The wife and I finally got a chance to look at some documentaries on the American food system. Through the magic of Netflix, we rented King Corn and Food, Inc. If nothing else, it’s been a gigantic eye opener into how much control we must have over our own lives. Americans still think that the government is always on their side or doing what’s in our best interest. This isn’t always true, it’s a fine line, especially with the food system. Because Americans demand cheap food, the government is literally providing cheap (as in quality) food.
