Food, Inc. – Post Scriptum
March 15, 2010
Hostile take over of natural standards in the food chain by high tech substitutes:
Six months have passed and I have finally been able to watch the Oscar nominated documentary Food, Inc.
The issues seem even more threatening to society and individuals than I had originally imagined. To use an analogy from medicine; if I had assumed a state of the high tech substitute hostile take over of natural standards in the food chain equivalent to a stage I cancer, this documentary presents a stage III or IV with the patient in a critical state.
“The stage of a cancer is a descriptor (usually numbers I to IV) of how much the cancer has spread. The stage often takes into account the size of a tumor, how deeply it has penetrated, whether it has invaded adjacent organs, how many lymph nodes it has metastasized to (if any), and whether it has spread to distant organs. Staging of cancer is important because the stage at diagnosis is the most powerful predictor of survival, and treatments are often changed based on the stage.”
Set in a magical world of fantasy, the ring of the Lords that control the countries food industry has grown immensely powerful and acquired collaborators against the best interests of consumers and Nature itself who now rally to fight the battle against the shadow of human artifice, venom and monopoly. Vigilance and lawsuits lurk while the legal nazgule launch relentless lobbying funded by greed’s best friend: money, to sway legislation their way.
Somewhere in this mythical dimension trees of Life have awakened to resist the gluttony of a small group of economic interest and it’s disrespectful raid on the heritage of all mankind, NATURE.
Pockets of noble resistance have taken up their most powerful weapon CHOICE and NUMBERS and joined forces at the root of the problem: DEMAND.
But set aside this nightmare of a fantasy presented for your enjoyment and check out the real life scenario as presented in the highly interesting and very disturbing movie Food, Inc.
Begin here and navigate from there:
PPS. Should you decide to order a few copies of this documentary and circulate them amongst your friends, from the fact that numbers and knowledge are power, you could be helping to rewrite the last chapter of this contemporary saga and change our children’s present and proximate future.
An overwhelming opportunity.
