I read this article yesterday on the train returning from Manhattan….a place with its own unique inequalities.
It is remarkable. As concisely as I’ve ever seen it, John Sutter of CNN demonstrates the moral and ethical absurdity of our current economy and the cultural biases that result from an absurd economy.
He also strikes at the heart of conservative commodity farmers’ incredibly bizarre attitude toward SNAP and other social programs. These folks have gotten wealthy on USDA financial protections (and that includes both commodity protections and conservation programs).
Please pass this article around.
