Science and technology constitutes the magic of our age, and given that it produces effects, it is funded by the ruling class who use it to consolidate their power and control the plebs. A few crumbs fall form the festive table that the masses can eat, to keep them extra docile. Consider human genes now in rice; look mum, I am sooooooo clever:
“Rice that has been engineered with actual human genes is on its way to a supermarket near you. In Junction City, Kansas, this human gene-tainted rice is being grown on 3,200 acres by the biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience. Ventria began cultivating this rather horrifying product in 2006 with human liver genes. What exactly was the purpose of this, you ask? Their intention was to harvest the artificial enzymes produced by the rice and use them in pharmaceuticals. Ventria has taken one of the most widely grown and consumed crops and turned it into the base for new prescription drugs — all with USDA approval, of course.
