More complex than this.  Should consumers have the right to know what they are eating?  Or should companies have the right to TELL consumers what they are NOT eating (not GMO, no RGBH in milk, etc).  Monsanto says no, and continues to use the force of government to do this.

As for planting whatever you want, again, not really.  Farmers buying seed in bulk from distributors are getting sued by Monsanto (this is at the supreme court now - was it resolved?) because a fraction of the seeds are what they consider their intellectual property and cannot be "replanted".  You have to buy new seeds from them.

Market forces, better information, and a better legal system would surely improve the situation, but in the mean time Monsanto is buying out the government to prevent this day from ever even coming within sight.  We should work towards this end, but in the mean time, there are practical tools available to us.

When did the Ron Paul crowed become eco-nazis and totally abandon libertarian principals and positions? Everyone should have the right to plant whatever they want without approval from the hallucinated authority known as government. What happened to ridding our selves of the FDA, USDA, and ending IP laws so market forces can regulate crap companies out of existence?

If the tact is going to be to abandon principals and randomly sick government on people based on nazi like demagoguery of certain groups rather than the ethics of specific behaviors, then I will bid you adieu.

I totally agree with you Guy. This is outrageous and our government is continuing to fail us, lie after lie.
