These days, Monsanto is doing something else to change the world of tomorrow; it involves soybeans, genetics, lawyers and massive control of our farming industry. Not too happy about it. There is some hope tho. Consumers do vote with their wallets.
It’s been almost a decade since I read Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation. Things haven’t gotten better.
The House of the Future was demolished in 1967. In first attempts, the wrecking ball simply bounced off its plastic surface.
