ZURICH (ChurchMilitant.com) - Children in Switzerland are being used as guinea pigs at the hands of a conglomeration of companies that sell bugs for human consumption.
Students in a middle school outside Zurich, the country's largest city, were recently presented with an array of finger foods made up of insects, according to a recent article in The Wall Street Journal.
Their entomological feast represents part of a larger, multi-year campaign to train children to eat bugs as part of the so-called Great Reset's dietary plan.
"They are young, more open to novelty," noted Timothée Oliver, the purveyor of bug foods for Swiss Insects, an association of companies supporting the consumption of insects.
Channeling communist Vladimir Lenin — who famously said, "Give me just one generation of youth, and I'll transform the whole world" — Oliver predicted, "At some point, if not tomorrow then later, they will include insects in their diet."
Children in the experiment responded like children.
"It doesn't taste like a bug," said one who crunched into a cricket. "It just tastes like what it's seasoned with."
When she bit into chili-pepper mealworms she gagged, "Blech!"
Switzerland has been at the forefront of pushing edible bugs and in 2017 became the first country in Europe to allow insects to be sold for human consumption, namely, flour worms (tenebrio molitor), adult crickets (acheta domesticus) and adult European migratory locusts (locusta migratoria).
The European Union followed Switzerland in 2021.
For years, the Switzerland-based World Economic Forum (WEF) — the self-appointed administrator of the Great Reset — has been pushing for the consumption of insects as part of its climate change agenda.
The WEF claims "eating insects could reduce climate change," because edible insects:
For those who might be hesitant to consume insects, the WEF adds, "You can start small and work your way up."
In a 2018 article, "Good grub: why we might be eating insects soon," the WEF cites research claiming bug-eating has financial advantages for mega-global companies, like those that are part of the Swiss Insects conglomeration. The research predicts "the global market for edible insects could grow to $1.18 billion by 2023."
There has been increased pushback, however, against the globalists' insect agenda.
Hungary recently passed laws to protect citizens from insect use in food. Minister of Agriculture István Nagy announced on social media that his nation is now requiring foods containing insect protein to have the warning label: "Caution! The food contains insect protein!"
In Italy, the populist government of Giorgia Meloni has also made moves to ban the use of insect protein in flour produced for pasta and pizza to safeguard traditional Italian cuisine.
There's noise being made against the insect agenda in France, too, with French senator and farmer, Laurent Duplomb, blasting "elites for pushing insects on the plebs while not indulging themselves."
"This European Commission — which gives in to anti-meat lobbies and which undermines our agriculture and our gastronomic culture — I don't want it anymore!" he said. "I invite those who wish to eat crickets to come and eat them directly in my meadows: They will be natural, whole, unground and unprocessed!"
All this points to the even more vulnerable situation of children, who not only have insects being shoved down their throats in controlled school environments to promote the Great Reset, but also are being used as guinea pigs in determining how best to implement it.
To do that, as the Wall Street Journal cynically puts it, the insect-eating "industry is recruiting consumers whose tastes are still in the larval state."
