An Open Letter to Monsanto Employees
January 4, 2013 in Health
There’s a lot of bad stuff being said about Monsanto these days. You’ve probably heard those kinds of things quite a bit since so much of this evidence is available on the Internet. Despite a total media blackout of what Monsanto has been up to, it’s pretty obvious that the company is evil. But just because you work for Monsanto doesn’t mean that you are evil too.
I’ve been thinking about what I would do if I worked for a company like Monsanto. First, I would be thankful for a good job so that I could take care of myself and my family. And I would be torn if I thought that corporation was hurting people. Could I separate my individual job from the harm that the corporation was causing? I don’t know. Maybe. I would definitely believe that my first responsibility was to take care of my family no matter what.
I’m not writing this to tell people they should quit their jobs out of the blue, unless they could find another (better) job first. It’s not my place to tell people what to do with their lives anyway. I am hoping, however, that you do find a better job for yourself, your family, and the entire world. Somehow. Someday.
My name is Danan Whiddon. I’m a real person and I believe that you are worthy of love and respect. I believe that your life means even more than the immense power wielded by this one corporation. And I believe that what you do in the next few years could save the world.
Please consider giving your energy and your time to something – anything – that serves you, your family, your fellow man, and your planet – when you are able.
Corporations don’t care about people, animals, or our Earth.
They don’t care about me – and they certainly don’t care about you.
Corporations aren’t people because they don’t have souls.
You have a soul.
