Social ecologySocial Ecology
is a coherent radical critique of current social, political, and anti-ecological trends. It claims to be a reconstructive, ecological, communitarian, and ethical approach to society. Social Ecology is a radical view of scientific ecology
and of social/political systems, e.g. those within which Green Parties
Social Ecologists believe that the current ecological crisis is the product of capitalism. They believe it is not the number of people, but the way people relate to one another that has fueled the current economic crisis. Over-consumption, productivism and consumerism are thus symptoms, not causes, of a deeper issue with ethical relationships.
