So, The Daily Beast exists. And this is an article on the Daily Beast about Whole Foods. The author of the article is correct about biological science, but has his head up his ass about how politics intersects with class as regards science.
This person says that Whole Foods is as anti-science as the Creation Museum, and I don't disagree:
But you don’t have to schlep all the way to Kentucky in order to visit America’s greatest shrine to pseudoscience. In fact, that shrine is a 15-minute trip away from most American urbanites.
I’m talking, of course, about Whole Foods Market. From the probiotics aisle to the vaguely ridiculous Organic Integrity outreach effort (more on that later), Whole Foods has all the ingredients necessary to give Richard Dawkins nightmares. And if you want a sense of how weird, and how fraught, the relationship between science, politics, and commerce is in our modern world, then there’s really no better place to go. Because anti-science isn’t just a religious, conservative phenomenon—and the way in which it crosses cultural lines can tell us a lot about why places like the Creation Museum inspire so much rage, while places like Whole Foods don’t.
This is kind of weird.
First, what the fuck is up with the reference to Richard Dawkins? Here's his fucking web-site as regards pro-biotics. That's some sketchy horseshit right there. (I don't trust Dawkins for shit. Too libertarian.)
And Whole Foods isn't liberal. It's libertarian.
The liberal approach to Whole Foods is to say, many things you do are great. Let's help you. However, we live in a democracy, and the People have a right to independently determine whether or not you, and your products, are full of shit.
The liberal accepts science, and argues that a government that rejects scientific fact is just fucking stupid. The libertarian only gives a shit about making money.
Not sure why this is difficult.
