Dear Anlie & Hayas,
Indeed, If Democracy has to live, then (mandatory) "protectionism" must make way for the Spirit of the US Constitution & Bill of Rights. But dear folks I think, that the author of the article you are referring to, may have sounded a bit pushy for your liking, and just perhaps what he was suggesting, came through to your sensibilities as you suggested, but I do believe, that he was sharing his own experiences, from the standpoint of an experienced "Elder".
We may perhaps serve ourselves better, if positive appreciation for his caring to contribute is made known by us.
We do not need to re-state the guiding light in 1776, that shone so bright for folks like Thomas Payne and the other Founding Fathers to have helped them in defining the most stable treatise on human rights, as is enshrined in the US Constitution.
Let's all get back to our business at hand and share our experiences, so we all may stay on track as "Fruit Explorers", who wish to try new and challenging methods for their orchards.
I hope to be sending a few snaps of the Persimmon that has flourished in our Mountains of the North.
By the way, I never saw any feedback on my suggestion regarding the Organic prevention of Fungus in fruit orchards by using waste cinnamon as a spray (from the infusion) as well as by placement near the root zone of the trees (Systemic route).

I prefer to make my OWN choices, thank you very much. The last thing
in the world I want is someone else, much less a petty government
bureaucrat or idealogue, making my moral and economic choices for me,
or limiting my choices. I can't think of a single person on this
planet to whom I would delegate the authority to make moral and
economic decisions on my behalf. When I was a little boy my mother
and father guided me in making my decisions. Now, as an adult, I do
it myself and live with the consequences.
I too have many ideas and standards which I think everyone else
should follow. The world would be wonderful if everyone did what I
said. I'm not about to suggest that other people be forced to follow
