Monsantopoly – A game pitting farmer against farmer that only Monsanto can win!

By Barbara H. Peterson

Farm Wars

Recently Natural News put out an article titled “Court rules organic farmers can sue conventional, GMO farmers whose pesticides ‘trespass’ and contaminate their fields” The article puts forth the supposition that this is a good thing, and somehow a victory by organics over Monsanto:

The stunning victories of both the Johnson’s and Jacob’s Farm / Del Cobo against their chemical-polluting neighbors is huge, in that it represents a new set legal precedent for holding conventional, factory farming operations responsible for the damage their systems cause to other farms. And with this new precedent set, many more organic farmers, for instance, can now begin suing GMO farmers for both chemical and genetic pollution that drifts onto their farms.

A stunning victory? I don’t think so. In fact, I believe that this is a set-up, and not a precedent at all, but a planned maneuver by a wily and unscrupulous government agency and Monsanto. The fact that GMOs are acknowledged as a contaminant is good. However, let’s take a closer look at just what is really going on behind the scenes, and why I believe this is a divide and conquer strategy put in play to further erode our agricultural base, and drive family farms out of business.
