March 21st was the International Day For the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, and those working in the food justice space are aware that it's a long term, deeply rooted problem that needs to be constantly fought. Where's the starting place? Ahem - Admitting there's a cultural tradition deeply rooted in property acquisition and dependency culture, through food and medicine, that comes from the others "not-owning-property".
In fact, food has both been a tool for racial discrimination, as well as a liberating force against it.
Decentralized food systems automatically need local employees, local distribution, and local nutrients in order to supply the needs of those nearby. If it were centralized, the people would have no method to guide its development for themselves.
