  1. These measures would seem necessary; however, as the United States military-industrial complex, generally, does not put a high priority on ecology, what would we do about the expected violations of such laws. For example, If, when, they sink Greenpeace or Sea Shepard vessel, or “accidentally”, a foriegn coast guard vessel enforcing these laws, what can be done? The Japanese and their fishing industry still have some political clout. Or, if Monsanto, as an example, sent agents, or worked with Government employees, into one of their bananna-republics to root out organic/fair-trade farmers, and contaminate their crops with their seeds, what to do?

  2. Excellent!

    I’ve long considered the actions of Monsanto(MonSatan)et al’s GM products to be a crime against humanity.

    What else can one call the attempted monopolisation of the global food supply along with irreversible infection of the gene pool of humanity’s most important food crops?

    “until we recognise that, presently, corporate CEOs are legally obliged to plunder the planet in the interests of their shareholders, and find a way to overturn this self-destruct mechanism, ultimately our work and our best intentions can mean little to naught.”

    Absolutely true.

    If you’re in any doubt at all about this point or just want to understand the nature of the beast, see the superb, award winning documentary “The Corporation”:

  3. If nobody owns the soil/forest/water, then who has the right to use them? Who will decide what they can be used for? Communism doesn’t work. Ultimately it will come down to a group of people making decision on behalf of the rest. How is it different than what we have now? Perhaps only the people will be different. And the interests might be different. But it is exactly the same system. This is not alternative system. It is a political movement based on environmentalism.

    On the other hand, private ownership when full enforced and protected, will protect the environment and people and place. Much of the destruction comes not from private ownership per se, but rather as failure in enforcing the rights of people that are affected by the action of those corporations in question. For a simple example, if someone owns a block of forest, he has the right to clear it in a way that doesn’t violate the rights of his neighbors. So if by clearing the forest he caused erosion into his neighbor, then he is at fault. But he can of course harvest the timber and create space for fruit orchard, and animals in a sustainable permaculture way to ensure there will be no erosion.

  4. It’s kind of strange, the level of technology we have now. Werner Von Braun reportedly claimed that he had “help” from ETs in their rocket program! If this were true why are we even having this discussion? One would hope such leadership would also deal with the “Jabba the Hut” and his minions that’s been rImming, oops! I mean running this place.

  5. Go and see Polly Higgins. She is fantastic and has a marvellous way of unfolding the truth and law history in simple terms that anyone can understand. I am so happy I went, this is a momentous moment in our history. Understand the full extent of what she is on about and get on board because we should and can close the door on crimes against the earth, against ecocide, just as we closed the door on slavery. The law already exists to do this. We can do this and hold the corporations and GM and the agriculture industries etc to account. It must come from the people. This will be our future and the quicker we move together and cooperate to make it happen the better in my book.

  6. Hi polly hey congradulations to you, I read this articel in the Caduceus magazine a few months ago and have been procrastinating about sending to you a message.
