As I have finally accepted the Crunchy Con label though I hate the images that term brings up I find myself more and more interested in the sovietization of our food industry by the corporatism alliance of large agricultural and livestock concerns and clueless bureaucrats. Ironically it was that very issue, and my interest in individual self-reliance, that pushed me into the non-Red version of being “green” but that’s an essay for another day.
Farmageddon, though clearly made by and aimed by people who consider themselves liberals, illustrates nicely the problem with our political food production system. Conservative will note that many of the most onerous and heavy handed attacks on small farms and consumer rights come from solidly blue states but the movie really doesn’t get into that which will no doubt irk many. However every American should watch this movie to understand why taking the “green” movement away from urban liberals who are complicit in the sovietization of farming and ranching needs to be a priority for all Americans.
