5. "pressure Congress through through education, protest and targeted campaigns"

when has THAT ever worked? Seems to me that just doesn't fit with the status quo. Would be like trying to convince the NY Giants to start playing cricket.

While I think this is a very important subject I found this piece to be mostly the same ranting against the same corporations followed by unrealistic solutions that have never worked. Also the idea that you can just plow up any dirt and grow food is naive. Capitalism is not collapsing, efficient food production is not a "disaster" and the planet is not dead yet.
