The Agrarian Crisis Is the Drive Toward Corporate Farming -Shockingly Honest – Nero’s Guest by P. Sainath

Nero was a Roman Emperor who murdered his own mother.  Tacitus, a senator and historian  wrote in his book,  Annals that,

Nero during gladiator matches he would lite his garden parties with the burning carcasses of Christians. The  guest lists to those parties were poets and artists, and upper class elites, and intellectuals..and..no one objected.

Indian filmmakers  follow rural reporter and activist  P.Sainath into the causes of farmer suicides, and  the system that neglects and destroys them.  This is a shocking and eye opening film. Please take the  time to watch, reflect  and understand.

“I have covered farmers who have committed suicide because they could not get 8000 ruppees at a decent rate of interest from the bank in 2003 and 2004. Than I’ve gone back to my house as an urban middle class professional sir and got a letter from my bank offering me a Marcedez Benz at 6% interest no collateral required..what kind of justice is this?” P. Sainath

“Dear God. I pray for the hearts who’ve traded their divinity and humanity in for the abstraction of leisure, and distraction of purpose, and the cruelty of distance. “

“Please friends, support my efforts at Act Naturally, become a part of the solution. Be the change you want to see.  Trade in your passivity for purpose.  Grow your own food. Educate yourself and dismantle one by one the systems of control in your life that keep you from your highest purpose.  Closing our eyes in this desperate hour, will surely destroy us all.” –Kamla Vishvas
