A reporter asked me, “If you strike and shut down GM, won't you be biting the
hand that feeds you?”We aren't biting the hand that feeds us. We are biting the
hand that slapped us, cheated us, and robbed us. First, we'll bite the hand.Then,
we'll go for the throat. What have we got to lose? The leaders of the Concession
Caucus are already waving the white flag. They're talking about concessions and
compromise and “equality of sacrifice” as if the big cheeses didn't have golden ...

Paternalism, 1925–1927 Of the many inhuman outrages of this present year, the
only case where the proposed lynching did not occur, was where the men armed
themselves. . . . The lesson this teaches and which every Afro-American should
ponder well, is that a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black
home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give.

We all know the saying about never biting the hand that feeds us. Similarly, we
cannot bite the hand that feeds what feeds us either: the ecological productive
base. The ideology of cheap food has helped to give shape to an industry that is
undermining its (and, thus, our) very existence. What we are currently doing in
the name of food security is actually having just the opposite effect. We have
created a system that is inherently unsustainable. And there is nothing secure
about that.

The police or Mark or Mark's parents?' 'Everybody.' He kicked at a pile of
newspapers on the floor of Mark's room. Ella tried to calm him. 'No point in biting
the hand that feeds us. We don't have to go straight away. We can stay here for a
bit.' Donny stood still on the landing, his hands in his pockets, with bitter humour
in his eyes. 'Listen. I would bite not only the hand that feeds me but any other
fucking hand within tooth-reach: the helping fucking hand; the hand across the
sea; the hand ...

Thomas Hobbes's Fourth Law of Nature calls for gratitude to those who benefit us
. We don't, he explains, want to discourage those who, with no prior obligation to
do so, do us a good turn. He has a point. When people put themselves out on our
behalves, we ought to make clear that we appreciate the kindness. That tends to
stimulate more of such behavior, while ingratitude tends to extinguish it. Biting the
hands that feed us is not rationally to be commended. All this is undone if ...

humans choose for us. When you're as sophisticated as we are, you can carry off
any name really.

There is also active debate on whether returns are greater from investment in
dryland as against irrigated agriculture, and from small rather than large irrigation
projects. Private sector tubewell irrigation, so extensive and successful in south
Asia, can enhance the efficiency of surface water irrigation both as a supplement
at times of highest returns, and by rescuing percolation losses that recharge the
aquifers173. We are in acute danger of biting the hand that feeds us on a world
scale.
