Food Doesn't Need To Be Manufactured In Mega Farms
Not if all of us, in conjunction with the communities we live in, took to distributed, localized farming. The kind of farming that would make nearly independent "City States," in a more loosely defined Federation, possible. The kind of "City States" where we could be our own managers, and maintenance people, balancing automation with personal involvement, to make the basics we would then have a share in. The basics that we would then make our own end use items ourselves, thus changing the whole notion of production and distribution.
And we could do this without any further need of money; freeing up the real currency of the future, which is the free flow information.
