The best thing about the 2016 election, a contest between two of the most unpopular candidates in history, is that it’s over.
Now, we get back to work. Back to our radical roots (it’s never been lost on me that the word radical originates from the Latin word for root).
With this divisive and toxic election behind us, we can now get back to the grassroots work of regenerating our food and farming system, our health—even our democracy. Assuming, that is, we can set aside our differences long enough to focus on the root of our problems—corporate control over every aspect of our lives, including our political system.
As Dr. Joe Mercola wrote in an article that appeared just before the election, it’s time to recognize where our “true power” lies. It lies in the choices we make every time we make a purchase, especially a food purchase.
Every consumer choice we make either supports the corporations that are writing the laws we oppose. Or doesn’t. It’s that simple.
