I'm posting this because of the message about local autonomy (which some prefer to describe as "relocalization"). As a message about local community food, I think this statement is timely.
I don't mean to celebrate gruelling peasant field labour, and I certainly don't mean to reinforce assumptions about a supposed need to try to return to pre-industrial ways of life in order to reject modern industrial agriculture -- among other modern societal conditions. Even without fossil fuels, I'm sure that we can do better.
