Let Them Eat (genetically engineered) Cake

About the food industry, not in a nice way

Plot thoughts

what if? just a slight exaggeration here –

what if mcdonald’s owned all the meat and potato processing plants in america, and what if they exerted control over all the ranchers and all the potato growers in america, and turned them into contractors, forcing them to grow a specific monsanto-owned genetically-modified potato, and a particular cloned cow, and this had the consequence of destroying genetic diversity in these two species? and what if it became against the law to raise beef on grass, and corn feedlots became the only legal way to prepare meat?

what if it became illegal to grow your own food, and there was a roundup of people with gardens, who were prosecuted for growing food without a license, and specifically, for growing seeds that had been patented by a chemical company?

what if there was a new law passed in congress to roll back the labelling requirements in foods? from that point forward, it would not be the public’s business to know what was in their food. also, this would lead to a further regulationn that all foods, processed and fresh, have flavor enhancers, spoilage retardants, anti-microbial additives, and antibiotics and growth hormones in meat and milk.
