The New Feudalism

I spotted a new discussion called “Farming’s New Feudalism” on the Worldwatch Institute’s website. It seems this fits right in with the general trend in the US to bring about a massive transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich. We can see the same thing happening down on the farm.

Look forward to a feudal future with a handful of super-rich aristocrats who own everything, and a vast pool of soldiers and serfs (that’s us) who will give our lives on the battlefield, in the factories, and on the farms. If you get injured, fall ill, or die, it will mean as much to the aristocrats as the death of a bug. They’ll have plenty more throwaway people.
