Dirty Communist Hippies: Let’s Give Mother Earth The Same Rights As Humans

Bolivia, which is a Communist pesthole that’s famous mainly for cocaine and grinding poverty is also — big surprise here — overrun with crazed ecofreaks (as if there were any other kind these days). So naturally Bolivia, which is run with all the intelligence and forethought that my dog puts into where to take a crap, has a FAB-U-LOUS new suggestion about how to save the earth.

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, which Bolivian President Evo Morales enacted in January.

That document speaks of the country’s natural resources as “blessings,” and grants the Earth a series of specific rights that include rights to life, water and clean air; the right to repair livelihoods affected by human activities; and the right to be free from pollution.

It also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth, and provides the planet with an ombudsman whose job is to hear nature’s complaints as voiced by activist and other groups, including the state.

“If you want to have balance, and you think that the only (entities) who have rights are humans or companies, then how can you reach balance?” Pablo Salon, Bolivia’s ambassador to the UN, told Postmedia News. “But if you recognize that nature too has rights, and (if you provide) legal forms to protect and preserve those rights, then you can achieve balance.”

So bugs, trees, and other natural things now have the same rights as humans in Bolivia? Wow, it’s like they sat down and said, “Our country is already a hellhole. How could we possibly make it worse?” Then, after that was done, they immediately marched off to the UN where they wanted to share their idiocy with the world. Third world countries like Bolivia shouldn’t even be able to propose things to the UN. They should just sit there, shut the hell up, and hope they learn something from their betters — which is pretty much everybody, even at the United Nations — which is kind of sad.

Tell you what, Bolivia; When you finally get a higher GDP per capita than say…  Angola, Cuba, and Turkmenistan, call us back with your fruity idea about treating Mother Earth like people.
