Dr. Sabaté clearly does not understand agriculture. During the period that he idealizes with the small farm with a small plot, harmonious animals and rainbows, people in the US were starving because agricultural output did not meet demands. We have met demands for food by industrialized food production. This is true everywhere in the world. The vast majority of countries that depend on small hold and non-industrialized agriculture are net importers of food and would be in serious danger without the availability of food produced by the most efficient agricultural system in the world, that we take for granted in the US.
