Here’s another vlog I made for my university class, this one on our desire to control, and in some cases kill. I am using Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring as an example where alternative paradigms for managing crops have been side-stepped in favour of what she calls ‘biocides’ (DDT). Even today, we see the same desire to control through dangerous insecticides like neonicotinoids. And just like in Carson’s day, these are being created and championed by corporate greed.
Take a look and let me know your thoughts.
