A policy of non-intervention

Any form of control is contrary to nature.

Control is a human delusion that loves to force everything into a state contrary to its nature, and often into an artificial state of stagnation.  Everything loves to move and change, whilst following a path based upon its internal nature or design.  The example of control and manipulation of food crops through genetic and chemical intervention by corporates such as Monsanto has a track record of producing long-term negative outcomes both in the environment and in the communities it impacts.

Fox hunting is an emotional issue in the UK with the Government about to vote on a measure next week which effectively legalises hunting foxes with dozens of hounds.  Fox hunting is a national sport of the wealthier section of British society which divides those living in the countryside who favour it against those who live in the urban areas who are against it.

I and my business has a non-intervention policy, which means I will not force my will upon society or the environment, since this is contrary to living in harmony with nature.  I can put on public record to a certain politician who will vote in favour of fox-hunting next week that I will blacklist them from doing business with me if they do vote to hunt foxes.  Whilst this action will probably have little impact upon how the politician will vote, my little action is in harmony with nature by simply removing any potential support from an individual without trying to control anyone or anything.

The growing threat of Monsanto

In my opinion Monsanto is a serious threat to humanity and the environment.

This image is what I associate with Mosanto.

One word that I keep hearing about with growing alarm is Monsanto.  People say that climate change, North Korea or al-Qaeda is a great threat to humanity, but few seem to associate a corporate agricultural giant as a threat.

Currently a small farmer in the USA is fighting Monsanto in the US courts involving patents on seeds, which has alarming consequences over food supply and genetic diversity.

I could rant and rave about Monsanto, but I shall keep this short and sweet. I recommend using search engines to explore what this Monsanto has been up to around the world, it may alarm you as it does me.
