So imagine my surprise when the authour posted this artcile. It features a link to youtube video featuring the documentary 'David vs. Monsanto' which revolves around a Canadian farmer who is doing his best to fight back against the insidious influence of Monsanto and their attempts to enforce their ridiculous patent of GMO foods. For those unfamiliar a brief bit of background; Monsanto is a major player in the agribusiness of genetically modified organisms. As such they have put a patent on the particular content of their food and if that genetic pattern or seed shows up on another person's property Monsanto will sue you, sieze your product and milk you for every dollar you are worth.
|Sueing people for impractical reasons is their trademark|
Now I believe that Monsanto is probably one of the most evil corporations since the United Fruit Company and they have a number of unethical and immoral business practices which they like to use. As such I would encourage people to boycott their product and vote with your dollars by shopping at alternative food stores and buying from local vendors and deprive the mega-corps of their greens.
That however, is a topic for another time. I encourage people to watch this documentary and see just what it is all about and I want to raise awareness of what this company is doing and how it can effect all of us, even if you own just a small backyard garden plot.
So please watch and enjoy!
