If that's the case, then why should one prefer capitalistically produced non-GM food to capitalistically produced GM food. --------------------------- you will indeed. eventually, everyone will be eating capitalistic GM food simply because capitalism is the only game in town and the GM food is superior to non-GM food in calories, resistance to drought and disease, etc.

vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals are identical, so no lost nutrition.

there will be growing pains, reversals, etc., but as scientists learn more about the effects of GM food on the environment and vice-versa, these deleterious effects will be overcome. non-GM food will be a historical curiousity like blacksmiths, horses and the buggy, IMO.

if eventually socialism overcomes capitalism, it will simply incorporate GM food into its paradigm. no way will socialism turn back the technological clocks.
