It’s difficult to think of a more pressing or timely criminal case than the one against Monsanto – since the inception of this blog I’ve accused Monsanto of crimes against humanity.
I’m not a ground breaker in this as it is an accusation that countless others have made on a global scale.
All things a step at a time, but I say governments and politiicans that have facilitated Monsanto’s ecocide and serial crimes against humanity need to be held to account as well.
Political cronyism, influence, and money will play a large part in this as the indictment plays out – all three are assests Monsanto has in great abundance at it’s disposal that may enable them to overcome such a legal challenge just as they have in other cases and other countries.
What they won’t be able to overcome is the attention it will generate that will raise global awareness, an awareness that could increase a related activism and force governments to step up.
In the midst of global conferences about climate change the clear and present danger Monsanto represents should be a part of any narrative and any solutions agreed upon.
Monsanto will trot out their bought and paid for “scientists” to present what they will claim to be studies validating the user friendly and environmentally safe products they produce but people shouldn’t be fooled when such an attempt is made and understand there is a history within the scientific community of some selling out just as there is elsewhere.
I’ve often wondered why groups like Anonymous haven’t prioritized entities like Monsanto as I doubt few would deny the damage and loss of lives related with Monsanto qualifies as a form of terrorism in it’s own right.
When it comes to complicity in Monsanto’s crimes against humanity I say those who own stock in the company or use their agri products are equally guilty.
Below is a link that enumerates the various companies Monsanto either
owns or has purchased stock in, it should be an eyeopener.
What will further startle the reader is that Monsanto is also purchasing stock in various “organic” companies.
I’ve never completey bought into the consumer based “organic foods” industry whether they be large or small, always suspecting there might well be more to the story and claims presented.
Regulations that define what can be labelled natural, “lite”, and healthy are enough to lead to a little skepticism.
I have no doubt there are natural/organic food companies with integrity that exist, but any for profit industry always in my opinion warrants a little scrutiny as a matter of common sense.
