Yesterday I ranted about the corrupt state of the world's biggest and most unresponsive corporation: Amairicunn politics, its "two" party political monopoly system, and the theater of government institutions and (s)election processes designed to serve increasingly naked corporate interests. What has happened, I've been arguing - if indeed a rant, a "venting of frustrations" can be called "argument," is that the preamble to the Constitution was subtly changed in a de facto way, and that there are certain key transitions in this process, one of them being, of course, the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, with the institution of its corresponding Federal Tax Police to make sure the bankers were paid their interest on time. The preamble should now read We the Corporations of the United States of America, in order to form a more perfect union... &c.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not, and have never been friendly to socialism of any sort, for it always seems to degenerate into the hardened forms that malignly informed so much 2oth century history. Without the recognition of the right to acquire and accumulate wealth, human progress stalls and eventually stops. But when wealth is used to subvert the right of others to acquire it, or is used to impoverish them or disempower them, then like all other ideologies, it becomes subversive of the common good. And nothing more adequately illustrates the culture of corporate corruption - crony crapitalism - that modern America has become than the issue of GMOs, for once again, farmers attempting to protect themselves from out of control corporate giants have lost another battle in the jesters' court, and I'll bet, I'll just bet that you didn't hear about this on on Faux News or See B.S.:
Note the key injustice of the decision of the US Supremes:
'The US Supreme Court upheld biotech giant Monsanto’s claims on genetically-engineered seed patents and the company’s ability to sue farmers whose fields are inadvertently contaminated with Monsanto materials.
"The high court left intact Monday a federal appeals court decision that threw out a 2011 lawsuit from the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association and over 80 other plaintiffs against Monsanto that sought to challenge the agrochemical company’s aggressive claims on patents of genetically-modified seeds. The suit also aimed to curb Monsanto from suing anyone whose field is contaminated by such seeds.
"The group of plaintiffs, which included many individual American and Canadian family farmers, independent seed companies and agricultural organizations, were seeking preemptive protections against Monsanto’s patents. The biotech leviathan has filed over 140 lawsuits against farmers for planting the company’s genetically-engineered seeds without permission, while settling around 700 other cases without suing."
The article goes on to state that the plaintiffs thought the US Supremes somehow simply didn't understand the farmers' concerns.
But that's the point. The Supremes most surely did understand.
They just don't care. And because they don't care, justice was subverted to serve the twisting of law. This is the same institution that, for reasons of law let us remember, once said that black persons were only 3/5 of a person. This most recent finding would seem to fit their moral track record quite well.
It's important to remember, that supreme court injustices are politicians too, and just like politicians, they can be bought, blackmailed, or coerced too.
See you on the flip side....
