How about a fourth group, saying: We have enough, but they which are ruling us
won´t give enough to them just a little bit to show the world how noble they are,
instead of breaking the walls.
we don´t need no education
we don´t need no thought controll
hey teacher all in all you´re just
another brick in the wall

fight back the nssr12/99 doctrin

At this point of time the world is able with or without GM-food to feed all people,
through GMF even more, but if it is expensive or not given away.............. we
wouldn´t have problems ;-)
