Nationally local farmers are facing stiff penalties for growing and selling organic food. This drive against independent farming is linked to Agenda 21, and it is their goal to shut down all of these small farms. However, the liberal left and establishment politicians know this is not a very popular policy, so they lie and say the support local organic farms. Agenda 21 is set up to shut down Local farms and protect the monopoly of huge Monsanto "farms". In the case of a collapse, it is the independent farms that would remain in business. In a utopian/authoritarian system, as envisioned by the liberals, independent farms would not fit their collective communitarian plans.
