Weapons of Reason 5 – Food issue: What’s Eating the World?
Weapons of Reason 5: The fifth issue of Weapons of Reason is all about food, and the extraordinary lengths that we’ll go to produce it. We investigate the damage that production and consumption are doing to our bodies and our planet, and the means and methods by which we might instigate change for good.
‘In this issue, we ask our audience to read more about concepts like food colonialism and our destructive historic relationship with agrochemicals, as well as taking more simple actions like trying to make fermented foods at home to improve gut health or joining a CSA (community supported agriculture) scheme.
It’s still a big ask for readers to put down what they’re reading and buy a book, donate to a campaign or sign up to take direct action, so we’re trying to find new ways to encourage people to do that. In the future, I think that’ll be more about generating a community with what we do through real-life events, and a dedicated section of the new website (which is in progress) that’s all about taking action.’
