@Noelle: I've been doing activism work for a long time, so I hear ya on not sounding like a douche. I respect people's right to their own opinion, just as I reserve the right to disagree with it. I can't force anyone to change their standpoint, just bring them information and express myself.
@Revolverman: Yeah, I'd love to do that. But the reality of the situation is that I can't. Like alot of people, so I have to use what little clout and all of the drive I have to be able to effect change. To sit idly by is just about as big a crime, in my opinion. (Sidenote: I do grow some of my own food. I share a communal organic garden with my sister and a friend of ours. Once we are in the full swing of harvest, I will pretty much be eating my own food entirely)
@Jude: Slighty off-topic, but .... nah, I won't touch this. I share the view that GMO is bad juju, and giving it to starving people is just plain and simple, fucked up. Not because those people deserve to be starving, that's definitely not where I'm going with it, but it's just that GMO is harmful in several ways that I won't get into right now. There have been countries that have refused to use, or have even burned the seeds that have been sent to them by Monsanto because they don't want to bring those problems down on their own heads.
