Long, and worth the watch. You really cannot learn anything from a two minute spot on CNBC, MSNBC.

Best wishes,

Good. Right question: what should be your personal strategy? Mine: leave third world as nobody will stop Monsanto where, relocate to US as US going in "direction" of Europe (that, actually, "way to hell", but Europe is much closer to the "end line"). ;)

Processed food even if it's organic is killing you as well.

The problem with depending on the government to take care of you and to look out for your welfare is that government officials like to be bribed and don't really care about your welfare if they can make an extra buck.

All that films will impress only people who not familliar with alternatives. From one side: you cannot believe how many health problems people have in developing world beside these nice images of "farm makets". From another point of view: I just back from business trip from Swiss. They have a system pretty close to these films are promoting. Result: chippest lunch we had was >$50 per one without alcohol drinks. Are Americans ready to pay that price? As well as $6 per gallon for gas? You cannot believe how people stressed. Just example: they are stopping engine of car at light trying reduce gas consumption (actually, bad way).

VExplorer,

My personal strategy includes promoting progressive income taxes up to 90% to remove the financial motivation of executives.

And Chris,

to reduce their ability to bribe politicians and simultaneously reduce the politicians motivation to be bribed by limiting their gains.

Blesto,

I'll watch Food Inc. later, thanks for the link.

Blesto,

I have known of Food Inc for quite some time and never watched it until now. It was far less brutal and much more eye opening than I had imagined it would be. It clearly shows why Government should not be surrendered to business friendly politicos.

TDRH,

I am happy you found it to be worth your time. I did too.

Best wishes,

Steven
