What is your food?

I've known for a long time about sushi not always being sushi, fake cheeses having wood pulp and I've known about Kobe beef not being Kobe beef. However, this article shines light on the problem globally with fake food being marketed to consumers.

 ZOMG we are all going to

 ZOMG we are all going to die! Can problems be any more Western than worrying about getting a different species of fish?

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

 How exactly does one sue

 How exactly does one sue or jail a huge agri-business corporation for fraud and other crimes?

System totally rigged to make lawyers rich and politicians in power. Your tax dollars at work. Perhaps anarchism would work better, where the bad actors are taken out.

 

Taxation is the price we pay for failing to build a civilized society. The higher the tax level, the greater the failure. A centrally planned totalitarian state represents a complete defeat for the civilized world, while a totally voluntary society represents its ultimate success. --Mark Skousen

You don't especially when they have those lawyers and money to spend.
