So yet again you refuse to explain plainly just how you refuse to accept that activism helped raise awareness on ecological and environment issues. You speak in riddles without giving any actual detail at all.
Be blunt and open and give detail to support your viewpoint - I'd be able to respect that, all you are offering at present are vague allusions and deflections.
I wasn't around in the 70s,
.... and I haven't listened to damn thing from the mouth of an activist,...
He has an insistence that he knows better without even reading / listening to their viewpoint.

I don't really have an opinion on GM foods.
There seems to be evidence that supports both sides of the argument, so for me the jury is out at this moment.
I'm no pompous know-it-all, far from it. But at least I'm providing some sort of reasoning behind my opinion that activists can and do at times provide the momentum for change. On the other hand you have provided nothing at all to support your viewpoint and have indeed openly admitted that you don't even listen to activists reasoning or opinions before making up your mind.
I'm out of this thread for the simple reason that you can't even begin to consider any opposing viewpoint regardless of the veracity or reasoning.

According to the royal family's official website, "There are no obligatory codes of behaviour when meeting The Queen or a member of the Royal Family, but many people wish to observe the traditional forms." They may be optional for peasants like us, but these traditional forms — namely, bows and curtsies — are obligatory for members of the royal family.
When Kate Middleton married Prince William, the queen updated the Order of Precedence and dictated that Middleton should curtsy to "blood princesses" — Princesses Anne, Alexandra, Beatrice, and Eugenie, according to The Telegraph. Because they were born into the royal family and Middleton married into it, they outrank her.
I genuinely believe the UK government didn't want Monsanto growing GM crops here but for reasons of business legislation or whatever they couldn't say no in public.

and being a general annoyance until the government makes something illegal is something to be proud of
So the Govt bent to the will of stomping feet in total denial of the scientific studies and benefits of GM.
