"A book is not an isolated being: it is a relationship, an axis of innumerable relationships"

"Eggplant is an Indian crop, so [Monsanto does] genetic engineering of eggplant. They could have chosen 500 vegetables. Why don’t they choose potatoes for India? Why eggplant? Because it is native to India and we have 4,500 varieties. Why do they want to plant – by bullying – on six million acres – GM corn in Mexico? Because corn is the sacred crop of Mexico and the Andes. So basically, while the justification is, “We are doing science,” the reality is they are unleashing a war against our sacred cultures."
