16. Sure, why not, if you're talking healthy food?
and then charge a premium for junk food, fast food, gourmet foods, etc.

I know you were ribbing me, but when we force people into an economic model that requires them to pay for those things that would otherwise be free, or gathered under the efforts of your own labor, then we create a responsibility to ensure that those same people have the econmic means to survive in that model. In other words, living wages, affordable healthcare, etc.

Other wise you are simply creating a society of economic servitude. Slaves for the 21st century.
