I heard the other day that the UK Conservative party is considering leaving the European Convention on Human Rights — the BBC quoted Theresa May earlier this month as saying that “it restricted the UK’s ability to act in the national interest.” Seems to me it may be more a case of sensing the wind of change, and wishing to avoid the possibility of being held to account in the future for the irresponsibility of praying to the god of growth.
At risk of invoking Godwin’s Law, it’s entirely possible that Hitler’s cronies didn’t think they were doing anything wrong either. Me, I don’t think there’s any comparison. Ecocide is a far, far greater evil than anything the Nazis did.
Citizens of the European Union can sign the petition to End Ecocide in Europe: A Citizens’ Initiative to give the Earth Rights.
