|About Organic Lawyers|
"Organic" and "lawyers" is an odd pairing of words. "Organic" in this context means "of, relating to or constituting the law by which a government exists." "Organic" also means "of, relating to or derived from living organisms." Because this site addresses issues from the perspective of a lawyer who represents farmers and ranchers, it is "organic" under both definitions.
It is also unusual that "property rights" and "sustainability" are juxtaposed on this site. "Property rights" is thought of as a right-wing conservative focus. While "sustainability" is thought of as a left-wing liberal concept. For example, sustainability minded Al Gore is advocating global regulations to curb carbon emissions to save the planet from global climate change; while property rights advocate, Senator Jim Inhofe (R, OK) accuses Gore of burdening business based on faulty science. It seems to me that Mr. Gore should explain why it is not possible to accomplish his goals without international agreements that threaten our Constitutional rights. Inhofe should explain why he favors freedom for energy companies at the expense of freedom for citizens to choose alternative sources of energy. Interesting issues come with these odd pairings ... thus ... "organic lawyers."
