  1. Recently I wrote a blog entry offering a leftist critique of the ideology of “Green” environmentalism, deep ecology, eco-feminism, and lifestyle politics in general (veganism, “dumpster diving,” “buying organic,” “locavorism,” etc.). I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the matter and any responses you might have to its criticisms.

    • Greetings Ross,

      you asked me to comment on your article. First I suggest you read my post “the local movement compromised”

      Personally I don’t think the “green movement issue” is too important, because the individual is where “it’s” at… when we look at a “movements” we are generalizing, we are not seeing the individual and the hearts behind the individuals. More importantly we must focus our energy on informing ourselves of the roots and history of ecology and ethical economy which are inseparable. A book I would recommend is Hinduism and Ecology by Ranchor Prime – also I recommend learning Permaculture from an experienced teachers. We must tread carefully on how much energy we put into criticism, our energy is our power… How to invest it?? Peace to you, VT4Evolution
