When it comes to food, technology won’t save us

A fellow blogger Janina commented on it. I am reproducing his words here.
This is a great argument against the technology-driven, big-ag “food security” approach which focuses on the “need to feed the world” through more and flashier technological inventions. It addresses what I have been thinking about a lot lately: “Technology, we’re promised, is fast and easy. Which is good because, as it happens, we also don’t want to change the way we eat. We want a sacrifice-free, everything-the-same-but-more-of-it future. And that’s not really a future we can have.”

What do you think of that argument?
