GMO is forced with corruption.(2012) US to Start ‘Trade Wars’ with Nations Opposed to GMO The United States is threatening nations who oppose GMO with military-style trade wars, according to information obtained and released by the organization WikiLeaks. Nations which have moved to ban GMO, were requested to be ‘penalized’. Source: Natural Society WikiLeaks: US targets opponents of GM crops: "Eat GMOs! or We'll Cause Pain" The cables show US diplomats working directly for GM companies such as Monsanto and Bayer.
Opponents of GMO punished with "retaliation and pain".
🇭🇺 Hungary was punished economically for banning GMO. The country had to throw out the International Monetary Fund (IMF) along with GMO to get rid of it!(2012) Hungary Throws Out GMO AND the IMF Hungary's PM Victor Orbán had thrown GMO giant Monsanto out of the country, going as far as to plow under 1000 acres of land. It's remarkably hard to find sources on this, ironically. It’s even harder, even more ironically, to find anything that mentions the Wikileaks report on the connections between the US government and the GMO industry and the sanctions imposed on Hungary through the IMF.

🇱🇰 Sri Lanka introduced a GMO ban that supposedly caused an economic collapse of the country in 2021, after which the International Monetary Fund (IMF), suspiciously, was the 'only option' with a $2.9 billion USD bailout.(2023) GMO corruption case: 🇱🇰 Sri Lanka's 2021 'anti-GMO hysteria' and organic farming disaster The irony of ironies. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), an institution which across the globe has been acknowledged as anti-people, elitist and responsible for increasing poverty, misery and destitution across dozens of countries, is now being seen as the only saviour for Sri Lanka.

Another example is the mounting cases of corruption related to deregulation of so called 'new GMOs' or GMO 2.0.GMO 2.0 deregulation corruption The president of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in 🇨🇦 Candada was forced to resign over corruption to deregulate new GMO 2.0. Inf'OGM, a critical GMO watchdog in 🇫🇷 France, reported about GMO 2.0 corruption in France. An investigation by Friends of the Earth Europe revealed that the 🇪🇺 European Commission’s official proposal’s to deregulate new GMOs (NGTs) has been ghostwritten by the GMO industry. Many more corruption cases... An overview.
Another example are attacks on opponents of GMO. The severity of the attacks varies from intimidation and threats to physical attacks.An overview of attacks on opponents of GMO Violent attack at home in 🇫🇷 France. Violent eviction from home during Christmas in 🇮🇳 India. Threatened and intimidated by the Government in 🇲🇽 Mexico. Violent attack on professor in 🇦🇷 Argentina. Vandalism and threats in the 🇺🇸 US. Many more cases... An overview.
The cited corruption cases are just a tip of the veil.
Anti-GMO campaign in 🇳🇬 Nigeria - Corruption?
Would real anti-GMO activists shout out loud "No Monsanto, we do not want your bio tech!"? Images of protestors with such messages are propagated globally as the paragon of GMO opposition.
The following example shows how a global marketing machine can use anti-GMO opposition to their advantage.
A group of US and European activists entered Nigeria and propagated presumable 'false claims' that GMO causes cancer and infertility. Subsequently, scientists globally as a knight on a white horse came into action and used public channels to show scientifically that the claims are false, successfully curbing opposition to GMO on the basis of human health and food safety arguments.
As a knight on a white horse… (2022) How scientists beat back anti-GMO activists ‘insidious campaign’ to block Nigeria’s approval of GMO While the Nigerian government considered the application, there was a period of public consultation. The anti-GM group “Health of Mother Earth Foundation” rolled into action. Repeating standard tropes, they falsely claimed the GM cowpea would cause cancer and infertility, or that the new GM cowpea would take over and eliminate genetic diversity. These activists were “branches of opposition from US and European groups planted here,” said a local. They leveraged social media, newspaper articles and public rallies to roll out scare campaigns. They filed a court case to try and stop the technology. Source: Genetic Literacy Project | Health Of The Mother Earth Foundation (Nigeria)
The GMO industry competes on human health and food safety arguments. GMO is often masked under the term 'food security'. A win on the basis of such utilitarian value arguments would benefit the GMO industry in multiple ways.
A history of faking and misleading
Some time ago it was revealed that the publisher of The Lancet (Elsevier) published 6 fake scientific journals for pharmaceutical companies, to mislead scientists and doctors in the financial interest of companies.
Reputational damage for medical publisher Elsevier, which publishes The Lancet, among others. Last week the Dutch-English company admitted that from 2000 to 2005 it had published six fake journals that were issued for scientific journals. In reality, they were marketing magazines paid for by pharmaceutical companies. The papers published in Australia had names such as Australasian Journal of General Practice and Australasian Journal of Bone & Joint Medicine. The magazines look solid, also because the name Elsevier is prominent on the front page and the sponsor's name is not.
In 2019, the pharmaceutical industry was already investing more than $1 trillion USD per year in synthetic biology ($1,000 billion USD per year). The pharmaceutical industry has been funneling their money to GMO.(2019) Pharmaceutical industry raises bet on GMO as frontier for growth Biotechnology is already a bigger business than many people realize. Rob Carlson of Bioeconomy Capital, an investment company, calculates that money made from creatures which have been genetically engineered accounted for about 2% of American GDP in 2017.

Unleashed on plants and animals
What if companies are let on the loose for a synthetic biology revolution? The potential for damage may be much greater as there will logically be less control and oversight.
With their massive often ill gotten funds, the pharmaceutical industry invests into bio tech to secure further growth, directly affecting billions of plants and animals on earth, of creatures that may posses of meaningful experience.
GMO is corruption of nature from the perspective of nature. GMO is eugenics that resides on the essence of inbreeding which is known to cause fatal problems.
Cows provide an example of why eugenics is harmful.
