I wrote earlier about how the GMO labeling campaign is seeking a worthy goal, but how we need to prepare for it to be derailed by the criminal system. The likely real purpose of the campaign is therefore to teach the public about GMOs and about how ”representative” government doesn’t work, to help organize a real food sovereignty movement, and to provide an exercise in political participation. (My acronym for this is POE, participate-organize-educate.)
Although the labeling campaign is trucking along in California, the most critical battlefield, we’re already seeing it gutted in other places. In Vermont, a rather modest bill had the overwhelming public and legislature support, but was gutted in committee while the governor promised a veto. The gutting was alleged to be in response to a threatened Monsanto lawsuit, but of course this was just a pretext. In Connecticut, a labeling bill was also gutted in committee, to the point that its original sponsor and Right to Know CT have withdrawn their support. (This too was about the fraudulent fear of a lawsuit. They provided an insight into how the elites think, as they admitted that according to their own lying premise, ”their main duty was to protect the welfare of the state”. According to the civics textbooks the state is supposed to seek the welfare of the people, not of itself at the expense of the people. But like I said they really weren’t concerned with the welfare of anyone but Monsanto.) Meanwhile in Oahu the city council simply voted labeling down.
Together these provide an object lesson in the basic fraud of “representative democracy”. On its face, any system which sees itself as a gatekeeper against such a simple, common sense practice as transparency in labeling is a radically anti-democratic system. Not to mention the overwhelming evidence by now that GMOs do in fact comprise a severe health danger. Not only is any person entitled to know if she’s eating them, but indeed any reasonable person would want to know.
This is the latest and one of the greatest examples of the failure and fraud of representative government. In Vermont and Connecticut bills were introduced in the legislature. We’ll see if the initiative in California does any better, but there too we can expect the system to do anything it can to thwart the will of the people.
