The hidden agenda of genetic manipulation
By Arun Shrivastava

Genetically Modified (GM) food is definitely not what it appears to be.

Following is a review of F. William Engdahl’s new book Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation:

The last three or four years have seen a number of books, documentaries and articles on the dangers of Genetically Modified (GM) seeds. Majority has focused on adverse health and environmental impact; almost none on the geo-politics of GM seeds, and particularly seeds as a weapon of mass destruction. Engdahl has addressed this issue but the crop seed is one of the many “Seeds of Destruction” in this book.

Engdahl carefully documents how the intellectual foundations of ‘eugenics,’ mass culling of the sick, colored, and otherwise disposable races, were actually first established, and even legally approved, in the United States. Eugenics research was financially supported by the Rockefeller and other elite families and first tested on Jews under Nazi Germany.

It is purely by chance that world’s poorest nations also happen to be best endowed with natural resources. These regions are also the ones with growing population. The fear among European ruling families, increasingly, integrating with economic and military might of the United States, was that if the poor nations became developed, the abundant natural resources, especially oil, gas, and strategic minerals and metals, may become scarcer for the white population. That situation was unacceptable to the white ruling elite.

The central question that dominated the minds of the ruling clique was population reduction in resource rich countries but the question was how to engineer mass culling all over the world without generating powerful backlash as it was bound to happen. When the U.S. oil reserves peaked in 1972 and it became a net oil importer, the situation became alarming and the agenda took the centre stage. Kissinger, one of the key strategists of Nixon, nurtured by the Rockefellers, prepared what is known as National Security Study Memo (NSSM#200), in which he elaborated his plan for population reduction. In this Memo he specifically targets thirteen countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Turkey, Thailand, and the Philippines.

The weapon to be used was food; even if there was a famine food would be used to leverage population reduction. Kissinger is on record for stating, “Control oil, you control nations; control food and you control the people.” How a small group of key people transformed the elitist philosophy, of controlling food to control people, into realistic operational possibility within a short time is the backdrop of Engdahl’s book, the central theme running from the beginning till the end with the Rockefellers and Kissinger, among others, as the key dramatis personae.

He describes how the Rockefellers guided the U.S. agriculture policy, used their powerful tax-free foundations worldwide to train an army of bright young scientists in hitherto unknown field of microbiology. He traces how the field of Eugenics was renamed “genetics” to make it more acceptable and also to hide the real purpose. Through incremental strategic adjustments within a handful of chemical, food and seed corporations, ably supported by the key persons in key departments of the U.S. Government, behemoths were created that could re-write the regulatory framework in nearly every country. And these seeds of destruction of carefully constructed regulatory framework — to protect the environment and human health — were sown back in the 1920s.

Pause to think: a normal healthy person can at the most go without food for perhaps seven days but it takes a full season, say around four months, for a seed to grow into food crop. Just five agri-biz corporations, all U.S. based (Cargill, Bunge, Archer Daniels, et al), control global grain trade, and just five control global trade in seeds. Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, DuPont, and Dow Chemicals control genetically engineered seeds. While these powerful oligopolies were being knocked into place, anti-trust laws were diluted to exempt these firms. Engdahl writes, “It was not surprising that the Pentagon’s National Defense University, on the eve of the 2003 Iraq War, issued a paper declaring: ‘Agribiz is to the United States what oil is to the Middle East.’ Agribusiness had become a strategic weapon in the arsenal of the world’s only superpower.” (page 143)

The “Green Revolution” was part of the Rockefeller agenda to destroy seed diversity and push oil and gas based agriculture inputs in which Rockefeller’s had main interest. Destruction of seed diversity and dependence on proprietary hybrids was the first step in food control. (See my notes, Box 1)

It is true that initially Green Revolution technologies led to spurt in farm productivity but at a huge cost of destruction of farmlands, bio-diversity, poisoned aquifers and progressively poor health of the people and was the true agenda of ‘the proponents of Green Revolution.’

The real impetus came with the technological possibility of gene splicing and insertion of specific traits into unrelated species. Life forms could be altered. But until 1979, the U.S. Government had steadfastly refused to grant patent on life form. That was changed

[my comment: helped much by a favorable judgment in the U.S. Supreme Court granting patent protection to oil eating bacteria developed by Dr Ananda Chakraborty]. Life forms could now be patented. To ensure that the world surrendered to the patent regime of the seeds corporations, the World Trade Organization was knocked into shape. How it conducted business was nobody’s business, but it forced the world to accept intellectual property right of these corporations. There is opposition but these firms are too determined as Engdahl describes.

“The clear strategy of Monsanto, Dow, DuPont and the Washington Government backing them was to introduce the GMO seeds in every corner of the globe, with priority on defenseless. African and developing countries,” write Engdahl (page 270). However, Engdahl also describes how U.S. and Canadian farmlands came under GMOs. It was suspected that GMO could pose serious threat to human and animal health and the environment, yet efforts at independent biosafety assessment were discontinued. Scientists carrying out honest studies were vilified. Reputed scientific establishments were silenced or made to toe the line that was supportive of the Rockefeller’s food control and mass culling agenda. The destruction of the credibility of scientific institution is yet another seed of destruction in Engdahl’s book.

Engdahl cites the example of a German farmer Gottfried Glockner’s experience with GM corn. Glockner planted Bt176 event of Syngenta essentially as feed for his cows. Being a scientist, he started with 10% GM feed and gradually increased the proportion, carefully noting milk yield and any side effects. Nothing much happened in the first three years but when he increased the feed to 100% GM feed, his animals “were having gluey-white feaces and violent diarrhea” and “milk contained blood.” Eventually all his seventy cows died. Prof Angelika Hilbeck of Swiss Federal Institute of Technology found from Glockner’s Bt 176 corn samples Bt toxins were present “in active form and extremely stable.” The cows died of high dose of toxins. Not if, but when human food is 100% contaminated should be a sobering thought.

In the U.S. unlabelled GM foods were introduced in 1993 and that 70% of the supermarket foods contain GMOs in varying proportions in what should rightly be called world’s largest biological experiment on humans. While Engdahl has clearly stated that the thrust of U.S. Government and the agi-biz is control over food especially in the third world, he has left it to the readers to deduce that American and European citizens are also target of that grand agenda. And there are more lethal weapons in the arsenal: Terminator seeds, Traitor seeds, and the ability to destroy small independent farmers at will in any part of the world, and these are powerfully presented in the book. Engdahl provides hard evidences for these seeds of final destruction and utter decimation of world civilizations as we have known.

It is a complex but highly readable book. It is divided into five parts, each containing two to four short chapters. The first part deals with the political maneuverings to ensure support to

He does not offer any solution; he can’t because it is up to the rest of the world, including Europeans and Americans, to wake up and take on these criminals head on. An essential read for anyone who eats and thinks.

  1. Good read .. a bit long winded but I am a speed reader.. GMO crops are a huge threat to our very existence.

  2. I believe that this corporate control of our food supply is the single biggest threat humanity has ever faced. I will do my best to shout it from the rooftops. Thanks for commenting.

  3. Even some of the so called natural foods found in stores contain GM products.
    You can't tell the players without a scorecard.

    In my area a person who would want to grow a non-hybrid, non GM corn crop and save seed risks contamination because most farmers have fallen for the GM Round-Up ready scam.

  4. The jest of this article is a claim that GM food is a conspiracy to eliminate people of color from the world by elitist white European families for the purposes of controlling resources. Having heard this conspiracy before, I recently came across a color-coded world map showing the demographics of the population growth of various countries based on per capita child birth. The color red represented the highest birth rates, and the only place in the world you could find the color red was coaster Rica, and almost all of Africa. The countries with the color blue showing the lowest birth rates were all the industrialized countries of the world particularly the United States and Western Europe. So why this babbling about a racist conspiracy by European white elites the victim of GM foods if there is such are European people themselves?

  5. Failure to identify just who these elite are does not make this article any less relevant. Most writers won't speak out the whole truth. These sociopaths are equal opportunity haters.

  6. What the hay are "Traitor seeds"? And yes, Saladin, they do love us so very much. I have been tracking their seedling love for us for awhile now.

    I did not realize some of the history mentioned here but with the constant interaction between moguls of such as Monsanto and the White House of Shame, it is obvious. After all, the moment the Rumsfeld, clone of a high ranking nazi, made sure to push Aspartame through to legality within minutes of getting into the WH. It had already been damned by rank and file scientists.

    BTW, regarding eugenics/genics. I have a question to pose. Oh here we go with the antisemitic stuff again. Personally I believe there is great truth in the Nazi/Zionist theory. The Zionists have been breeding and breeding to create the perfect "Jewish" people for a very long time, almost perfectly equal to that of the Germans.

    Because I also know that these anti-human Zionists were also involved in WW2 on levels few people are aware of, and because most of the pioneers of the modern eugenics programme are/were Jewish, don'tcha think there is a good chance it is allllllllllllllll the same base group who just use any old nation they can to pursue the same goal? We know just how racist the Zionists are don't we?

    Chew on that one for awhile.

    Food is a huge issue you are right. However, they are pushing so many things at us at the moment, so heavily, I consider a few things of an equal caliber danger although they all effect food production. HAARP and weather and planetary manipulation are terrifying things as we have seen with the Asian tsunami, Haiti, the American midwest, Russia, Pakistan, and other countries.

    I am sure Madman will have a ball with this post! LOL.

  7. Of all the methods used by these killers to delete us food is by far the most efficient since it will affect every single human being, including those still in the womb, on Earth. I have been following the money for 6 years and it always leads to the same place. Yes, they are racist in the extreme, but I think there is more to it than that. We may never know all the details, but we know enough to act, and we are running out of time. Quibbling over inane points is just wasting what little time we DO have. We can start by growing our own food, saving seeds, buying from local, organic producers and learning how to preserve for the future. These are actions in real time and set a good example for others to follow. People will be more likely to listen to you if you practice what you preach. I am in my 5th straight year of gardening. I don't have time to debate people like madman, I am looking for solutions. The problems have been clearly outlined, now, what do we do?
