Capitalism is destroying Africa.

There is absolutely nothing worse than genetically modified food being imported into Africa. Read this. Let me break it down simply:

1. GE corn grows only once. The seed of the offspring do not grow.
2. If a country that has a famine accepts this type of corn, and plants it, then in the next year, they once again will have to buy corn, since their offspring will not grow.
3. Since it is a famine in any case, the country is poor, and will at some point not be able to afford the corn.
4. Mass starvation.

That is what is happened in Ethiopia. When Robert Mugabe refused to accept GE food from the US, unless it was ground, he was decried by half witted geeks all over the world as being racist. Actually, he made a very wise desision, and I am glad he made it.
