Imagine it. Corporations owning life. If we were to have told you that 100 years ago, you’d have laughed and dismissed the idea. But that is exactly what has happened today.
Certain seed companies have patented their genetically modified seeds. It’s gotten so bad that phrases such as “pollen drift” reach our ears every time we turn around.
Folks, This Ain’t Normal!!
At the very least the companies with the genetically modified seed should be in charge of keeping their invention to themselves. It’s not the farmer’s fault that his land happens to border another farmer’s.
Think pet laws.
You have a pit bull. Is it your responsibility to keep him on your property or is it your neighbors’ responsibility to keep him off of theirs? Last I checked the dog owner was responsible.
Not only are you responsible for keeping the pollen drift away from your crops, but if don’t, you are liable to PAY. Does anyone else out there think there is something wrong with this?
But what can we do? We’re just one small person against the huge tycoons. Money is power. Or is it?
Well, what are you waiting for? Post your ideas below.
Remember – Change always comes from the bottom up. It starts with you and me.
