Parma ham probe shakes confidence in EU gourmet labels
"Fink Hansen added that it is “imperative that our top-of-the-class genetic materials … are not misused or used for other purposes than intended.”"
Like what? Not making piglets?

Parma ham probe shakes confidence in EU gourmet labels
"The Danish lineage is among the best performing ones: You feed them like an Italian pig but get out more piglets and leaner meat, which leads to more income … When law abiding breeders discovered significant income differences between themselves and those using Danish lineage, they decided to speak out.”"

This is Wheat Farming
"But we don’t see our local wheat farmers at the farmers market. We don’t ask how his or her day went or how the kids are doing. Many of us, myself included, haven’t really understood what wheat farming involves. It seems monolithic. Remote."

"But the question he goes on to ask is more urgent: what propels the tyrant forward? He falls back on Hegel for the answer: tyrants are driven by an appetite for recognition that will be satisfied only when they are recognised by all of humanity. Trump’s craving for recognition is perhaps notable only in the bareness of its expression, but what is particular, and particularly dangerous, about him is that instead of trying to gain more recognition from more people, he has shrunk the imaginary number of those who count as ‘the people’. The first task of resistance to Trump will be to expand it."
This could do with unpacking. Does he mean that T doesn't care what liberals, or the press, or technocrats, think?

"One way to address Trump voters is not by telling them that he is lying or that he is horrifying – they get that – but rather by showing quite coolly the ways in which he is betraying their expectation that he would restore some measure of equity between the elites and the rest of the public."
Crucial.

"The ‘problem of oligarchy’, the ‘gerrymandered system’ and the ‘odd American idea that giving money to political campaigns is free speech’ are asides in Snyder’s account, not the main business."
I haven't read Snyder, only listened to a recent interview, but if true this does give me pause.

A Eulogy for #Occupy
"No one walked away from Occupy the same person. The occupiers will always say “we learned so much,” and the simplicity of the words belie how deep the change runs. We all learned so much in the season of Occupy. We learned there is a hostile army threaded through our nation. We learned that children can be casually brutalized, just to keep traffic from being inconvenienced."
