Is this a good idea? "Yes, but..."

I stumbled upon this on FaceBook...  the concept behind this idea is good but...
but see my response below the picture... 
Geneva, Switzerland. Each yard is a vegetable garden and neighbors consult and plan what each will grow so they can trade. Imagine if we did this in the US?
Ref:"Imagine if we did this in the US?": It would be illegal! The government would step in...see →: Wickard v. Filburn, 317 U.S. 111 (1942), was a United States Supreme Court decision that recognized the power of the federal government to regulate economic activity.
A farmer, Roscoe Filburn, was growing wheat for on-farm consumption in Ohio. The U.S. government had established limits on wheat production based on acreage owned by a farmer, in order to drive up wheat prices during the Great Depression, and Filburn was growing more than the limits permitted. Filburn was ordered to destroy his crops and pay a fine, even though he was producing the excess wheat for his own use and had no intention of selling it.
Wickard v. Filburn was definetly a bad decision... It was decided based solely on the government's ever increasing effort to control the individual regardless of the legal arguments/excuses.  There are elements in our society that want to destroy everything this country was founded upon in favor of some utopian New World Order... "We the people" do not fit in with their plans...and they do have a plan (Don't you forget it!) ~ Norman E. Hooben 
Just in case you need to be reminded... 
If you cannot recognize any of the above should not be eligible to vote!  Period!
