The State cherry picking what’s essential echoes the sort of central planning that’s seen to risk starvation
In his study on famines, Nobel laureate Amartya Sen described two distinct kinds of famine. The first, what he called FAD (food availability decline), was till then the usual conception of a famine: starvation caused by disruptions arising from war, repeated rainfall failure, or pestilence, such as disease, locust infestations, etc. Humans need a certain minimum caloric intake to survive. If food supply dipped below this point, starvation would ensue.
