Monsanto Going Down: update.
Most folks, when they know they are dying, make their wills, get their affairs in order, maybe try to apologize for past misdeeds, maybe if they are well known or have had public careers, try to get their stories told. Former groundskeeper and terminally ill cancer patient Dwayne Johnson, a hero in my opinion, is suing Monsanto. Johnson used Roundup, Monsanto's flagship product, often as part of his duties. Parents do like to see an expanse of green lawn around their children's schools, and, while they are apt to complain about pesticides, don't seem to have a problem with herbicides. Johnson developed a fatal form of cancer, a result, he and his lawyers claim and will attempt to prove, of his exposure to Monsanto's most profitable product.
He is not the only one. The article cited points out there some 400 other plaintiffs alleging harm from use of the supposedly "safe for humans" herbicide. If Monsanto were a person, we would be calling this murder, or homicide at least.
Once upon a time, I have read or heard somewhere, companies had things called charters, and those charters could be revoked at the will of governments. Something I would like to see on political party's platform is companies who cause harm to people or the environment can have their charters revoked.
