How new technology will end homelessness in Ireland

category international | miscellaneous | news report author Friday February 03, 2017 12:33author by Mack MacThomais Report this post to the editors

New advances in 3D printing technology will end food shortages and artificial land scarcity created by mono culture and conventional farming.

The recent census taken shows an alarming land distribution fact.Almost 50% of Ireland's limited landscape is owned by 10% of the population. The reasons given for this onesided dynamic is farming and food security.This has created a land scarcity which has seen thousands of Irish families without homes or land to feed themselves which was the prime fundamental at the centre of every uprising in Ireland since the 15th century. A new technological innovation in science is set to put an end to land agitation ,extortionate food price hikes and offers the opportunity of food security for all .

Food prices have increased in Ireland by 40 % since 2007.This compares to 15 % on the European continent. Combined with annual subsidies and grant allocations our land in the republic is failing to provide food security and prices in keeping with inflation. The reasons continually put forward for this shortcoming is never mismanagement but geography and as an island people we are restricted as to what can be achieved with our finite resources. The reality is we no longer have farmers but machine drivers,we no longer have land commission but corporation ,we therefore have a shortage of land and cannot house the people whom ancestors fought for it. We do however now finally have an an alternate solution that will go some way to changing this centuries old dynamic which is still steeped in the dark ages and feudal mindset.

The emergence of 3D Bio printing has seen successful implants of animal DNA into yeast to produce any dairy product without the bacteria,hormones,animal suffering ,MRSA sweeping our hospitals and most importantly the theft of our land by a handful of machine drivers whom export the majority of the food produced and charge us in taxes to pay pay them subsidies to keep our land from the people.

This era of land attrition is coming to an end and it would be interesting to get the publics viewpoints on how they will feel about having such technology available in every county in Ireland. Seven billion people worldwide are no better off under globalisation and mono culture which was to end starvation worldwide. We can imagine ourselves better off in a republic in the 21 century however as bad as the landlordism of the 18 and 19 the century were we could house and feed ourselves without asking for permissions or permits.

Any innovation to restore the land of Ireland to the Irish people is most welcome and to end the current status quo where one group have grabbed all the land and can't make it work and another minority group have grabbed the market and can't make it work and are clearly on a crash collision course as the population of Ireland increases. As for the remaining 2.1 million Irish citizens whom have seen these two groups disenfranchise and squander our children's inheritance if 3D Bio Printing Food Technology ends their tyranny and oppression it is as welcome as the French were to the people in 1798. .

So this will "put an end to land agitation?" no technology can do that! exorbitant food prices are not due to the technology being used - it is due to uneven wealth distribution and access to resources, never mind profit orientated, as opposed to needs based, production.

Will '3D bio printing' be any less wastelful than current mass agriculture, where and under what circumstances are these printers who will 'feed everyone' be produced, where do the raw materials come from?

what about land being used to frack, for industrial production, mining and buring fossil fuels to produce electricity to run your '3D Printers?' where does the plastic, precious metals come from?

sounds like a plug of some technology you're invested in in some way or another

and what's with irish land for the irish? not everyone on this island identifies as irish and they have as equal right to the resources as anyone who does
