Organic rather than transgenetic.
Labor instead of chemicals.
Diversity in place of monoculture.

there are signs of autumn in the biomass in the berm beside the suburban cornfield today...some anthropogenic trash too...when i finally got to he dense yellow #2 i found one ear on the closely spaced plants had split its husk ( the other ear feels as if it might have a kernel or two on it but it is mostly a failure )...and if you look closely near dead center of the fourth photo you will see a larger ear split open as wee...there are quite a few out there actually and if this seed could produce a second generation worth calling that these corn plants could, in a limited way, reseed themselves...puts some pressure on iltus's catastrophic sexual mutation business...corn didn't do that on its own anyway...it had human help...signs of fall everywhere as the corn plants die back from the bottom up...which, incidentally, is what the teosinte plant in the sixth photo is doing...the husks on their ears split open as well...imagine that behavior as genetically disrupted by human artificial selection.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
