    Having writen extensively on Monsanto's evil growing monopoly on food supplies, who, names, runs it?

    How would you suggest breaking up said growing monopoly?  Again, who exactly are we talking about here?  How do you suggest getting the FDA to help, not hurt, by irradiating our food?  Do you even think we the people have a chance to stop this?  If not, what are the best ways to get non engineered seeds?  From where?  Can you include links please.  Lastly, and most importantly, as this has to be a corner stone for the global domination of the NWO, how do you propose stopping them?  Please break it down.  I direct the questions to you as you have extensively researched these related issues.

    Well, I'm pretty disappointed in the automated "your answer is too effing long for an answer to this question, Sir - either smoke it or make a hub out of it."

    But that's what it told me....so I put my "too effing long an answer for here" thing on a comment on one of your hubs :-/

    It's true - I can be long winded.

    Long story short - without Roundup herbicide - Monsanto will be bankrupt in no time at all.  In fact, Roundup is the only product that keeps Monsanto profitable at all!

    This is what's going to undermine Monsanto:
    * Organic farms and Community Sustained Agriculture (CSAs) are thriving and spreading. They use their own sources for seeds.
    * There's a worldwide movement to grow your own food or grow community gardens locally. Especially in cities, there are urban gardens springing up all over the place.
    *People discover pretty quickly that Monsanto's plants and seeds don't reproduce, so they ask around and get some from local farmers and nurseries.
    * I know of an urban garden locally that is collecting and selling seeds from its own organic produce. (http://urbanhomestead.org/contact)
    * And there are organizations in different parts of the world (a huge one in one of the Scandinavian countries) that are collecting and saving heirloom seeds of all types. Just look up "heirloom seed collection" online and you'll let lots of responses.

    Poetvix,

    "Current members of the board of directors of Monsanto are: David L. Chicoine president of South Dakota State University, Hugh Grant, the president and CEO of Monsanto, Arthur H. Harper, managing partner of GenNx360 Capital Partners, Gwendolyn S. King, president of Podium Prose (a speakers bureau), Laura K. Ipsen, senior VP and general manager of Connected Energy Networks at Cisco Systems, Inc., C. Steven McMillan, the former chairman and CEO of Sara Lee Corporation, William U. Parfet, chief executive officer of MPI Research Inc., Janice L. Fields, president of McDonald’s USA, George H. Poste, chief executive of Health Technology Networks, Jon R. Moeller, chief financial officer of The Procter & Gamble Company,[28] and George H. Poste, PhD, DVM, chief executive of Health Technology Networks.[29]

    Former Monsanto employees currently hold positions in US government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Supreme Court. These include Clarence Thomas, Michael R. Taylor, Ann Veneman, Linda Fisher, Michael Friedman, William D. Ruckelshaus, and Mickey Kantor.[30] Linda Fisher has been back and forth between positions at Monsanto and the EPA.[30]" (Wikipedia).

    The way to fix the problem of Monsanto (and the other corporate oligopolies) rests in their fuel source, their life-blood: money. If we stop buying their products, they'll asphyxiate. The answer is mass-boycott.

    Thanks for the question,

    Dan
