And please remember, us peons can make a difference.


Can you really ? I hope you can, for all our sakes...but am not so sure.

They will just spend more money to circumvent anything you throw at them. Profit is sacred...lives are not.

And to add insult to injury...the state gets huge money from Monsanto...so they will look to endorse them...if possible.

Honestly? I don't know. Maybe because we have bad corporations with a penchant to make money and who have too much control over our government?

A lot of the poison comes out of China too. But you have a point...who started that little exercise?

They've done a lot of damage, and for some it may be too late. But that damage can be reversed, and people do have power if they think about it...in what they buy, in who they vote for. But it requires some deep thinking and seeing the connections and also the ability to repel the constant attacks on each other that are usually instigated by these evil corporations to keep us distracted.

Baby steps.

but there lies the problem. The system has made sure...we are too divided to stand together. Just look at ATS. You can not get all members to even agree that GMO's are not safe...and that Monsanto is the devil. And I'm not talking about people being misinformed. You have many "prominent" member-scientist here that defend the GMO use and the Monsanto as a company. And then use ATS as a statistical sample group and apply it to the whole population.


Sorry to be a pessimist here...but I doubt you will ever get to rally enough hands to make a difference. The majority of people that protest against Monsanto are the ones being affected by it at some point. Ones that aren't...don't care about it.

When companies form monopolies by buy out companies that distribute seeds then farmers have no choice.



Professor Philip H. Howard from the Department of Community, Agriculture, Recreation and Resource Studies at Michigan State University published a study in 2009 entitled Visualizing Consolidation in the Global Seed Industry: 1996 - 2008 that analyzes the trend in agriculture towards corporate dominance.

Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta, Bayer, Dow, and BASF collectively own or partially-own hundreds of formerly-independent seed companies -- and Monsanto, of course, dominates them all.

I read that yesterday. And there is absolutely no doubt in my mind they've killed off fish, birds, the bees, of course, though some will dispute that, and now the butterflies. And probably some others we are not yet aware of.

Ok. Your first task is to convince Phage. He has a jesus like following here and he apparently is a scientist.

Close the niche for Monsanto and it will go away...

Our methods of farming are archaic and ignore the scientific understanding we already have about natural systems. Sustainable farming that requires no herbicides, pesticides, outside fertilization, excessive fossil fuel dependence, gmo strains, etc is already being practiced. The discussion is not about how we need this self-destructive style of food-production or how Monsanto has us backed into a corner, the discussion should be about how we get as many people as possible participating in the local production of nutrient-dense, sustainable, climate-resilient food systems.

A revolution of the mind is necessary, because when you mention returning food production to your local community and closing the niche for abusive, unsustainable farming practices, people tend to think you're advocating a step-backwards into, tough, agrarian living. The truth is the modern methods of elegant food production, that are yet to be widely understood and implemented, require less human energy then what is commonly assumed but it does require more local support and initial energy input. Until we get beyond this ignorance, humans in their lethargy will continue to enable the ongoing woeful content that is at the heart of these kinds of threads.
