“Parsons was Winston’s fellow employee at the Ministry of Truth. He was a fattish but active man of paralyzing stupidity, a mass of imbecile enthusiasms–one of those completely unquestioning, devoted drudges on whom, more even than on the thought police, the stability of the Party depended.”

Every year in Japan, a generational-Satanist secret handshake club member called “the tuna king” is forced to step up and pay, way, way way too much for a tuna, to prop up the failing ruse that the tuna aren’t doing well. I’m sure that their fellow conspirators hand the money directly back to them right after the auction, and come up with a realistic price for the fish.
“If there was Some Big Conspiracy, you couldn’t keep it a secret. Somebody would notice, someone would speak up.”
The stories above don’t make any mention as to why bluefin tuna prices are low . Low, that is, with the exception of the annual ruse-fish. That’s because saying “prices rise either when supply increases, demand decreases, or both” leads directly to the collapse of the " Poor Mother Gaia is Dying " confidence game.
And, as we know, when cons collapse, they do so in a rush, like a house of cards.
Prices rise either when supply increases, demand decreases, or both.
That’s why you know that the second headline up above, " Booming demand could drive tuna to extinction, researchers find", is a bald-faced lie.
Actually, it’s a half-truth. In that some level of as-yet-nonexistent demand could drive tuna to extinction, were it to in fact exist outside of a propagandist’s fantasy world. A world of lies and half-truths where readers of paralyzing stupidity will revel.
Now, here’s the reality of bluefin tuna supply and demand:
“Rory O’Donnell, sales and purchasing manager at Red’s Best, one of the largest wholesale distributors of fish in Massachusetts, said he was paying an average of $4 per pound for bluefin tuna this season , which began in June and normally would have run until the end of August. Last year he paid an average of $7 per pound, $7.50 the year before that, and so on back to the 1980s, when it was worth upwards of $15 per pound.”
Tuna prices are as low as they’ve been, well, ever, because tuna are booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Supply is high, and demand is steady, not " booming " as falsely claimed. Can you see how " booming " is lurid, but general? As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda.
Having to get through your life with nothing but lies to support you is not a good long term strategy. The folks in charge are coming to the bitter end of their ages-long game.
As for rest of us, we know we’re already past the worst, here. Because the hardest part of solving a problem is recognizing that you have one.

August 1, 2019 - Massachusetts - Bluefish are biting, tuna prices tanking
Bluefin tuna catches cooled off a bit last week but a rather disturbing situation has developed in regard to that fishery. I have heard reliable reports of extraordinarily low prices being paid for these fish in the Japanese market and in a few cases the fish couldn’t even be sold because the market has been flooded. Who knows how the market is flooded ? Last November for example, 88 tons of illegally-harvested bluefins from the Mediterranean Sea were caught being shipped to Japan, and catches have increased from Australia, New Zealand and Canada. The robust prices New England fishermen have been enjoying for years is clearly being threatened as of late .
(Papua New Guinea’s tuna exports have more than tripled in the last six years. Why isn’t Papua New Guinea mentioned? The volume of bigeye tuna production in the Philippines increased 89% from 2005 to 2018. Why aren’t the Philippines mentioned?
Can you see how reading the specific statistics is far more impactful than the general "catches have increased "? That’s why the duplicitous author used the latter as a hedge.
As an aside, I’ll note that the pending Washington state record bluefin tuna, caught in August 2019, is 152% percent larger - well more than double the size - of a prior record holder, caught in 2012. - ed)
August 15, 2019 - Once Robust , Bluefin Tuna Fishery Is In Economic Freefall
(Calling the most robust tuna fishery in history " once robust" - a spectacular Satanic inversion. - ed)
The quiet demise of the tuna industry was in evidence last week when the 278-metric ton seasonal quota was reached early . Market prices were reported to have plummeted to a record-breaking low.
(“Everyone caught a whole bunch of fish in record time” called " the demise of the industry ". Another spectacular Satanic inversion. - ed)
Rory O’Donnell, sales and purchasing manager at Red’s Best, one of the largest wholesale distributors of fish in Massachusetts, said he was paying an average of $4 per pound for bluefin tuna this season, which began in June and normally would have run until the end of August.

“It’s just the market in motion ,” he said. “Prices are at a significant low because of an increase in competition . . . an increase in farmed fish from other parts of the world that have spilled over from the Japanese market . . . and a higher quantity of fish because of [the fact that] the stock is strong.”
(No one is farming bluefin tuna in any needle-moving way. That’s a ruse. He puts all the lies first and finally gets to the truth, “the stock is strong .” And that’s a half-truth, a hedging generality. The stock is the strongest it has ever been, in all history. - ed)
November 5, 2019 - Tuna prices plummet to record low levels on oversupply
November 27, 2019 - Low tuna prices hit Maruha Nichiro
Lower market prices hit Maruha Nichiro’s profits, which declined despite an increase in revenues across its seafood trading companies. This was largely attributed to low tuna prices and sluggish sales of high-end seafood to China.
January 2, 2020 - Bluefin tuna prices low heading into 2020
Bluefin tuna prices usually spike in Japan heading into the New Year holidays, when Japanese consumers splurge on expensive foods. This year, higher catch
