The story of any political and ethical battle as wages only through the arena of buying specefic commodities.

The Chad option is an entire political plan and structure that means shifting most of the land used already for human consumption and not to animal feed. Much of the richest soil in the country is used to grow soybeans and corn for animal feed. This is of course entirely overlooked in a program based entirely on individual action.

People also need to support more local farmers and businesses.

We keep ceding more and more power to these massive, global mega corps that ravage our planet.

Folks want to help save the planet through their eating habits? Walk your ass down to a local farmers market, coop, or whole trader.

Every state in the union and every country in the world has a local flavor that's worth treasuring. And this big Corp fucks shouldn't be allowed to package it, brand it, and dilute it.

It means Sam Harris is a far right propagandist and provocateur who pretends to not be those things and frequently claims to be taken out of context and he is fine being in bed with alt right provacateurs "free speech" absolutists.

I'm not joking. And whether or not Centrists agree with me is up to them.

Yeah I'm gonna have to doubt that a bit. Far-right? Bullcrap. I've seen him tear down religion in some well made arguments, he's one of the biggest atheists I've ever heard of. For all you know he didn't know Sargon said the N word at all, and for that matter, how do I know Sargon did use it?

Annihilating ancient jungles, enslaving people to mill quinoa, cartels selling avocados, and almonds sucking entire reservoirs dry are problems that cannot be ignored.

The vegan diet is better in some ways, as bad or far worse in others. If it is a consumerist based practice, it is terrible for the planet in one way or another.

A move toward local, sustainable, and varied diets (plus a little old fashioned corp busting) is the better answer.

I entirely agree but it does take a lot more of a program than, "shop local more".

One thing rarely discussed about America's food economy for instance is that five companies are responsible for a vast majority of the food economy, and maybe two or three companies for a majority of all the seeds. Reviving local food economies won't stop at shifting sourcing to local food marts (which I might add aren't always trustworthy, there are people who pass themselves off as local farms but who just buy bulk commercial produce at shipping centers, which is a significant problem). You will need to literally break several monopolies, an entire policy of land use stilted towards people like the Bundies (they actually get their land from the US government way, way below market value then have the audacity in their wealth to demand it for free when they're already shelling out below value).

I am game though for burning some Florida mansions.

And yet us black people can say the N-word and have no consequences.

I'll take "What is word reclamation for $200, Alex.
The slur has always been a tool of white oppression over Black bodies. White people cannot separate themselves from this context and its impact when they use this slur, regardless of their intent. However, Black people, like other marginalized groups, can attempt to reclaim the word to build community, acknowledge a shared experience or strip the slur of its power.

Oh hey I just forget we black people can use a derogatory racial slur to describe White People too, and nobody gets riled up about that. I hate racist White Folks myself, but I also hate racist Black folks as well.

I think the difference is that both in America and globally, slurs used by white people to demean black people have historically and currently been used to justify their oppression while black people use it to attack the oppression they face

Call me when black people have enslaved white people on the scale that America has and fought a civil war, up to and including having separate water fountains, forcing them to sit at the back of the bus and lynchings.
