Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

I'm Considering a Boycott

I'm considering a boycott of Lightlife and Smart Balance for bowing to modern superstitions about GMOs. There are other candidates that I'm looking at.

It's possible to make a case that GMOs “aren't necessary.” If a business rejects GMOs on that ground, it's as though they had a mouse infestation problem and controlled it by acquiring brown cats, yellow cats, and gray cats. (Black cats aren't necessary.) Black cats might not be necessary to control mice, but if they're excluded, one might wonder what other superstitions are being taken seriously.

Besides, such a rejection implies they're selling to idiots.

As your name isn't -insert major celebrity name here- and you don't command legions of loyal fans... no one's gonna care.

Sigh. Once again the Vader Principle raises its ugly head:

Every time I run across something annoying enough to make me want to boycott it, I find out I'm already not patronizing it.

Everyone is selling to idiots. It's lucrative.
