Agricultural libertarianism is the term applied to the political and social idealogy that some farmers and rural politicians subscribe to, wherein both parties attempt to preserve as much of the local agricultural industry as possible. This is considered to be a form of tribalism by some intellectuals.
Agricultural libertarianism can apply to any crop from potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, corn, strawberries, broccoli, ginseng, and even tobacco. Tobacco belt regions attempt to keep their tobacco industry alive and this protectionist move is futile in a millenium where people are trying to ban tobacco cigarettes in order to extend the life expectancy of the human being. So if a local farmer grows a crop, and the supermarket finds it cheaper to import that same crop from another country or province, then the farmer gets offended and sells his crop at a market instead where local crops are typically sold. Often times, a farmer has to use his "boys" to deliver his crops to a big city market in Toronto or New York City in order to cash in on the urban market (who don't care where their fruits and vegetables come from, unlike country folk - who tend to buy stuff from people who live near them but tend to avoid the farmer who lives across the county from them).
Around the year 2054, it will be realized that while gricultural libertarianism is good for increasing the local economy, the politicians will eventually realize that it is more important to raise the global economy and increase the amount of tourists and affluent immigrants than it is to hog all the income from agriculture to themselves.
