Not Brain Dead

Mr. Nedelman seems to suggest that consumers stop being able to think if given "too many warnings". Perhaps he wants to help clear our heads by getting rid of tornado horns, safe handling instructions on chemicals, and doctor's advice on prescription drug side effects, to name just a few of the warnings that clutter the brains of millions of average citizens? Is he suggesting that Big Brother decide for us (and him) what we (and he) should be concerned about, and what not?
Interesting that when Monsanto employs a phalanx of well-heeled lawyers to sue small farmers whose crops receive unwanted GE pollen from drift, it's not a legal or economic problem. But let a citizen sue Monsanto for trying to hide questionable substances (ie, foreign genes and their byproducts) in our food, and that becomes "full employment for bounty hunters." Interesting dichotomy.
