. clicked on the link below and watched some snippets.  Based on my brief
sampling,  it was not about "food"  and it was not a "dialogue".   It was,
IMO, orchestrated and rehearsed  set of instructions on how you should think
and talk about industrial agriculture.


I thought the most sinister point was the attempt to create a moral
equivalence between multinational corporations that dominate industrial
agriculture and the farmers and consumers who do not want their food supply
to be controlled by multinationals.    


There is no moral equivalence between Monsanto and the Oklahoma Food Coop.

.............no moral equivalence between Tyson and D.A.R.P. 

   ........no moral equivalence between Cargill and Paulette Rink, Charles
Horn, April Harrington, etc.
