Awesome job Max… thanks for standing up to those pricks.
Keep fighting the good fight Max!
Is that the woman from The Corporation?
Monsanto engineers seed, so that when you spray for weeds the chemical used kills all the weeds except the seed plant so that the farmer must buy monsanto chemical because it works with that seed only. But there is more, when you buy monsanto seed you have to register the amount of acres seeded @$15.00 per acre for canola which also goes to monsanto. This is how they can control farmers. Also Cargill is the largest private corporation in the USA with sales at over 100 billion. (Forbes)
Keep up the good work Max. We need you.
I think operations in the US like Whole Foods Markets by themselves could put a major dent in Monasanto and a bunch of other crap food hucksters.
If only WF would advertise the benefits of their line of products to more people. Let people know you can still eat good and not get fat if your food is not crap. Let people know it is really cheaper to buy “whole foods” than Walmart GMO garbage which is not even food.
So like Alex says so often, we are back again to the Left Activist crowd being willfully ignorant to base economics. There is also the elitist angle to deal with I find.
Yes, that’s Vandava Shiva. She’s also in The World According to Monsanto documentary.
… sorry, Vandana Shiva.
Who that controls the seed makes the rules! that’s the game of Monsanto. Not any different then the Fed!
It is so refreshing to hear sanity breaking free to be heard! Blessings!
Very, very good. Definitely more like this, please.
Intellectual monopoly is a tax by corporations on the free communication and creativity of people.
Since communication and creativity are naturally free, intellectual property laws can only ever be tools of exploitation and control.
Balloons! (Just a little bit high here, so please don’t laugh at me too much!)
I was looking out my kitchen window and saw some kids let a helium balloon go. All of the sudden, I remembered when, in elementary school, all of us kids–the entire school–let off balloons with messages inside for prospective pen-pals. (Hopefully, kids don’t do that anymore. Sort of dangerous if you think about it.) And it occurred to me that that’s a fun way to spread messages to people that otherwise, we can’t reach. Messages could go on small slips of paper inserted into balloons, on the balloon, or attached on a tag. The message I thought of was to tell people to watch the doc. “The World According to Monsanto,” only because you guys primed me to think of the doc. again, and b/c I’m sure that few in the US know about Monsanto. But it could be anything . . . a message that says “check out Maxkeiser.com”; “visit Pirate myFilm.com”; “check out Killercoke.org & boycott Coke” . . . anything. Balloon campaigns could even result if finders of balloons were asked to send off their own. Sort of a new twist on chain letters. Don’t know if sending off balloons would be harmful in any way to the environment. But you have to admit, the idea of sending off balloon messages is fun. ;-) I’d like to be on the receiving end of one.
Excellent work Max! I admire your drive. I remember seeing Monsanto whores peddling their seeds on poor indigenous farmers in Chiapas Mexico some years back (6-8 yrs ago) The Monsanto man — a fat macho covered in gaudy jewelry who probably never farmed single day in his life pimpn’ the GMO seeds to the Chiapans with grand promises of wealth and riches, but no promesise of the truth: contracts and law suits over seeds that were designed to “plant” them (the farmers) their children, and their grand children into perpetual, inescapable debt from generation to generation. Monsanto has locked down the next generation’s fate so long as they hold patent to the first generations mistake- BUYING NAZI SEEDS.
Good job, Max! Well said.
Thanks – I’ll check that out..
Up close and personal with Vandana Shiva:
