KNOW GMO VLOG: First World Food Imperialists

Corporate control of the world’s food supply is an unlikely but at least valid concern, but pursued blindly without a review of the unintended consequences means we can, with the best of intentions, cause more damage than we ever sought to avoid.

Can we allow Africa to have access to the same tools we have in North America, without endorsing an imperialist corporate takeover of Africa?

If imperialism is forcing others to accept one’s culture, and if farmers want access to better seeds and pesticides and they are prevented from getting them by Western activists, doesn’t the activism meet the tests of modern day imperialism?

Healthy food, a healthy planet and success for farmers. In the end we all want the same things. Which only proves that the problem is really one of communication and understanding, not one made from an actual opposition of goals.
