On his website, Mercola.com, Dr. Joseph Mercola warns about what he calls the “dual threat” of programmable bacteria. He writes:
We are in a strange spot. For a long time, our culture has been assuming that nature is our property and our slave. An unruly and hostile slave — a slave to be tamed, dominated, and abused — as long as we can get away with it and feel good about ourselves as we dominate.
A component of that mindset is that human beings are viewed by the most powerful people in society as their slaves, too. You may be middle class or even upper middle class … they don’t care. In their mind, you are their toy, exist for them. And as it goes, whatever the masters to do to nature or to the animals, they to do the people next.
For example, as more and more people moved to cities, we were told to adopt the habit of necessarily chipping, vaccinating, and neutering our pets. It is all for their own good, right? Well, it started with chipping pets but now … I digress.
This story is about the bacteria. When they talk about programmable bacteria or “bacteria with programmable DNA,” I see it as dual threat, On the one hand, I can’t help but think about the fact that to our masters, human beings on the ground are no different than bacteria. People are a resource to them — and they are not shy about their desire to program biological life, including human life. That much, we know.
Secondly, we don’t know anything about the long-term safety of the products produced with genetically modified bugs. And today, genetically modified microbes are a major and still growing medium for the industrial production of chemical substances, foods, medicines, therapeutic proteins, and so on. And allegedly, manufacturers don’t even need to label such products as GMO.
