Where did I say anything about attacking conventional products?
If you want to eat conventional produce, you should have the choice.
However, I should also have the choice to eat organic food. Some people
are into biodynamic food cropping systems. They should have market access
as well. That is the way the free market system use to work.
The attacks we are seeing now are aimed at not even allowing us the right
to choose! With continued vertical intergration in the food industry, your
right to reject, GE or pesticide containing foods will not exist unless you
grow your own. Who say Big Brother, be he an elected government or
corporate government, knows what is best for me?
What I am talking about is:
a. responding to pseudo-scientific attacks used in this nation-wide,
multimillion dollar PR attack against organic food and the Precautionary
b. rebuffing the cynical attempts to use the starving people in the world
as shills in the money game to control the world seed supply.
c. challenging the outright misrepresentation of CDC data to smear organic
foods and then when challanged by the CDC on the misrepresentation of their
data, to essentially say, "That YOUR interpertation."
This is not a fight between equals but it is a fight that can be won, if
you have the will to win!
Do you want to be able to choose the type of food you eat?
It is up to the organic community to call a spade a spade, expose the fraud
and the oligarchy behind these attacks. Mike Miller
