So what is legal and what is right today? Monsanto and a few other large gene tech companies have achieved the legal status of monopoly. And the reign of terror that they blast upon the people of this country is afterall, legal. The destruction of our environment is, legal. The introduction of Genetically Modified food that nearly twenty years after its introduction is now being found to cause degenerative illnesses, sterility, and long term complications is legal.
But is it Right?
This report is long, boring, and scary as all hell. (Report) It is from the Center for Food Safety, and it is entitled "Food Giants vs. Farmers" It details many of the lawsuits, tactics, coverups, illegal activities, and generally immoral activities of Monsanto. It is worth the read.
This is also worth the time. A movie that is a couple years old, but ever so true, and scary as well.
And this Washington Post article is a 75 year old Indiana farmer that is taking his case against Monsanto all the way to the Supreme Court. (Washington Post)
