By now, many have heard of this pro-GMO propaganda film [“Food Evolution”] and the devious editing tactics they used when they refused to allow full statements in the film from various people who have expressed a variety of concerns about GMOs over the years. This fact alone should have been a red flag to major media outlets who have once again mistaken corporate propaganda for science, who have once again gulped down the Kool-Aid from the pro-GMO cultists. 2017 may very well be referred to as the “GMO Year of Propaganda.” Jon Woodhouse’s post is excellent.

“‘Science is science,’ declared my college biology professor, alluding to its own rigorous standards, openness, and integrity. Today, my response would be ‘not quite.’ For in the autocratic, commercially driven hands of multinational corporations, ‘science’ becomes the instrument of an overall business plan that results in serious corruptions of scientific attitude, method, and peer-reviewed accountability. This confidential, proprietary ‘corporate science’ closes off Alfred North Whitehead’s definition of science as ‘keeping options open for revision.’ It becomes … the central chattel in a comprehensive business strategy to corporatize global agriculture. This is accomplished through a remarkable matrix of controls and public subsidies that takes monopolizing corporate behavior and its wildcat offshoots to historically unforeseen depths of danger to people and planet.”  – Ralph Nader, forward, “The GMO Deception,” ed. S. Krimsky & J. Gruber (2014)

no-gmo21“Calm, careful, potentially revolutionary, “Food Evolution” is an iconoclastic documentary on a hot-button topic,” begins a laudatory Los Angeles Times review of a new pro-GMO doc. “Persuasive rather than polemical, it’s the unusual issue film that deals in counterintuitive reason rather than barely controlled hysteria.”
