Big Agriculture Propaganda

Big Agriculture is blaming “Mommy bloggers” for the leaks about the dangers of GM’s, Genetically Modified foods. They really, really do not want the consumer to know which ones have been genetically modified.

Biotech’s Mommy Issue | National Review Online:

Every software engineer knows that perfection for every application they develop is an unattainable goal, no matter the vanity streak in some few of them.

If people were not so gullible when it comes to trusting government for food safety, it might not be a problem. But if you offer me tomatoes and it’s not the tomato that I have known but it’s something else, and you sell it to me knowing that I want to buy a “real tomato” and not a genetically engineered one, then you’re committing fraud.

Some organic producers are labeling their products as NOT G-M, and that’s good. But most housewives are not going to know what’s what, except they would generally avoid GM.

IN FACT THE REAL REASON THEY WANT TO AVOID THE LABELING is because they want to protect their patent industry.

MONSANTO MAKES PUBLIC DEMANDS based on what is GM, in fact. They have sued small farmers for using seed that blew into their farms. If it were not for being able to build government-enforced (by the gun of the law) captive markets, they would not care at all about labels and all that.

Or they might, but then blaming the Mommies that blog for blowing the whistle on them? The article says there are 1,700 studies that say GM is harmless, but then they also don’t mention the lawsuits that blame GM, for example, for the “mysterious” honey bee disappearance. They’re getting sued themselves for that.

The article also blames “radical environmentalists” to help confuse the issues, and points to the “bad news about the costs of needless regulation”.

But the fact of the matter is, Big Agriculture lobbyists have rivers of influence over those regulations, and they are pointing to them to deflect attention from their abuse of the patent protections they demand and the real reasons they want to hide the GM labels from the consumer while declaring GM identification for “law enforcement” in the courts to protect their captive (by patent law) monopolies over mere permutations in the DNA alphabet.

REV 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
