The Museum of Appalachia, near Knoxville, Tennessee, is a fascinating working farm containing much local history.
I blogged “Who Owns the Land?” about this book on March 8, 2018. As I re-read my synopsis, I am impressed,once again, with Pearce’s comprehensive but compassionate take on the shifts in proprietorship of arable land over the world. This remains a must-read book for those who want to rescue the planet from the ravages of eco-warfare on a grand scale.
A compelling book by a journalist and investigative reporter who lived among the Huaorani, primitive jungle dwellers who live off the land in Ecuador. They are known as fierce warriors who have never been conquered. “Who are the Savages?” was the title of my blog posted February 20, 2018.
I haven’t read any of the books you’ve mentioned. I read recently that Bill Gates, the largest private owner of farmland in America, recently purchased a large patch of farmland in North Dakota. Very disturbing.
Do you think Bill Gates intends to farm it humself? Maybe he will program a batch of automatons to do the grunt work.
I think Gates will land bank eat to increase food shortages and pressure people to eat his fake meat.
As you have noted, local food production is a good counterploy to the control freaks like Gates.
