dairyman jim goodman in the 'financial times'

We were told in the '60s that there comes a time when the machinery becomes so odious ... that you have to throw yourself into the machinery and make it stop.

They tell me I must feed the world. But I'm not going to. I want to feed you. I want the world to feed itself. And they can. They've been farming longer than we have. They're smarter, they're younger, they're stronger, they're women, they're people of color.

The corporations want them out, they want the good land. They give them the poor land. And then they say, "See? They can't feed themselves." A self-fulfilling prophecy.
