When did social justice become about food?
In my day, way back in the 1990’s, social justice was about fighting discrimination, feeding the hungry, housing the poor, rights for gays and women and battling isms of all sorts.
Now all I hear about is about food. Maybe it’s where I live, L.A. (hipsterville blech), but all anyone talks about anymore is buying local and organic, GMOs, being vegan and then feeling superior to everyone else.
I understand this country needs a food revolution, but more so than a person needing any kind of food, shelter, protection from violence in the home, clothes, etc? Not to me.
I almost feel like the younger generation cares more about what they eat than the fact that some people have nothing to eat. This is so bourgeois. And I am beginning to dislike people who talk more about being vegan that genocide in Syria and the homeless people they walk by day after day.
