    Is the production model of small-farmer co-ops a viable model supporting enough food production for a growing global population or is it part of a sustainable economic model that encourages limiting population growth ?

    You have to look at every possible reason of WHY, would they be like that. You can never make an accusation that is baseless. You always need substance. Substance can make FACTS, but without no substance or reason of accusation you are only boasting an opinion. Opinion, is not worth a thing. Opnions have no stature. Opinion has just feeling behind it. Opinion is not a fact and you need a fact in order to appoint accusations.

    Fair trade only allows a tax-free production. Only food is fair trade because... To... uhhh? Feel better about selling part of the land?
    Either way the land the produce comes from is still taxed -- Perhaps they only allow no tax, for the plant comes from the already-taxed land ?

    Why Fair trade is not "Pro-choice" :
    Safety. Food needs a type of regulation to it, without regulations food can carry disease, and people could get sick. Government, the FDA, prohibits any genetically altered plants and other type of use in poisons on plants. Just to ensure people do not get harmed by the food.

    Sorta funny, in the 90s we were eating genetically altered stuff, but then now its all illegal to consume altered foods? Gene-altered produce can now only be used in, non-consumed products.

    Humanity is funny, we acclaim to now how to do things, but we never really sure of everything to it(like genetics)... Then we turn around and never try to fully understand it and just go to trying to do something else with it, as like to clone sheep.
