What's Wrong With Our Food System?

What is wrong with our food system?  Mostly, the fact that we demand crappy cheap food that isn't good for us!  This video is based on good information with a bad interpretation.  If we're ever going to be able to get high quality, nutritous food for rich and poor, we'll need the same greed and capitalism that drives the industrial food system to bring us what we're asking for now.

Watch the vid, this kid nails his speech!  Even though I don't take the editorializing too seriously, I agree that the  industrial food chain we currently feed a nation with is sub-optimal for health and/or environmental sustainability.  I hope that Joel Salatin's model may be reproduced many times over.

I don't think any of the needed changes will happen any time soon.
