Monsanto and the petrochemical industry have been paying top dollar for about a century for the most devious of snake oil salesmen and manipulators - and have been weaponizing the industry for so long that the snake oil is slathered all over the god-almighty-deluded-shareholders. This is a case of zombies moving in unison on a suspended platform that, due to the toxic vibe is heading for collapse. Best way for the planet to survive is to stop using, boycott and divest.
These ‘players’ in the technological revolution are legends in their own minds.
I am also reminded that 70% of the food on our tables comes from small producers. There is NO REASON other than deluded greed for this degree of toxicity and death-wish masquerading as arrogant power.
A westerner can still, in many traditional Indigenous lands, walk through a forest garden and not even realize that it is indeed being cultivated, the scope and scale of the organic cultivation so thoroughly integrated and balanced as to be invisible until collection for a meal is demonstrated.
This art is being practiced by increasing numbers of westerners inspired by the work and aggregate research of Dave Jacke. Restorative, abundant and stunningly productive, explore the Edible Forest Garden and related innovations surging among the ever growing ranks of folks fed up with being poisoned.
Could you imagine if the investors in Monsanto transferred their ethical priorities to sustainability and gave up the religion of profit at any cost?
