Ecokooks: Plants Should Be Able to Sue


The concept of “civil rights” is twisted into an ever more grotesque mockery as liberal groups exploit it to advance their pernicious agendas:

What if a trimmed tree could sue as an amputee or a shucked clam could claim wrongful eviction?

In an effort to ban everything from drilling oil to incinerating garbage, about a dozen communities across the country have adopted ordinances that give nature legal standing and water down the rights of businesses.

Ben Price of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund reveals the objective:

“What’s normal isn’t working. A regulatory law regulates the rate of destruction — it doesn’t stop it.”

That is, ecofascists don’t want economically productive activity slowed down. They want it ended.

Price and others see their struggle to give nature legal standing as comparable to another historic effort that was years in the making.

“It took hundreds of challenges,” he said, “before racial segregation was overturned as the law of the land.”

Fortunately people this far out of their minds could never stay off the funny farm long enough to impose their bizarre views on others, right? Wrong: Comrade Obama’s powerful Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein has advanced similar ideas:

[R]epresentatives of animals should be able to bring private suits to ensure that anticruelty and related laws are actually enforced.

If a chicken can sue, why not a weed? Greedy lawyers will have no problem finding clients with moonbats running the show.
