Of course we’ll be here. This is FreeRepublic, not some site for kneejerk leftie corporation bashing.
There is a wonderful conservative solution for those who are hysterical about Monsanto, though. If they don’t like their products, then they can not buy them.
Easier said than done.
I think some of what we are doing in our food growing, processing and delivery systems need to be examined closely. If testing GMO against non GMO products to see if provable differences exist in health and production in farming operations, why not do the testing?
How easy would it be for those wishing to create harm, do so by messing with our food systems? Not necessarily profit motivated, but with other goals in mind?
It’s not the job of the Capitalist to defend corporations, but to defend a free market.
Many large corporations are not interested in any type of free-market.
Fine with me, if they would allow food to be marked GMO. But this is not capitolism at work, this is crony capitolism its evil brother. Monsanto, by hook or crook fights truth in labeling laws, and anti monopoly laws so that he is only guy on the block, and he sells poison to people.
I would love it if it was just capitolism. But its politics instead.
“There is a wonderful conservative solution for those who are hysterical about Monsanto, though. If they dont like their products, then they can not buy them.”
If only it were that simple. Monsanto’s junk products are overtaking the market due to their legislative & judicial protection. And their heavy-handedness has also prevented required labeling of products that contain GMOs. Ever ask yourself why a company would try so hard & spend so much money to stifle competition & the free market??
