And if you add in the "Food Slander" laws, then you've effectively shielded
producers from any responsibility! What a wonderful world. If you're worried
about your food supply poisoning you, just pay more, but don't you dare
criticize those poor, risk-taking producers.

Wouldn't it be more efficient if the wealthy just moved to the old school
system of sending out thugs to collect 'protection' money. After all, it
works in Russia.
