No wonder that a company engaged in the “science of death” as Monsanto, which has been dedicated from the outset to produce toxic poisons spilling from Agent Orange to PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), pesticides, hormones and genetically modified seeds, is associated with another company of thugs.
Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of “philanthropy.” Another association that is not surprising.
It is a marriage between the two most brutal monopolies in the history of industrialism: Bill Gates controls more than 90 percent of the market share of proprietary computing and Monsanto about 90 percent of the global transgenic seed market and most global commercial seed. There does not exist in any other industrial sector monopolies so vast, whose very existence is a negation of the vaunted principle of “market competition” of capitalism. Both Gates and Monsanto are very aggressive in defending their ill-gotten monopolies.
* WOW what in the fucking hell… how does this fucking evil corporations get bigger and bigger??
WELL U CAN CHANGE BY BOYCOTTING MONSANTO. [Fuck GMO foods]
They have actually created the genetically modified seeds that “suicide” after the harvesting season. Forcing the powerless farmers to buy their seeds everytime.
NOBODY SHOULD ALTER AND TARNISH THE NATURE, LET ALONE ALLOWING THE CORPORATION THAT’S ONLY CHASING AFTER THE PROFITS BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY SOUNDS LIKE A FUCKING GIANT DISASTER TO ME.
