Social Ecology

Hierarchy & Ecological Collapse

Ecological destruction is neither caused by humanity, as misanthropic environmentalist narratives proclaim, nor is it caused by a simple mismanagement of policies to be corrected by states or the hidden fist of capitalism, in order to sustainably exploit natural resources. The current ecological crises arise from the domination and exploitation of nature, which originates in the domination and exploitation of human beings in hierarchical social systems.

Symbiosis & Sustainability

Decentralized, democratic control of both production and communities provides the cure to the voracious appetite of capitalism, while community control provides the cooperative, horizontal basis needed to break free from domination.
