Yikes! Talk about painting a broad brush. The original posts
regarded government mandated spraying of noxious
pests (i.e, pest eradication, pest quarantines, etc).
This is a decades-old practice and it usually very localized
and noxious-pest specific. For some pests, and the
pesticides chosen to control them, it is controversial. For others,
everybody is happy to get rid them.
So I see no reason to up-grade the topic to a general
comment on the use of pesticides by chemophilian robot
farmers or the existence of those nefarious chemical companies.
On the other hand, it may be an interesting point of discussion
to consider the following scenario:

(or a specific-herbicide resistant wheat or rice) will be mandated
on a county-wide basis in the certain districts of Arkansas, Mississipi,
