Reading Review: (Week 8)
I enjoyed this book and found it pretty easy while informational and it brings to the forefront some of the environmental and sociological problems that our society is faced with and these problems stem from the ways we respond or for that matter don’t respind to them and the evironment with our actions. A lot of issues in society deal with agricultural and how a lot of land is being comsumed for new housing developments and that the only way to farm os to be a large corporation. Farming is now a business and can no longer be done by small scale family farms. There is definitely a link between society and the environment including the way that we precieve it. Just like the first day of class and the words we wrote on the board. Agricutlure has been precieved as the backbone of civilization and without it the human race would be left without food unless we wnet out and produced it ourselves. I really lik how Berry refered to food as a weapon because in realtiy it is. If you don’t have food you starve and you will be more likely to give in to the powers that use food weapondry. Over some generations there has been changes in attitude toward the leading to a change in attitude toward life and society; people now want ease with out hasel and they want it fast. That is why there are so many fast food chains. We are now a fast-paced society the relys on machines. Every aspect of life is becoming mechanized, so it will preform faster but not nessecarily more efficient.
