Raw Milk – Let ME Decide What Is Dangerous or Not

In Minnesota, several lawmakers are trying to make it easier to purchase raw or unpasteurized milk (yay for representatives making laws to re-create a free market).  Big Dairy (large conglomerates of the food machine that seeks to not allow people to make free choices about what they eat or do not eat) is apparently fighting this.

Believe it or not, modern pasteurization as a process is relatively new in the scheme of human existence (late 1800’s).  That means that for THOUSANDS of years people were consuming raw milk.  Hmmm…

So, if I decide that I like raw milk – I should be able to consume it.  Just like if I would like to consume chocolate, or beer, or lawn clippings for that matter.  I, being an independent and “free” American should be able to make choices about what I do or do not put into my body.  And, I don’t want anyone protecting me from that OR forcing me to be protected.  That is simply wrong.

I believe in the powers of raw milk because I have consumed it for over three years.  I am not afraid of it because I KNOW the people who produce it, that is the best type of check and balance one can have with food – KNOW WHO GREW IT, RAISED IT, OR MADE IT.  Simple.

So, in a perfect world (which I create in my head every morning), people would learn about what they are eating and government would stay out of the process.  Yes, some regulations are absolutely necessary, however, even with all of the protections we already have, there are slip-ups and mistakes and people who get sick and die.  That is a process of life, and we need to understand that – we are human.

And, as a human being exercising a free will to as I like with my body, brain, and soul – I can tell you that raw milk should be able to be bought and sold where we the people demand it.

To Stop Acting in Fear

Many civilizations have acted in fear and many people in positions of power have used fear to get what they want.

The very proposition that fear should be a part of making a decision is against human nature.  We, as humans, are not born with any sense of fear, our sense of fear is understood as we grow, mature, and learn.

What do decisions made in fear do?  I would argue that they cause us to make irrational decisions – against what is best for our own well-being as well as society as a whole.  Just imagine, if you weren’t scared of anything – what would you do?

I don’t want to be scared of our money supply.  I don’t want to be scared that I won’t have health care, social security, a retirement, a job, a life.  I don’t want to act in fear and I don’t want people in positions of power, whether corporations, insurance agencies, or our own federal government, to try to scare me into having them make decisions for me.  Acting in fear creates bad decisions.  If I was not fearful of my life in 20-30 years, and if I knew I had a sound money supply to work with, then anyone at any level “taking care of me” would seem obtuse.  It was not a hundred years ago that we were not too far from being relatively self-reliant souls and about 200 years ago that fought off an empire that was attempting to keep people in serfdom via their money supply and taxes.  So why should I be so scared now?

To the great people of this great country, we should not act in fear.  I know there are plenty of people who have faith, who have love, who have hope, who can say that they believe in the betterment of mankind – starting with themselves, their families, and their communities.  We can do this by not acting in fear.  Do not be afraid of the problems that we face – each of us, as individuals and each of us united with our fellow statesmen – have the power to create our destiny.  We will not be afraid and we will find solutions that work, that create peace and prosperity for generations to come.
