The Netherlands government is attempting to seize farmland from its citizens and turn the land into an urban city under the guise of 'environmental policy.' Many Dutch farmers have chosen to revolt against their government instead of succumbing to this control-seeking agenda, and have been protesting by blocking highways and borders, spraying manure on government buildings, and more.
“The government wants to come in, take these beautiful plots of land, thousands of acres of forests and trees and fields, and they just want to prop up giant concrete buildings on it. And they say that it's for the environment!” remarked Smith.
The two discuss the farmers' perspective on their country's new environmental policies as well as the implications of this radical climate agenda for the Dutch people and the likelihood of it spreading to other western countries.
