Quotes[edit]

  • An anarchist society, far from being a remote ideal, has become a precondition for the practice of ecological principles.
  • The ecological principle of unity in diversity grades into a richly mediated social principle; hence my use of the term social ecology.
  • Socialists have all too often failed to take ecological issues seriously enough. However, this is not a fault of socialists alone, as the fault applies even more to the liberal tradition taken as a whole. But whatever we choose to say about socialism in the twentieth century, it has to be emphasized that no one can be truly socialist and indeed Marxist in the twenty-first century and fail to acknowledge the full severity of the planetary ecological crisis. We are either at the forefront of the struggle to protect the earth as a place of human habitation (and as a home for innumerable species) or we are on the side of the system’s creative exterminism of the Earth system as we know it.
