I.G. FARBENSANTO AT IT AGAIN: SEED EXCHANGES IN AFRICA UNDER PRESSURE

It appears that big "agribusiness" - which we less-than-lovingly refer to here on this website as I.G. Farbensanto - is at it once again, using its usual bag of dirty tricks to attempt to outlaw normal seed exchanges in Africa (whew! is that the distinct whiff of imperialism and even racism that I smell here? Sure smells like it). At least, it is if the following article shared by Mr. V.T. is true:

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2017/06/07/monsanto-big-ag-colonizing-africa-criminalizing-traditional-seed-exchanges/

Just in case you missed how utterly draconian their policies are, and how utterly immoral and out of touch with humanity they are, consider these opening paragraphs of the article, noting in particular the use of GMOs as part of John Perkins' "economic hit man" strategy:

Of the many concerns surrounding the dominance of agrichemicals companies and GMO foods, the most frightening dimension is that corporate manufactured seed is wiping out global biodiversity in food crops and creating a punitive legal framework for our total dependence on these companies for food.

Monsanto, Syngenta and other majors in agribusiness are presently colonizing Africa with the help of international aid programs which force nations into agreements requiring dependence on patented seeds, thereby prohibiting traditional seed exchanges.

Reporting on the situation in Tanzania, Ebe Daems of Mondiaal Nieuws informs us of recent legislation which puts local farmers under the threat of heavy fines of up to €205,300 and even prison terms of up to 12 years for violating the intellectual property rights of agrichemicals companies if individuals sell or trade in non-patented seed.

“If you buy seeds from Syngenta or Monsanto under the new legislation, they will retain the intellectual property rights. If you save seeds from your first harvest, you can use them only on your own piece of land for non-commercial purposes. You’re not allowed to share them with your neighbors or with your sister-in-law in a different village, and you cannot sell them for sure. But that’s the entire foundation of the seed system in Africa,” ~Michael Farrelly of TOAM, an organic farming movement in Tanzania.

This is highly disturbing, yet the laws are part of the umbrella of G8 agreements which require intellectual property rights to be enforced as part of an exchange for development aid. This type of agreement is shockingly similar to the methods described by economic hitman John Perkins, who, in his book Confessions of an Economic Hitman, explained how aid and development agencies conquer sovereign nations by offering at in exchange for natural resources.

Imagine, for a moment, that you're a poor African farmer. You may, or may not be, literate, but even if you are, you probably aren't a lawyer able to spend the time and sort through all the tangle of legalese that your government has engaged in, forbidding you to exchange your natural seeds in traditional seed exchanges.

The result?

As the author of the article, Alex Pietrowski points out (and as many others have also pointed out): the loss of biodiversity in seeds, and a corresponding loss of ability of natural seeds and food supply to adjust to changing natural conditions. And that imperils everyone, in the name of corporate profits and power for Mr. Globaloney. Why? Very simple: nature can respond far faster to changing conditions, than can Mr. Globaloney's scientists in I.G. Farbensanto's laboratories.

But no mind: I.G. Farbensanto would rather imperil the entire human food chain - including their own - in the name of profits and power than wake up and exercise their (here comes those words they hate) God-given rationality, conscience, and reason. There's only one thing worse than the atheist Communist, and that's the atheist crony corporate crapitalist. Both are forms of organized nihilism, but the crony crapitalist does it so much better, and makes more money in the process. Like the Communist, they attempt to shut down real discussion, and promote a narrative.

You know me, however, and know that I cannot resist a bit of high octane speculation when I see stories like this. I cannot help recall the third episode of the third season of the American television series, Blacklist, starring James Spader as the arch-international criminal mastermind, Raymond Reddington. In that episode, titled "Eli Matchett," Reddington and former FBI agent Elizabeth Keene(played by actress Megan Boone), stumble less-than-accidentally on a plot of an argibusiness giant, a fictitious corporation called "Verdiant Industries," to corrupt their own GMO seeds by genetically engineering a virus which attacks them, wiping out the food supply they themselves have foisted on most of the world via crony crapitalist means, which are, as they always are, special "concessions" for their products from governments.

Of course, the fictitious "Verdiant Industries" has a ready-made cure for their own pestilence, which after the food crisis breaks open, they will then offer to a starving world at a handsome profit, and, of course, even more power.

The trouble is, having watched the GMO "agribusiness" industry over the years, I put nothing past them.

And hence my nickname for them: I.G. Farbensanto.

Raymond Reddington, we need you.

See you on the flip side...

    Wherever you live, whatever you eat, your intimately linked; the wilderness that each bite threatens; yet, at the same time, depends upon – can and will bite when unbalanced through toxic monocultures.
    More than 7,000 species have fed humanity throughout history[may be, by magnitude, much higher]; a reminder of the diversity of nature when not being savagely raped by an unconscionable leadership.
    Today, because of unelected unaccountable leadership, just 30 crops provide 90% of the calories in the human diet, and only three species-rice, wheat and maize-account for more than 50% of our calorie intake.

      Instead of the current Frankenfood paradigm model under 21st Century Technocratic Nazi-style management & debt bondage financing; humanity MUST Demand a paradigm shift from that culling monoculture model to one that engenders exponential biodiversity; away from for-profit chemical-intensive agriculture to ecologically intensive agriculture; from input externalities to internalized inputs; from capital-intense production to low-or zero-cost production; from yield per acre to health and nutrition per acre; and from food as commodity to food as nourishment and nutrition.
      Let’s get REAL!!!
      or Fuhgeddaboudit !

    How strange the times when China is the lesser of two evils here. The Chinese are making literally many African inroads with an ever increasing footprint within the dark continent,; ironically shedding more light than the West’s purposely chained shackles/shekels[that coined the dark continent in ignorance

      Is there no doubt that this shift shaping into an image of life versus death; living versus corporate robots; light versus darkness; and evil versus ? .
      Because who is shape shifting into a force to counter this evil?
      Another, less form of evil.
      A No Choice 21st Century alternative close of
      Evil 1 or evil 2?

      1. Robert Barricklow

        Literally, it is a battle between life & death.
        Or, is it a choice between
        a living Earth or a living death?

      2. We won’t change the future unless we change the now. And many many more people are waking up. I just can’t get over the feeling that this healthy/wellness meme that the they’re pushing is is social engineering, they don’t care about our heath. The last 3 people I knew who died were extreme health nuts. What killed them was the hazardous materials they worked with, working for the corporation. The GMO food we eat, the pollution we breathe the vaccines are the soft kill, it takes years to accumulate the toxins. We are the ones who need to change the most but the programming is pretty hard to undo and until we can re-program with a different narrative then the 1 percent stays in power. They’ve caused enough human suffering. I really feel like a shift is happening now and it’s up to us, not them. Is humanity the social engineering experiment being helped along w

        1. With their evil manipulating tricks and dark majic? Earth is our home, we need to slow down and listen to nature, we are just a small part of the big picture.

  3. The bizarre nature of these fools is it takes Stan Lee the creator of comic book characters to coin a cliché. With great power comes great responsibilities something these wiseguys don’t seem to understand or care about the helmsmen of these corporations don’t think period. Greed for power is all that drives these power mad zombies.

  4. A GMO engineered famine would probably be good for most American’s health. The initially burning off of most their fat would rid their bodies of the chemical toxins that lodged in their fat cells over their lifetime. Livers, lymphatic system, etc. would all be drained and return to normal functioning. As we would be forced to live on roots, tubers, wild plants, tree bark, wild game, etc., after the processed food has been eaten, beneficial intestinal flora will be restored and the digestive system will be properly cleansed finally. All this will lead to healthier bodies and higher mental acuity. This might allow many Americans to see right through past deceptions fostered upon them by the government and media and have the energy to organize effectively against it.

    Natural survival instincts will be restored– women will now seek out mates who demonstrate good survivability– keen intellect, fighting prowess, loyalty, duty to family and social group,etc. They will no longer be looking for the most ostentatious male with the flashiest basketball sneakers or the meekest male who will buckle under to the female’s will. Narcissists, deadbeats, and psychopaths will be culled along with anyone who disrupts the new social order that requires cooperation to survive.

    1. There is no hunting season for porcupines. When this is changed, it will be the signal that a mass starvation is being prepared.

    2. On the topic of selecting a good mate– every time I see Chelsea Hubble Clinton, I can’t help but think how angry she must be at her mother. Imagine marrying a handsome, intelligent, supremely charismatic guy who becomes the US President, but instead of bearing his child, as a healthy sense of natural selection would dictate, you get yourself impregnated by his homely, half-wit, hillbilly best friend who looks like he could have been an extra in the movie Deliverance?

      Poor Chelsea. The spitting image of her biological father Webster Hubble. And Bill Clinton’s real seed goes into a drug addicted prostitute and produces a son who grows up in the ghetto and is denied a proper education. Despite the bleak information regarding IG Farbensanto, it is hard not to see the world as one big comedy show.

      1. I was wondering when you’d come back to Chelsea.. I was missing it.. 🙂
        I’ve just tried to show my wife the truth.. even looking at this.. http://images.gawker.com/mpbsrp7z2rwim47iqziq/c_scale,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800.jpg she’s humming and hawwing on the sofa… she’ll come around..

        Loved the women looking for real mates thing.. The Tavistock plan is working perfectly. Pron everywhere and one-night-stand apps assuring human relations have fallen to the same sewer cesspit as our culture and (koff) high art….

    3. VB, I love your writing so much, I smile and laugh when I feel like crying, it gives me hope.

  5. Engineered famine/disease to go along with that “really good job on vaccines”, Western “medicine”, common core, fiat money, ownership of all water rights/resources, and our only remaining exports “War/terror” and gas guzzling automobiles.
    Nothing to see here, move along…

  6. Arggg!! No.. I cannot express how evil these people are . . .
    This LITERALLY (for me) is the Garden of Eden all over again..
    “you see that plant over there.. ITS MINE and you’re not allowed to use it.”
    How DARE they presume ownership of NATURE. It belongs to MY CHILDREN you evil Nazi offshoot genecist..Not you and your shareholders.
    How can it be ILLEGAL to grow plants like your ancestors have since at least 10 000 years ago. Where does their arrogance and presumption come from??
    A legacy from Bayer when they used to order human females as lots, in order to test chemicals on them?? If it hadnt been for the Americans greed for weapons and Paperclip, I’m sure Bayer would have been burned to the ground for being the Cesspit of Evil that it is.

    . Organic foods still use pesticides.. Practise STILL needs to change – dont be fooled by that ‘bio’ label.

        1. probably stealing all the non GMO seeds from Africa and sending them to his Artic Superman Style Fotress at Svalbard..

          African Farmers asking their own governement to BAN GMO grains..
          .. Ok go here and click on ‘petitions’ I think that every single one of them is dedicated to ousting GMO and Gysophate from the agricultural world..
          http://acbio.org.za/activist/

          1. I spoke to one of my African collegues. Who said that when he was working on a Banana plantation in Africa, the plantation owners were told by the buyers.. (so super markets, etc) that if they didnt use Roundup, then they wouldnt buy their bananas… so irrespective of any laws the governement puts into place, they still try to find ways to pressure their product on to the market.

            They are the Drug Pushers of the Agriculture world.. go all over the world forcing their poison onto us.
