The argument against Monsanto

just to recap, there are a few reasons to be concerned about Monsanto, in no particular order...

1) Anti-competitive business practices - Monsanto is an aggressive monopolist
2) Regulatory capture - Monsanto exerts undue influence over the government agencies that are supposed to regulate it in the US and internationally.
3) Environmental destruction
4) Reckless science - flawed premises
5) Legal and economic abuse of small farmers

Did I leave anything out?
We'll be looking at each of these in detail as time goes by...
