Hi Don. I agree with everything else you said, except for "the problem
is us". It is only partly true. The bigger problem is the
chemical/industrial food industry, who use their immense economic
power and hold over the government to make it extremely difficult for
organic growers to flourish and for us to make the switch to organic.
Sal's plight is a good example: as an organic grower, he is being
taxed to death. The government then uses the taxes to subsidize the
It is not only us. It is the system. They have successfully made
chemical farming the "default" system. If you want to do otherwise,
you have to go through all kinds of bureaucratic hulla-hoops,
documentary mumbo-jumbo and pay all kinds of fees and taxes, while the
chemical industry enjoys all kinds of subsidies, research grants, etc.
We have to change not only "us", but also the rotten system.
