UN document would give bugs, trees same rights as humans


www.infowars.com

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.

The wording may yet evolve, but the general structure is meant to mirror Bolivia’s Law of the Rights of Mother Earth

I apologise in advance if this has been previously posted. A search has yielded no results thus far.
I don't know what you make of this, but to me it seems reasonable especially for South America and Bolivia who's nature has for to long been at the mercy of multi-national corporations. However(this is going to sound cynical) what rights do we as human beigns have that prevent us from being expiremented on, poisoned and used as a comodity?

Yet another sign of mass psychosis.

I totally agree with living in harmony with mother nature but this is just sub-moronic.
The governments themselves are natures worst nightmare.

Yes, that's right the same idiots that will confine you to prison for hurting a pitbull while it's mauling your child will now be protecting the stinkbug with equal vengeance.

The most terrifying and telling language of this article is the assertion that rights will be given. As if the planet earth needed humanity to form a United Nations before it could have rights. Indeed, the very arrogance of "giving" the planet earth, or other animals other than humans, and insects rights only becomes a part of the same problem they presumably hope to address.

I keep stating this, to the point of ad nauseum, but I will keep stating this as long as it seems necessary:

The rose does not need a Congress of roses, (or humans for that matter), in order to derive the right to keep and bear thorns. The porcupine does not need a decree from a king in order to derive the right to keep and bear needles, and the skunk does not need permission from the state in order to carry and spew stink. These rights of self defense are self evident, and the skunk has the unalienable and natural right to spew its stink, and the rose, by any other name, has the right to smell as sweet.

A mosquito has the right to life. Humans have the right to life. Mosquito's, however, carry diseases that are harmful to humans, so when a mosquito lands on a persons arm and begins extracting blood, that human has a right to defend themselves from the mosquito, including swatting the bug dead. If the mosquito wishes to avoid being swatted dead, or being exterminated through other tools and chemicals, it would behoove the mosquito to avoid extracting blood from humans. A certain peace between mosquito's and humans becomes necessary before humans can seriously consider recognizing the mosquito's right to life as opposed to the act of self defense humans engage in when killing these bugs.

Then there is the matter of sustenance. Humans must eat if they are to survive. Some might argue that humans are not dependent upon animals to survive and can do so living off of a vegetarian diet alone, and there may or may not be some validity to this. However, there are vital vitamins in meat that are necessary to the human survival and just as the lion or tiger finds the right to hunt and kill its prey, so too do humans. Just as the mosquito finds the right to hunt, and often kill its prey, so too do humans, and just as the black widow finds the right to protect its home and sting with its venom an intruder, so too do humans find this right, and it is in the best interest of any human to squash the unfortunate black widow who has imprudently made a home inside the home of a human, lest that human become the unfortunate.

The United Nations is an insane organization comprised of insane people. It is a prime example of the inmates running the asylum. It would be nice if it were true that by simply ignoring such an organization it would go away, but this does not seem to be true. The United Nations is a threat to individuals and has tirelessly worked at eroding the unalienable rights of individuals so they may exchange them with government granted rights that normally take the effect of "collective" rights.

It is tragic and sad, but often times the only reasonable solution in dealing with the insane, particularly when they make clear they are a threat to others, is to lock them up. The criminally insane that comprise the United Nations need to be dealt with in an appropriate fashion, as do the criminally insane of most governments across the world.

I read the article and I think it's a beautiful idea.

It's a very anti-West idea.

The article said that Bolivia and Ecuador already have laws like this in their countries.

Both countries have large indigenous populations, and this is part of their belief system. I think it's very sane.

But I think they are a little naive to take it before the UN. We usually think of the UN as pro-West.

If they were to adopt such a treaty for PR purposes, that is probably as far as it would ever go.

Cats are going to be in big trouble. They love chasing insects and birds and the like. Come to think of it so will dogs. Hmm...what if no one noticed my cat chases insects, will he be okay?

Hello and thank you for creating this thread,
I just created my account to share my thoughts on this because there was another thread discussing this that was poking fun at this conceptual idea. www.abovetopsecret.com... but I was unable to post a comment on that thread.

Just today I had to compose a speech for class on a topic of my choice, and this relates heavly to what I had to say, and I'll share a little now....
Firstly, this appears to me as modern land ethics, just like Aldo Leopold wrote about and was published in 1949 www.aldoleopold.org...
The point is that there is too great a focus on the dollar sign and entitlement-notion with land, when in reality we are all connected to the land making it part of our community. Aldo Leopold wrote; "All ethics so far evolved rest upon a single premises: that the individual is a member of a community of interdependant parts...The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants, and animals, or collectively: the land.."
Now, this shouldn't mean that we don't support ourselves with help of land, it means we do so morally and ethically. Through sustainable farming, conservation, and refusing GMOs and steroid/antibiotic pumped animals..
We have most likely all seen the movie Avatar... What if someone cut down the Bodhi Tree because they assumed some sort of economical gain from doing so...
I apologize if this is kind of a rant, it is a topic hot on my mind currently.

This is why it is important: The Tragedy of the Commons.




Picture a pasture open to all. It is to be expected that each herdsman will try to keep as many cattle as possible on the commons. Such an arrangement may work reasonably satisfactorily for centuries because tribal wars, poaching, and disease keep the numbers of both man and beast well below the carrying capacity of the land. Finally, however, comes the day of reckoning, that is, the day when the long-desired goal of social stability becomes a reality. At this point, the inherent logic of the commons remorselessly generates tragedy.

Its a great idea!!! the problem will come with with policing of of it. In the wrong hands you will all be forced to live in cities built,maintained and operated by the corporation! venturing into the GREEN area will be prohibited unless you have corporate approval! this is very NWO not suprised it came from down South first.

I support the idea of a NWO, but i also know that the people who get to run it (if they are the same ones that are runnning things now) will only go and FuZZ it up, like everything they have already fuzzed up.
