It is easy to mock this movement and to not take it seriously. That’s how it will win.
The problem comes when, in order to win our acceptance, double-talk is used to pretend that a cult is something other than what it is.
The activists are right about one thing. Rights of nature would be far more effective in impeding development and extracting wealth from the land than the current system.
Radical environmentalists intend to thwart human thriving in order to “save the planet.”
If “nature rights” laws become widespread, there will be plenty of money to pay lawyers to sue developers and resource-using enterprises into the dirt.
