on different weighting of issues (a workgroup)

Submitted by lookin4 in Nutrition

The weighting of different issues is not in our own hands alone, our demand has been individualized which makes it extremely difficult today to bring radical change to nutrition so that everyone is sated and the whole nature no longer suffer this hard like today - at least from this issue.

As we need it to survive, I would like to start this as a survey about the habits you have how to get the food you eat (but, well, not in terms of buying, stealing or cultivating/producing it yourself!) and I want to crowdsource ideas on how-to act actively and passively to address all kinds of issues that comes with nutrition, like in a workgroup.

I think many people are aware of the following issues, but they are either overwhelmed or arrogant while some are ignorant. Nonetheless they have priorities and views, if they know about it or not.

So let's start to be more precise in the answers to this post (feel free to add more of them, but mark them in any way maybe it is best practice to post as an answer to this initial post to make it easier to follow the different discussions):

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to participate in this conversation, but I just wanted to stop by to say that if you lookin4 would like to mod this forum you would be welcome.

Look at it like it's a brainstorming, there should be absolutely no pressure to answer with already practiced actions, a precise strategy or something worked out on a highly intellectual level. Every input is desired, because it sets inspiration and association free. I want it to be a counterbalance to answers understandable only by people in this subculture and also a counterbalance to the quotation/interpretation of philosophical works which only feature the issues abstractly. If at all.


Thanks for the suggestion, u/Tequila_Wolf! But I would like to hear the opinion of u/bmrgould01 on this. It seems like they are only temporarily inactive, so please let us wait for at least 1 month (considering their last activity). Also it would be helpful to get to know some expectations from the userbase, mods outside the forum and the admins beforehand.

Cool, I'm pro-brainstorming.

FYI, bmrgould01 hasn't been active in two months, nobody owns forums here, and ideally there would be multiple mods of any forum.

if your proposal is still valid, I'm ready to cooperatively moderate this forum with u/bmrgould01 if they're ever coming back - and until then just alone.

In the past I dumpster-dived here and there, took part in a local CSA, but today I am living somewhere else and I became someone running from one market to another, reading every label, compare ingredients, producing companies and the packaging. Spend much time inside the big corporations, get frustrated, buy nothing or only a few needed things, leave, regret, repeat.

Except for the CSA part nothing of this is or was radical. Either way I have not the patience to wait for the change effects that will happen someday. I may be a perfectionist in this matter, but that does not mean I like it. Damn it, I want new defaults in this world. It is unbelievable how others think anarchy will be chaos, but capitalism is not.
