Food is a Weapon
I don't remember where I found these images. I was researching a piece on food and architecture, and was thinking about the Victory Garden of WW II. I have found various stats on them, but there are claims that as much as 40% of US produce was coming from them during the war. They represent a potential model for the future.
Another potential model is the public awareness. This does work if the message is consistent. At present, we are a divided society. We need a common goal (or enemy). It is really hard when the enemy is us. Which brings me to Walt Kelly's poster for the first Earth Day. Self-consciousness is an effective tool.
