There is simply too much info in that article to start quoting. Do yourself a favor and go read it. It will give you an idea of what is coming because we are allowing it. I have no idea what we can do about it, but raising your own food isn't the answer. Eventually they will come after you too. We need to somehow stand together and support the farmers that are fighting now.
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
