Information Received: re “Food”

What we all need. What the country needs.

*************

We’re always part of the system we happen to describe.
Actions speak louder than words, but words, too, have a role to play.
One thing is certain, talks about peace or an equitable world are delusional.
The following sets the tone for a new narrative.

LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE / LET FOOD BE THY KNOWLEDGE

Food equates to life and underwrites all agendas. Let us enter all food/life
cycles then. Only the food/life cycles can indicate a clear pathway for they
act like a sure and unfailing reinforcement of our actions, a corrective
guidance to our learning and an indication of our rightful or wrongful ways
of doing things.
Against a background of fear and apprehension, the answers we seek can only
be found within a fuller narrative.

We crave learning as much as we crave food. A problem arises:

OUR POTENTIAL FOR LEARNING IS UNMENT VIS-À-VIS ITS ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.

Embracing farming is like turning over a new leaf. Hence,
Local Economies Are Forever (LEAF), and FOOD lies at the centre of it all.
Food stands alone. It provides the sought-after focus and perspective.
Health, education and economy depend on it.

We Deserve Much Much Better / Food: A Salutary Lesson

On words first, my own work has a high educational flavour.

       Food is the produce of the soil
       Food is the fons et origo of all knowledge, of culture and traditions,
trade, ecology and science.
       The inclusiveness of food is exclusive to food. Learning can only acquire
its meaning from a fully-fledged food education and culture.
       We crave learning as much as we crave food.
       Food details the history of humankind.
       Food is the harbinger of Life.
       Food makes communities.
       Food is about upbringing and education.
       Food is energy as much as energy is human endeavour.
       Food is convivial, exemplary, totemic.
       Food is the pace-setter.
       Food speaks of creation and creativity.
       Food is the hardware and software and covers the whole spectrum.
       A glance at etymology shows that food is a blend of chemistry and
physics.
       We avail ourselves of a handy word, culture, that applies to both the
cultivation of the land (horticulture, agriculture, viticulture) and the
cultivation of the mind (a literary tradition and culture, a cultured
person). How insensitive though to forgo one for the other.
       Hardship breeds hardship. We need an education that transcends hardship.

The specific lesson referred to above is exemplified next:
