This may sound crazy, and we are probably a long way off...perhaps not.
Why does the book and movie "Soylent Green" come to mind?
There's talk about a carbon tax, additional taxes on certain kinds of food (meat, poultry, fish, fast foods, etc.).
Although most farms and ranches are already owned by large corporations and the people running them are basically sharecroppers, there are very few
independant farms and ranches left, I have heard that increases in taxations and other restrictions could completely eliminate these independat
farmers and ranchers. Thus putting absolutely all food production in the hands of corporations.
How far off is Soylent Yellow, Soylent Red and eventually Soylent Green? Are these new federal regulations a step in the direction? You Decide!
