So, in your (GM?) mind, all scientists are good, moral people, i.e., normal human beings - and all politicians are bad? I am neither a scientist nor a politician, but I have enough humanity in me to know that that crazy woman scientist (on the Ch4 prog) was a clone, par exellence! I wonder what lab she was "created" inTora wrote:
As long as there are regulatory processes in place and the people making the decision are SCIENTISTS not POLITICIANS then I have absolutely no problem with GM.
The fact is: we elect people (politicians) to represent our needs as human beings, and in a democracy, it is the largest section of the populace that gets to decide how our society (shared community) functions. If our democratically-elected politicians ignore the wishes of the people and instead let mad/bad profiteering scientists do what they like with our natural resources just to generate monetary profit for themselves, then we had better start changing our voting habits, and ditch this illusion of democracy for real democracy!
