|Mother Earth has Rights!|
UNITED NATIONS — Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving “Mother Earth” the same rights as humans — having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country.
The bid aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to “dominate and exploit” — to the point that the “well-being and existence of many beings” is now threatened.
This is silly, you think.
This is crazy, you say.
My back yard can sue me for getting mowed? The trees have a right not to be turned into housing? Mother Earth can "Just Say NO!" to oil drilling?
Go ahead people, laugh now while you still can.
This will be the reality within your lifetime. Gaia will have rights and you will lose yours.You doubt that?
Go back 30- 40 years and ask your grandfather if he thought that Americans would ban smoking in bars. Go ask him if he could have imagined mandatory recycling programs in every city. See if he would envision billions of dollars spent to combat ‘Global Warming”.
Go ask him if the miracle cure for malaria, DDT, would be banned. See if he believes that entire forests and rivers will be placed off limits to humans because a snail lives there. Ask him if Alar would be banned from use on apples.
In short, ask anyone from the previous generation if the things we consider ‘normal’ would have been acceptable to them.
The Left works on a different time scale. The left knows that what sounds bat-crap crazy today will sound perfectly reasonable to a future generation that has been exposed to decades of propaganda.
We are losing this fight because the other team is more dedicated and more organized, and they are working on a different time scale
