A Wonderful Interview with Joel Salatin

This excellent farmer has joined my list of people I deeply admire who've injected invaluable positive energies into my life over the years including e. e. cummings, The Beatles, Ruth Stout, Yoko Ono, Pee Wee Herman and Marcel Duchamp. My south Tampa yard is currently entering a new phase of evolution due to Joel Salatin's practices and philosophies. I especially agree with his suggestion that we can disempower food tyranny by refusing whenever possible to buy industrial food. To that I would add we can refuse to send our children to wars of choice for profit carefully selected by the Military Industrial Complex of which toxic, earth-raping Factory Farming is a part. Buy raw milk. Enjoy cannabis. Refuse to accept rigged elections as in 2000 and 2004. Don't invest in companies that invest in war against innocent peoples for their resources. Boycott Monsanto whenever possible. Grow as much of your own food as you can, using only heirloom and open-pollinated seeds. And learn from innovative, soulful people like Joel Salatin.  Enjoy, John
