"But are they going so far as requiring these farmers to forever buy seed from them and not someone else?"
Yes. That's exactly what they are doing. They are trying to take possession of the very seeds that HUMANITY has been developing for aeons. The thing here is you don't sound like you've done any research on the topic and thence you sound incredulous. If you checked up on NaturalNews and http://farmwars.info you'd be more informed.
There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
