More Monsanto, the dark side.



May 01, 2008 – Comments (2)

Recently there have been a few posts, positive about Monsanto and some negative that linked to few articles. Today this little movie stumbled into my in box. Prior to seeing this movie I felt that Monsanto executives should be charged and prosecuted for murder.

It is a very long movie, but then Monsanto is a very bad business.

Oh, is there someone who could call me a socialist or conspiracy theorist for posting this? I'd hate to miss out on the namecalling arguments.

No, your post has nothing to do with socialism.

Conspiracy Theory is something different, though. I need a more balanced article to make up my mind on that one...

If farmers don't like Monsanto's terms, they can go somewhere else for their seeds. Using Roundup to kill weeds in a corn field isn't a good idea to begin with, even if you have planted corn that is resistant. Maybe a return to the organic way of growing is an idea? There currently is a big market for organically grown products!

Thanks for getting the Conspiracy theorist thing out of the way for me, especially in such a pleasant manner. I am hoping that someone will watch the movie, and call me a socialist for putting harm to society ahead of monsantos right to profits. Unfortunately there is a lot of evidence showing that monsanto has falsified data in order to have their products approved and a long history of federal employees being fired for arguing against them. The movie does not even cover it all. I would like to see a trial. I would not be welcomed by monsanto to sit on the jury. The issue of farmers choosing monsanto products does not mean that they should have been approved for sale by the fed. gov't, which carrys an implicit seal of safety that does not seem to be warranted.
