Walmart is only the latest wave in the corporate-industrial concentration of the food system, but its stranglehold is significant… Unfortunately, I don’t think ‘voting with our wallets’ and getting pissed at Wal-Mart is gonna cut it.  Stories like this might be important for awareness-raising, but they risk missing the bigger picture of industrial-capitalist control over food, and making us think that changing our consumption habits will change the food system.  Not that buying local isn’t great, but it’s easy for it to be incorporated as one more consumer choice among others.

Remember, we vote with our wallets every day !!!!
