(NaturalNews) Today's regulatory climate of cruel intolerance towards raw milk, home-grown foods, and various other fruits of one's labor that exist outside the corporate food structure is eerily similar to the climate Native Americans faced when the Spanish Conquistadors first arrived on the shores of the "New World." Similar to what the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently did to Pennsylvania Amish farmer Dan Allgyer as well as to many others, these Spanish Conquistadors banned highly-nutritious, native foods like quinoa and amaranth because they were fearful of superstition, and prohibited all people from consuming them.

Amaranth and quinoa are two of the most highly-nutritious and well-balanced foods in the world, which is why native Inca tribes and others often used them in religious ceremonies. The perfect balance of complete proteins and amino acids, these two grain-like crops have long been cherished by native cultures as superfoods, and are only today beginning to get renewed recognition and appreciation here in Western culture.

But long before they made their recent comeback, these two superfoods were strictly prohibited throughout the Americas, as the Spanish considered the grains to be blasphemous foods rooted in pagan religious practices. In fact, the "regulatory bodies" of the day threatened anyone who tried to grow either amaranth or quinoa with strict penalties, which in some cases even included death (http://www.mexconnect.com).

Does this scenario sound familiar? It should, because it is exactly how the FDA and many state and local authorities treat raw milk today. Continually citing superstitious nonsense about its so-called dangers, raw milk has been the subject of many recent raids and regulatory crackdowns, one of which recently shut down an entire Pennsylvania Amish farm (http://blog.chron.com).

Many Americans today, in other words, are facing the same unjust and outlandish treatment by their supposed public servants as the Native Americans did when Europeans first arrived in their countries. In many ways, the fight for food freedom today in the so-called "land of the free" closely resembles that of ancient cultures, many of which were wiped out by foreign invaders.

But the common thread in all this is that, like cultures of old, many people today are openly resisting government tyranny, and continuing to grow, cultivate, consume, and even sell the foods of their choice. And it is this civil disobedience, coupled with aggressive opposition to civil tyranny, that will once again restore food freedom for all, that is if enough Americans are willing to fight for it.
