Is Monsanto the DEVIL?

Go onto google and type: “monsanto is”Is Monsanto the Devil?    here are the suggestions you get…
“monsanto is evil”
“monsanto is bad”
“monsanto is THE DEVIL”

The problem with Monsanto is not really Monsanto and its beyond just one company or even a group of corporations, the real problem behind all of the evil things you see in Monsanto is….Greed.   Do not blame the corporations anymore because guess what, corporations are made up of people and those people are your cousins, your aunts, your uncles, and maybe YOU.  We are the greedy ones, and we have created this mess ourselves, and to think that we can blame someone else is just getting away from the point that we are  the source of the problem.  So… what can we do about it?

What can we as “good citizens” do to turn around the sad situation of GREED?

First off, understand that our hearts need a savior, we are lost in our sinful passions without GOD. Theres no gettting away from that.  Realize that and seek GOD through his son Jesus Christ.

Secondly, invest your time and money in foods and beverages and companies that are responsible for making the world a better place. Look for sustainable practices that keep our earth healthy. Look for food products that are more interested in giving us nutrition than giving us cheap filler. One company that comes to mind is Beyond Organic, farm fresh all organic food that can be delivered straight to your house. Learn about it here: Beyond Organic Foods & Beverages , but there are really so many out there, support one!

Third, educate everyone you know about food. So many people live in ignorance and are happy to eat poptarts, fruity pebbles, and hot pockets their whole life. They think thats what food is. Kindly educate them before its too late.  Aren’t you happy you received information about what you eat? Of course you are.. so share this knowledge with your family, your friends, and acquaintances.

Fourthly,  if you want to be the “change you want in the world” as Mother theresa once said, then buy a farm, grow a garden, visit an organic farmer’s market, do something radical and become an activist for eating what God made not what scientists formulate.

Take Away: Monsanto isn’t evil: YOU ARE.  Comment below.

    First, even though corporations (as all human organisations) are indeed made up of people, they are made up of specially *selected* people (as not any psychological profile is fit to be a CEO). The psychological traits you need to be able to achieve a high decision-making position in a corporation are pretty close to psychopathy.

    Second, humans are extremely flexible and malleable. There may exist some kind of “human nature” but it is socially determined in a very large part. This means that when you join a community – corporation, religious community, fan club or even just an internet forum – you will be formed and shaped by it. Understandably, the culture of the community in which you spend a lot of your best and most important and most productive time will shape you pretty deeply. In many of cases, this is your place of work – for managers aspiring to get higher and higher, it’s mostly corporations. The previous point, that of selection comes in if you do not allow yourself to be shaped – in case of a corporation it might be standing up against what you call “greed” – you will be expelled from that community. In a corporate environmnet, you’ll get fired and replaced in short term. But more likely than not, you won’t even take or even aspire for such a job if you don’t have the right temperament for it.

    These two mechanisms form a (one could say dialectical) unit of selection and education. Simply put, not all people need to be “greedy” for “greedy” corporations to exist. You only need a mechanism that selects people capable of “greed” and then makes them as “greedy” as possible. Most normal people wouldn’t even be selected – and anyone that has the slightest capacity for this “greed” will be pushed in that direction very very strongly in a corporate environment.

    The problem is not with every single person, with “us” or with “human nature” (as this argument is just a slight variation of the “greed is in human nature” standard). It is with the mechanism that allows a class of the most destructive and short sighted behaviours to become controlling.

    This of course doesn’t mean that people have no personal responsibility. Of course they have. But just like great power means great responsibility (Spiderman’s uncle said this so it must be true), to fulfill your responsibilities, you need commensurate power – and that is not automatically granted in all situations. In real life, you have some little power, mostly to influence your own life and that of your family and your friends to a very small extent. But that is all. If you care about “the future” or “society” or “the children” in general (and I’m not sarcastic – people *should* care about these things – I just can’t find the proper word), you will have to somehow acquire more power. That’s what democracy should be about.

    (And btw don’t believe for a moment that you have too much influence even over your own family’s thinking. Children are subjected to large corporate pedagogical pressures every day of their lives, and the way corporations “teach” children is way more effective than how schools do it – not because they have better methods but because they have more time with children (American children spend almost as much time on screen media consumption as sleeping), more resources and a much easier job. It is, for example much easier to teach kids to nag than to teach them to read and write. It is much easier to teach them about brands and the “lifestyles” associated with them than to teach them how to solve a quadratic equation. And every video game, every TV programme, every corporate internet site teaches children about these things – or worse.)

    Putting all the blame on the individual, framing this issue purely as one of individual responsibility is not just unproductive – it is wrong, in my opinion. All it can lead to is blaming people who are less lucky, less intelligent, or just poorer or less well informed than you, or are coerced in some other wayí into making these choices. Of course they have some responsibility. A parent who takes a 2 year old to McDonalds every day cannot be considered a very good parent from this point of view (although very often the reasons for their behaviour are very much understandable and very strong) – but what does this achieve? Just putting the blame on a “bad” parent won’t change the fact that it’s their child who will eat unhealthily, not just the parent, and that the child will probably grow up thinking doing that is all right and will probably do the same to their own children.

    The problem is the structure: large scale high-productivity industrial agriculture producing for a global market. It is an extremely powerful structure (and of course part of an even more powerful superstructure) and you will not be able to influence it with individual action in any meaningful way. External control is needed – legislation, regulation, even breaking up large corporations. Nothing else can work as individuals are simply powerless compared to them.
