Though science confirms farming made the English Countryside what it is today
4th March 2018
And science also tells us what made most of Scotland and Wales
ALSO The Industrial Revolution was MAN MADE
That most maligned of professions – the farmer – who produces most of our food !
Some know it’s the “Environmentalists” who know it all and do fuck all to produce.
Some are the self righteous.
Farmers dont mind you walking over his garden, if you don’t mind him making a mess of yours.
But they would rather you didn’t dump your rubbish on his land and the Councils make you clear it up
Crops damaged, vegetation destroyed, farm animals attacked, fences broken yet farmers not advocating no right of access to the countryside, just controlled access.
The postman walks up the Environmentalists garden path, but if he nips across the flower bed to gain a shorter access to the next place their arms go up in horror.
And if someone comes along and steals the Environmentalists prize potatoes or peaches they would demand the most severe of penalties.
So most people dont really believe that Jesus shone and made Heaven on Earth
“On England’s Green and Pleasant Lands”
In the most common interpretation of the poem, Blake implies that a visit by Jesus would
briefly create heaven in England, in contrast to the “dark Satanic Mills” of the Industrial Revolution.
Blake’s poem asks four questions rather than asserting the historical truth of Christ’s visit.
Thus the poem merely implies that there may, or may not, have been a divine visit, when there was briefly heaven in England.
That is not to say that the poem’s theme is linked to the Book of Revelation (3:12 and 21:2) describing a Second Coming, wherein Jesus establishes a New Jerusalem.
The Christian church in general, and the English Church in particular, has long used Jerusalem as a metaphor for Heaven, a place of universal love and peace
It’s all mumbo jumbo !
As if by some miracle the Environmentalists replaced God.
Leave the land to nature
Let it go “wild”
As if by some miracle
We can pursue that and still be fed ?
JUST TO MAKE IT CLEAR NATURE NEEDS MANAGING
OR WILD BECOMES CHOKED AND THEN A WILDERNESS
OR DROWNS US IN THE CASE OF THE SEA AND SHORE
We plough the fields, and scatter the good seed on the land;
But it is fed and watered by God’s almighty hand:
He sends the snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain,
The breezes and the sunshine, and soft refreshing rain.
He only is the maker of all things near and far;
He paints the wayside flower, He lights the evening star;
The winds and waves obey Him, by Him the birds are fed;
Much more to us, His children, He gives our daily bread
We thank Thee, then, O Father, for all things bright and good,
The seed time and the harvest, our life, our health, and food;
No gifts have we to offer, for all Thy love imparts,
But that which Thou desirest, our humble, thankful hearts.
Hands up if you know how to plough and scatter seed ?
In that case for your daily bread – Thank a Farmer
As food production is still a science and an art
