Wendell Berry Earns Highest Human Award. Photo Cred: Sojourners

“There is, then a politics of food that, like any politics, involves our freedom. We still (sometimes) remember that we cannot be free if our minds and voices are controlled by someone else. But we have neglected to understand that we cannot be free if our food and its sources are controlled by someone else. The condition of the passive consumer of food is not a democratic condition. One reason to eat responsibly is to live free.”
-Wendell Berry, The Pleasures Of Eating.
