>>61763554 Not the person you asked, but what bothers me the most among the things I've heard is their monopoly strategy. Your article doesn't mention that at all. Monsanto sells its own seeds to farmers, especially in poor countries, only telling them about the benefits they'd get from them — but then the farmers can't go back to conventional agriculture or buy their seeds anywhere else, and they can't buy the seeds either, they're forced to keep buying from Monsanto. If they can no longer afford them, well... they're fucked.
About how safe GMOs themselves are, honestly I don't know what to believe. I'm not opposed to the idea of GMOs, but I've heard everything and its opposite concerning safety — so I try to avoid them, just to be on the safe side. But monopolies are almost never a good thing — with no competition, they control everything and can pretty much do whatever the hell they want. They're big enough to afford that too. They have way too much power.
>>61763812 >BRITAIN IMPORTED MILLIONS OF UNSKILLED LABOURERS FROM THE COLONIES OR THAT KIND OF WORK AND LOOK WHAT A HUGE SUCCESS THAT WAS! THE HATRED IS BARELY RESTRAINED INTO THE OCCASSIONAL RIOT. I DON’T LIKE BEING IN A PLACE WITH SUCH AN ATMOSPHERE. EVEN GERMANY, THE FORMER RICHEST COUNTRY IN WESTERN EUROPA (sic) SEEMS TO BE TANGIBLY FALLING TO BITS. IT IS NO LONGER AS CLEAN AND AS WELL ORGANISED AS I REMEMBER FROM, SAY, 10 YEARS AGO. IT HAS BEEN FLOODED BY THOSE WHO WANT BUT, WITH LITTLE TO GIVE! >THE WORLD SEEMS TO BE SO FULL OF SO MANY DANGERS THAT IT’S HARD TO SINGLE ANY PARTICULAR ONES OUT. CERTAINLY THE MOST OBVIOUS THAT SPRING TO MIND ARE THE GROWTHS IN ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM AND OUT OF CONTROL BREEDING. EVEN IN EUROPA, WITH ZERO POPULATION GROWTH IN MANY COUNTRIES, THOSE WHO ARE DOING THE BREEDING APPEAR TO ME, AND I THINK MANY OTHERS, TO BE OF DUBIOUS CHARACTER. THEY FUCK, THEY HAVE KIDS AND THAT IS ALL THEY DO! >As Dutch, British and French explorers literally put this Great Southern Land on the map it would be ridiculous to say that modern day Australia is anything other than a grand – and successful – outpost of Euro-colonialism and, more specifically Anglo-Celt British colonialism. It’s a fact of life like the Euro-colonization of the Americas etc. If it was an outpost of, let’s say, Iranian or Zimbabwean colonialism would so many people still be so desperately trying to get into Australia by any means necessary, legal or otherwise? It’s doubtful. Thank the Gods for Euro-colonialism! it's ok you can still like them
Depends. I guess we're talking about extreme cases here, since people usually don't hear or care about artists' mainstream political views.
If their views aren't evident in their music, it might affect whether I buy their releases or not but I will keep enjoying their music anyway. I have no qualms listening to Burzum.
If they really try to shove their views in listeners' faces, then yeah, it can bother me a bit. Gangsta rap is pretty obnoxious in that regard, the way it glorifies mindless violence, misogyny and boasting.
>>61763168 It depends on the situation. I can listen to "highly political" musicians like The Knife because their lyrics are almost always either cryptic or hard to hear because of Karin's accent. Otherwise...it's dodgy.
