What has happened to us? How did we get here? All this fuss about food. For what?
To guilt? To prod? To convince? To deny? To incite? To master? To prove? Disprove?
Or all the above?
Why is it that these food wars persist? Only in American culture do we feel the full brunt of food as an issue. Something to be discussed rather than enjoyed. Food for thought rather than for pleasure. Food to be managed, piece-mealed rather than eaten freely, without hesitation or concern.
Vegan, vegetarian, semi-vegetarian, raw, meat–take your pick. Just shut up and eat.
Kaukab doesn’t want to hear it and neither do I.
