Exploitation of farmers.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

The unconscionable exploitation of farmers by large companies, many having the power of large market share, is putting the world’s food producers out of business. Whilst this is going on the profits of these companies benefit their shareholders, who should, themselves, be more responsible. In the long term their attitude endangers the food supply of all human beings.

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    This is indeed a great danger – the Monsantos will never be willing to help us with real aid when necessary.

  2. Perhaps you should tell us step by step what we as humans who need food can do to make a change. I will do it for what you say is true!

      A change can only be effected by a tidal wave of ethical outrage as well as the awareness by the multitude of how they are being manipulated and a wish to change this! The seeds of change is there but the wisdom and commitment is not.
      P.S. Sorry about the delay in responding (I presume the comment was directed at me). I must have missed the notification in my mail.

    I was going to mention a recent case of a farmer in Australia who had to uproot and burn a ten year old field of apple trees simply because the supermarket which had been buying the perfectly good fruit declared them unsuitable.
    Well, I seem to have made the point even partially but cases like this are rife with variations as to reasons.
