EU Moves To Control All Plants

Once you think you have seen/heard it all, the statist-collectivists out do themselves. They have now replaced God (in their own warped minds at least). — jtl, 419

The European Union is considering a law that regulates all plants by placing immediate restrictions on vegetables and woodland trees and laying the groundwork to restrict all other plant species in the future.

The psychopathic elites at the EU understand that if they control the food supply, they control the population. The Plant Reproductive Material Law makes it illegal to grow, reproduce or trade any vegetable seed or tree that has not been tested by the newly created EU Plant Variety Agency, which will be tasked with making a listing of “approved plants.”

Following an upheaval by hundreds of thousands of people protesting the possibility of such an Orwellian control agency deciding what foods are approved and making criminals out of farmers who want to use their own seed, the law was amended to:

  • “Permit” home gardeners to swap “unapproved seed” without breaking the law.
  • Allow individuals and small organizations (with fewer than 10 employees) to grow and sell “unapproved seeds.”
  • Establish seedbanks that can grow “unapproved seeds” without breaking the law.

Even with these minor changes it’s still an egregious assault on liberty. Under a similar law, rather than being considered one of the United States’ greatest scientists, George Washington Carver would have been a common criminal and enemy of the state.

The law is designed to give Big Farm organizations like Monsanto, DuPont and and Archer Daniels Midland absolute authority over seeds, limiting the availability of sustainable heirloom seeds and forcing consumers to use genetically modified seeds. I have pointed out how well that is working here, here, here and here.

Understand that if this becomes law in the EU, it’s only a matter of time before the collectivists in the United States begin a similar move here.

About Ranch Managers

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.

    I started Organic Dairy Farming in Vermont in 1950. Won awards over hundreds of chemical farmers in 1958. Was snubbed by Agriculture Advisers because I did not accept ther promoting of the chemicals. Wrote a book Learned by the Fencepost with my story as I was encouraged to do. Published in 2011 and is on Amazon and Kindle by typing title on Google for review. I also have an article about Monsanto. Monsanto is the Monster of our Unhealthy Food Production. I go back to the super phosphate made with sulfuric acid and never used anymore chemicals after i notice my earthworms were killed when hit with acid. I visulized the microrganisms being burned as well breaking down our Organic matter for plant food. I can send te story of my view of Monsanto swindling the Farmers starting n the 1940′s.
