The Scoop

Landship Foods is inspired by the conviction that growing and eating healthy food is one of the most important things we can do for both ourselves and the broader communities of which we are a part. The name comes from the language of pre-industrial Europe. Before the enclosure movement and the associated rise in notions of private property swept England, the suffix “-ship” (as in "relationship," or "friendship") referred to an object or an abstraction with collective duties and mutual rights. Thus, the term “landship” suggests that land was an entity through which humans were joined to each other by a set of rights and responsibilities. I advocate for a revival of this awareness.

I can't add much to this. Well-said Dr. Cobb

A historian of culture and politics in the US south writes about GA's experience with economic downturn: Dr. Cobb's essay The broader trend towards unbridled laissez-faire economics (or, "neoliberalism" in academic-economic talk) is a global phenomenon with its roots in the early 1970s. Therefore it should be quite clear that it is cause of, not solution to, our current economic woes.
