Do I contradict myself?

I realize that I've got posts today on the global grains crisis and on a butter party, the height of western decadence. Such is the life of the 21st-century omnivore.

No, you don't contradict yourself. You succinctly capture how we've been socialized into a system of consumerism that contradicts itself.

See? Isn't it nice to blame someone/thing else entirely? Now you go walk away with a clear conscience!

And now, my work here is done...

Whoops. That should have said, "Now you can walk away with a clear conscience." Ugh. I should go to bed.

A butter party? Bring it ON.

The grains crisis is horrifying. So glad to have 20+ buckets of winter white wheat in my basement. I'm making bread every day now....
