Monsanto

When is it going to end? “It” being the absolutely insane reign of stupidity that corporate America is terrorizing people with? This article on Monsanto suing people for their seeds, doing what seeds do, and propagating, is just another chapter in sad legacy of capitalism.

From “Pay Monsanto, or Starve“:

Is it just me, or is there a seriously backward legal perspective here – I mean, if I throw a rock through your window, and then file suit against you for keeping it, you’d think I’m barmy, yes? But no, industry influence has somehow skewed legal thinking into a wonderland that even Alice wouldn’t visit. Shouldn’t the corporation be fined for not keeping their genetically modified seeds within their own borders, and shouldn’t the farmer be compensated for the loss of purity of his non-GM crops?
