New World Last Week

05/01/202333 Comments

Let me guess: you're sitting there in your Corbett Report T-shirt and your (brand spanking new) Media Monarchy baseball cap with your beverage of choice by your side, constantly refreshing The Corbett Report home page in the vain hope that the latest edition of New World Next Week will suddenly appear, right?

In fact, you're beginning to wonder if you'll have to turn to a fake AI "news source" to find out what's going on in the world if James and James don't appear on your screen soon, aren't you?

And now you're getting agitated: "I mean, are they even anarchists?!"

OK, first of all: breathe. It's going to be alright.

Having said that, I do have two pieces of bad news for you:

1) James and I are in the middle of a two-week New World Next Week hiatus;


2) You clearly didn't catch the end of last week's episode where we explained all this.

But trust me, I get it. It's a weird, confusing world out there, and it's nice to have a couple of friendly faces breaking it all down for you with their trademark wit, insight and humour, isn't it?

OK, here's what I can do for you. In this week's editorial I'll go through three news stories from around the world—stories that very well could have (would have?) been covered on New World Next Week if we were producing an episode this week—and I'll break them down for you the same way I would have on the de-program.


Great. Now, enough chit-chat! Let's go!

    I don’t appreciate the saracasm at the beginning of this article. If you both can’t work non-stop througout the year and sync your diametric time-zone schedules to provide me a solid half hour of dissident content 52 weeks out of the year, then I don’t know why I’m donating 100 Yen monthly for.
    Perhaps it is to be able to post snide and sarcastic comments myself as a site member…
    Oh, well. I guess I have to read, now, instead of having words spoken to me through earbuds like I typically consume NWNW. Thanks, James (but not that slacker James).

    • CRM (Celtic Ricardo Montalbán) says:

      Maybe I’m U.S.-centric (like all Americans), but this podcast discussion scares and infuriates the fuck out of me. I’m sure NWNW has covered the Whitmer developments, but it’s Goldstein-Orwellian af, and I think more of a spotlight needs to be continually shone on these types of dystopian, federal law-enforcemnt frame-ups and entrapment schemes and modus operandi:
      Kidnap and Kill: an FBI Terror Plot, a New Documentary about the Whitmer Kidnapping Plot with Christina Radum Verix.
      William Ramsey Investigates podcast

      That was a good conversation with you and Keith Knight recently regarding statistics and tragedies of global conflicts and conflagrations, too, James.

    Regarding story #1, there were interesting comments on this subject during the most recent DarkHorse podcast (#171 I believe for which the dyslexyc host erroneously thougth was a prime number so I remembered it). Namely, they figure that what happened with Carlson signals the end of the era in which companies have profit as their prime directive.

    Fox recently cashed out that demonoid settlement and now they knowingly (they must have known what they were doing) shot themselves in the foot by cancelling, but still not firing if I understand correctly, their most popular host. Share price drops inevitably followed.

    So this got me thinking about what, if not profit, will drive companies? Control? It is already happening to an extent with all the mandate garbage recently, with people being fired and disabled or killed with jabs etc. Now this seems to be even more in the open, the funny money god is wearing less and less clothes. Will people start to notice?

    Regarding story #3 what I find most unsettling is the idea the state will take over the remains and hand the composted remains back to family. We are not even allowed to deal with the remains of our family members the way we see fit. Control from craddle to grave and beyond, isn’t it?

    • lotusblossom says:

      The book Superclass mentions how they just want to keep control. I just started reading Wealth and Democracy and the intro already pointed in that direction.

  3. TimmyTaes says:

    Who in their right mind names their kid “Lachlan”? In school, we’d call that guy “Lack Man”. “He lacks a dick. He lacks a brain. He lacks any reason to get to know him if he is a “him”.”
    And who names their kid “Tucker”? I live on Tucker Street. People name their dogs “Tucker”. “Tucker Fucker. Tucker Sucker. Tucker Ass-Pucker.”
    I don’t give a shit about these big money guys.

  4. ClintTorrez says:

    Hi James, as always, thank you for everything you do!
    As far as Tuck “Everlasting” Carlson goes, I believe that he may be being artificially, publicly dethroned so that he will fill the void and play the more thoroughly coopted role of top Alternative media Icon that Alex Jones has left in order to lead the masses of disenfranchised sheep into the next pasture of hope, change and faux enlightenment as an enlarged, super-sized “unlimited hangout”. The pre-selection timing may be the indicator as there should be enough time for Carlson to set up shop in the role of partial truths sayer as he lulls the somnambulists with awes of not so shocking reveals. I would imagine that the Murdochs would not waste such a valuable media assest as he shifts his role and bent. This is just the next phase of ownership and servitude.

    • G. Jingping says:

      Your theory, which I suspect is true, reminds me of the “firing” of Timothy Leary from Harvard in order to burnish his counter-culture credentials. Harvard had no plans to fire the CIA funded acid guru, but a decision was made, probably with input from Leary, that it would look good. Jan Irvin of LogosMedia is a good source for more info on Leary.

  5. lotusblossom says:

    I got ripped off. NWNW lasts half an hour and it took me 10 minutes to read this article. I want my money back, lol.

    Thanks for the article, James. We got something to replace the NWNW fix we craved.

  6. cu.h.j says:

    I need to download the mass media course soon. I’ll have time in the next week. I think it will be very eye opening and good for my mind.

    I think the gist of this great article is that people have to start being active in the real world and doing things to stop what’s unfolding around us and not look to leaders to do it for us.

    As far as people looking up to others and putting people on pedestals, that might be a natural tendency. I’ve never really given that a lot of deep thought. I think it has something to do with empathy and rooting for a perceived underdog.

    Tucker isn’t going to lose any money over getting fired and could have his own media company. Maybe it is some limited hangout operation, or some pied piper psyop like the Qanon thing or to get people back into the political system and thinking that voting in national elections does anything at this point. I’m not sure.

    Or maybe Tucker changed his mind. He was very outspoken against the Covid lockdowns. This was surprising to me that this was actually on a major outlet. I watched clips on youtube. I think his show is even on bitchute and odysee. I don’t have a TV or watch TV, but will occasionally watch something on youtube or one of the other platforms if it’s interesting.

    He did have Catherine Austin Fitts on his show. I’m not sure what his views are on 9/11 are anymore, but in the past was very condescending towards 9/11 skeptics and made other comments that were very off-putting. I guess people have to use critical thinking when viewing anything and do their own research. Someone having a parent who is a deep state actor in and of itself does not necessarily mean the other person is also a sociopath. They could be, but not necessarily. Guilt by association can be wrong sometimes.

    The compost story is strange. I mean cremation doesn’t require any additionally processing and then the family can do what they want with the remains. I think there are laws on the books about where they can be buried which is stupid and controlling, but who’s checking? I have remains of relatives that were cremated and have carried out what they wanted to have done. But I can see the anti-human overtones and it’s good to be on the look out and oppose those ideas.

  7. southamerica says:

    How come no mention of the fact that AMLO was Magalufi-ed?

    What an amazing coincidence that right after those two CU Next Tuesday tyrants were down here for a ‘Nafta summit’, right after AMLO says a hard no to GMOs, right after he applies to BRICs, he “Vanishes” for a couple of days then comes back from a C84+ (Covcrap 1984 positive) event.

    How odd that his facial features look distinctly pliant now, perhaps he was mistakenly given some gender-affirming care on the side.

    • Jetmab says:

      Yeah or, maybe a bit of MK-Ultra which in some of our “fine” western hemisphere seem to have become a “brand new” invention – the fact that exact same torture method was condemned by the population of our planet years ago, doesn’t seem to matter – members of the W.E.F. just have to let their brain dead spittle fly in all directions..???

      In short, we agree!

  8. Steve Smith says:

    The only problem I have with the human body composting idea is that the state believes it has the authority to oversee and regulate the process.
    If I had anyone I could count on to simply bury me in a nice spot and plant a tree on my grave I would be very happy.

    For most of human history bodies have simply been buried. Or in other words composted. Elements and molecules have been recycled through myriad life forms, both animal and vegetable since the Fall.
    We’ve been eating each other since we started dying.
    Why people’s reaction to having bodies turned into soil would be “UGH” is a mystery to me.

    Who doesn’t have the uncasketed, unembalmed, carcass of a beloved pet or two buried somewhere in the garden? Is there a difference between the flesh of a dead dog or cat or goldfish and your grandma Gladys?

    As I mentioned, I don’t like the state putting itself into the position of granting permission to or denying permission from people about how to deal with their loved ones bodies after death. Or anything else for that matter.
    Still, this proposal doesn’t offend my sensibilities in the slightest and is perhaps a small step towards rationality.

    • JCh129 says:

      I couldn’t agree with this comment more. I’ve been wanting my remains composted when I die for 10+ years, ever since I got hooked on the practice of building compost piles for my garden. Embalming fluid is a toxic nasty destructive chemical thats absolutely devastating to the environment and ground water and other than allowing for a delayed funeral with no putrid smell it serves absolutely no purpose. If you believe that our bodies are meant to be returned to the natural building blocks of nature and reusued for future living organisms then what better way to facilitate this than with composting. I really don’t understand why people find this idea repulsive. I personally find both traditional embalming and cremation repulsive and would love the option to be composted. Maybe theres an alternative motive behind this idea but I really don’t see what that could be.

    • Gavinm says:


      Well said, I agree about the state getting involved and about the inevitability of ingesting molecules that were once part of another human being’s body (and that is true whether people were/are buried in a box or incinerated in a oven or burned on a viking boat or any of the other typical funeral ceremonies).

      I think it would be cool to have my body put into a heavy duty deep inverted hugelkultur and then ask some friends to plant something sturdy and long lived like a Douglas Fir, White Pine, Wild Kazakh apple tree (malus sieversii) or a Gingko tree on top (in my experience those trees seem to really appreciate being planted in top of deep hugelkulturs).

      I like the idea of my bones ending up feeding trees that would provide habitat, medicine, beauty and food to many other beings (I am working hard to give these bones all the best minerals and stimulus to be solid, I want them to be put to good use when I am done using them to get around! 🙂 )

    • I have spent many years trying to avoid intentionally putting toxins in my body and I do not want to be “embalmed.” Nor do I want to be cremated. Nor do I want to “be composted” in two months by people I don’t know trying to make money for their “service.”

      I would just like my body to be put in a simple pine box (not plywood) and buried. Maybe a large boulder engraved with my name and dates and some berry bushes or a fruit tree nearby … but not right on top of my spot. Nature will take its course at its own rate. No assistance needed.

      The difference between the flesh of the goldfish, dog, or cat and grandma is that grandma’s body will be resurrected. But you know that. 🙂

      And I do think that treating a body with dignity and honor is a way to show respect for humanity in general and for that person in particular. It seems to me that neither cremation nor composting show honor for humanity or people. Embalming is dishonoring in a different way, but many don’t know of any other option than cremation, which I find extremely distasteful.

        @the lilac dragonfly

        Grandma gets resurrected but not ‘Spot’ the dog? That hardly seems fair. If Creator is handing out resurrection tickets, why not include our four legged friends (and all the other good hearted beings that chose to life a good life on Earth, or elsewhere)?

        Isn’t that a Jehovah’s Witness thing? (the whole humans get ‘resurrected’ for a 1000 years after ‘Armageddon’ thing)? Or am I thinking of the wrong dogmatic religious belief system?

        I suppose “dignity and honor” is subjective and specific to cultural, religious and personal preferences. For me, treating my body differently than a goldfish or a cat would be an act of hubris and condescension (an act that declares I think I am more important and more deserving than other beings that are part of Creation).

        Thus, according to my own perspective (which I think Steve has described as “The Religion” or “Church” of “Photosynthesis Of The Soul” in the past 🙂 ) treating my body as different (more deserving of special ceremonies) than that of my fellow non-human beings on Earth would be the antithesis of “dignity and honor”.

        Also, I am curious, why not a tree planted right on top but a big stone is okay? Is that just a personal taste thing or religion related? That distinction perplexes me.

        • I am not familiar with what jehovahs witnesses believe. I try to just stick with what Tanach and the Messianic Writings teach, which I believe are God’s Word. According to the Scriptures, humans were created in the image of God and were given the responsibility to be stewards of God’s creation. (We are doing a terrible job of it.) Humans ARE different from other creatures. We were created with the capacity to have a relationship with God. The scriptures say that humans will be resurrected. Nothing is said about animals living for eternity, so I can’t say they won’t, but God didn’t mention it in the writings He gave us.

          I meant a big stone nearby, like a headstone, as well as berry bushes or a fruit tree nearby. Although it might be in the middle of the woods, so I’m not sure how well bushes or trees would grow. 🙂 That is just my preference, I suppose partly because of what I’m familiar with in this culture.

          Where I live and own property, we are “allowed” to be buried on our own property, although it’s not “recommended,” I was told, because family then has the right to have access to the spot even if the property is sold, which some people might not like.

          As Steve says, I don’t think the state needs to tell us what we can or can’t do.

          • Gavinm says:

            @the lilac dragonfly

            Ah okay, well thanks for the info on the “Tanach and the Messianic Writings” side of things.

            I like big stones, the idea of a big interesting stone near my hypothetical burial Hugelkultur is growing on me now 🙂

            Perhaps a stone with several varieties of lichen growing on it (incase you missed it, here are some of the reasons I love lichen )

            Thanks for sharing your perspective, cultural views and preferences. I like the idea of your envisioned resting place, though here in southern Ontario we are so lacking in trees and forests I would like to at least offer the molecules in my body to help accelerate the regeneration if at all possible, so I like the idea of a big tree planted right where it can draw sustenance from the molecules and atoms Creator, my mother and I have gathered together to make/maintain this body to offer myself to something that will stand tall for at least a few centuries ( providing habitat, medicine, beauty and food to many other beings, before it also, one day, gives itself back to the Earth from once it came).

            I am curious to learn more about the pine box part. Why pay (or have someone pay) someone to cut down a tree (or several) just to put one’s body inside the planks, only to have them decompose shortly after anyways? (shortly in terms relative to the lifespan of more ancient beings than us humans)

            I appreciate you taking the time to reply and I hope your hard work in your garden results in abundant harvests in both nourishment for the body and poetry for the senses this year and beyond.

            • Pine box…

              Since you say your area is deficient in trees, I can understand the question. 🙂

              I have recently contacted a logger who (I hope) will soon come to start cutting trees. Two of the first projects are taking down about 30+ huge pine trees in two locations on the property. Pines are plentiful and cheap and might as well be put to good use before they rot and/or fall over … possibly on a greenhouse I want to put in one of those areas. I know people with portable sawmills, and there are also locals mills not far away where I could take logs (or have them taken) for milling.

              Pine is readily available, cheap, natural, and non-toxic – unlike the caskets that people spend thousands of dollars on that are made of who-knows-what and painted, etc.

              I have heard of pine box burial for years. I think it’s an old-fashioned (American) tradition. Daniel Boone built his own and slept in it for years, to save people the trouble of having to put him in if he died in his sleep – at least that’s what I read. 🙂

              I wasn’t planning on milling any of these pines for a pine box, although I was thinking of keeping some of the logs to possibly have milled for other projects. I will need flooring for the yurt I am hoping to get built soon and there are always things to build around here. Pine is easy to work with, light, and easy to cut. Pine logs are also good garden borders. Because of the pitch, they stay intact for quite a while.

              Interesting tidbit: I have read that as long as pine stays wet, it will not rot. Pine used to be used for water pipes. They were made in 8’ lengths and a hole was bored through from each end with a 4’ auger. A good pipe maker could match up the holes perfectly in the middle. The ends of the wooden sections were tapered to fit each other and put in a trench and covered with dirt. They would last nearly indefinitely as long as there was always water in them.

                @the lilac dragonfly

                Thanks for the in depth response / explanation.

                I am all for taking responsibility for one’s own use of timber (through strategically cutting down and milling one’s own wood when possible) but personally if I was gonna cut down healthy trees on my property I would do everything possible to avoid cutting down the old growth trees (if possible, sometimes if a structure was built in a poor location and the tree could fall on it, I do have to either aggressively trim and/or cut down a nearby tree).

                Are you familiar with the concept of “Mother Trees”?


                In a similar way to how elder humans gather experience and the ability to share it and channel resources to help younger humans achieve their true potential, “Mother Trees” actually serve a similar role in their own community.

                Healthy old growth trees (depending on species, typically 250-1000 years old) are inter-connected to the forest they are a part of through mycorrhizal hyphae that extend from their root tips and allow for direct communication and sharing of resources with other trees. The amount of connections that an old growth tree has to the trees around it is many magnitudes greater than the amount of connections a tree that is only as old as lets say, an elder human (70-100 years), and thus their supportive role in that forest community is also many magnitudes more important. Their role as elders is also expressed in other ways (and supports myriad species in ways that younger trees do not as well).

                I do not know all the details of the situation you are dealing with, with the “30+ huge pine trees in two locations on the property” so I would not pretend to know what is best for them, or you, but I just thought you might find it interesting to consider the role they play in the non-human community you (and they are a part of).

                Do you know what species of pine they are? If you were to guess, how old do you think the pines are? Are they healthy?

                Yes I agree pine is good for garden beds, Cedar is great too (that is what ours are made of).

                That is very interesting about the wooden water pipes, I did not know that.

                Well I will have to respond to the other garden focused part of your comment another time, I am heading off to work to plant some pine, spruce, fir and oak trees.

                I hope you have a nice day.

              • When my mom purchased this property (33 acres) in 2000, it was completely wooded. To do anything at all – even to build a little shed – we had to cut down trees. Over the past 23 years, we have slowly opened up some relatively small areas for gardens and a small pasture. In 2018, we had an adjacent piece that we added to our land, about 3 acres, cleared and stumped for a pasture and gardens and tractor shed (the only south-facing location on the property). All around us is woods, with very little open land. From the air, probably very few houses would be visible in summer, due to all the trees.

                Cleared land is hard to come by. It is expensive to make a pasture or open field, and it’s very hard for those of us who know and value open land to see people letting their pastures grow up into brush. They apparently have no idea how much it costs to make fields.

                So, there is no shortage of trees here. We want to open up even more land and plant back some to trees we want – black locust, nut trees, fruit trees, honey locust, linden, and others.

                I can’t even tell you how many trees I have lost (ones that I’ve bought and ones that I’ve started from seed) due to having no place to plant them … because there are too many trees in the way, or trees that need to be cut down in areas that are somewhat open and my baby trees might get smashed in the process. So they have died in their pots.

                I can’t fathom planting the kinds of trees you are planting. They’re everywhere, without planting a single one, just like you can’t understand me cutting down trees. 🙂

              • We were told this property was logged about 15 years before we got it, although it was completely grown back. I have attended workshops on logging and responsibly stewarding woods and have some idea of what to do, although I refuse to use a chainsaw, so that’s where the logger comes in.

                The logger I have been talking with seems especially aware of wise harvesting principles. I am VERY protective of my woods and don’t want a mess left behind – believe me, I’ve seen some real terrible jobs – and he knows that’s what I want and expect.

                I highly doubt there are any “old growth” trees on this property. I suspect those were taken years ago by previous owners. There have been a couple big, old trees that have fallen and collapsed. One was a beech and another was a yellow birch. Very often, I hear trees go down in a storm and run to see which one it was. Sometimes I can’t tell until later. They can sound closer than they are. Several came down this winter. One was a big old maple. There are trees down all through the woods, and not just big ones. Little ones fall over too.

                The pines that need to come down may be 100 years old, as a guess. Some are between the power lines and the town road, so the last logger didn’t cut them. They are not in a good place and are holding up projects, so hopefully they can come down soon. The other stand has some dead pines standing among the live ones. That may be an area we will plant back with other trees that we want.

                Property taxes are high here (no state income or sales tax so they make it up on property taxes), so the money from the logging will hopefully help to pay some bills too. We’ve been paying taxes on some of those trees (the original property) for 23 years.

              • Another project is taking down many oak trees that are large and in the way. They also drop acorns on our metal roofs, which sound like gunshots, and tons of little oak seedlings sprout in the few areas we are trying to keep open. These are red oaks. I think the pines are white pines – five needles per bunch.

                But there are about 35 more acres of trees, so I am not a bit concerned, and don’t feel at all selfish or irresponsible to cut trees in my open areas. 🙂

                I listen to a podcast where one of the advertisements says they “plant a tree for every item sold, which helps the environment.” I have to shake my head. They don’t live in New Hampshire where to plant a tree, you would have to cut down one or two or three first. 🙂 I also wish they would give some to me to plant – my choice of which kinds. I can’t help but wonder where they are planting all those trees…. Maybe Ontario?

            • Gardens… Only peas and Swiss chard planted so far, but I spent about 4 hours unloading a pick-up truck and 5×8’ trailer load of organic composted manure from a local organic dairy farm tonight (in the rain). I have two three-section cattle panel hoops up, ready for something to grow on them. I do cucumbers and tomatoes on fences. Hopefully I’ll get lettuce, kale, spinach, and more planted later this week. Ginger and turmeric are in a starting tub, keeping warm by my wood stove. The instructions said heat was more important than light and they get one or the other here…. 🙂 Two horseradish starts are in pots – the tops of the horseradish I bought to make maror for Passover – sprouting nicely. 🙂 Elderberry plants are all over the place and are sprouting leaves. I have the two kinds of amaranth seeds you suggested, ready to go in the ground. I’m not sure if they can stand frost or not. I’ll have to check. We don’t plant things that can’t take frost until the first of June here. Lots more plans for gardens. I have lots of seeds I hope/plan to plant. I hope to try three sisters this year. I’ve known about them for probably 20 years and have never done them yet. This is the year. 🙂 A lot going on. 🙂

          “Grandma gets resurrected but not ‘Spot’ the dog? That hardly seems fair. If Creator is handing out resurrection tickets, why not include our four legged friends (and all the other good hearted beings that chose to life a good life on Earth, or elsewhere)?”

          There are differing opinions about this. Many respected theologians believe that there will be animals in heaven. The Bible specifically says that there are horses there.

          “Christ proclaims from his throne on the New Earth: “Behold, I am making all things new” (Revelation 21:5, ESV). It’s not just people who will be renewed but also the earth and “all things” in it. Do “all things” include animals? Yes. Horses, cats, dogs, deer, dolphins, and squirrels—as well as the inanimate creation—will be beneficiaries of Christ’s death and resurrection.”

          Others insist that the Bible clearly distinguishes between mankind and the animal kingdom in regards to the resurrection.
          Keep in mind that animals didn’t contribute to the Fall. They didn’t bring sin into the world. So they don’t need to be redeemed as man does.
          Whatever plan that God has for animals in the New Earth, you can be assured that it will be more fair, loving and merciful than anything that you are able to imagine.

          Also, keep in mind that God isn’t “handing out resurrection tickets”. Every human being that was ever born will be resurrected. Some to eternal life in fellowship with God and some to eternal separation from God. (Sometimes referred to as Hell).

          The same way that everyone’s name is written in the Book of Life and will only be blotted out if they die having never accepted the gift of salvation.
          See Revelation 3:5

          “Isn’t that a Jehovah’s Witness thing? (the whole humans get ‘resurrected’ for a 1000 years after ‘Armageddon’ thing)? Or am I thinking of the wrong dogmatic religious belief system?”

          I sense a mocking tone in that question. Nevertheless, and even though the question wasn’t addressed to me, I will tell you that your theology is lacking a foundation of biblical knowledge. 🙂

          “which I think Steve has described as “The Religion” or “Church” of “Photosynthesis Of The Soul” in the past ? “

          Remember, you came up with that title. I simply approved of it.
          But I’m still praying that you will someday embrace The truth instead of your own understanding.

        That would be composting your body. It just might take a bit longer because of the wooden box.

        “The difference between the flesh of the goldfish, dog, or cat and grandma is that grandma’s body will be resurrected. But you know that. ?”

        Yes, I do know that. But God isn’t going to be challenged no matter what happens to the body after death.
        My brother was lost at sea. The elements and chemicals that made his physical body have been spread throughout the world but that won’t make God’s job of resurrection any more difficult.

        “It seems to me that neither cremation nor composting show honor for humanity or people.”

        I don’t really understand why you would think that one couldn’t be buried in just as dignified and honoring way as happens under current so-called “normal” circumstances simply because of the lack of a wooden box.

        I suppose I understand your reluctance to using the services of a company that would handle the job of turning one into soil. But I don’t really understand how that process is any more or less honorable or dignified than the services that people are forced by the state to use as things stand today.

        In my perfect world, the state would have nothing to do with the decisions people make about it.

        • I suppose it’s just the thought of having dirt thrown directly on my face (and body) that bothers me. It doesn’t seem proper (or respectful). I have even buried our pets in shoe boxes or something similar so as to not to put dirt directly on them. Yes, it will happen eventually and naturally. I’d just rather have it be less direct, I guess.

          And does it really matter, physically speaking? I guess not. There won’t be any pain or feeling. It just doesn’t seem right to me somehow…

          As far as the composting… we have composted chickens and sheep we butchered, or had butchered – well, the extra parts. It seems (to me) like humans shouldn’t be treated like chickens, sheep, and garden waste and intentionally composted like that. But I am interested in your views and input on why you may see it differently. 🙂

          I think there is some confusion in these threads about what compost is and is not. According to the US composting concil composting is defined as ‘the product manufactuered through the controlled aerobic, biological decomposition of biodegradable materiels. The product has undergone mesophilic and thermophilic temperatures, which significantly reduces the viability of pathogens and weed seeds and stabilizes the carbon such that it is beneficial to plan growth’. After years of making compost I can say I agree with this definition very much. This makes it a purely human created activity that does not accur naturally without combining a large amount of organic materials (and water) to achieve an approximate 30:1 ratio of carbon to nitrogen materials. This is absolutely not the same as burying an animal (human) as humans are not 30:1 on their own. Hence why you have to mix materials together in a compost pile to achieve the composting process. I do not want to be buried when I die. I want to be composted, a very different process and subsequent result. You could then bury the result of that composting process (humus) but without first combining the organic materials at the proper ratios (above ground), composting will not be achieved.

            I get what you’re saying. And you’re correct. The technical definition is: “Composting” means the manipulation of the natural process of decomposition of organic materials to increase the rate of decomposition.”

            Thermophilic composting is a very safe and effective way of speeding up the decomposition of organic matter. I’ve successfully used the process for composting animal products and human waste for years.

            However, all organic matter, unless entirely deprived of aerobic and or anaerobic bacterial activity, will eventually decompose. Or in other words, be broken down by the natural process of decomposition.

            Sometimes simply letting nature take it’s course is the most practical method. It has worked for eons.

            “What is the simplest way to decompose cooked meat, bones, spoiled milk, and the like?

            Dig a trench in your garden, dump it in, and cover with more dirt. This might not work if you have a small garden, but in general you CAN compost organic matter like this.

            Burying it will eliminate the stink and how it attracts animals. This is the reason that stops experts from recommending you compost those things anyway.

            Most organic matter doesn’t need just the right amount of anything. It is going to decompose no matter what you do. It is a shame to put it where it can’t be used at all.“

    If it’s a bad sign that we even care what’s happening at FOX with Cucker Tarlson, is it a good sign that I don’t? I feel so left out. I don’t understand anything coming out on the MSM, because I’m totally off the radar. People ask me about such and such story, and I say I’m clueless. I’m a tabula rasa. I used to try to help friends understand the story behind the MSM lies. Now I don’t know what they’re talking about and I don’t care.
