Big Pharma-Big Agra mergers have accelerated recently, with Syngenta being bought by ChemChina (China National Chemical Corporation), Dow Chemical merging with DuPont, and Monsanto agreeing to be acquired by Bayer on Sept. 14th 2016 for US$66 billion. Bayer and Monsanto have signed off on the deal, now US and EU regulators will examine the details.
If the deal is approved, this new corporate behemoth will be the largest agribusiness on Earth, selling 29% of the world’s seeds and 24% of the world’s pesticides. This would constitute a massive consolidation of power into the hands of a few, a power which would determine who gets seeds to grow food to eat, and who doesn’t.
Big Pharma and Big Biotech are in the same kind of industries – using synthetic, artificial and chemical techniques to “hack” life and duplicate products which are of inferior quality to the original – and more harmful. Big Pharma-Big Agra mergers are therefore to be expected, although that doesn’t make them any less dangerous. The centralization of chemical production is indicative of the greater New World Order plan of centralization of power – as well as the synthetic reality agenda which underlines all its machinations.
