[Absolute MUST READ for anyone interested in why capitalism is fucking up the planet and sowing the seeds of human extinction. WB]
The above title may appear facetious, but it is not. It is scientific. Many of the economic practices designed to maximise profits are unnatural. In terms of ecology they are discordant and as the productive capacity of capitalism grows, so the rebound effect from nature is multiplied. The coronavirus now beginning to spread globally, despite the unashamed cover-ups in the West, is such an effect. This article attempts to describe the balancing role played by viruses in nature.
MOSCOW: The Russian Ministry of Defense has accused Ankara of arming its Alqaeda allies with Turkish Army uniforms, helmets, something under 70 tanks, less than 200 armored vehicles, 80 pieces of artillery and American- manufactured anti-aircraft rockets, and, Turkish Army gas masks. So far, of the 70 tanks, 20 have been destroyed by the Syrian Army. A troop carrier loaded with Nusra (HTS) rodents was incinerated as it headed toward Areeha with the number of dead confirmed at 18.

GM seeds and GM food carry great risks for all nations, so much so that for many reasons it is probably imperative these foods be banned outright. This subject is too large to be discussed here, but one aspect requires brief notice. If we were to ask about the origin of GM seeds, how the idea was conceived and developed, who did the research and who provided the funding, how would we reply? We might reasonably suggest that perhaps the concept originated in the Biology or Agricultural Department of some university, or that a government lab doing research on food supplies might have conceived and pursued the idea. Or, we might suggest a private company in the agricultural field was looking for more productive varieties of grains and stumbled on this process.
