Wendell Berry’s Boutique

Organic
zero-waste stream
permaculturally designed
and cooperatively owned
farms
are no more or less Democratic-Boutique ecopolitics

Than AgriBusiness
extractive anti-ecological
rather than restorative-ecosystemic therapy,
competitively owned
and Business as Usual capitalist-colonizing designed
multinational conglomerates of anthro-hubris greed,
are no more or less Totalitarian Universal Supremacist ecopolitics.

I heard a young woman farmer
raising grass-fed cattle
on her small organic farm
designed to restore health to Southern
RedState topsoil,
as well as to her kids’ kids,
future farmers of Postmillennial America.

She believed the small scale
of her natural-spiritual restorative farming economy
placed her at a disadvantage
to receive government operational loans
as compared to multinational agribusiness conglomerates
using chemicals and pesticides
to kill topsoil
and extract short-term nutritional values
at long-term disinvested cost
to future healthy generations
and their dreams to health-wealth thrive.

A government farm subsidy expert responded:

If we don’t have enough capital to loan to everyone,
we are forced to give priority funding
to larger scale producers
with capacity to provide more than sufficient this-year nutrients
for our large domestic and foreign flooding markets.

She did not mention costs of growing obesity
and simultaneous malnutrition,
dual-poignant trends.

She did add,
The agricultural sector is complex,
composed of large agribusinesses
and small boutique operations,
and all are welcome by UncleDonald to apply,
after first saluting the TrumpTowers,

But she left unchallenged
the Farmer’s original matriotic complaint
of an uneven ecopolitical playing field
that actually favors large patriarchal corporate greed operations
invested in toxic
extractive
farming-as-raping sociopathic practices.

As I was listening to the farm subsidy expert
on competitive economics
make her case for giving separate but
only marginally unequal value
to these diverse nutritional scales,
small and more robustly large,
with distinct investment niches
available for public dollar support
of a presumably synergetic-democratic agricultural department,
without conceding undue favor to AgriBusiness multinationals.

Separatists, yes;
Supremacists for BusinessAsUsual, no.

I was starkly reminded
of an OldSchool KKK spokesman
who last year said
the WhiteBrother Klans are racial separatists
but not WhiteMale Supremacists.

It does feel like a pathological distinction
without a healthy,
non-WhiteWashed, difference
for present
or future lives
of and for thriving nutritional diversity,
deep sacred-secular ecological synergy.

When will pre-millennial threats
ever learn how to hear post-millennial therapies
as other than Boutiquely Synergetic?

I know…
I know!…
When we have to grow together
rather than continue failing apart.
