What Do People On DP Think of the Monsanto Protection Act That The Senate Passed?

Just curious, There was an article on the "dreaded" AJ page about how the senate passed an act that basically gives Monsanto the power to not only NOT be contested by US courts, but also gives them power over the government as a whole. I guess this makes them above the law.(no big surprise because someone here on DP says that the government owns 51% of Monsanto anyway so there really isn't any law to abide by to begin with I assume) Anyhow, I am just curious how DP'ers feel about this. Any comments?

Monsanto is NOT the problem

Most people hate monsanto for what they have done, but most fail to realize that monsanto isnt the problem it is just a symptom. There is no point in trying to stop monsanto they didnt create the enviornment that allows the abuse of government power by individuals or companies. Monsanto is just a result of a large and powerful government that no longer respects or individual rights. For as good as the constitution was it has failed to prevent the government that we have today and it has failed to protect our rights. There is some hope that a future gov will return us to the constitution, but until then companies like monsanto will enjoy the benefits that a totalitarian gov provides. So dedicate your time to changing the gov,the desease and not the symptom, business that is in bed with the government. You may be able to stop monsanto but the enviornment will only allow for other abuse by other companies.

That TPTB are trying to weed people out

They want that 500,000,000 number and they're going to do it any way they can - poison our food with GMOs, poison our health with vaccines, poison our bodies with Smart technology that uses microwave radiation, poison our water with flouride and other chemicals and poisons our air with everything they can get their hands on.
This is violence of extreme proportions yet the pacifists on board would let these evil beings live life large in jail - if they could ever get them before an honest court. Fat chance of that ever happening.

This is troubling indeed. Thanks for pointing it out. People need to grow their own or more community gardens if they are not for store bought products. The seed question is more difficult obviously. I think people could also seek out Amish and associated peoples to get seeds to there liking.

I do not think many politicians would want to get involved imo. Perhaps those hollywood types might want to pick up the standard here?


This is a company

toward which we should not adopt a live and let live approach.
