“Everyone must prepare for new hunger-extermination”, Monterey Herald – April 2, 2022
On April 12, 2021, I explained in a Herald letter, “When the Ukraine was disarmed and starved, historians recall what happened: Holodomor (hunger-extermination). This was a loss of 3 million people — due to government policy. In the United States, based on proportional population figures, that would be about 33 million per year. Fortunately, more people than that are armed in the USA. The Second Amendment is a preventative against a future Holodomor.”
We must also be wary of having standing armies, and we need to establish energy and food independence.
On Feb. 23, 2022, the Ukrainian Parliament adopted a law for open carry of firearms. This was cheered by U.S. Congress members who voted to allocate 6.5 billion dollars for U.S. troops and weapons for Ukraine. Yet we still await a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court in NYSRPA v. Bruen, which may strike down unconstitutional “proper cause” and “may issue” standards before July nationwide.
Russia and Ukraine provide one-third of the world’s wheat and barley exports. Russia cut off its fertilizer exports. Ukraine recently banned all its food exports. Everyone must be prepared for a new Holodomor that will impact many nations.
