Minirant

March 11, 2010

Halfway through my first reading for my food class this week, I could already feel my blood pressure rising. This is not good.

Consider, for example, this quote from this article:

“Critics of biotechnology invoke the trite argument that the shortage of food is due to unaffordability and its unequal distribution. This criticism completely undermines the need for increased food production locally across the world.”

If by ‘increased food production’ you mean the expansion of intensive monoculture that concentrates power and profits in the hands of an ever-smaller minority, then YES! THAT’S THE FUCKING POINT!

We want a new world order, not a quick fix!

More to follow when I am feeling more coherent…
