Slow Food co-optation

I've been reading alot of interesting stuff here since I worked with a land 
trust in Mass. to design a community garden, and located the CGA site as a 
support for them.  My first contribution.....  on slow food........

It's clear from the great back and forth perspectives here that, like many 
excellent movements, reforms, and other directions that spring from peoples' 
need to "stay human" and maintain control over their lives, that the slow 
food movement is part of that larger "revolution" to sustain health, support 
farmers, undercut the frightening profit making conglomerates, to rejuvenate 
a sustainable humanity.  It's also clear that like everything valuable, there 
is a co-optable eyeball on this.  How can profiteers use this for their own 
ends?  How do people keepa hold on their movements and further direct them to 
benefit the most needy?

It's very neat to see so many important discussions capture these twin issues 
so ofter and so clearly.  I'm sending this set of back & forths on to other 
groups.   Laurie
