Ironies being what they are... I just watched this a couple of day ago. It has me thinking, profoundly. I did not hear anything new, but I saw some things that scared me deeply. Combine that with Ben's recent thread about the evil's of chocolate, and I am about ready to make some major changes about what I eat and why. (Why'd it have to be CHOCOLATE? I would gladly give up most of my bad habits, but chocolate? Final proof that there is no God....)
I was raised on a soy bean farm. Even in the 1970's, there was an awareness of some kind of evil plot developing. Farmers were selling their produce to some unnamed, unknown corporation that repeatedly eliminated the competition and then demanded cheaper prices. My childhood soybean farm is a shopping mall now.
"As I am, so are others;
as others are, so am I."
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.
