The Societal Ramifications & Consequences of the Making and Taking of Food
This site dedicated to the matters of food above and beyond the mere satiation of flavors on one's palette; but rather the ramifications to society from the consequences of how its' production, distribution, and nutrition affect living systems. How we sow, reap, harvest, legislate and base our economic systems on food is key to how we ultimately treat each other and the Earth.

The Father of the Green Revolution Dies Norman Borlaug
"Norman E. Borlaug saved more lives than any man in human history," said Josette Sheeran, executive director of the U.N. World Food Program. "His heart was as big as his brilliant mind, but it was his passion and compassion that moved the world." per Huffington post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/13/norman-borlaug-dead_n_284886.html#comments
With all due respect, I say this man may have killed at least a billion more. The green revolution kicked the can of the obvious egalitarian ecovillage solution down the road to yet be even now more difficult to implement. The designs of cities and communication centers need to be self sustaining. Everyone should know how to grow food. See http://www.powerofcommunity.org/cm/index.php to see how another country, abruptly taken off the hydrocarbon economy Borlaug's model Green Revolution requires. Our economic structure need not dictate the growing of food, the growing of food need dictate the structure of the economy via natural law. See http://thefutureoffood.com/
Above comment made, Blessings to his family and this man's soul.
