The other day I was driving along and was thinking about how Monsanto thought up the evil, disease making crap that they have convinced most world powers to purchase and feed to their citizens. I’m not convinced that it was as deliberately orchestrated, as we always think. What I came up with is my vision of a group of Monsanteurs and a brainstorming session:
Ok. So we have to come up with a way to sell all this excess crap we have left over, rotting in the yard. No one will take it away and we can’t just dump it in the rivers anymore. After that Anniston thing, we have got this big target on our backs.
After WWII we have all this left over poison and it is just sitting there killing all the grass and stuff.
Ya. The grounds keeper says that it is seeping in and around the trees. He says that it is killing everything around there. It sounds kind of bad, because he said that some birds have died in that area as well. We have to do something about it!
Why won’t anyone take it away? Will that disposal company we used to use not come and pick it up?
They said that it is too dangerous and they don’t want to be responsible for this stuff that we made. They claim it is too toxic to dispose it safely. Pffft!
Why don’t we sell this to farmers to kill the weeds in their fields if it is killing all the weeds and grass in our yard?
Well, if it kills all the weeds and grass, won’t it also kill the crops that they are selling??
What if we tried that new thing that R & D was working on?
You know…make the crops so that the weed killer, stuff we want to sell, doesn’t kill the crops, just the weeds??
Yeah! That way we can get them coming and going! We can sell the seeds and the poison to kill everything else!
Well that is so good! Is there any chance that people will get sick from putting this into food?
Who cares. Let’s just pay some scientist friends to write papers that say it is safe. We have lots of friends in government that will help us get these things worked out.
We can hire some of those politicians to work here and help us get stuff passed.
If we do this stuff, we can sell our chemicals and seeds to everyone! Do you realize, that if we can pull this off, we will OWN food! That is just crazy. We have to do this!
That is how I imagined it kind of went. Sad but truish.
