“control of the food supply is a major goal of the left.”
Yes, this is true, and this is why they target Monsanto. They don’t want to just control the food supply, they want to reduce it, in order to achieve population control. Monsanto crops produce too much food for hungry mouths, so they must be eliminated.
The methodology here is to get Monsanto “playing ball” with the gov’t/left by giving them special protections in exchange for more leftist/gov’t control.
Eventually you have the gov’t controlling Monsanto completely, and Monsanto controlling the food supply [nearly] completely, then you turn the screws on Monsanto and the food supply.
