But the state-run farms sounds like an interesting idea, and this is a setting where poor people can potentially get more NUTRITIOUS food instead of the junk they are usually relegated to for various reasons -- agribusiness has to dump its surplus somehow, right?
I think we should move to a society of real full employment -- not what passes for full employment at the Federal Reserve (you know, the body that raises interests rates so businesses can't afford to borrow money to expand their operations, and thus causes working people to be thrown out of work, which is a tactic to control inflation?). If private enterprise isn't hiring, the federal, state, and local government should always be hiring.
