Abstract

The Green New Deal offers a chance not only to fashion legislative proposals that can advance economic justice and ecological sustainability but also create space for conversation about the unjust and unsustainable nature of capitalism and the industrial worldview. One key component of both legislation and conversation should be a response to the crisis in contemporary agriculture. Repopulating the countryside and developing ecologically based farming practices will be central to creating a more just and sustainable society.
