I think so, too. Feeding people is good. I could do without Monsanto, though.

Now /that/ is wrong. There seems to be a bad end on that food chain, too.

Around here, lots of subsidies go into agriculture producing an excess
of supply and unrealistic expectations. Huge amounts of produce are
destroyed or rendered unsuitable for human consumption in the EU every
year just to keep prices high. I think that is just sick. So much good
could be done with that.
