To support war-time rationing. Sounds like a good idea, even now.

The only problem with number four is that the same agency that put this out is the one that is now forcibly shutting down "local" farms.

"Farming expanded to astronomical sizes in the 1910`s, farmers went deep into debt in an effort to expand their farms and buy out their neighbors` farms, etc."

Going into debt on the assumption that the good times will always roll and ending up in the crapper when the tide turns?

Same old story.

Eat just meat, fish, broccoli, lettuce, onions, garlic, Italian bread and butter.

They did this because they had to feed Europe. Farming expanded to astronomical sizes in the 1910`s, farmers went deep into debt in an effort to expand their farms and buy out their neighbors` farms, etc.

Then the Europeans began growing again after the war and prices collapsed, and the farmers were stuck with low food prices and high debt. This was actually an underlying cause of the depression, and the pain felt even during the 20`s was only made worse during the Depression. The over-farming in the previous decade also caused the Dustbowl.

I can just imagine what would happen if we had to go to Ration Books like they had in WWII. People would be throwing tantrums and screaming from the mountains.
