I’m not so much of a skeptic, agreeing with most of what you say and propose. However, most activists are in urban areas and so much of what you talk about doing is in urban areas. Should we not be encouraging people to leave urban areas and work the land instead of having factory farms and agribusiness do this for us? Somewhere in all this planning—and I believe I saw one small item among your tidbits—could we not do this? Otherwise we are not making enough of a sensible, timely structural change, are we?
