Maybe you hate all GMOs. I’ll bet you don’t know much about them. Mind you, I’m not arbitrarily in favor of them. But some of them make good sense. Like altering a seed so that the plant uses or requires less water. Like making a plant resistant to bugs or diseases. It’s a lot better than DDT. The trouble with GMOs is that we have no way to judge what is good and what is bad. Also, that the GMO producers are not required to tell us anything, not even to label things to say that they contain GMOs. Without any information, we are quite right to reject them.
There are no laws requiring producers of things like GMOs, or fracking fluids, or air or water pollutants, to tell us what we need to know because these activities are undertaken to make MONEY. Notice that I capitalize MONEY, in the same way that writings about God include capitalization of pronouns like He or His. It is a recognition that MONEY occupies a sacred place in our culture. We, the people that the GMOs, fracking fluids, or pollutants are supposedly serving are anything but sacred, even though we are told we have sacred souls. It’s just that those with MONEY have more sacred souls. But, back to GMOs.
As I see it, the major problem with GMOs, as well as many other commercial endeavors, is the absolute refusal of the business interests to be open to the ideas, needs, desires, and rights of people in general. Monsanto is a wonderful obnoxious example. They do not care if people want their products or not. They only care that some commercial agricultural businesses will buy their products, and that some who DO NOT want their products must pay for them anyway, while inadvertently degrading their crops with GMOs. They go so far in their aggressiveness as to claim that farmers near GMO fields should pay Monsanto for using their GMO products when the wind blows pollen or seed into the formerly GMO-less fields. When the wind does this, of course, those farmers can no longer claim they do not use GMOs. This immediately reduces the value of their crops. So Monsanto adds more injury by suing them. Another victory for MONEY. See article at https://thegranddisillusion.wordpress.com/monsanto-vs-farmer/ . In this Canadian case, Monsanto actually ended up owning the crop of the offended party. Here’s another article from Australia: http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/02/13/monsantos-gmo-seeds-may-no-longer-be-invincible.aspx .
So, you decide, GMOs may be good sometimes, even when you are forced to use or consume them. Bon Appetit.
