GM farming is saving the world.

Yep.

The more worthless Indian farmers we can get rid of, the better.

To: E. Pluribus Unum

The global struggle over GM plants is fascinating. GM foods are integral for overcoming the Malthusian nightmares forecasted by Paul Ehrlich who was certain in the 1970s that India would never feed itself— let alone become the food exporter that it is today.

The Neo Malthusians are determined to keep starvation alive on the planet by banning GM plants and creating the franken-food sensation. Indian politics seems to be highly driven by this kind of radicalism.

It would be interesting to know what various death rates [including starvation, malnutrion, etc.] in India were prior to the introduction of GM crops to the region.
