Money, politics and food


One thought on “Money, politics and food

  1. Goes beyond GMO’s.  Food borne illness recalls are everywhere these days.  The FDA has had its ferocity tamed by conservative politics.  Wise people will avoid raw food lest they find out AFTER the fact that they got something infected with listeria or salmonella. Then there’s the matter of corporate meat production that creates dead rivers with the runoff of its concentrated animal feeding operations.  Then there’s free trade agreements that take citizen power and give foreigners a veto power.  You can breathe fouled air for a few decades, but you can’t go decades without eating.  Bad food can kill instantly.  Corporate executives really can’t discipline themselves. The stock market pushes them and pushes them.  They really need boundaries they can’t cross. And those don’t presently exist.
