I used to have some respect for this guy, but now I'm having serious second thoughts...

"Some of Monsanto's innovations and practices have been laudable (trying to tailor seed for successful germination, growth, and harvest in specific challenging climates)"
Not so laudable in India, for example.....
>"When India's seed economy was forced by the World Bank to become globalized in the late 1990s, economic conditions within the nation's agricultural sector almost immediately took a nosedive for the worst. Much of the common Indian seed stock turned from saveable heirloom varieties to patented, genetically-modified (GM) varieties that expire after a single use and require the application of expensive and cumbersome pesticides in order to grow, which plunged many Indian farmers into abject poverty. And nearly 25 years later, the devastating effects of this corporate takeover of Indian agriculture has resulted in countless suicides, 200,000 of which have occurred just in the past ten years."<Segment from..... http://www.naturalnews.com/030913_Monsanto_suicides.html (2011)

Doesn't look like Monsanto is on that flag.
Ooooh, I love that flag.
This flag represents the 'cause' of OWS movement IMO.
