Oh, and yes, I realize that I'm not ranting about something directly related to food, as is my norm. But, here's the obvious - Folks Gotta Eat, and if the democratic systems are broken, and there is an increasingly unfair (and insane) distribution of wealth, well, it's gonna get harder for folks to eat.The perfect storm: An unprecedented concentration of income and wealth at the top; a record amount of secret money flooding our democracy; and a public becoming increasingly angry and cynical about a government that's raising its taxes, reducing its services, and unable to get it back to work.
Robert Reich's perfect storm
