13. I agree, in theory...
But I can't fault nations such as Brazil or Argentina for trying to get the best deal they can out of an organization they were pulled into. We always push this "free trade" mantra, at least officially, if we abandoned it, we can then subsidize whatever industries we want. By the way, I didn't say there WEREN'T family farms, just that they were rare. Most food grown in the United States is grown on farms owned by multi-national corporations, this is just a fact.
