This airing we discuss some recent developments and mergers in the worlds of Genetically Modified Organisms and the Military Industrial Complex. In an incredible victory for plaintiff Dwayne Johnson, a San Francisco jury just found agrochemical and seed giant Monsanto guilty of failing to adequately warn that its products Roundup and Ranger may cause cancer when used in a reasonable and expectable manner. On August 10th, 2018, the San Francisco jury awarded Johnson $289.2 million dollars in economic and non-economic damages, which is a landmark decision for thousands of others who are suing Monsanto for the same reasons. The case has revealed a number of Monsanto internal documents which demonstrate that the corporation was aware of both insufficient research into the link between glyphosate (Roundup) and cancer, and that it also knew the link was likely provable. Weaponized biotechnology is all the rage for military investors these days. The chain reaction, domino effect ever present in nature is all too often overlooked, underestimated or outright disregarded through sheer arrogance, blatant ignorance and untethered greed. Long-term sustainability of the greater natural environment as a whole must be and remain of the utmost importance to all those considering working in or associating with such fields of research. We hear reports that the DOD has been regulating these fields of research. We cite comparisons within other subject areas in terms of sustainability. The current economic, consumer/obsolescence censorship, demographic and cultural situations are likewise addressed. We discuss a few topics relating to the current threats to our First Amendment rights including Freedom Of Speech and Freedom Of Assembly. Some results of the psychological operations which occurred in the forms of the Alex Jones banning incident and the rallies this past August 12th prove additionally suspect with regard to timing and social media censorship concerns. We take a call from Steven W. during the second hour and hear his thoughts and comments on a number of these topics.
