What Peter Brabeck CEO of Nestle thinks about your right to water

“Water is of course the most important raw material we have today in the world. It’s a question of whether we should privatise the normal water supply for the population. And there are two different opinions on the matter. The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. This means that as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution. And the other view says that water is a foodstuff like any other, and like any other foodstuff it should have a market value. Personally I believe it’s better to give foodstuff a value so that we’re all aware that it has its price, and then that one should take specific measures for the part of the population that has no access to this water, and there are many different possibilities there. I’m still of the opinion that the biggest social responsibility of any CEO is to maintain and ensure the successful and profitable future of his enterprise.”

Note: So everything we need for a fulfilling and healthy life must be monetized? Even if we appreciate the effort in managing our common resources it does NOT mean profit-seeking is implied.

Monstanto vs the world – How we will win the food war

http://rinf.com/alt-news/sicence-technology/monstanto-vs-the-world-how-we-will-win-the-food-war/

The big idea that industrial producers in the food system want you to believe is that only they can produce enough for the future population (Peekhaus 2010). Thus non-industrial systems of farming, such as all those which use agroecological methods, or SRI, or are localised and family-oriented, or which use organic methods, or non-GMO seeds, cannot feed the world.

Note: The defunct and self serving solution of Bill Gates et al is more psyhcopathic corporatism of the food supply.

Monsanto’s dirty tricks explained

Are all of the major polling organizations in the country simply using incorrect statistical algorithms? Obviously, the answer instead lies in the dirty tricks (and even the mainstream media is now calling them out as such) used by mega biotech companies like Monsanto.

Outside of deeply manipulating vote counts, pro-GMO groups backed by Monsanto are already playing dirty and spreading what amounts to complete misinformation into the public spotlight. And they’re doing it with millions in funding. Checkout the details of who exactly is pumping cash into efforts to defeat your ability to know what you’re eating:

Monsanto – $7,100,500
DuPont – $4,900,000
Pepsi – $2,145,400
Bayer – $2,000,000
Dow – $2,000,000
BASF – $2,000,000
Syngenta – $2,000,000

General Mills – $1,135,000
ConAgra – $1,077,000
Kellogg’s – $790,000

And here’s a list of companies that have supported Prop 37:
Mercola.com – $1,115,000
