i agree with you up to a point
but industrialising food production has freed millions of workers to take other jobs in a variety of industries, and thus create the commercial infrastructure we have now.
not saying this is ultimately a good thing, and it certainly can’t last much longer, but at the same time i can’t see there being enthusiastic anticipation of a return to peasantry
Neither do I believe that pre-industrial agriculture produced vast amounts of surplus food per acre…though in no sense am i a food producer.
even if micro farming works for the individual and local region, we run into transport problems when trying to feed cities.
