GMO truth in comedic form.
By my clock it’s five minutes past midnight. We are into unchartered territory. Territory where only bravery and vision can hope to cut through the torpor and stupor which is bringing about the designed obsolescence of the human race and the transgenic re-engineering of the common gene pool of our planetary biodiversity.
Pat Mooney, co-founder & Executive Director of etcgroup.org (formerly RAFI) discusses terminator & traitor seeds patented by the USDA & Monsanto, possible implications for bio-warfare and agra-terrorism.
It seems that “organic” does not mean “safe from tampering.” What sorts of “business interruptions” justify using non-organically produced annual seeds? I’m willing to bet that the dramatic effects on crops due to drought from climate change easily warrant such activity, under this clause; however, I just as easily would bet that it could mean anything in a court of law, from a lack of staff or machinery issues to financial losses in a particular quarter. As vague as it is, a “business interruption,” could be any problem a corporation faces in making duplicated or better profits from year to year. This is apparently a fully exploitable loophole. Let’s look at it all in a bit more detail…
Imagine this. A killer is put on trial, and the jury, in a surprise verdict, finds him not guilty. Afterwards, reporters interview this killer. He says, “The jury freed me. It’s up to them. They decide. That’s what justice is all about.” Then the press moves along to members of the jury, who say: Well, we had to take the defendant’s word. He said he was innocent, so that’s what we ruled. That’s an exact description of the FDA and Monsanto partnership.
