For centuries, the image of the family farmer has been as iconic a piece of Americana as baseball and apple pie. Rugged and independent, the farmer still represents in the minds of many those true ideals of American individualism that the country was based on, with Thomas Jefferson’s ideal of the “yeoman farmer” providing for him the ideal citizen for the fledgling American republic.
Even now, after the virtual extinction of the family farm model in the corporate agri-business paradigm, long after the American population shifted from predominately rural and agrarian to predominately urban and corporate, there is still the ideal of the farmer, dedicated to a life of hard, honest work, growing the food upon which we all rely.
What an indictment of modern America, then, that it sits by while a federal agency appoints itself over the remaining few organic family farmers, presuming to come between these farmers and their customers, telling people what they can and cannot eat, and even raiding farms that dare to resist with guns drawn.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents the recent Rawesome Foods raids- the armed FDA operations and crackdown on raw milk in the name of “safety”, and questions the federal regulators’ power and jurisdiction to legislate what foods people are allowed to put into their own bodies, and the inherent tyranny in this bureaucratic, legislative assault on food freedom.
