Kibbutzim Say ‘Soy’-anara to Socialism

The NY Times reports,

Soy food, for some Israeli kibbutzniks, is the modern equivalent of biblical manna, the food that appeared miraculously to the Israelites in the wilderness. In fact, for two kibbutzim – the farming collectives that were central to early Israeli statehood – the soy business has been a savior of sorts, steering them from their socialist roots to capitalism, and providing financial security in the process.

Ahhh… so soy‘s to blame for the capitalist infiltration that destroyed the kibbutzim. And soy from G-d at that. Makes perfect sense.
