There are two sides of ethic questions in reference to the burning of GMO crops...On one hand, do they have the right to destroy someone else's
property. On the other, do they have the moral obligation to prevent the spread/sale of something that has not been thoroughly tested by independent,
publicly-funded bodies on the impacts on health, environment and society especially when the authorities have failed/refused to do so? This has to be
left to individuals to decide.
While we can certainly not know for certain yet how GMO will affect human health, the fact that Obama has recently signed a bill that practically
prevented the big corporations from future lawsuits or from stopping the production/sale of GM food if it should one day be found to have negative
health consequences was indeed disconcerting. How could such a law be passed when it clearly was prejudiced?
We need to be alarmed...very alarmed by the ability of giant corporations to control seeds, which are an essence of life. As it is, there are already
signs that they are able to control farmers (and politicians). Given more power, one day they will be able to control the political stability of a
nation as well, if not already.
"One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them" would quite an appropriate metaphor.
