Monsanto is a friendly corporation that is quickly gaining monopoly over the world's food supply through its special genetically enhanced seeds. Monsanto also happens to be the same people who have brought us Agent Orange. What are your thoughts on this?

Some Monsanto info

Here is also a French documentary on the multi-national corporation:

YEAH! Monsanto is like the epitome of evil corporation, up there with Amway and Halliburton. If you eat things that are grown from the ground, such as vegetables, or if you eat things like beef, there is more than an 80% chance that you are eating Monsanto's products, most of which are genetically modified. Bovine Growth Hormone comes from Monsanto too.

There also seems to be a close relation between Monsanto and the NWO agencies such as the UN, but also the FDA, and they seem to be aiding and encouraging Monsanto's growing monopoly while covering up their faults (such as false advertisement i.e. a claim that their pesticide Roundup was biodegradable and safe when their own tests showed otherwise).

More info needs to be dug up on Monsanto. The video I attached in the original post exposes Monsanto's faults and the fact that certain organizations (most of them are NWO globalist organizations) actively help Monsanto in achieving their monopoly, but does not make the NWO connection. I think this may have something to do with Codex Alimentarius, or some sort of scheme to control ALL FOOD.

Over the past few years, Monsanto, a chemical firm, has positioned
itself as an agricultural company through control over seed - the
first link in the food chain. Monsanto now wants to control water, the
very basis of life.

In 1996, Monsanto bought the biotechnology assets of Agracetus, a
subsidiary of W. R. Grace, for $150 million and Calgene, a
California-based plant biotechnology company for $340 million. In
1997, Monsanto acquired Holden seeds, the Brazilian seed company,
Sementes Agrocerus and Asgrow. In 1998, it purchased Cargill's seed
operations for $1.4 billion and bought Delta and Pine land for $1.82
billion and Dekalb for $2.3 billion.

In India, Monsanto has bought MAHYCO, Maharashtra Hybrid Company, EID
Parry and Rallis. Mr. Jack Kennedy of Monsanto has said, "we propose
to penetrate the Indian agricultural sector in a big way. MAHYCO is a
good vehicle." According to Mr. Robert Farley of Monsanto, "what you
are seeing is not just a consolidation of seed companies, it's really
a consolidation of the entire food chain. Since water is as central to
food production as seed is, and without water life is not possible,
Monsanto is now trying to establish its control over water. During
1999, Monsanto plans to launch a new water business, starting with
India and Mexico since both these countries are facing water
shortages."


Monsanto already controls seeds, and now Monsanto is trying to control the water supply??


Monsanto plans to earn revenues of $420 million and a net income of
$63 million by 2008 from its water business in India and Mexico. By
2010, about 2.5 billion people in the world are projected to lack
access to safe drinking water. At least 30 per cent of the population
in China, India, Mexico and the U.S. is expected to face severe water
stress. By 2025, the supply of water in India will be 700 cubic km per
year, while the demand is expected to rise to 1,050 units. Control
over this scarce and vital resource will, of course, be a source of
guaranteed profits. As John Bastin of the European Bank of
Reconstruction and Development has said, "Water is the last
infrastructure frontier for private investors."


With support from the WORLD BANK??


At the same
time, attempts are being made by the World Bank to privatise water
resources and establish trade in water rights. These trends will suit
Monsanto well in establishing its water and aquaculture businesses.
The Bank has already offered to help. As the Monsanto strategy paper
states: "We are particularly enthusiastic about the potential of
partnering with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the
World Bank to joint venture projects in developing markets. The IFC is
eager to work with Monsanto to commercialise sustainability
opportunities and would bring both investment capital and
on-the-ground capabilities to our efforts."

NWO anyone? Control over food and water supplies!

Thanks for the link. I had been looking for that movie for a year or so now and hadn't been able to find it, except for one download link that gave it to me in the wrong format. It didn't work.

Monsanto is the epitome of evil in this world, IMO. I just get sick seeing things like this. As for them controlling water, why not? They have their grubby hands in everything else food related, might as well screw that up also and screw us for billions of dollars in the process.

People don't understand why I have such a dislike for corporations, it's crap like this. They have more rights than we as citizens do. Just ask those farmers in The Future of Food. How in the world the Canadian gov said that it's the farmers fault that Monsanto's plants were growing on their property boggles my mind. How in the hell could they keep it out? If they didn't put it there and didn't want it there, how is it their fault?

Grr. Arrgh.

FRIENDLY?????? Monsanto is certainly NOT a friendly corporation.

With Monsanto however, consumers have ultimate power. Simply don't buy anything they own, produce or patent - and encourage others to do the same.

Nobody here has any moral authority to slag off at Monsanto if they are buying or using ANY of their many products or 'foods' etc.

Monsanto are about as evil a corporation as you can possibly get imho.

Easier said than done. How does one not buy anything related to Monsanto when they have their hands into everything? If nothing is labeled then how do we know where it comes from? Since the labeling of GMO is nonexistent then how would someone know if what they are buying is GMO? I would bet Monsanto isn't the only corporation playing God with biotech so can we trust any one?

Heck, we have these new "neighborhood grocery" type places, Fresh & Easy or something like that. I went in there once and I have no idea where the food products they sell are made, who makes them and what is in them GMO-wise. I may have to do a little research into the company and find out who owns them at the least.

i am 150% against any corporation that has, wants to, or will, patent life forms.

i am 150% against any corporation that wants be be able to patent any part of the human food supply.

i am 150% against any corporation that works on GM of life forms.

i am 150% against monsanto.

Here are a few related threads that might be of interest...


Codex Alimentarius (Mandate That Will Starve 3 Billion People to be In Place by 12/31/09)


In this thread I show how American obesity is actually just a cover for the fact that we are being slowly starved to death...

"Let them eat cake!"

And this is where it all leads...

Poverty does indeed have a cure

Enjoy.

I wonder now and then why anti-Monsanto activists don't register as a corporation with as many directors (members) as they like. They could issue "statements" of non-liability for example in cases where pollen from genetically modified crops has been blown by the wind in to a non GM crop and fertilized it and Monsanto then sue the non GM farmer for theft of intellectual property.

Before the law, they would have the same rights to declare non-liability as Monsanto to declare liability regardless of agency of pollination.

that's an interesting thought.


How about this, why doesn't the farmer suit monsanto for contaminating his lifelong heritage crop?

Because that is exactly what happened!

Monsanto was negligent for selling seed that could easily be blown onto a non monsanto field and corrupt the crop!

the seed should have only been sold in sealed containers and with restricted planting procedures that would insure

no contamination of neighboring fields would occur!

Yes I have read about Codex Alimentarius and I do believe that Monsanto and the NWO plan for population reduction may have strong connections. The FDA, USDA, World Bank, IFC, along with other NWO organizations have actively been supporting Monsanto's growing monopoly while at the same time covering up Monsanto's dirt. In fact, few have even heard of Monsanto.

A monopoly over water is next...

We need to watch this topic closely.

good one toasted it's a s*%tfight alright

Monsanto profits were and continue to be built around the idea of not being liable for the safety of their products. For example with the h.e.r.b.i.cide r ou n. D U. P (glyphosate) they have issued statements to the effect that they believe it to be safe. They are not, however - under corporate law - required to GUARANTEE that it's safe. Obviously, big difference, and one which they actually pride themselves on using to its fullest advantage.


Monsanto are corporations law athletes. This is why I think non-GM farmers especially should join together to form a multinational corporation of their own, having the same rights to issue statements of their "belief" that they have taken appropriate measures to prevent their crops from becoming contaminated by GM canola pollen, but that if such contamination should occur, then they as a corporation are not responsible.
