”What does a city that’s been to hell and back know about luxury?… huh?” The answer is more poetic than we’re accustomed to in car ads: “We’ll tell you… it’s the hottest fires that make the hardest steel.”
Here are some ideas — frequently discussed, but sadly not yet implemented — that would make the growing, preparation and consumption of food healthier, saner, more productive, less damaging and more enduring. In no particular order:
End government subsidies to processed food.
Begin subsidies to those who produce and sell actual food for direct consumption.
Break up the U.S. Department of Agriculture and empower theFood and Drug Administration.
Outlaw concentrated animal feeding operations and encourage the development of sustainable animal husbandry.
Encourage and subsidize home cooking.
Tax the marketing and sale of unhealthful foods.
Reduce waste and encourage recycling.
Mandate truth in labeling. Nearly everything labeled “healthy” or “natural” is not.
Reinvest in research geared toward leading a global movement in sustainable agriculture, combining technology and tradition to create a new and meaningful Green Revolution.
