A new Kickstarter-style campaign looks to fund a bomb designed to blow up Monsanto and anybody else who sees food as a product they can manipulate for profit. Crowd-sourced funding has famously funded i-phone docks, watchbands, and bluetooth speakers with millions of dollars. Nice projects but in five years will anybody care?
Now the same tool is being harnessed as a way to take back the right to know if our food has been genetically engineered. The bomb is made of money and will be used to get genetically engineered foods labeled in California. Monsanto has been fighting the whole way. Why? Maybe it's because in countries that require GMOs to be labeled consumers have rejected them. Yeah. That might be it. Or maybe it's because the genetic engineering they do is designed primarily to allow their patented GMO crops to withstand massive doses of the herbicide "Round-Up" without dying. Oh, and they sell the Round-Up, too. Might be that.
What we know is that they are not concerned about what is happening to the health of Americans. As Americans who are used to kicking the ass of anybody who threatens our way of living, it's time to drop a bomb. Monsanto is an invader. An enemy. And our government is sworn to protect this country from enemies both foreign and domestic. After decades of allowing Monsanto and others to corrupt our politicians and regulatory agencies, to intimidate everyone from small farmers and state legislators to the Governor of Vermont, it’s time to say “No more!” Tell Monsanto and the rest of the Biotech Bullies that we demand the right to know whether the food we eat has been genetically engineered and it needs to be clearly labeled.
None of us has enough money on our own. But together we are mighty. And not to be fucked with.
