Frequent commenter and newly minted PhD (biology) Monica Hughes has launched a new project.
The group, Free Agriculture – Restore Markets (FA/RM), advocates agricultural and health policies based solely on the principles of individual rights.
The protection of a person’s basic rights to growing, producing, selling, buying, and eating the food of his or her choice — which are applications of the fundamental rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness — require a separation of economy and state. We support the right of producers and consumers to grow, sell, manufacture, and trade food supplies to mutual benefit without government interference. Based on objective fraud and tort laws, the courts can adjudicate cases of harm to consumers due to negligence or fraud.
This is not anarchy. This is free-market capitalism.
Also, check out the blog, where Monica reports on a lot of really shocking stuff, such as small family farmers being the target of SWAT raids right here in “The Land of the Free.”
