Some people can get lost in the GMO debate all the while sidestepping the primary issue at hand. Regardless if GMOs are entirely safe or dangerously carcinogenic one thing is for sure, the mega bio-tech corporations that produce and patent these transgenic seeds would not have grown to colossal sizes without the massive aid and sovereign immunity that “government” has ensured through it’s status as monopoly on violence. Remove the gun in the room and allow Monsanto, DuPont, and Syngenta to market their products to the people. I am confident that the GMO market would immediately collapse simply based on the fact that many people support cheap local farmer’s market food over an expensive dead product synthetically made in a laboratory.
When “government” ceases its coercive influence the massive farm subsidies will also dry up. This will reveal the true hidden cost of transgenic food, terminator seeds, monoculture farming, and the over-use of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides. It is quite illogical for GMO or pesticide laden food to be so much cheaper than organic whole food that is absent such harsh intervention. The chief reasons for this price distortion is the direct “government” subsidization of the former through extorted taxpayer funds and the encumbering effects of requiring organic farmers to fill out reams of paperwork and pay various fees which serve no useful function but to slowly strangulate them to death by means of regulation. Therefore the taxpayer ultimately pays thrice, first by means of increased taxes, second by means of more expensive healthy food, and third by means of the medical expenses that are the direct result of eating such dangerous transgenic food. Dispel the myth of Statism and you will immediately be liberating food, which has been held hostage for decades. Eat for the body you want, not the body you have!
