An essential of Thatcherism:
But more importantly, she instinctively knew that complicity with torture was an affront to everything that Britain stands for – above all, our respect for tolerance, decency and the rule of law.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. Psalm 139:13
I can tell you for a fact...that when I went to apply for daycare aid after getting a better paying job and being turned down (because I made $12.00 too much a month to qualify any longer). A case worked for CYFD...told me point blank 2 ways in which to cheat the system OR to have another child. So, yes...we will be responsible for them too.
am a little sad nobody commented on my description, or parts, of mary's nights.
"It is not the business of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequences of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve."
So, um, about the OP: The question is how to reverse course on this. I mean, these proteins are literally so widespread at this point that pretty much everything we eat is injected with them, and thanks to the government playing favorites with the rules, organic alternative are going to be prohibitively expensive for most the population for a while yet.
I think the key is making certain this doesn't happen again. Simple testing of the proteins would have most likely turned up these side effects, and while in most instance I think the FDA does overstep, this is one of those ones where they really do need to be proactive. Something being introduced to so much of our food supply obviously needs to be cleared first, not just blindly thrown in and see what happens.
My point, which you completely missed in my little anecdote, is that parents and children need to learn personal responsibility. The public school system has turned the masses into dependent, can't think for themselves, individuals who expect society to take care of them.Second of all, I think we all know there is a difference between missing an occasional lunch and not having lunch on a regular basis. So your anecdote, while cute, doesn't apply.
Darwin's Law has totally been skewed by society's need to coddle. No wonder "advanced civilizations" fail.
"I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There's a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts." Reagan
Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours.
