Speaking of government-sponsored trolls, has anybody else seen 'Homeland' this season?

What do you do if you have billions...Number One: hire a room full of sock puppets to push and push and push your opinion in online forums, day after day, week after week, 24/7, until it has the desirable effect on public opinion. This is happening all over, and it doubtless affects ATS as well. Who really runs this place? You gotta wonder.

What's not above board?

Many companies do this, is it only an issue because monsanto?




Just because someone else does something wrong, doesn't mean it is right. We should clean up this practice in the country, it takes around seven years to ban a chemical and only about a year of testing to get it approved. The testing procedures are determined by the company that is producing it, they determine what can be tested for by any second party testing firm too. I looked at the regulations that form these policies, there are some major problems with the regulations and parameters required for the research. In the past the regulating agencies actually tested these chemistries, but not really anymore, all that is needed is an insurance policy and research and testing of certain problems that are already known.

A company cannot be held liable for unknown side effects, only if there is evidence they knew of these side effects or if the side effects fall within a banned or known chemistry that is considered unsafe by the regulatory agency is used.

Our chemical oversight agencies are a joke here in America, but spill a gallon of gas on your property and they will call it a dangerous site and it will cost you many thousand dollars to dig it out.

The plot line of Season Six of Homeland involves two characters, played by actors Jake Weber and F. Murray Abraham, who conspire to sway public opinion against a female presidential electee, using a secretive, highly secure location employing a small army of sock puppets (that is, professional online writers who troll public forums and post en masse in order to influence public opinion).

It's not silly. It's commentary on how social media and broadcast media actually function in our world. We are all dupes to some extent.

Never seen the show. I thought it would show that 75% of people live an alternate life style.

Some people don't know what Zyklon B was used for during WW2 unfortunately and it does not hurt to jog peoples memories.

A couple of snippets :

During the First World War, Bayer turned its attention to the manufacture of chemical weapons including chlorine gas, which was used to horrendous effect in the trenches.

During this time Bayer formed a close relationship with other German chemical firms, including BASF and Hoechst. This relationship was formalised in 1925 when Bayer was one of the chemical companies that merged to form the massive German conglomerate Interessengemeinschaft Farben or IG Farben.

When it came to "selection", it was an IG Farben subsidiary, with IG Farben managers on its Management Committee, that manufactured and supplied Zyklon B to the SS. This poisonous cyanide-based pesticide, on which IG Farben held the patent, was used during the Holocaust to annihilate more than a million people at both the Auschwitz-Birkenau and Majdanek extermination camps.

More information here : www.gmwatch.org...

Extra information : Zyklon B is not used under that trade name anymore and was banned in 1974 when the name of the product was changed to Cyanosil, however, It is still used today as a fumigation product.

The active ingredient is Hydrogen Cyanide and is still used but banned in a fair number of countries.

It was still used in the USA until around 2010 as a method of executing inmates on death row in the gas chamber until the lethal injection bacame the norm.

More here : www.quora.com...

So Bayer have made a small fortune over the years on the backs of the deaths of millions of people.

I think Monsanto has been treated unfairly, they are making great contribution to sustainable agriculture, now if you'll excuse me I must cash this cheque I received from an anonymous source.

It is deceitful but I don't see it being ruled Illegal, sure if there is evidence of false claims then perhaps the could get in trouble, but Monsantos' business practices tarnish the reputation of other companies who use GMO's for good like drought resistant crops etc-they should be the ones upset because Monsantos' deceit could cost them as well.

Monsanto is great, it's a step forward for humanity. Ok guys where's my fifty bucks?
