Monsanto in your bedroom: Death – Genetic Reconstruction

Corporate science in this last second of billions of years of the evolution of life on this planet has decided it understands the complex engines of life to such a degree that it can engineer and control life better than Nature itself. Besides this apparent immense hubris, the real issue is that they know that what they are doing is no more than Nature’s trial and error on steroids. While Nature might take a million years to correct an error, civilization does not have the luxury of such patience or risk-taking in the face of immoral corporate greed replacing the engine of evolution. The biggest difference? Nature needs not know better, people do.

Death Lyrics

Genetic Reconstruction

Extending a life with total resistance
To fatal disease, future methods of science

Replacing what is real by using technology
Population control, selecting those who will breed
A specific type of form chosen for the unborn
A mind without emotion
Progressive anatomy

Genetic reconstruction
Evolution in production

[Solos: Murphy, Shuldiner]

Producing a race of human machines
A new age of existence the world will see

Replacing what is real by using technology
Population control, selecting those who will breed
A specific type of form chosen for the unborn
A mind without emotion
Progressive anatomy

Genetic reconstruction
Evolution in production

Monsanto, Genetic Pollution and Monopolism (SourceWatch)

Because Monsanto’s engineered genes can readily migrate to non-GM crops (see Monsanto and the Roundup Ready Controversy) organic farms are increasingly finding that via cross-pollination their pure food has been contaminated with GM DNA thus ruining their businesses [1] [2]. “In 2002, Ontario farmer Alex Nurnberg had tests conducted on his 100-ton harvest of organic corn. Twenty tons were found to be contaminated by GMOs, which Nurnberg believes were blown by the wind from the corn on a neighboring farm. ‘I was not ready for it. I feel such a wrath about it,’ says Nurnberg” [3].

The “solution”, creating physical and distance barriers to prevent the spread of pollen, is proving to be unreliable. Says this Wall Street Journal article “Such moves to restrict the spread of GM crops often are ineffective. Last month in Australia, government experts discovered biotech canola genes in two non-GM varieties despite a ban covering half the country. “Regretfully, the GM companies appear unable to contain their product,” said Kim Chance, agriculture minister for the state of Western Australia, on the agency’s Web site.” [4] italics ours.

The paths to contamination are numerous. Besides the cross-pollination by insects, there are: wind, birds, eating and deposition by animals such as livestock or rodents, flooding, contamination at grain mills, accidental dropping of seed from bags or trucks, intentional contamination. Included in this are illegal imports of contaminated seeds to non-approving countries which discover it by accident (or fail to discover it until it’s already growing) [5] etc. “It’s amazing … There’s just so many different ways it can be spread around” [6].
