Diana Young - we have to dispel our own weaponized ignorance yes...
Wow, I used to think Norman Borlaug was a great man, but from the last 6-8 years of learning about Paleo, Natural Movement, factory farming and all the things that tie in with that - plus this article - my perspective may have changed completely. Still, it's an interesting thing to note that Norman Borlaug hasn't changed -(he's been dead for almost 10 years) just my perspective has shifted. Consequently, he was never a good guy that went evil or even just an evil guy trying to harm the world. He was a person doing what he thought was right, and although it might have seemed right in the moment, the world has likely gotten to a point (and will continue heading in this direction) where it's recognized that the techniques he used were probably responsible for extensive environmental damage.

How 4 companies control almost all the meat you eat | Daily Ticker - Yahoo Finance
"The former AP reporter hopes that his book raises awareness of these food power structures that have been "hidden for a long time." He also hopes that Washington legislators use anti-trust regulations to limit the power of the top four meat producers and increase the power of farmers. What are the odds of that happening? Almost nil, according to Leonard. "In 2010 and 2011 when there was a really ambitious reform agenda proposed by President Barack Obama, it was absolutely dismantled, pushed back and defeated by the meat industry lobbyists” and probably "did more damage than if they had not proposed to do anything" at all."
