K.M. spotted this story about Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signing a bill into law making lab-grown meat illegal and a misdemeanor in Alabama, and it’s worth nothing because it represents, I suspect, a trend. We’ll get back to that idea and my high octane speculation in a moment, but first the story itself:

There’s an intriguing clue in this article as to what may really be going on behind the scenes, and behind the promoters of “laboratory-cultured meat,” for notice that the proponents of the idea are making it about freedom and the climate/environment:


The decision to ban cultivated meat is still controversial, with proponents of lab-grown products arguing that bans inhibit innovation and consumer choice. Some users on Reddit call the move “anti-free market,” while others argue that cultivated meats may provide a more environmentally sound option than traditional means of raising livestock for meat. However, a recent study by the University of California Davis suggests that lab-grown meat’s carbon footprint may currently be worse than retail beef.

I strongly suspect that this is a clue as to the change of tactics, but first, let me lay all my cards on the table: I also strongly suspect that the real goal of laboratory-cultured “meat” has been, from the beginning, about achieving several goals: (1) driving traditional livestock farmers and ranchers out of business, (2) gaining thereby a concentrated food supply in relatively few corporate hands that manufacture “meat-like products”, and (3) using the latter like GMO crops as a means of remaking or engineering the human biosphere and body itself.  It is thus, on my view, decidedly not about “freedom” or “the environment.” To that end I suspect that somewhere along the line we should expect subsidization of meat-growing laboratories to make their products “cheaper” than the standard livestock meat products in order to drive the latter out of business.  Interestingly, as the article itself admits, the University of California-Davis questions the whole environment-friendliness of laboratory-cultured meat.

What intrigues me about this story, however, is none of this, but rather that the Alabama bill appears to be coupled to that signed just a few days earlier by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. While the old adage is “two is a coincidence, and three is a pattern,” in this case the close timing of the two events suggests some degree of coordination taking place between states, and it is interesting to note that in these case of these states we have other signs of “state revolt,” such as elimination of sales tax on bullion and specie, state laws excluding crypto-currency or central bank “digital ‘currency’” from the definition of money or legal tender, and so on.

So look what we now have on the growing list of state-led pushback: the money supply, and the food supply, and in both instances we have indications of state wanting to preserve traditional understandings and definitions of both.  That implies, to my mind, some deep level of coordination is occurring behind these state efforts. Networks are being created, ideas exchanged, lists of necessary projects and tasks are being made. From Florida to Friesland, farmers are revolting, and the real enemies, most importantly, are being recognized.

So what’s the next step? This is where we indulge in our high octane speculation of the day: lawfare is a game two or more can play, so what happens when those states, and their attorneys-general, or even local district attorneys, start going after the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and foundations that have been funding the social and cultural mayhem of recent years, going after them under their state RICO statutes in their own versions of lawfare? It could get to the point that some sort of real justice might actually result from such lawfare, as the ne’er-do-wells lose the fortunes they use to fund their activities and mayhem, either through having to defend themselves, or face the confiscation of those assets.
