Chemicals and GMO's are innocent until proven guilty in the US. Elsewhere, I'm thinking of France, they are guilty until proven innocent. Monsanto is free to poison the shit out of us and they do just that. Corporations are astoundingly greedy and unconscientious. I worked for an implantable manufacturer. They had a product that caused strokes and heart attacks in the European trials [everything is released first in Europe because the victims have less rights and much smaller awards in lawsuits]. Sixty percent of people who got said heart valve had strokes or heart attacks. So what did my employer do? They found ways to sell off the remaining stock of said heart valve via experimental programs wherein the recipients had already signed waivers, the VA in other words. I questioned one member of upper management with whom I was on friendly terms and she replied "we like to think that we do more good than harm". So they can do astoundingly horrific acts and rationalize it all. Shortly after that the implantable industry got the laws changed, not via congress but via a court, so that a lawsuit had to prove that a defective product does more harm than good, not just prove that it did some harm.
I'd really like to get to the heart of many matters in the US of A. Identify and track all psychopaths for openers. Don't even wait for the first crime. We have brain imaging equipment that can id a psychopath with very high accuracy. Tag them and track them and question them first every time a crime occurs anywhere near them. They do fifty percent of all serious crimes and I'm convinced that psychological ripples from psychopaths cause a lot of the other fifty percent. After that we could change the definition of what a corporation is as a person and include responsibility to people and the environment.
