Yes, I have run into people like that. They wouldn't eat carrots or beets from my garden because they were grown in dirt. My wife wouldn't eat the eggs from my hens because they were brown and came out of a chicken's butt, and hers were white and came from the store. But I love her anyway.
Oil companies are supposed to provide us with cheap gas, but these people are dead set against a pipeline or a refinery. Right now, the local utility is trying to site a power line, but the eco nuts don't want electrical lines spoiling their view of the mountains. But when the juice goes off, they scream bloody murder.
Corporations are evil money grubbers, but they are the providers of the goods and services we all need. Where does all of that stuff at Safeway, Target and Walmart come from? They just don't make the connections.
