Get Ready to be Indignant

Not pissed off enough over how big business has taken over the means of production and distribution of food? Would you like (or do you need) the validation of your belief that the people who have taken charge of feeding the world are more interested in undermining your enslavement than they are in your nutrification?

Then you may want to whet your disaffection and anger with this trailer for the movie Food Inc.

Bob, it has become almost daily ritual for me to wonder whether the horrors of our modern industrial agriculture system will ever make sufficient impression on people that they will migrate all on their own to something healthier, more natural, more sustainable, or whether it will require some kind of massive intervention, either intentional or cataclismic.

Humour is a much sharper weapon than preaching.

I'm so lucky that I can buy locally raised meat (rabbit, chicken, pork, Scottish Highland beef, yak) and that I raise my own vegetables. Sometimes I even manage to buy local milk, cream, and home-milled flour. Fish? Salt? Olive oil? I either go without, buy locally imported farm-raised, or make the 7hr. drive to Seattle for some fish, especially mussels and oysters. Well, I do have a friend that fishes Alaska and makes available his own fresh caught, filleted, and frozen salmon and halibut. But I confess, my salt is from far, far away, as is my olive oil....

I look foraward to the film, because I agree that corporations have taken over the food industry and we need to take back our control of what we eat.
