Civil Disobedience on a Plate

• Lew Rockwell
Instead of the old dance-and-drug-type rave, these are raves where foodies gather to craft, sell, talk about, and share their food in underground farmer's markets, away from all of the bureaucracy and tyranny of the federal food fuzz. These are people who are sick and tired of the stifling, despotic regulations keeping them from freely transacting with customers at local farmer's markets. They are weary of wasting productive time filling out maddening amounts of paperwork while chasing down one arbitrary stipulation after another. They've had it with the fees for health permits, liability insurance, and the use of commercial kitchens to comply with laws. They are denying the pay-offs to bureaucrats and "public safety" gatekeepers. (See my piece on Michigan's cottage food laws.)
