It has this dystopian story and movie “Soylent Green” feel to everything. Just in case you are too young or don’t remember the movie. From Wikipedia.

“Soylent Green is a 1973 American ecological dystopian thriller film directed by Richard Fleischer, and starring Charlton Heston, Leigh Taylor-Young, and Edward G. Robinson in his final film role. It is loosely based on the 1966 science-fiction novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison, with a plot that combines elements of science fiction and a police procedural. The story follows a murder investigation in a dystopian future of dying oceans and year-round humidity caused by the greenhouse effect, with the resulting pollution, depleted resources, poverty, and overpopulation.”

At the end of the movie, it’s learned that there is no longer life in the oceans, and that they are dying. That the staple food “Soylent Green” is made from people. They are literally eating themselves, because there is nothing else left.

We are living through a time much like that told by Harry Harrison, where the value of a person was, and is worth next to nothing. In fact, there is an industry vested in making that happen. Financed by those I call the Cons, these well-financed institutions, organizations, and foundations whose sole purpose is to in one form or another enslave those that are seen as little more than pawns in their game of thrones. Little more than raw material for their version of soylent green.

From Cnn, some of the organizations leading the fight to turn us into soylent green, without power, and without a voice.

“Heritage Action for America, the political arm of the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank, has publicly committed to spending at least $10 million to “secure and strengthen state election systems.” And guidelines sent out earlier this year by the Heritage Foundation – including extending identification requirements to absentee voting and barring third-party groups from collecting voters’ absentee ballots – have emerged in bills now racing through the Legislature in Georgia and other statehouses.”

From the same article

“Organizations ranging from the libertarian-leaning advocacy group FreedomWorks to the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List also have jumped into the voting rights battle this year.”

“The involvement of national groups shows that efforts to restrict voting in dozens of states “are not a coincidence,” said Hillary Holley, organizing director of the Georgia-based voting rights group Fair Fight Action. “This is a strategic imperative that’s well-funded.”

From “The Guardian”
Honest Elections Project, part of network that pushed Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, is now focusing on voting restrictions

“The organization, which calls itself the Honest Elections Project, seemed to emerge out of nowhere a few months ago and started stoking fears about voter fraud. Backed by a dark money group funded by rightwing stalwarts like the Koch brothers and Betsy DeVos’ family, the Honest Elections Project is part of the network that pushed the US Supreme Court picks Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, and is quickly becoming a juggernaut in the escalating fight over voting rights.”

Or as they said in “Soylent Green”, “The scoops are coming, the scoops are coming.”
