Then on the other hand, there is that group of farmers closely akin to the Christian Dominionists in their beliefs regarding god given infallibility with regards to land stewardship, and who, as a general rule are only educated through the eighth grades. I refer to the several Mennonite sub-sects that presently farm huge tracts of US commercial agriculture, along with millions of additional acreage throughout the world. Operating under contract to the various transnationals, they are representatives of a significant segment of that otherwise nebulous entity, corporate agriculture. As one reads of deforestation of rainforests, dig a little deeper and find out how closely linked the Mennonites are to these activities.In my region, nearly all of the CAFO's, and the GMO fields associated with them, are farmed by Mennonites.The public image is belied by the unfortunate reality.
