On Food Security
Over the past couple of years, cases of the food scandal have been more frequently discussed on various media. In effect, the problem of food security has become a public concern across society.
There are several reasons which may account for this social phenomenon. First of all, there are a couple of economic driving forces behind this undesirable tide. The weak supervision and the lack of adequate punishment on those illegal producers is also a noticeable reason which enforces the trend. Furthermore, the neglect of moral education gives rise to the increasing rate of the problem. As Confucius instructed, it is better late than never.
In my opinion, prompt and strict measures should be taken to turn back this evil trend. On one hand, the government should draw up tougher laws to crack down on those irresponsible corporations and prohibit them from engaging in illegal production once again. On the other hand, the authorities should launch a massive moral campaign to educate all citizens. I am firmly convinced that through our combined efforts we are bound to enjoy more risk-free foods in the days ahead.
