In the big view Dennis Avery is simply very bad dark energy. Energy that
could be focused on the positive will instead be focused on rebuttal,
attack, or self-defense. People will discuss his wacko values instead of
building on their own with the ideas they heard from the other speakers more
in tune with the direction needed.
His message is satanic. I am not religious but I would not attend anything
that gives podium time to his viewpoints. In the physical sense, by
supplying him with podium time, one is contributing to the critical mass
supporting him. The effort should be focused on deflecting this mass away
from him, not inviting people to sit and listen to him.
There is simply no reason to give his thoughts and arguments the light of
day much less an audience.

Do you really like Dennis Avery or maybe mad at the farmers who slander big
ag but don't want
to be slandered. I have criticized this myself but if you're a small farmer
Dennis Avery is
not your bud no matter what the other little farmers say or do as he does
about who he's after.
If it was to SUPPORT the big ag companies then that would be one thing but
manipulates the truth, engages in hyperbole and is untruthful at times to
cause market harm
against small farmers and is paid by the big guys.
He is kinda like a political activist as he is molesting society in a
disproportionate way to
further an agenda. A large number of small farmers minding their own
business are molested by
him to benefit a few big guys who claim it's for the greatest possible
They have billions sunk in chemicals and GE and must defend their way of
doing business. He's
their junk yard dog!
You may be throwing out the baby with the bath water.
For what it's worth.
