Food for politics

What if we were able to eat more broadly, and more locally? What if food wasn’t traded internationally for the profits of those who only get their hands dirty playing the markets? What if we had more food security around the world, and less dependence on the big companies that control seed, pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers?

What if the food you eat is a key underpinning of capitalism? What would changing people’s diets do to the world’s political structures?

First off, who am I? My name is Jessica Urquhart. Writing has always been a hobby of mine, which got its start in middle and highschool, when I'd write short stories for the amusement of my friends and classmates. Currently, I'm working on my first book, my one true love of a story I've been saying I would one day write. Well, that day has come. If you'd care to follow my musings on the adventures and hurdles of writing my first fantasy book, then please, read my blog.

  1. Yes! What we need is a world filled with small, self governing/sustaining communities, which honor the individual, while despising the herd mentality. These communities can form relationships with each other, and without morphing into monstrosities like we are suffering under today.

    And It isn’t just capitalism that needs to be done away with either, it is all massive forms of government/economic systems!

    But of course, this is all a pipe-dream. Humanity is too whipped, to herd-like, to ever change this drastically. I wish I were wrong. I hope I am wrong. But sadly, I doubt it.
