This is a great argument against the technology-driven, big-ag “food security” approach which focuses on the “need to feed the world” through more and flashier technological inventions. It addresses what I have been thinking about a lot lately: “Technology, we’re promised, is fast and easy. Which is good because, as it happens, we also don’t want to change the way we eat. We want a sacrifice-free, everything-the-same-but-more-of-it future. And that’s not really a future we can have.”
What do you think of that argument?
P.S. In the coming month, life will be a little crazy with finals, a new job and packing up my room in preparation for yet another move, so I’ll try to blog as often as I can, but the posts will probably be more of the short and/or reblog variety – It’ll be better after July!
