As the years went bye and I got older, it was time to leave Japan. We moved to Hong Kong. One or two years in, I found a store down in Stanley Market that sold Twizzlers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I was so happy. So I bought them often and indulged. But somehow, it wasn’t the same feeling. By having them readily available and within such easy reach, I almost forgot why I was even eating them. Yes they tasted good, and yes the packaging still appealed to me, but I had changed. I was growing and becoming more independent and the stories that I built in my mind about my life weren’t as happy, probably because of the pressure of growing up and the unwanted move to a new place.

One thing that Dr. Ozimek is missing is the fact that most homesteaders are tax-paying citizens. Does he think that living on a homestead exempts one from property taxes? Does he suppose that their vehicles don’t have license plates or that their fuel is purchased without the requisite state gasoline tax? Or that maybe they have some special card that lets them buy things like feed without paying sales tax? Perhaps homesteading equipment like tractors and tools and off-grid appliances are likewise purchased without any gain to “society.”

Some other very important and rather repulsive facts about chocolate you also want to be aware of are revealed to us in “Poison with a Capital C.” “Every time you eat a chocolate bar, it may contain a rodent hair and 16 insect parts and still carry the blessing of the FDA.” And, “For chocolate powder or cakes there must not be more than 75 insect fragments in three tablespoons of powder.” And, “Four percent of cacao beans may be infested by insects. Animal excreta (such as visible rat droppings) must not exceed 10 milligrams per pound.”
