Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Food Democracy?

I recently came across the term “food democracy.” At first, I thought that meant “one cauliflower, one vote.” It means something even sillier.

According to Food First (people last?):

It is important to understand food democracy as a framework for making our food system more responsive to the needs of its citizens and decentralizing control.

………

Food democracy emphasizes social justice in the food system, and food is viewed as the center of the democratic process.

This goes beyond the “vote with your fork” ideology which does NOT provide a democratic way to change the food system.

In other words, they want to decentralize, not merely the food industry, but your plate. What's on your plate will no longer be a matter of your top-down decisions but it will be made collectively, i.e., by people with too much free time.

GF and I were up in NH and VT over the past weekend, looking for a farm to buy and live on.

I don't believe in democracy, whether "food democracy" or the regular kind.

I'll accept either "food marketism" or "food feudalism".

P.S. love the fact that the captcha has the number 223 in it; caliber of the beast!

EVERY aspect of human life must become politicized. All our waking moments (and our dreams) must be controlled by the Party.

The goal of the Left is the complete annihilation of the individual self, and free will. Once we have been reduced to automata, they can reshape the world according to their own whims.

It is past time to start fighting them by any means necessary.

"At first, I thought that meant “one cauliflower, one vote.”"

At last, a plausible explanation for how the election turned out.
