India Grants Legal Person Status to Glaciers
If a river can be a person, why can’t a glacier? After all, both are made mainly out of water, just like people are. This apparently makes sense to the moonbats running India, where a court has granted the status of “legal persons” to Himalayan glaciers:
“The rights of these entities shall be equivalent to the rights of human beings and any injury or harm caused to these bodies shall be treated as injury or harm caused to human beings,” Uttarakhand’s highest court said in its ruling, according to AFP.
This gives the glaciers the legal standing to sue. Since glaciers are people only in the imagination of moonbats, humans will be designated as “legal guardians.” These guardians will not have to prove damage to real people, only to glaciers.
Flopping Aces asks,
So, do the glaciers have the “right” not to melt? Will the glaciers thus be able to sue to prevent any human action that might be perceived to be causing a melt or otherwise impact the ice, boulders, rocks, and dirt that make up glaciers?
Of course. That’s the point.
Flakiness leads to tyranny, tyranny to poverty. India has climbed a long way out of abject misery, but will slide back into it if it can’t get its moonbattery under control.
