I’ve seen a lot of posts telling us how bad Monsanto is and I tend to agree with them. Here’s one view of the history of Monsanto: The World According to Monsanto part 1 of 10. However, I wanted to take a look at Monsanto from a health point of view. Monsanto supports a foundation called “Food Health and Hope” – is that their goal?
It seems like Monsanto’s goal is world domination – and they are well on their way. As the saying goes, “Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely”. Monsanto has absolute power over most of our farmers. Monsanto plays a mean game of monopoly. At present, they own virtually all of the worthwhile properties (seeds). 1995-2005 Monsanto acquired over 50 seed companies. Farmers with their own seeds in the Americas are rapidly surrounded and isolated. Monsanto decides which seeds to sell – only GMO seeds. All of the farmers are issued ‘go to Jail’ cards as soon as they purchase a single crop. Not only that, the best pesticide for your Monsanto seeds is… you guessed it, a Monsanto pesticide. And a Monsanto weed killer. Monsanto doesn’t participate in the community chest, they collect all of the taxes (they call them profits, but when there are no competitors – profits are just another name for taxes). There are no more free parking cards. They might as well own the utilities, and run the government, and they’ve bought up all the ‘get out of jail free’ cards. If a farmer goes bankrupt – can go to “Food, Health and Hope” – more likely hope and hades. The food? It’s all Monsanto food. Food that insects won’t eat, with extra pesticides and herbicides added for good measure.
