March 22, 2024 | The Right to Grow Food

Martin Armstrong

Martin Arthur Armstrong is current chairman and founder of Armstrong Economics. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.


Republican Representative Thomas Massie is presenting an amendment to the US Constitution that would ensure Americans have the legal right to grow and distribute their own food.

“The right of the people to grow food and purchase food from the source of their choice shall not be infringed, and Congress shall make no law regulating the production and distribution of food products which do not move across state lines.”

“The food or farm freedom movement is really bipartisan,” Massie said. “Many consumers care not only about the safety of their food but also how it was raised. Neither party has a monopoly on healthiness, if you will, and in general this food is healthier.”

There have been calls to ban private gardening in the name of climate change. The World Economic Forum has already begun producing articles and planting the seed that the public should begin to accept the idea that food cannot be grown by individuals.

The elites want complete control over our food supply. They have already implemented numerous regulations to prevent people from hunting and fishing. Now, they demand that we peasants cease gardening at home and use studies they are funding as examples.

They’ve banned the people from producing their own food under countless Communist regimes, and it ALWAYS leads to famine. Look at North Korea, for example, where private citizens are barred from harvesting their own food and must entirely rely on the government for sustenance. Despite having the same genetics, people in South Korea are now taller and larger than their northern brothers and sisters as a direct result of malnutrition.

Maine passed a law on November 3, 2021, protecting the right to a “natural, inherent, and unalienable right to food, including the right to save and exchange seeds and the right to grow, raise, harvest, produce, and consume the food of their own choosing for their own nourishment, sustenance, bodily health, and well-being, as long as an individual does not commit trespassing, theft, poaching, or other abuses of private property rights, public lands, or natural resources in the harvesting, production, or acquisition of food.

Maine’s amendment was the first of its kind in America. The Maine Dairy Industry Association and the Maine Farm Bureau protested the measure under the pretense of food safety. As RFK recently said, every single restriction on our freedom has happened under the pretense of public safety.

Have you ever wondered why the government has prohibited cities from growing trees that naturally produce fruit? We have the ability to feed the masses but choose not to do so. City developers banned such trees for a reason.

People should absolutely have the right to live off the Earth. History has shown us time and time again what happens when the government controls the food supply.
