You see Weirman, removing Monsanto will do nothing. The company may cease to exist from one day to the other and it will do nothing to the system that allowed such a company to be created. Killing a dictator, even one such as Hitler, will not create freedom since the system that allowed the dictator to come to power is still in place. The system must be changed, and this requires that we stand by specific principles. Your accepting the use of force to prevent another from planting GMOs will only justify another person to add unwarranted wire taps to 'prevent' terrorism. Once you've established your principles, then stand by it even if you don't get your free cell phone, free healthcare, food stamps, subsidized housing, etc. (most would agree that stealing is bad but are okay with taking other people's money to pay for this "free" stuff = thus no principles).
You want to end GMOs, continue shopping at Organic or non-GMO stores. Convince your friends. As a farmer that plants GMOs, I will tell you that I have to issues planting non-GMOs, but you and everyone else that wishes to have these non-GMOs will have to pay more. Unfortunately there aren't enough people willing to pay the extra cost so I can't justify planting more non-GMO.
