I was recently a guest on the Lew Rockwell podcast. Mr. Rockwell is a well-known libertarian writer and speaker, so naturally we had a lot to discuss. While certainly not all paleo/real-food types are libertarians or vice versa, there does seem to be a strong cross-pollination going on. There’s even a paleo-libertarian discussion group on the internet.
Well, it makes sense. When you watch films like Farmageddon and see how the government beats up on small farmers selling unprocessed food to consumers who want to buy it, that will (or should, anyway) tend make you suspicious of government power and a supporter of individual liberty. And of course, the type of person who believes the USDA and the FDA are corrupt and can’t be trusted isn’t generally your pro-government type.
