Peoples World reports that in Bolivia, “Mother Earth” is about to become a person with all the same rights. The Law of Bolivia, la Ley de Derechos de la Madre Tierra, which is in line with the Marxist philosophy touted by UN’s Agenda 21, will enforce new control measures on industry aimed at reducing “environmental destruction.”
The fact that we don’t know how much destruction man causes and if we can even make any negligible difference seems to have escaped the Bolivians.
Animals cause environmental destruction – all that methane they give off – shall we eliminate or reduce them?
The soon-to-be law defines natural resources as blessings and makes nature a human being with the right to life and to exist; the right to continue vital cycles and processes free from human alteration; the right to pure water and clean air; the right to balance; the right not to be polluted; and the right to not have cellular structure modified or genetically altered.
Most absurd and threatening to modern society is the Mother’s right “to not be affected by mega-infrastructure and development projects that affect the balance of ecosystems and the local inhabitant communities.”
There’s widespread support for this in Bolivia, but it is obviously dangerous thinking unless you are a Marxist. The rulings that will come out of the guidelines will intrude on the rights of real human beings, businesses, and private property rights.
If you will remember, it was only last April and May when the self-proclaimed Marxist, Van Jones, announced his plan to ask the UN to declare Mother Nature a human being. Read here: Rights for Mother Nature and Van Jones all in on the Mother Nature Personage Thing
This entire philosophy is consistent with the UN’s Agenda 21 and ICLEI’s Smart Growth/Sustainability Movement.
