Nothing New In The Yeast: The Case Of Brown V.s White

Nothing New In The Yeast: The Case Of Brown V.s White


I love my bread but I don’t know if its compressed or active dry yeast based, maybe it is instant yeast. I love my brown bread but I don’t like half-baked ideas yet it seems the rapid rise yeast is very popular now while fiercely competing against the deactivated yeast.

We live in a funny world nowadays in which social media outlets ask daily if you are for or against, do you like this or not, do you prefer brown or white …

Nothing new you may say and gosh I know this is a tad binary but you know what? We have been at it for centuries everything is like that, the world is in bicolour with a neat and preferred appetite for bleached concepts…

For example, do you like your bear polar or brown, do you enjoy your eggs white or brown, do you prefer your pasta brown or white, do you fancy your chocolate dark or pale, is the sugar of life best when it’s brown or when it’s white……and I am afraid the list is very long.

Really besides the obvious colour difference (damn I realize I forgot to mention brown and white rice to you), would it not be time to focus on the commonality of our differences rather than exhibit the wide range of unfounded whys, seemingly we do that with people too you know. Do black people matter less than white people you guys tell me because I am not getting it.

Not sure what intellectual diet some people follow but really you should be wary of all that wheat bluff, I see some of you don’t want me to make a whole meal out of this but maybe we should not favorize refined ideas that give nothing to your body and soul.

You should understand that you have nothing to gain except becoming a heavy weight of intolerance, what are you going to do with a bloated brain and a dysfunctional digestive system, is it what you want to feed your children with….

It is time to make some healthier replacements, it’s time to swap negative enzymes with solidarity anthems, it’s time to start your day with a new loaf of life which is not either or but

THE GOODNESS OF BOTH

Great message Pascal. My takeaway is: When will man ever learn? For me 'the goodness of both' starts from home.

The fractal concept is one that states, overtime all things will find their balance and shape. We can not shape the future but can harness this future with the understanding of outcomes. Your writing invokes a review of our inner selves and how we view others. You did so with graciousness and eloquence @Pascal Derrien.

The media and those that would harness the discontent have framed the debate that one bear is wrong and one is right. The one you choose depends on what forest you reside in. This is the wrong framework to resolution. Melting pots are fine, but we have to recognize our cultural differences. Truly stated, our value differences. My values are no better than someone else's but they do guide me as values guide others. What happens within freedom, when values are opposing? This is the discussion that our leaders of the free world need to open. A third alternative is required to help us move away from right and wrong as the only two.

I believe that every human who cares for others, believes that other humans should have that which allows them to thrive. In this, i don't believe we argue. The bias comes when value or belief systems cross paths and it becomes difficult to integrate. This typically happens when our values cause us to act upon society in the name of these values without consideration for all value sets. Again, i must state that neither of the systems are good or bad, just different. This is most egregious when one or the other imprints their values on the other, through regulation, law or self application.

Until we can discuss this intersection of the expectations of the human belief system, we will wander in the wilderness of discontent.

@Pascal Derrien Agree in principle. Who couldn't. The objective is inarguably admirable. I do though love the occasional loaf of sourdough with a sharp aged cheddar and a well hopped IPA.
