Raj Patel brings up a very interesting idea of food sovereignty. He describes it as humanity as a whole deciding their own food policy for the first tim in human history. He clearly indicates that solving our problems today requires solving a broad scope of problems on a broad scope of levels. He even raises the point of decreasing violence against women. Because in many developing countries, women put in most of the labor for food production, but have very few rights. Patel clearly has an idea of the massive range of interconnected problems that we are dealing with, and that they are things that go far beyond laws and regulations. Though, he points out that there is a strong movement towards solving this problem, especially amongst the American people. This can be supported by examples like Ron Finley. There are more and more individuals that are making their own choices, and making a powerful difference in the world.
