartisan support. With that on the record, let us now note - hearts aflutter - how one person enthused about the development, and in doing so, perhaps gave away a bit of the game:
Katrina Spade, the founder and CEO of a company known as Recompose that aspires to be the first “natural organic reduction” funeral home in the United States, is also excited about the bill, which she says fulfills “a longtime hope” of hers to create “an urban, soil-based, ecologically friendly death-care option.” (Emphasis added)
There you have it: "an ecologically friendly death-care option." In other words, you're compost - perhaps - for urban organic farming? "Wait a minute," I thought as I read that. "You mean, you're not simply going to put me in a pine box and dump me in the ground and let things proceed slowly and naturally?"
Many other supporters of the bill claim that legalizing human composting will be great for the environment, as it’s supposedly “as close to the natural process of decomposition [as] you’d assume a body would undergo before we had an industrialized society.”
But is it really a good idea to spread liquid sludge made from dead humans all over our food crops? Because that’s exactly where much of it will go, especially when “liquid cremation” ends up being flushed down the drain or toilet and into the local sewer system.
As revealed in the Biosludged film, wastewater all across the country is now being “recycled” and spread all over farmland, which means whatever’s in it is being absorbed into the food supply.
If America now begins “recycling” human beings as liquid rather than simply burying bodies or cremating them into ash, as has traditionally been the case, then these remains will almost certainly end up being converted into recycled “biosludge” and spread as “fertilizer” on food crops.
We already know that this is part of the plan, as folks like McMahan are actually excited about the prospect of creating “food forests” with human compost – “so my grandchildren will know where food comes from,” he contends.
It’s true that traditional burial protocols aren’t necessarily environmentally-friendly, seeing as how embalming fluids and formaldehyde are made from toxic, synthetic chemicals. But human bodies, especially in today’s toxic world, are also poisonous, and loaded with all sorts of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other poisons that probably shouldn’t be “repurposed” to help grow the foods we all eat.
“Releasing mercury, pharmaceuticals, and disease into the water supply. Sounds like a great idea, what could possibly go wrong?” joked one commenter at The Seattle Times.
"Biosludge," they're calling it.
I call it biolunacy, enviroidiocy, bipartisan biobipolar disorder. Insanity. Take your pick.
Let's do a bit of high octane speculation to see why. Firstly, did you notice any citation of an inter-generational environmental or human-health impact study? No? Well, I guess that's because if we can throw genetically modified seeds into the ground without any inter-generational environmental or human-health impact study, we might as well keep I.G. Farbensanto happy, and irrigate it with human "biosludge." It will save money, and be yet another glorious example of progress. And we'll know it's a "Good Idea" if the Chinese start doing it. It could become another megaindustry for I.G. Farbensanto, which could learn how to dehydrate the biosludge, put it in big bags, and ship it all over the world. Just add water, and stir. And just wait for the "biosludge 'industry'" to hookup with the abortion-eugenics "industry": after all the needed body parts have been harvested and sold, why, infanto-genocide can be "marketed" with all the appropriate whining "concern" as both being environmentally friendly and a way to increase crop yields!
Question Two: With that in mind, ask yourself this: how long will it be before whole segments of the population, ingesting their GMO vegetables irrigated with biosludge, develop spongioform encephalopathies of one form or another? Is that a real possibility? Well, I don't know, but I don't know because those pesky intergenerational environmental and human health impact studies were either done in secret and the results have been kept secret (gee, I wonder why) or they haven't been done at all (see question one above). But I suspect the possibility is there: just look at cannibalistic cultures which, indeed, do have a kind of "biosludge" approach to their favorite cuisine (stew, after all, is not all that far from biosludge).
Question Three, and this one is for me the clincher, and it comes in three parts: (a) do you think the "elite" will eat crops grown with biosludge? If so, why? If not, why not? (For myself, I rather strongly suspect biosludge cranberry sauce will not be served on the Queen's Christmas dinner). (b) Will this have any negative impact on America's international ability to sell its agricultural products? I rather suspect it might, as I don't see it conforming very well to the Islamic world's halal laws, and - wait for it - (c) who will step up and fill the non-biosludge agricultural void? Watch for Russia and a few other countries to ban and outlaw the idea for their agriculture, and to thereby fill the void.
Allow me to state my opinion clearly: this is a bad, sick, disgusting idea. The insanity and lack of thought, not to mention the utter immorality, could only have been dreamed up and packaged as a good idea in modern Amair'kuh, because it is, when all is said and done, another hustle.
Cannibalism comes to Amair'kuh. Soylent Green...
See you on the flip side...
