Genetically Modified Truth? How Corpoate Money Corrupted Science.

Little Nicky is sceptical about many things, it’s in my job description. Incidentally, for the benefit of those over qualified, under educated idiots who think I’m right wing extremist, it is a basic tenet of Liberal philosophy that we all have a duty to question that which is presented as an established truth.

Recent established truths have included ‘Mass immigration is good for the economy’, ‘borrowing money to pay interest on debt already owed is sound financial management’, ‘the science is settled’ and ‘Genetically modified food crops will feed the world and turn us into a race of superbeings’.

No doubt you have come across many fascists who would suppress free speech in order to silence questions on such topics. They will call themselves liberals but how can anybody be a liberal when they oppose the freedom to doubt and question.

We will return to the first three areas in which the ‘liberal’ fascists are trying to control debate very soon no doubt, but for today we are looking at an article from the left leaning alternet.com (common sense has no political bias) on …

6 of the Biotech Industry’s Biggest Marketing Myths to Convince You GMOs Are Great

After an opening section which looks at how biotech corporations have bought scientific opinion (which, like Barack Obamas arse when he was a teenage ‘crack ho’) is sold very cheaply) and describes how corporate money has corrupted the scientific research process and turned higher education into a kind of brothel for compliant intellects, it gets more specific, focusing on Elanco, a biotech subsidiary of pharmeceutical giant Eli Lilley to expose the blatant lies in their document How We’ll Feed The World, which is presented as an objective study but is really nothing more than marketing puff for the products of the parent company and their partners.

Enriching life in the USA says the Elanco web page. OK, but enriching it with what you might well ask. Bovine growth hormones to create milk cows (sorry, units – we must make the process impersonal) that produce more milk.

The next lie is that consumers who want unadulterated food are a nutty fringe minority.

Actually most consumers want unadulterated food, the fringe minority is not defined by their eccentricity but their wealth. Governments and academic crooks have collaborated with corporate interests to make pure, unadulterated foods unaffordable to the majority.

And so it goes on. Click HERE to go to the Alternet page and read the full, three page exposé. And remember, its not the freethinkers and sceptics that support political movements whose leaders talk of criminalising dissent on topics like global warming scaremongering, or the lies that hide the dangers of GM foods.

Forget the warlords and the madmen, it is the truth tellers who pose the real threat to power.
