An unflattering look inside America's corporate-controlled food industry.

An unflattering look inside America’s corporate controlled food industry.  The film’s first segment examines the industrial production of meat (chicken, beef, and pork), calling it inhumane and economically and environmentally unsustainable. The second segment looks at the industrial production of grains and vegetables (primarily corn and soy beans), again labeling this economically and environmentally unsustainable. The film’s third and final segment is about the economic and legal power, such as food label laws of the major food companies, the profits of which are based on supplying cheap but contaminated food, the heavy use of petroleum-based chemicals (largely pesticides and fertilizers), and the promotion of unhealthy food consumption habits by the American public.  It shows companies like Wal-Mart transitioning towards organic foods as that industry is booming in the recent health movement.  More at Wikipedia.

The story of Thanksgiving, with its costumed Pilgrims, turkeys and pumpkin pie, zigzags through American history with some surprising twists.
In the 19th Century, some southern states thought Thanksgiving was an abolitionist plot and refused to celebrate it and Thanksgiving didn’t become an annual national holiday until World War II.
Thanksgiving… What started as a somber Puritan day of prayer is now about commercial sales, football and food.
How did we get there?

    So, in fact, the holiday was an outright thievery of original Native American Thanksgiving. As usually, stolen by the white Men.

    Well at least you don’t have to feel obligated to buy presents. It’s kind of nice to take a rare break in the middle of the week and be with friends and family. No one is making you shop, watch tv or football. People that line up to go to walmart or kmart or minimart —it’s their lives.
