Raj Patel discusses Stuffed and Starved

What do you think about Patel's perspective? Do you think he is correct in his diagnosis of the problems with the food system? Do you agree or disagree with the kinds of solutions he suggests (getting angry rather than feeling guilty, having a "democratic conversation about food" rather than approaching the issue as consumers, etc.)?


  1. AK,
    Thanks for posting this. Sometimes it is easier to fully understand the author when I can put a face to the words. It also helps to hear the authors focus, rather than trying to deduct it from several pages of written text.

  2. I don't think "getting angry" is the only solution. However, I think Patel suggests that it is one of the faster solutions to the problem
