As virtuous people, we expect corporations to act with a sense of fundamental human decency. We expect them to behave within the boundaries of respecting human life, honest business practices and reliable science. We naively wish that corporations would act like decent human beings.
In their quest for profit at any cost, they violate the basic tenets of virtue. They malign Mother Nature herself, and in doing so, they threaten the very future of sustainable life on our planet.
Here, I unravel the fundamental "violations of virtue" that Monsanto practices on a daily basis. Its entire seed-and-herbicide business model is designed to trap farmers in a system of economic dependence They compromise and violate life.

By encouraging farmers to spray literally millions of acres of farmland with Roundup, Monsanto is engaged in a conspiracy to destroy our agricultural heritage and turn us all into "food slaves" that must pay tribute to Monsatan.
Scientific deception over scientific truth The so-called "science" coming out of Monsanto is some of the most inane, malicious and brutally deceptive junk science ever fabricated by corporate science sellouts.
Instead of testing GMOs for long durations on animals, Monsanto-funded scientists test GMOs for a mere 90 days and then adamantly declare the food to be "safe" for a lifetime of consumption by humans.
