TIme to Shop at Whole Foods

by Jonathan H. Adler

For writing a very sensible op-ed on health-care reform, Whole Foods CEO John Mackey has been rewarded with an attempted boycott of his stores. Ann Althouse is not amused. Progressive folks who are offended at the idea of a private firm opposing expanded government intervention in the economy are certaily free to boycott Whole Foods — but they’re not entitled to be free from criticism for it. Others of us are also free to shop there more often — and I think I will (though I’ll still buy the conventional produce instead of the organic).
