As though there were some lack of demand for their product (food), Monsanto still feels the need to entrench their power by paying for bespoke legislation, international promotion, protection and bullying at taxpayer expense.
Is Monsanto doing that badly? Do they really need to bully private citizen gardeners in Europe from planting squash with their own seeds? Is all this even a faint ghost of actual necessity? Is Monsanto seriously threatened by a 10x10 plot of tomatoes?
You really need look under a lot of rocks to find these "special" people who will willingly devote their lives to the calcification of corporate power structures. Its all just gratuitous, grasping, and disgusting.
