Although Daniel Quinn hasn’t amounted to much since his breakthrough book Ishmael, still: hot damn, that was one hell of a book. The realization that I lived in a culture that locked up it’s food in order to force us to work was a brutal shock. Come to think of it, it still is a brutal shock, because that’s one of those “hidden in plain sight” secrets that’s easy to forget for months at a time.
One of the best illustrations of how absurd and horrific our Great Nation really is would have to be the saga of Food Not Bombs, an activist francise that’s dedicated to the radically dangerous act of feeding homeless people. Yep. They set up public kitchen and give away meals—generally vegan and organic, to boot—to anyone and everyone who wants some food.
The story of how America has responded to these allegedly peaceful and well-intentioned terrorists will make your heart swell with patriotic pride. Or, it might make you puke.
