American Farmer: The Heart of Our Country

I recently put my hands on a copy of American Farmer: The Heart of Our Country, a gorgeous coffee-table book filled with amazing photographs. Every so often there is an interview tucked in between the portraits. Last night I read this, a comment from Doug Mosebar, from page 24:

"We're approaching a tipping point in America, where unless we're very careful we're going to end up relying more on imported food than the food we're producing on our own soil. And I think that's pretty scary. Something's got to give. But I think often times in life things have to get worse before they get better. So as this situation gets worse, I think there will be enough public outcry that it will give politicians enough, I'll say mettle, to do what needs to be done. Because we're all in this together. We tend to, in our culture, compartmentalize ourselves and act as if one segment doesn't affect the others, but it really does."

The book was published in 2008. I wonder if we're already seeing the shift...
