I started watching this a few years ago and did some articles on technocrat. Yes indeedy scary, because in the last three years, they really are no closer to any sort of breakthrough, and it keeps spreading.

Just another example where a real threat is under budgeted and under appreciated, so that we can drop trillions on the war against some goatherders and bailing out billionaires bad gambling markers. Sometimes it is mind boggling what gets priority treatment around this planet.

the people from Monsanto starve if the wheat crop fails majorly - the Pakistani's don't want to give up a live sample in case it is patented.

Just awesome.

The only people from Monsanto who will starve will be rank-and-file workers who are just trying to make a living. The decision makers will never miss a meal, never feel a bit of discomfort.

All too true.

Can we at least put the decision makers at Monsanto against the wall come the revolution?

Not a chance. The only ones you'll be able to get your hands on, much less against the wall will be the aforementioned rank-and-file workers and lower-level managers. The decision makers will be safely ensconced on their tropical island well protected by hired guns.
