I’d like to take this post time to admit to being guilty of something.
You see in all my rantings about the Eco Foodie Nazis I failed to consider the vast number of people who are really just trying to do the right thing.
I let the interaction with a single obnoxious extremist Eco Nazi foodie who was 100% wrong and refused to listen to any other viewpoint paint an entire group of people with the same brush.
There are many people just trying to make informed decisions and they should be applauded.
This is not to say that I agree at all with The Monterey Aquarium who puts out false information about codfish stocks being on the verge of collapse. They still suck.
I still believe there are Eco groups that are willing to take money from big companies once their group has any type of national voice and are used by these big companies to alter the public attitude toward certain groups be it small farmers or fishermen which decimate these small independent industries or communities so that big business can further their agendas. And I don’t think these big companies really care about the resource in many instances, I believe they care about their own agendas at the expense of the independent fisherman or farmer. It’s ingenious really. Because they use naive greenies who are willing and eager to believe anything that the master cult like organization wants to shovel down their throat while the master cult like organization like PEW or Monterey Aquarium directors are pocketing huge sums of money from these corporations like big oil to push their agendas the willing.
I believe there are people who do care passionately about where they source their food and they should be commended. I just wish they weren’t misled by the Eco groups that are taking money to do the dirty work for big corporations under the guise of the environment.
Two of my least favorite types of people are extreme democrats and extreme republicans who can’t see any good in any policy except the one that their party tells them is right. There are good ideas on both sides of the aisle and finding the balance is the key.
Thank you Beth for reminding me that there are people just trying to do the right thing with your reasoned response.
