|Let us not forget that Monsanto has also developed a seed that has a "self-destruct" gene, which makes the seeds destroy themselves after the growing season, making seed-saving impossible anyway. What is the mindset behind such an idea? The idea seems totally evil to me. Also, I don't think Monsanto has helped anyone but themselves. All they have done is make crops dependent on fertilizers that they sell. It has been proven that organic products make more money per acre than big "Monsanto dependent" crops. After the foarmer buys Monsanto's seed, buys Monsanto's round-up, and uses Monsanto's fertilizer, there is nothing left in the farmer's pocket except small government subsities and thousands of acres of worthless, nutrient deficient dirt.
He that controls the seed, controls the food, and in turn controls the world.
