A contract bewteen parties is only valid when both sides agree, when other parties are excluded from this decision and those other parties are the real owners of the property which the contract is based to use, then the contract can not be valid and is actually illegal.

Well did you ever sign a contract stating that you agree to living in a world which is polluted by companies destroying the Air which they can not own, destroying the Water which they can not hold and the land on the top crust being filled wtih poison and waste with no reguard to the real owners of Earth, the living things which dwell on it, in it and above it? I did not and I was never asked if I thought it was o.k. to pollute our world like I never even mattered since I did not have a claim to land which was originally stolen from the Native American Indians in the first place at least in America.

We the living, each own one share in Earthstock, it is non transferable, and it allows each one of us and every animal, every river to have a voice which must be respected and valued as it is our only planet and we can not leave it, yet. All companies which in the past, present and future which pollute the Earth are operating illegally and need to changed to non polluting by some one other then a bought off government from its money feed bag lobbyests.

This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
