We're going to connect the people wanting non-GMO food with food providers, and in the process, "Get GMOs into the public's vocabulary and out of our food!" And throughout we will do no harm. That is why there is so much about "positive food" on this site that goes beyond non-GMO. We don't support slave-trade chocolate even if it wasn't GMO, for example. Food has become the pure joy in our lives it should be, now that we've taken our "food life" apart and put it together again right- like so many of you have and are. This set of Principles is a working document that tells us how we deal with friends and people that aren't (yet) our friends. We absolutely have opinions about others based on what they do.
There is something missing here that is troublesome- and that is what do we do should we discover a practice takes place that is horrid but for which we're unprepared to address because it runs so deep? This happens when food is so industrialized that people only think of it as coming to them from the store. The sad answer is that for those things for which we are so astray, our movement has to leave them behind until we build this foundation. That does not mean closing our eyes. What we are doing now is going to take our unwavering effort. We have to work hard and get our task done quickly so we can come back for those things we couldn't clean up along our march. GMOs are the tragedy and horror to come. We can't slow ourselves down. That doesn't mean we are doing nothing to change things that seem too much to take on right now. What we do intentionally today will deliver us unforeseen blessings. In the process of getting GMOs out we will get more people to see that they really do care about where their food comes from. So much will be different then.
