Cool: Personhood for glaciers

From Wesley J. Smith at ENV:

Environmentalism is going mad. In the process, it’s becoming dangerous to human thriving and to our metaphysical self perception.

Last week, I wrote about rivers being declared “persons.” Now in India, glaciers have been similarly declared to be “living entities.” Specifically, a court has declared that rivers of ice have the “rights” of legal persons. More.

Reality check: The point about personhood for glaciers (and about rocks having minds) is not to increase their rights so much as to doom ours. To a progressive, humans are not special and consciousness is an illusion, which is why rocks rocks can have minds too.

No. They are not kidding. They have nothing else.

    I has heard they had declared the Ganges as a person but then it has been deified for thousands of years. The actual river really needs help, It is choked with floral offerings garbage,raw sewage,dead aninmals, the complete bodies of the uncremated poor and the remains of partialy cremated people,( CNN had a poorly recieved special on the cult that lives off these partially burned remains)
    There used to be a thriving industry supplying research skeletons collected off the many sandbars, that was stopped after outrage ,now they just pile up like driftwood and rot. the river is pretty much dead and if reverance as the scared mother river is not enough to protect it perhaps legal personhood will, although i doubt it

      The more I learn about other cultures the more they disgust me.

      Thanks for sharing that info.

    Well hopefully they’ll start paying their taxes like the rest of us; I’m tired of those damn freeloader glaciers and rocks.

    It’s nonsense like this that makes me believe that anti-environmentalists are running the environmental movement with the aim of making it look ridiculous.

    It seems like a safe bet that the greenies will be attacking pipelines soon.

    The claim that rocks have minds can be attributed to leftists being told that they’re dumber than a rock. Proof that if you hear something often enough youll believe it.

    This shit will only end up with humanity in ‘progressive’ run death camps in the future. These monsters are no different from the ones in the USSR/Germany/China/etc… Their end goal is the extermination of massive swaths of humanity – all for mother gaia. The future is setting up to look like a nightmare dystopian setup.

    My ex was as frigid as a glacier.

  • But no personhood for actual people?
