Food, Inc.

Thoughts:

Since not only are we justified in thinking to buy things that are more affordable, but also that our palates are so hard-wired to three kinds of tastes named after ‘salt’, ‘sugar’, and ‘fat’, we cannot simply blame junk food manufacturers for manipulating us. We are the ones who actually made the choice to buy burgers over raw fish, sodas over cultured milk, and  potato chips over carrots!

The problems with the production of junk food are manifold. It is first of all against animal rights, then destructive to the environment, degenerative of and even toxic to our health, and disrespectful to and even divisive of human wholeness and integrity- all done in the name of  ‘Mammon’ if you look at it theologically!! This false god acquires the name ‘efficiency’ in accordance with the modern spirit of neo-liberalism.

We are not just bowing down to what we buy and what we eat. Learn a lesson from the postliberals: We Are our choice and we Become what we eat.

The recognition of how deep all of us as consumers are involved in idolatry in our neo-liberal cultic eating habit is one important step toward the worship of our one true God who creates this earth.
