Archemedes (287 BC - 212 BC), the great Greek philosopher and scientist said,
"Give me a place to stand, and with a lever, I will move the whole world.”That has been a problem so far for Small Flockers. The more we push for change, the more the Chicken Mafia deflect or move out of the way. What Small Flockers need is something to push against, so as to put the Chicken Mafia between a rock and a hard place.
Perhaps Jamie Oliver is that something (or someone) that Small Flockers can push against with the Chicken Mafia caught in between.
Jamie is a chef from Essex England, now world famous for his work in getting safe, nutritious food for children in English schools. For the past 7 years, he has been trying to do the same for US school children.
Farm to fork, or farmer to chef. These are two excellent bookends in which to frame the Chicken Mafia, so they can't escape.
In Feb. 2010, Jamie was invited to be a speaker at TED. Jamie continued his crusade against obesity in children from bad food nutrition. He showed how the US is spending $150 Billion per year in excess health care costs due to poor nutrition.
Jamie wants good food for families. Small Flockers want good food for families. Chicken Mafia say they do, but do exactly the opposite. One of his latest projects was in Huntington West Virginia USA. When he left that town after finishing his project, Huntington Kitchens continued on as a community kitchen to help people learn how to eat properly.
Watch the video, then get on your splash shield to protect yourself. When we start squeezing that Chicken Mafia pimple, you never know when it will pop. When it does, it will be pretty messy at first, but we'll get it put right soon enough.
