The Western conquest of the Third World destroyed and then rebuilt Third World agricultural and economic systems to serve the Western powers. As a result, most Third World countries were made dependent on food imports from the imperial powers as a weapon held over their heads. Bolivarian Venezuela continues to struggle with food independence, especially under US blockade designed to force them to surrender their sovereignty.
