Convenient Untruths - Part 2
Following on from the first interview in 2019 Wisdom Hub Co-Founder and Lead Interviewer Davyd Farrell settles down again with Julian Rose to explore Convenient Untruths Part 2.
A renowned author, organic farmer and long-time activist Julian Rose is known for not pulling any punches in his critical appraisals of UK and EU governmental agendas. Be it mono-agricultural farming practices or the rollout of 5G, Julian has been at the forefront of questioning the direction and narrative of the people in our society driving this change, and whether its the right kind of change for the earth and for the people.
A review of the previous interview which covered topics all very pertinent to where we are now includes; the fallacy of Zero carbon, the effects of 5G, the New Green Deal and the Great Reset leads the interview into the realms of how we deal with the current 'Truth Crises’ that we are experiencing. The provenance of our food and medicine as well our media input comes under the spotlight. The web of illusion that has been spun over the last 12 month has become so distorted that the difference between truth and conspiracy is now almost impossible to get at.
Julian points out that as always though we need to follow the money trail and root out the true instigators of these illusions.
The last half of the interview is devoted to finding real and practical solutions that place Human-Nature relations at the heart of the modern age and potentially allow us as humans to finally experience true freedom and sovereignty.

Sir Julian Rose
Julian Rose was born in March 1947, on the Hardwick Estate in South Oxfordshire’s Chiltern Hills, the youngest of four children. On the premature death of his brother (1963) and his father a few years later, Julian suddenly found himself thrust from being the youngest sibling to the heir of the thousand acre estate and baronetcy, passed down from his great grandfather.
After some years exploring his passion for theatre he moved back to Hardwick in 1983, to become a full time farmer, completing the conversion of the estate to organic farming methods, a process started in 1975, making him one of the pioneers of this ecological land management system. Joining the board of the Soil Association in 1984, Julian became involved in an intense campaign to promote ecological food and farming in the face of the rapid rise of industrial agriculture.
Amongst his many campaigns for justice Julian led a successful high profile campaign to save unpasteurised milk from a government ban. Recently Julian has opened up the Hardwick woods for increased public access and in support of the socially and educationally disadvantaged, as well as for young offenders seeking the therapeutic advantages of a mixed forestry environment.
Julian also gained notoriety as both a defender and promoter of holistic approaches to the rejuvination of struggling rural economies. Notably his unremitting insistence on the need to support local and regional, as opposed to ‘global’, food economies. An approach coined in a formula he named “The Proximity Principle”.
He sought to raise awareness of the need to build a dynamic balance between economic, social and environmental concerns. Never just one or the other.
In 1990 he took on the position of agricultural correspondent of the green broadsheet ‘Environment Now’, becoming one of the first UK activists to warn of the impending dangers of genetically modified foods.
In 2000 Julian was invited to become a co-director of the International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside, co-launching a highly successful ‘Campaign for a GMO Free Poland’ as well as leading a high profile defence of peasant farmers whom he holds-up as the true guardians of biodiversity throughout the world. Regular listeners to BBC radio 4’s Farming To-Day will have heard Julian’s 2007 series of once monthly “Letters from Poland” passionately highlighting the crisis provoked by forcing ‘corporate globalisation’ onto traditional family farming communities.
In “Changing Course For Life”, Julian Rose draws together all the strands of his highly diverse life experiences and, in a multidimensional vision of the future, calls for an uncompromising commitment to dynamic, decentralised community leadership as the chief vehicle for overcoming the dominant and life threatening Orwellian collusion between corporate greed and political ineptitude. Julian foresees this new beginning blossoming into a life-affirming process of humanistic and spiritual self realisation.
Julian's books include: 'Overcoming The Robotic Mind: Why Humanity Must Come Through' and 'In Defence Of Life'
