Johnny Appleseed tried this one...the local fruit merchants tarred and feathered him and ran him out of town 'cos he messed up the economics of their businesses and it was easier to remove him than to create a new business model.
russell higgs: I can well believe it. But now it's the 21st century and new business models are the only options.
It's the 21st century and it's time to evolve.

Johnny Appleseed's beliefs made him care deeply about animals. His concern extended even to insects.

Henry Howe collected these stories in the 1830s, when Johnny Appleseed was still alive:

......One cool autumnal night, while lying by his camp-fire in the woods, Johnny Appleseed observed that the mosquitoes flew in the blaze and were burnt. Johnny, who wore on his head a tin utensil which answered both as a cap and a mush pot, filled it with water and quenched the fire, and afterwards remarked, “God forbid that I should build a fire for my comfort, that should be the means of destroying any of His creatures.”

Another time he made his camp-fire at the end of a hollow log in which he intended to pass the night, but finding it occupied by a bear and cubs, he removed his fire to the other end, and slept on the snow in the open air, rather than disturb the bear.....

bless him.

russell higgs: and "he wore no shoes, even in the snowy winter."
