Global Famine: The Lords of Capital Decree Mass Death by Starvation

Politicians who have some vested interest in biofuels can spin and lie about ethanol and biodiesel, but the fact remains large corporations are literally taking food out of people's mouths and driving up the cost of the food that remains.
Having crushed the planet's peasants and converted food into just another commodity for global manipulation, the Lord's of Capital have unleashed upon humanity the threat - no, certainty - of mass starvation. The criminal mega-enterprise is centered in the United States, the former "breadbasket of the planet" whose massive conversion to biofuels has caused staple crop prices to skyrocket beyond the reach of hundreds of millions of the world's poor. The death of millions translates into profits in the trillions for the Lords of Capital, killers on a mass scale whose only talents lie in "the production of overlapping calamities, each more lethal than the last."

"No amount of emergency aid is sufficient to make up for the wild price rises that have already occurred."
