Better than Farmville, anyway. The way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than in the previous 10, The modern American supermarket has on average 47, products. There are no seasons in the American supermarket.
Now there are tomatoes all year round, grown halfway around the world, picked when it was green, and ripened with ethylene gas.
In the meat aisle, there are no bones anymore. If you follow the food chain back from those shrink-wrapped packages of meat, you find a very different reality. The reality is a factory. That meat is being processed by huge multinational corporations that have very little to do with ranches and farmers.
Now our food is coming from enormous assembly lines where the animals and the workers are being abused. And the food has become much more dangerous in ways that are being deliberately hidden from us. How about a nice chicken club sandwich made with fresh cooked chicken?
My favorite meal to this day remains a hamburger and french fries. I had no idea that a handful of companies had changed what we eat and how we make our food.
And it was the idea of this world deliberately hidden from us. The whole industrial food system really began with fast food. In the s, a new form of restaurant arose and it was called the drive-in. The McDonald brothers had a very successful drive-in, but they decided to cut costs and simplify. So they fired all their carhops, they got rid of most of the things on the menu and they created a revolutionary idea to how to run a restaurant.

Today, chicken farmers no longer control their birds. This is the Chicken-- - National Chicken Council. The chicken industry has really set a model for the integration of production, processing and marketing of the products that other industries are now following because they see that we have achieved tremendous economies.
So all the birds coming off those farms have to be almost exactly the same size. What the system of intensive production accomplishes is to produce a lot of food on a small amount of land at a very affordable price.
I have aboutchickens. They got it figured out.
