I want nothing more than the failure of Monsanto. They are the most vile and despicable of the vile and despicable. There just isn't enough Makers Mark to calm me down about it.
...I have met too many farmers that view GM-foods to be God's answer to their prayers, but if you discuss the possibilities that Nature will adapt to whatever you throw at Her, they just look at you with blank eyes. They would rather trust a company with lots of money behind them, than a couple of university-professors,...
The Rockefeller Foundation
....The Nuremberg Tribunal dissolved IG Farben into Bayer, Hoechst and BASF... Auschwitz was the largest mass extermination factory in human history. However, few people are aware that Auschwitz was a 100% subsidiary of IG Farben.
In the early half of the 20th century, petrochemical giants organized a coup on the medical research facilities, hospitals and universities. The Rockefeller family sponsored research and donated sums to universities and medical schools which had drug based research. They further extended this policy to foreign universities and medical schools where research was drug based through their "International Education Board". Establishments and research which were were not drug based were refused funding and soon dissolved in favor of the lucrative pharmaceutical industry. In 1939 a "Drug Trust" alliance was formed by the Rockefeller empire and the German chemical company IG Farben (Bayer).... The Rockefeller empire, in tandem with Chase Manhattan Bank (now JP Morgan Chase), owns over half of the pharmaceutical interests in the United States. It is the largest drug manufacturing combine in the world. Since WWII, the pharmaceutical industry has steadily netted increasing profits to become the world's second largest manufacturing industry; ,  after the arms industry....

The "Green Revolution"
A new look at international intervention.....
India had been the bastion of the “free (enterprise) world.” However, western businessmen had long worried over its "neutralism”, “socialism” and economic restrictions on foreigners. That ended in 1958, when India experienced a foreign exchange crisis. The World Bank intervened.... [note the IMF and the World Bank hold a private meeting on David Rockefeller's Westercher estate each year cv]
International investors like RF and the Ford Foundation, immediately seized the opportunity. The Ford Foundation stepped in with a “food crisis” team, pushing agricultural spending at the expense of housing and social services.
Undersecretary of Commerce Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr., led a delegation of executives to New Delhi for the purpose of "persuading the government to adopt policies more attractive to potential investors".Rockefeller’s Jersey Standard wanted price and distribution restrictions lifted on their Bombay fertilizer plant. Petroleum producers lobbied to set up fertilizer plants to utilize naphtha, an otherwise useless petroleum by-product. The Ford and Rockefeller foundations also wanted to expand the use of their new high yield seeds, deliberately bred for large fertilizer and pesticide inputs....

this is not a good thing...!!
This is a terrible thing for two simple reasons..
1. Umbrella...errr I mean "Monsanto", will just make something even worse to combat the problem.
2. These beetles will now be even more dangerous to non-GM crops as well...!!
