4/18/11, Fox News:  UN PREPARES TO DEBATE WHETHER "MOTHER EARTH" DESERVES HUMAN RIGHTS STATUS       United Nations diplomats will set aside pressing issues of international peace and security to devote an entire day debating the rights of "mother earth" on Wednesday.  A bloc of mostly socialist governments lead by Bolivia, have put the issue on the General Assembly agenda to discuss the creation of a UN treaty that would grant the same rights found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to "mother nature."  Treaty supporters want the establishment of legal systems to maintain balance between human rights and what they perceive as the inalienable rights of members of the Earth community - plants, animals and terrain.  Communities and environmental activists would be given more legal power to monitor and control industries and development to ensure harmony between humans and nature.  Two years ago, the General Assembly passed a Bolivia led resolution proclaiming April 22 as "International Mother Earth Day."  The measure was endorsed by all 192 member states.  Bolivian President, Evo Morales, envisioned much more, vowing in a speech to UN delegates that a global movement had begun to lay out a "Declaration on the Rights of Mother Earth."  Morales, who repeatedly says, "The central enemy of 'mother earth' is capitalism," called for creating a charter that defends the right to life of all living things.  Morales, who was named "World Hero of Mother Earth" by the General Assembly, has since made great strides in his campaign.  In January, Bolivia became the first nation to grant the natural environment equal rights to humans.  Bolivia's law of Mother Earth is heavily influenced by the spiritual indigenous Andean world outlook that revolves around the earth Pachamama, roughly translated to "mother earth."  The Bolivian law establishes 11 rights for nature that include: the right to life and to exist, the right to pure water and clean air, right not to have cellular structure modified or genetically altered, the right to have natures processes free from human alteration.  The law also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth to act as an ombudsman, which will ensure nature is not being affected by mega-infrastructure and development projects that affect the balance of ecosystems and the local inhabitant communities.  Emboldened by his triumph, Morales's goal is to emulate his domestic achievement as a UN treaty.  In a 2008 address to a UN forum on indigenous people, he said the first step in saving the earth is to "eradicate capitalism" and to force wealthy industrialized countries to pay their environmental debt.  Morales presented ten points, or Evo's Ten Commandments, as they are affectionately called by devotees to save the planet.  Among them is the call to end the capitalist system (meaning your and my freedoms), and a world without imperialism or colonialism.  Respect for mother earth is Commandment 6.  

My comments:  I believe in taking care of our environment, for sure, but this focus goes beyond ridiculous, when they haven't given much thought to humans.  Why not establish a national day of "Helping the Poor" or "Feeding the Hungry" or "Sheltering the Homeless?"  These people "worship" the earth and have little regard for most of humanity.  In fact, the UN delegates are comprised of elitists who want to hone the population of what they refer to as "useless eaters," which puts everyone in danger.  Hitler started out killing basically Jews, which is horrifying enough, but in little time began doing away with anyone who opposed him.  When these socialists converge and begin exalting the earth, which they believe you and I are harming, watch out!  Barack Obama "loves the UN;" he loves it so much that when Arizona refused to allow open borders with MX, Obama took our sovereign matter to the UN for intervention!  Barack Obama has a socialist mentality (if you have read his books, Audacity of Hope and Dreams from My Father, you will know this to be true) and his dream of a One World Order for this nation is ultimately a dictatorship by the UN and loss of our freedom as we know it in America.  Ten Commandments for "mother earth?"  These wicked people don't acknowledge the Ten Commandments of God Almighty, but they want to honor ten commandments to "mother earth!"  This is BLASPHEMY!
