Do you recommend the people in that link?
And secondly, are there any downsides to harvesting the seeds from produce grown from heirloom seeds?

Out of curiosity, I heard garlic was a bugger to re-plant harvested bulbs from, because it's inherently a diseased veg and ruins the soil for the next generation of garlic. Any truth to that? Or is it related to the monsanto thingy?
Former White House agriculture expert Dr. Charles Benbrook calculates that the lost export trade and fall in farm prices caused by GM commercialization led to an increase in annual government subsidies of an estimated $3-5 billion.
Crop failures have already occurred with GM soya and cotton plants in the developing world. This is largely due to the unpredictable behavior of these crops. GM soya's brittleness, for example, has made it incapable of surviving heat waves. And in 2002 `massive failure' of Bt cotton was reported in the southern states of India; consequently, in April the Indian government denied Monsanto clearance for the cultivation of its Bt cotton in India's northern states.

I heard about some group in Canada started a barter system where money is out of play, and their successfully implementing it. This system was introduced a way back here in US before an audience. The system was originated in Switzerland and they started to spread it due to currency monopoly of the so-called Controlling Power working at the background of political and economic arena.
I hope some of the ATS members can do some research.

"Every molecular or atomic structure is present in this universe and it's free-flowing around us. And yet some power in the past harnessed it and made a kingdom over it."
"For every purpose there is a source, but without a meaning there is no purpose."
"When he was the principal scientific officer of the Rowett Institute in Aberdeen, Scotland, Hungarian citizen Arpad Pusztai fed transgenically modified [GMO] potatoes to rodents in one of the few experiments that have ever tested the safety of genetically modified food in animals or humans. Almost immediately, the rats displayed tissue and immunological damage.
After he reported his findings, which eventually underwent peer review and were published in the United Kingdom's leading medical journal, Lancet, Pusztai's home was burglarized and his research files taken.
Soon thereafter, he was fired from his job at Rowett, and he has since suffered an orchestrated international campaign of discreditation, in which Prime Minister Tony Blair played an active role.
While Pusztai was fighting for his professional life, Cornell Professor John Losey was patiently dusting milkweed leaves with genetically modified [GMO] corn pollen. When monarch butterfly larvae that ate the leaves died in significant numbers (while a control group fed non-genetically modified pollen all survived), Losey was not particularly surprised."
