Sure, it was that way once. Before a few billion people got added to the
planet; fewer and fewer of them (at least in developed countries) stayed on
the land to grow food for themselves and others; the cost (or at least
expectations) of living got so high that all potential wage-earners needed
to go to work; fast food, processed food, and convenience food became the
norm; and food became just another fungible commodity to be bought and sold
at the miminum-acceptable price for the minimum-acceptable quality.

A fist, all right. I dunno what sanet is exactly, but there's some pretty
good info and savvy thinking here, in addition to some big-league
philosophizing (Occam's Razor? Lemme find my western civ books) that I'm
saving to read when the frost is on the pumpkin.
I'm not a yuppie. I'm just a member of the Turnip Truck League, trying to
farm non-destructively (Non-destructive Agriculture has no ring to it). I'm
willing to listen to ideas from anybody else with the same notion.
You, too, Karl. Chime back in anytime.
