Many in the organic industry have gotten a lot of mileage
from smearing the conventional boys and when they get the
same thing back many cry out it's unfair. This seems kind of
hypocritical or at least egocentric.
There's an old saying about what's good for the goose is
good for the gander.
If you want to play criticism and smear against the big boys
then who's writing the rules and drawing first blood?
If the organic marketing is so weak it can't stand on it's
own feet then maybe it should look to building it's house on
a good foundation rather than acting like a mosquito and
getting sustenance out of big ag's blood.
How about easily obtainable factual scientific information
that ANYBODY can refer to showing organic is good? What's
wrong with what's right about organic rather than trying to
sell based on what's wrong with conventional?
If one has to lower big ag to make a product look good then
maybe the product isn't as high as one thinks it is or maybe
one's salesmanship skills need improvement.
