I can’t tell you how much shame I feel when I read an article like this:
Food is a big topic in all in all three of my Govicide books–Comply, Survive, and Resist. In the first, my main character discovers The Masses only get to try a small portion of all the possible foods within the OWG. Of course, the elites get anything they want.
In Survive, Michael Locke and his girlfriend find out what it means to starve. They realize how much they don’t know about how food is made, grown, and created. Until that point in their lives, food just “appeared” on their doorstep. I put them in a situation where they have to go out and find food. And it’s tough.
In Resist, the two find out what happens when people are allowed to freely grow and make the food they want with no government interference. And how people when given the chance will enjoy providing food for others, as long as they receive something–cash–in return.
I guess when I wrote those 3 books I never thought we’d have stories about the rampant spreading of food stamps in our society so soon. I don’t like being so correct some times.
We have to remember: Food stamps don’t make food, laws don’t cure diseases, and guns don’t kill people. In all three cases, and many more, people do.
