 Economic Paths to Our Survival
Thus the economic collapse was not because of anything inherent to socialism alone, but rather inherent to industrialized economies that ignore ecological realities (hint: what does capitalism do?).
Sarkar analyses the two competing economic ideologies that vie for our support, socialism and capitalism.
Sarkar states that the choice is not really between capitalism and socialism, but rather eco-socialism or barbarism. /PEN/1999-10/review1.html

Capitalism will fail just as socialism did, and eco-socialism should take over, claims Eco-Socialism or Eco-Capitalism - A Critical Analysis of Humanity's Fundamental Choices by Saral Sarkar, a scholar born near the India-Bangladesh border and presently active in Germany.
The author begins by investigating why the Soviet bureaucratic model of socialism failed, arguing that, early on, it ran up against both environmental and resource related limits to growth.

 Eco-Socialism or Eco-Capitalism?: A Critical Analysis of Humanity's Fundamental Choices - Search for New and Used Student Books at - Book Reviews and Consumer Ratings.
Sarkar believes that the ecology movement must recognize that socialism, not capitalism, offers the best hope for society to realize the state of "biocentric equality" that will be needed to secure human rights and stabilize the environment.
Central to the author's analysis is the "limits to growth" paradigm espoused by Green Economics thinkers such as Herman Daly, which posits that economic growth achieved through increasing natural resources consumption can not continue indefinitely.
The author's education, work and multi-cultural life experiences combine to produce a nuanced, thoughtful and mature work that should intrigue readers interested in political theory and the environment. /1856496007.html   (1261 words)

As I have already contended, there are differing forms of anarchism, which can reflect differences in modes of association, such as the difference between anarcho-syndicalism and its basis in urban settings and the trade-union movement and eco-anarchism, which advocates small-scale, decentralised communities and cooperation and harmony with nature.
Anarchism is a philosophy which tends to regard people as having certain intrinsic qualities, such as cooperation, for example Alexander Berkman in The ABC of Anarchy (1929). /vof/versions/michelle.htm   (3401 words)

Eco and cultural deconstruction If one examines capi­ talist feminism, one is faced with a choice: either reject semi­ oticist appropriation or conclude that the raison d'etre of the poet is significant form, given that the premise of cultural de­ construction is valid.

2.) In Eco’s point number two (“Traditionalism implies the rejection of modernism....”), the problems of differentiation between Mussolini’s regime from 1922 to 1937, from 1938 to 1942, the Repubblica Sociale Italiana (RSI) from 1943 to 1945, the NSDAP regime, and a great many other variants of National Socialism and Fascism become pronounced.
Eco is attempting to refute an ideology by pointing out its supposed characteristics, while making very little effort to show how it relates to the theorists, regimes, and parties of the many European nations that had such an ideological current.
9.) Eco’s imaginary “Ur-Fascists” desire a state of “permanent war.” Of course, as long as this planet is characterized by diverse populations competing for an ever-shrinking pool of resources and land in the face of rising populations, international conflict is unavoidable. /printer.php?id=2805   (728 words)

 Red Square 2
The Anarchist concept of democracy is not political representative or limited in an economic reductionist manner to ''workplaces''.
Ensuring that the free organisation of social and economic tasks works in such a way as to not harm the eco-sphere, does not imply the need for laws, bureaucracies or paramilitary institutions (i.e police) to ''enforce'' ecological sustainability.
The social basis of democracy in an anarchist-socialist society are the cooperative workplaces.   (728 words)

 Appendix - The Symbols of Anarchy
This is unsurprising as anarchism is a form of socialism and came out of the general socialist and labour movements.
However, in spite of these uses of the red-and-black flag in the late 1870s, it seems to have fallen into disuse and it was only with the founding of the CNT over 30 years later in Spain that it was used again on a wide scale.
Given the clear links and similarities between the collectivist anarchism of the First International (the most famous advocate of which was Bakunin) and anarcho-syndicalism, it is not surprising that they used similar symbols. /faq/append2.html   (5530 words)

 Paulo Freire and Eco-Justice: Updating Pedagogy of the Oppressed for the Age of Ecological Calamity by Richard Kahn
Again, all this is not to say, therefore, that Marx's socialism fails as a critique of capitalist society's inability to effectively employ the forces of production, or that Freire's pedagogy is a dreamy farce.
New advances in capitalist lifestyle and practice are then directly responsible for grave exacerbations of widespread poverty and environmental destruction; and in many ways, the exploitation of the environment and of the poor by the rich has come to be integrated so as to be part of one process -- the globalization of technocapitalsm.
Situations in which a cultural group has been under colonial rule, when the internal cultural patterns organize the distribution of wealth and political power in ways that subject part of the population to poverty, and when traditions of gender and age bias are restrictive and denigrating. /ecofreire.htm   (3457 words)

 Environment, Capitalism and Socialism
However, given the domination of mid to late 20th century political and economic theory by positivism (in the advanced capitalist world) and vulgar "Marxism" (in the Stalinist-ruled countries), it was inevitable that the revival of ecological thinking could only find expression in a re-emergence of idealist, even directly religious, modes of thought.
The difference today, given the rise of ecological science, is that these metaphors acquire a pseudo-scientific colouration: "laws" of nature are converted into "laws" of social organisation and development or models of ecologically sustainable communities.
While opposing the now discredited position that the market can of itself guarantee a safe and clean environment, this approach argues that the market economy, regulated and adjusted by an appropriate mix of taxes and subsidies, is able to achieve the best result. /dsp/ECS/Chapter4.htm   (4941 words)

However, the fatal flaw, and subsequent dialectic, of capitalist socialism intrinsic to is also evident in, although in a more dialectic sense.
Neocapitalist feminism states that consciousness is used to exploit the underprivileged, but only if Baudrillard's essay on dialectic capitalism is valid; otherwise, Lacan's model of precapitalist discourse is one of "dialectic discourse", and therefore part of the economy of sexuality.
However, Sontag's analysis of capitalist capitalism states that the State is capable of truth. /n/77wap.html   (532 words)

Community Based Economics: A Real Alternative to Eco-socialism?
According to its supporters, such as myself, community-based socialism (CBS) would have room for small businesses (though none for corporations), and would be based primarily on small workers' cooperatives.
Today, many Green "populists" are for "community-based economics." What does that mean? /library/doc0.asp?docid=1G1:71200501&refid=ink_tptd_mag   (159 words)

 Green-Libertarian Politics and Theory
The goal of eco-libertarian theorizing is merely to determine which political system is the correct one; in this respect it does not differ from most political theorizing.
The preceding renders an environmentalist form of socialism in terms of procedural principles (as opposed to distributive or utilitarian principles), so that it can be "mixed and matched" with other libertarian positions; libertarianism, whatever the school, is based on a strictly procedural conception of justice.
The problem is that the most natural names for this philosophy have been consistently used by other groups: "Socialist-Libertarian" is used by Noam Chomsky and his groupies, and "Eco-Libertarian" tends to denote the position that the environment will be adequately protected by a system of strong property rights and no government regulation. /~bsharvy/ecolibparty.html   (424 words)

In the long term, the Plan was a substitute for the abandoned socialist aim of restructuring society: since the structures of the national economy remained untouched, it became in the event the life-belt of capitalism.
De Man's Plan du Travail, which became the official policy of the Belgian Workers' party, envisaged a mixed economy in which 'political power would be used to create the eco-
'I believe, to sum up,' de Man wrote, 'that the socialism of the generation to come will be, under penalty of total collapse, as different from that of our fathers as [that] was from the socialism that preceded the communist manifesto. /Dept/PS/Finley/PS425/reading/Sternhell.html   (15090 words)

To perpetuate the historical shift of anarchism from a largely ethical form of socialism (in its most generic sense) to anarcho-syndicalism--a largely economistic form of socialism most often premised on the factory structure--would be, in my view, highly regressive.
Certainly not all anarcho- syndicalists would be unsympathetic to, say, eco- anarchism or a communitarian anarchism that is concerned with confederations of villages, towns, and cities, but a degree of dogmatism and stodgy fixity persists among worker- oriented anarchists that I believe should hardly be characteristic of left libertarians generally.
Whether or not the full "socialization" (that is, CNT control) of the collectivized factories and enterprises would have obviated the highly centralized economic tendency within the CNT, however syndicalistic, is arguable. /Anarchist_Archives/bookchin/ghost2.html   (7180 words)

 National Review: Worldwatch watch - Worldwatch Institute's policy is harmful to human welfare
Instead, a review of the last four years of this staff-written magazine--which "seek[s] to change the course of history" and which the Institute inflicts on the publics of five other countries in addition to the United States--reveals a utopian ecosocialist world view quite as hostile to human welfare as traditional socialism has ever been.
THE Worldwatch Institute exists, in its own words, to "save the planet," a miracle it is accomplishing by raising the public consciousness of the need "to create an environmentally sustainable global economy." The Institute, led by Lester R. Brown, is one of the more influential and reputable of environmentalist policy organizations.
Actually, I thought the staff had finally slipped its leash on this one until, flipping through a recent National Geographic, I saw a nostalgic and moving plea to save the glaciers in southern British Columbia, and realized World Watch is just following the eco-fads of the Nineties. /p/articles/mi_m1282/is_n7_v46/ai_15318970   (1199 words)

 Environment, Capitalism and Socialism
Even less does it mean that struggles around urban environmental and working conditions, like those of the New South Wales Builders Labourers Federation under Jack Mundey (the "green bans" movement), and eco-production alternatives like those developed by the Lucas Aerospace Combined Unions Committee, aren't essential in pointing the way forward.
Indeed, initiatives such as the US Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers' proposal for an employer- and government-financed Superfund to underpin the conversion or closure of the polluting industries in which OCAW members typically work is an example for the union movement everywhere.
Nor does it mean that the struggle for our environment doesn't begin locally, nor that environmental repair and development can't and shouldn't be advanced at the level of local governments, cooperatives and sometimes entire regions — even while state power is still in the hands of the ruling rich. /dsp/ECS/index.htm   (1199 words)

 Workers and greenies unite
Mundey said that “eco-socialism” was the only way forward because capitalism, even in its most “advanced” form, is predatory.
Mundey spoke about the significance of urban environmental issues and why a worker-environmentalist alliance is important: 70% of Australia's population live in urban areas.
Mundey applauded the emergence of Earthworker and praised attempts to incorporate a larger number of unions into environmental campaigns. /back/1999/363/363p4c.htm   (1199 words) - An Anarchist FAQ - A.3 What types of anarchism are there?
Simply put, it is hardly "people" who are to blame when the vast majority have no real say in the decisions that affect their lives, communities, industries and eco-systems.
Hence the prerequisite of an anarchist revolution is a period of consciousness-raising in which people gradually become aware of submissive/authoritarian traits within themselves, see how those traits are reproduced by conditioning, and understand how they can be mitigated or eliminated through new forms of culture, particularly new child-rearing and educational methods.
If a group of people wanted to form such a system then they could, just as we would expect a community which supported state socialism or theocracy to live under that regime. /faq/secA3.html   (16851 words)
