Spot on!

The abstracted idealised pro-Vegan advocacy is so often devoid of
material content. This is worsened by deploying  the tactic of
shopping choices.

"The result is that today, private interest and political prejudices
often hide behind the grandest talk of “ethical” diets and planetary
sustainability even as the consequences may be nutritional
deficiencies, biodiversity-destroying monocultures and the erosion of
food sovereignty....."

"For all the warm talk, global food policy is really an alliance of
industry and capital intent on both controlling and distorting food
production. We should recall Marx’s warnings against allowing the
interests of corporations and private profit to decide what we should
eat."

Foster's excellent contribution about Marx and food (linked to in the
article) , is another useful antidote.
