I once attended a wedding party where half the food was piled up in waste dust bin . Everyone wanted to appear big by wasting food. This is preposterously odious to the very superlative. Let the religious sacerdotal orders preach this holy sermon in their temples. Finally, this: for any government to destroy excess food reserves in order to drive up prices for farmers as used to be done in parts of the West emblemizes the worst-case scenarios of voodoo agricultural economics ever imaginable and grossly oblivious of ultimate dire consequences You’ll never win on that. Personally I hate it when big portions are put in front of me. Then I get asked “what’s wrong with the meal”.. nothing, I ate what I wanted.
