here are two main groups hard at work trying to establish similarities between nanotechnology and genetically modified organisms (GMOs): the press and NGOs.
In the case of the press, their motivation is quite simple. It's about selling papers and establishing or re-establishing, as the case may be, the particular media outlet's hard-hitting investigative journalism credentials.
For NGOs the explanation is somewhat more obscure simply because we can't see the traces of greed on it. Instead what we get with NGOs is what one might call, in psychological terms, transference.
What they are really angry about involves wars and their loss of privacy, but, most importantly, the threat of big business doing something for profit that puts them somehow at risk. Nanotechnology just happens to be a good scapegoat for them to address those fears and concerns.
