To make things worse, another animal made the entire human race its slave. Wheat domesticated us. It forced us to stick around for the harvest, horde up for years when the harvest might be bad, go from a life of a diverse diet to basically all carbs all the time. And it turned us from hunters to farmers.
As a vegan, I desperately want to hold onto my belief that wheat is a plant. As a human being, I want to maintain the belief that corn and rice also exist now and in history, and that wheat did not domesticate ‘us.’
