If there was an omni potent overlord, it could restore the environment.

Make them live in the pods.  They already have the bugs to eat.  Halfway to utopia.

What they hear; Kill a man, your a murderer.  Kill many, your a conqueror.  Kill them all, your a god!

Meh.  Those folks are sucking water out of the ground for irrigation so fast they are drying up what's left of some of the few lakes they have and will likely run out of ground water in 10 - 15 years anyway.  And most of the "crops" they are growing consists of alfalfa hay they ship out of the US.

According to billboards where I live, we just all have to pray and our land will be healed by God. That's it. Everyone prays and it all goes away. It's the fault of the people who don't pray, you understand. They cause global warming by their refusal to belong to a particular megachurch.

Considering mormon crickets are really katydids, and they commonly cannibalize the ones in front of them because they are there, what's to say any of us are truly safe?

From your link: "Ugandans pluck off grasshoppers' wings and legs, and then fry the unlucky insects in their own oil with onion, chili, or other spices."

That sucks; wings and thighs are my faves.

"...their name dates back to the 1800s, when they ruined the fields of Mormon settlers in Utah"

Sounds more like anti-Mormon crickets.

Then there must be a grand conspiracy to make the world believe Long Legged Katydids exist.  https://www.google.com/search?q=giant+long-legged+katydid&oq=giant+long&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAMYADIFCAAQkQIyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDIFCAAQgAQyBQgAEIAEMgUIABCABDIFCAAQgAQyBQguEIAEMgUIABCABDIFCAAQgAQ6BwgAEEcQsAM6CggAEEcQsAMQyQM6CwgAEIAEELEDEIMBOhEILhCABBCxAxCDARDHARDRAzoICAAQsQMQgwE6BAgAEEM6BAguEEM6BQguEJECOgsILhCABBCxAxCDAToRCC4QgAQQsQMQgwEQxwEQowI6CwguELEDEMcBEKMCOgsILhCxAxCDARCRAjoLCAAQsQMQgwEQkQI6CAgAEIAEELEDOggILhCABBCxAzoHCAAQgAQQCkoECEEYAEoECEYYAFD0BViwFGCgIWgBcAF4AIABigOIAfoOkgEHMS41LjMuMZgBAKABAcgBCMABAQ&sclient=gws-wiz
