Food Tyranny

Since Jen is taking jabs at me for not posting, I figured I would contribute. This is a  quote from C.S. Lewis from over 50 years ago. But, the words hit home just as much today in regards to the current war that the gov't/big-ag is waging against fresh, real, raw, locally grown, respectfully raised, non-laboratory food.

Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
--C.S. Lewis

Thanks, Chuck
