Opposition to Localvorism

The new issues of the Journal of Critical Animal Studies is out. The whole thing is worth reading, but I want to suggest reading the article "'Green' Eggs and Ham?" (pdf). The article is written by Vasile Stanescu (full disclosure, we're brothers), and is rigorous examination of the politics and principles of the localvore movement. Moreover, it is also something of an expose of the secret conservative nature of the intellectual founders of localvorism. I highly suggest this for anyone interested in localvorism, vegetarianism and veganism, and current food issues.
