Monsanto Sues Germany to Force GMO Food
By amicus curiae
Monsanto goes too far! The European battle to reject genetically engineered organisms will feel the full wealth and hubris of one the world's largest biotechnlogy firms - to the detriment of food freedom.

Monsanto is now suing the German government (and, by that, the people) to force them to grow their GM Corn. Monsanto files suit against Germany over GM ban:
Makes trying to refuse those sprouts at dinner seem familiar? Several other intelligent EU countries have reservations and have refused to grow these products that are inefficient, low producing, chemically ruinous, fertilizer intensive, UN-tested for toxicological harm to humans, and dubious safety for animals. This is a good indicator that not ALL the world has been fooled by Monsanto.
Some American growers are also moving away, after they have had land become so Roundup resistant they can no longer farm it! See 'Superweed' explosion threatens Monsanto heartlands:
I do hope that Germany can not only win, but by doing so, set a precedent the rest of the world to follow. JUST SAY NO!! AND MEAN IT!
The Concise Maquarie Dictionary defines Megalomania as:
I personally think a "form of mental alienation" is the correct term to sum up this news. The level of hubris that must exist for a corporation to attempt to force us to grow anything we do not want to grow, or eat anything we think is unsafe. Leave us to farm in peace without being harassed by GMO-contamination of our crops, animals, honey... whatever it is we produce.
This is a company forcing a government and a people to accept a product they do not want. Somebody certainly has a delusional issue, and it is NOT those who refuse to accept genetically altered food.
