If you’ve seen the proposed legislation that makes photographing factory “farms” illegal, you know that there are profoundly undemocratic forces interested in maintaining as much secrecy around food manufacturing as possible. This is not surprising given that information asymmetry is a route to profits for many corporations.

“If genetic modification and cloning are such wonderful things, why aren’t companies eager to advertise the use of these revolutionary techniques?
The answer is that they don’t want people to think about what they’re eating. The survival of the current food system depends upon widespread ignorance of how it really operates.”
