What globalization has wrought.posted by The Vidiot @ 7:43 AM Permalink The threat to our food supply from Chinese imports, whether real or imagined, is yet another example of how unchecked globalization is bad thing.
Excerpt: Dead pets and melamine-tainted food notwithstanding, change will prove difficult, policy experts say, in large part because U.S. companies have become so dependent on the Chinese economy that tighter rules on imports stand to harm the U.S. economy, too.Now, I'm not an isolationist, but should be so dependent upon another country for our food? We can grow and process our own food here... at least we used to be able to anyway.
The only solution to this sort of thing is eat locally and eat organic whenever possible. You'll still ingest crap. That's unavoidable. But at least you'll ingest LESS crap.
