THE COMING FIGHT FOR HEIRLOOM SEEDS

Readers of this site are aware that I've been making a prediction regarding Mon(ster)santo, Duponzanto, and all the big agribusiness giants. As more and more studies are being done questioning the healthfulness and safety of their "patented seeds", and as more and more farmers globally wake up and realize that it has been a mercantilist policy of the US bought-and-paid-for government to spread the seeds and rid the world of natural seeds, or "heirloom seeds" as they are now called, I have been arguing that there will be an inevitable, and growing, worldwide backlash against these companies and the US government. I have also argued that the BRICSA nations, which are attempting to form a trading bloc in opposition to what they perceive as an out-of-control unipolar Western world, led by the USA and its allies, will seize the opportunity to sell such heirloom seeds on a large scale.

Consider the perception management opportunities this would provide, for it would allow Russia, China, India, Brazil, and South Africa, to portray themselves as being on the side of the family farmer in opposition to the corrupt agribusiness corporations with their "bottom line" attitude to human life and "science."

Well, it may be starting:

Via Campesina and the Fight for Seeds

Well, it comes as no surprise that Chief Injustice Roberts and the Supremes have once again ruled in favor of the Mon(ster)santo laws; the precedent is long established already in US Patent law, which is being urged on the rest of the world as an international legal standard. But as the article notes, there's pushback, and it's being organized in Indonesia this year.

This choice intrigues me, for Indonesia is a country to watch, and one cannot imagine it being in favor of the Mon(ster)santo products or the laws that inevitably come with them.  Rest assured, Moscow and Beijing, and probably New Delhi and Brasilia, will have a representative of their embassies quietly observing this event, and they should,  for the growing opposition to GMO seeds, and the inability of poor farmers to plant their heirloom seeds, or even to retain a portion of their GMO seeds - if they're already unfortunate enough to have bought into the scam - for replanting, is a geopolitical opportunity of the first magnitude.

This is a story to watch folks, for I predict it's only going to grow, as will, inevitably, the private mercenary backlash from out of control corporations.

As for Indonesia, it must walk carefully in a Pacific rim where it is carefully balanced between the USA-Western interests in the region, and that of China. But, in the long run, I will not be surprised if the BRICSA nations become the BRICSAI nations...

See you on the flip side.

  1. Does anyone remember the book by Lewis Carrol titled, “Through the Looking Glass”?

    A few years ago we all stepped ‘through the looking glass’, regardless whether we realized or understood what happened, the world’s ruling elite actually did cause us to ‘step through the looking glass’. Today they ignore tradition, tomorrow they ignore the Rule of Law. Read the following….

    The U.S. Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Monsanto and its patented seeds last Monday by throwing out a case tirelessly petitioned for by organic farmers. That is bad enough of course, but read this, A Bankruptcy Court Absolves J. P. Morgan Chase(Bank) of All Liability against real estate appraisers in the bankruptcy case of Evaluation Solutions/ES Appraisal Services. “Despite numerous objections from appraisers and agent/brokers alike, a Florida bankruptcy judge has ruled in favor of JPMorgan Chase in granting a Bar Order which absolves Chase of any liability on future claims from appraisers, agents, and brokers for unpaid fees for valuation services that were delivered to Chase.”

    So, a professional valuator performs a valuation service that was delivered to ‘Chase’ (a corporation) who benefitted fom the professional valuator’s valuation service that was delivered to ‘Chase’, but “Chase’ is NOT required to pay for the professional valuator’s, “valuation service”, whom ‘Chase’ derived a benefit. Folks, this is the “Handwrriting on the Wall”.

    People get ready for a raping you will never forget!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I tend to agree with Dr. Ferrell’s blog and am on the side with all those who posted before me. A ‘war’ against ‘heirloom seeds’ is insidious, which should tell anyone much, or all they need to know, because “WHO” would or could side against a traditional way of life?

    Oh yeah, wait for it……the light is beginning to shine, the day is dawning, the sun (or Son) is rising.

    The question is, who is “WHO”? That could be a clue……………

  3. Monsanto is loosing the battle in Massachusetts. I live in a sub-urban / rural town in Massachusetts. I can’t tell you how in recent years I have seen my community go back to it’s agricultural roots. People are raising chickens and gardening like never before and it’s not just my town but all the surrounding towns. Farmers markets have sprung up everywhere. My homebody husband who can’t stand driving more than 15 minutes to do anything will drive 45 minutes to go to the regional seed swap.
    The other interesting phenomena about this topic is that TPTB have not managed to divide and conquer on this subject. Being a Ron Paul fan / former liberal / republican who is also a Unitarian Universalist I happen to know a lot of liberals and conservatives. Everyone I know, both liberal and conservative is for labeling GMOs. Only the ignorant don’t care about it but no one is in the Monsanto camp.

  4. People must learn to live their lives with moral intention, and be willing to forgo the convenience of going along to get along. Time to grow up & mature beyond the age of puberty & approval seeking. Going along to get along will in the fullness of time be the most inconvenient option of all. Let’s begin with money called currency, meaning one’s moral & ethical current & sanction.

    That to which you direct your currency, is also that to which to give sanction. Direct your currency wisely. The national currency has been co-opted & turned against the people. The people fund their own servitude.

  5. We either put a end to these fiends or they will put and end to all life in this solar system. These Godmen dreams of Cybermen and Borgs is truly the worship of death and absolute greed. As in 1984 power absolutely is their drug better total death than freedom for the rest of us these mad evil idiots puppet masters to the end HELL IS THEIR PARADISE they as THE GREAT SATANS RULERS.

  6. I truly hope you are right in your analyses Dr. Farrell- would like nothing better- it’s a concept giving us a ray of light/hope- one just reads otherwise so much doom and gloom with not a ray of hope-

    but slightly off-topic: according to German MSM news today Snowden applied for political asylum in Germany but it was rejected because he is a citizen of a “Democracy”- right- and I shot Franz Ferdinand of Austria/Serbia…

    please stay well- many regards-

    Larry in Germany

  7. The problem is you will always have that corrupt official who will sell out his countrymen for the banksters’ thirty pieces of silver. Until we re-invent society where corruption is anathema to the people we will never win… unless we get outside help. Hopefully somewhere there is a mad scientist with a good heart genetically engineering some superheroes to fight all these villains. In the meantime I suggest intense yoga practices in an effort to one day possibly photosynthesize your own food from the Sun and thereby get around the GMO poison.

  8. Heirloom seeds are not simply natural, they are varieties of say for example of potatoes and tomatoes that existed before heavy selective breeding of standardized varieties. (Those newer varieties bred for say shipping from the west coast to the east coast would still be natural in many cases.)

    Usually heirloom seed have been preserved by smaller communities.

  9. The sooner & the more wicked
    that backlash wind blows, the better.
    I hope it also scorches
    the hell out of The Supreme Denial Court.
    (a.k.a. the so-called Supreme Court).
