I have been so caught up in the continuing dissipation of medical ethics and the euthanasia juggernaut in Canada, I haven’t had the time to discuss ecocide in awhile. Last year, I warned that Monsanto would be put on a mock trial for “ecocide.”
What is that, you ask? Ecocide represents a radical environmentalist agenda that would criminalize the large-scale exploitation of natural resources as an international “crime against peace” deemed as heinous by the Greensters as genocide and ethnic cleansing.
Ecocide is not yet international law — even though it has received a friendly reception in high places. But we can get a glimpse of what it would be like should the U.N. adopt the proposal.
I have previously written about a moot court ecocide trial in which hypothetical executives of Alberta tar oil companies were tried in the chambers of England’s Supreme Court. Now, in the Hague, Monsanto will be tried for war crimes and ecocide by a gaggle of hard leftists. From the International Monsanto Tribunal website:
The Monsanto Tribunal is an international civil society initiative to hold Monsanto accountable for human rights violations, for crimes against humanity, and for ecocide. Eminent judges will hear testimonies from victims, and deliver an advisory opinion following procedures of the International Court of Justice.A parallel People’s Assembly provides the opportunity for social movements to rally and plan for the future we want.
Right, a communist one. Not to worry, though, I am sure the pretenders will give the hated company a fair trial.
It’s easy to chuckle about this and say, “This is just radicals doing the nonsense radicals do. It will never happen.” If you think that, you haven’t been paying attention for the last fifty years.
These people seriously want to criminalize the activities necessary for human thriving. For more information on the future the environmental misanthropes have in store for us, see my book The War on Humans.
