Politically Empowering the Natural Environment

If we are going to effectively save our planet from the excesses of human over-exploitation and destruction than we are going to have to preserve the natural environment by giving it a statehood of its own capable of defending its own interests, free from the political domination of society. To effectively represent the rights of the natural environment it must be made a political entity that can represent its own interests. If our natural environment is to survive its own social users it needs to be made a separate political entity and autonomous from the human political entities that inhabit it.

The only way we can emancipate the natural environment is to empower it politically, which is precisely what the entrusted resources state does. It would give the natural environment its own political state within which it could protect and defend its own interests.  Granting our natural environment equal rights would ultimately mean the protection of all of the species on our planet, which in the process would insure our own long-term human survival as well.

As a separate political entity the natural environment could then defend itself politically from any abuses inflicted upon it by its human inhabitants.  By empowering the natural environment politically, we give it the ability to protect itself from any abusive human behavior while still providing the natural resource foundation for the entrusted resources state. This empowering of the natural environment would avert a global ecological catastrophe that if allowed to continue will negatively affect generations of human beings as well as the other species we share our planet with.

Emancipating our natural environment from human domination would allow it, as an ecological state, to be able to protect itself from our misuse, which would allow it to evolve in a healthy and natural way that benefits all of us. This would politically empower our natural environment with life, liberty and justice from our own social institutions. Then the natural environment will be able to adequately present its own concerns to the human communities of the world that depend on it for their natural resources.

An Ecological State

By issuing the natural environment with equal rights, we would be emancipating it from human domination and misuse.   Emancipating the biosphere would create an ecological state. The biosphere of the ecological state would also become a member of the natural resources state trust that would be holding it entrust for the entrusted resources state. In a world organized along entrusted resources state lines, their combined natural resources trusts would form a common ecological state among themselves.

The ecological state would act as the custodian of the combined natural resources that it would hold entrust. It would provide the natural foundation upon which the various political and social institutions of society would build upon. It would consist of the natural resources trusts of the many social and political institutions that would be holding them entrust.

Giving the natural environment its own state system would make it an ecological state that would be capable of representing its own interests. All natural resources would be a part of the ecological state that would represent them collectively. It would defend the natural environment from the abuses heaped upon them by the social institutions that want to use them.

It would have the ability to negotiate the use of its natural resources with the social trusts that wish to use them. This would provide the natural environment with a state of on its own that would allow it to protect itself. This would then allow the ecological state to act in it’s own behalf, beyond the dictates of the various social and political institutions that its natural resources would be entrusted to.

Everything within its natural state of existence would be considered a member of the ecological state. Therefore, each person with every other natural thing within a natural state of existence would also be considered a natural resource of the ecological state. Then we would all be protected from those institutions that would wish to do us harm by having membership within the ecological state. This would allow all of nature’s natural development to take place within a state of nature beyond the dictates of human interests.

Entrusting All Types of Relationships

Within the system that I propose, all relationships, social, political and natural would be entrusted relationships. As I stated previously, within my forth coming book tiled Cosmopoly I present my new system of Cooperativism in which all forms of social and political relationships would become entrusted relationships in which those entrusted to each other would be contractually obligated to one other for the life of their entrustment.

This also holds true for our relationship with our natural environment. Within Cooperativism the natural environment would have its own natural trust in which it would self-regulate its own natural resources. As a natural trust it would be a separate political entity that would be able to defend its own interests against the political and social institutions that want to utilize its natural resources.

Within an entrusted government system all relationships whether social, political or natural would be cooperative and would form either social, political or natural trusts depending on the nature of the type of trust that they would be entering into. Each trust would hold in trust the responsibility that each person or thing would have toward all of the other people and things that he or she would be entrusted with.
