"It's like the DNA of this country has to be changed"

Video from Maine videographer Martha Spiess: Thomas Linzey talks about CELDF (Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund) and how the Rights Based Ordinance movement has evolved and is growing. He discusses how local communities can challenge the regulatory doctrine at a grass roots level by passing rights based ordinance within their community and asserting inalienable rights to local self-governance, and the need to change the Constitution to "keep the good stuff and get rid of the bad stuff." Change will be led, says Linzey, by those who are most impacted by corporate rule. "They're running out of options. They can't turn to the regulatory system. They understand what it is."
