Monsanto: Here ya go guys, more food made possible by your friends here at Monsanto
Deprived community: Oh thank you, thank you! This is an answer to our prayers
Monsanto: Here ya go guys, we've brought another modified crop for you to grow.
Child: Mr., Mr.! How come my friend's head is shaped like that? And why do i have these burns on my feet and legs? And my brother and sister, they're never hungry anymore. Why is this happening to us?
Monsanto: Well son, non GMO seeds have become so scarce that your papa was forced to buy our GMO seeds. In doing so, he also had to purchase our round up so that the crops can grow. Him and your family have been exposed to this chemical treatment, and have been consuming the modified crop. It's no wonder your getting sick. I mean jeez, we don't even consume or go near that stuff.
Child: Oh i see. Well isn't there a better more safe way of doing this? One that does not jeopardize our health while providing food for our family? I mean, i am thankful and all, but i don't like to see my brother like that
Monsanto: Yes, there is. But that would take a lot of time and money, and here at Monsanto our modo is "If it isn't profitable for us, F--- em" So you see, we're not concerned about the health of other human beings. We just want money and control. And by the way, we'll soon be using Agent Orange on the crops so you won't have to worry about the roundup
Child: Oh...well...i guess that makes sense.
Monsanto: But hey, i'm not completely heartless. Allow me to now offer you some modern western medicine to help you and your family out
Child: Oh thank you! Yes that would be greatly appreciated
Monsanto: Not a problem. That'll be 10,000 dollars please
What I am arguing is that for the immediate future, those big corporations are a necessary evil.
Right, your argument is short term thinking. And necessary evil my a--. Let's just leave it at evil.
Again, you are giving Monsanto too much credit/trust to think they care enough to make strides in creating safer modified foods/weed killers. They are concerned about one thing. Profits. So you're point about making progress concerning the safety of the products is null. They don't care, and they never will. I would never support or trust anything this company does in the future, nor do i have any hope of them magically waking up one day and caring about human life that is not their own
