We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
And what, pray tell does "industrial" farming actually mean?
One farmer with diesel fueled equipment is able to do what used to take many men hours and hours of labor to do. Unfortunately with the tax code the way it is, you need to go into massive amounts of debt in order TO farm. Unless you have corporate contracts which means you are not the boss anymore.
Lot of women on that "ecomodermist" board with 2 last names and trigger words that imply collectivism. That never works out well for the peasants and their food supply.
