the anarchist chocolatier

Honest-to-goodness Anarchist Mott Green (born David Friedman) helped create a new local industry while inspiring his adopted nation to take a new pride in their workmanship and value.  The Ivy League dropout, longtime sailor and environmental activist was electrocuted last week, ironically, while repairing solar-powered refrigeration machinery; his death comes just weeks after the first 50,000 bars of the product he was most proud of – zero-carbon farm-to-shop chocolate – was delivered from Grenada to the Netherlands by schooner and bicycle.

Thanks to Friedman’s pal, SA’er “Plumbean” for the heads up; he had a few words to say about the man:

My friend David Friedman, who was known to many as Mott Green, died last week in Grenada.  Because he was both an anarchist and a sailor, I thought I would post about it here.

David was perhaps the most intense (and impulsive) person I ever had the privilege of spending time with, and he achieved remarkable things in his time here.  He was the founder of The Grenada Chocolate Company and has been the subject of a couple of videos/films:

First, a documentary by Kum-Kum Bhavnani called “Nothing Like Chocolate” and narrated by Susan Sarandon.

And a well-done piece by Jimmy Buffet’s daughter, found on youtube here.

If you watch them, you will be inspired.  And if you see his chocolate on display (among other places, it is sold in Whole Foods in Manhattan), please buy some.  The world could use a lot more people like him.
