This very old speech and question and answer session answers many of the questions we have today about food production and community. Even in 1974 Mr. Berry was concisely picking apart the concept of Big Ag and accurately predicting some of the issues that it would bring us today. The one area I disagree with him on is that he thought we only had a generation (from 1974) to fix the problem. I am forever the optimist and think that we still have opportunity, we just have to work a little harder at it.
At any rate, this talk is well worth the 40 minutes it will cost you. Enjoy.
