The following is an excerpt.

With headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri, and multiple locations on all five continents, Monsanto “has spread its seed.” Company sales in Latin America increased 21 percent to $2.9 billion in the three months ending November 30 of last year, and its share rose 40 cents a share compared to the same quarter the year before.

Nothing wrong with making money, right? It’s all wrong if money is made on behalf of people’s health and safety, the devastation of the environment and the destruction of local farming with disloyal manipulation of the justice systembribing governing agencies, and lobbying government officers to advance their agenda.
