Omnivore’s Dilemma: Excuse-itarian Propaganda

January 31, 2012

B.R. Myers, book critic for the Atlantic Monthly magazine, has written a glaringly honest critique of Michael Pollan’s book The Omnivore’s Dilemma. Myers calls Pollan out on all accounts of factual and emotional ties to the current western food culture. If you have ever read the book, or intend to, I strongly recommend you read this review. I would attempt to paraphrase Myer’s article, but would butcher it almost immediately. So, instead of putting you through that I have attached the link: Hard to Swallow: The gourmet’s ongoing failure to think in moral terms by B.R. Myers. Also, I have attached a second article on a similar topic by B.R. Myers: The Morale Crusade Against Foodies.
