Social Ecology and Communalism

Communalism Logo: A black star outlined in red enclosed in a brown wheel with green spokes Communalism is a system of government in which virtually autonomous local communities are brought together in a confederation under the principles and practice of communal ownership. Social Ecology is its recognition of the often-overlooked fact that nearly all our present ecological problems arise from deep-seated social problems.

Dialectical Naturalism

Eco-Socialism Logo: A yellow circle outlined in red with green leaves encircling it like flower petals Dialectical naturalism is the philosophical underpinning of social ecology. Through dialectical naturalism we reason the evolutionary becoming of the biological world or “first nature”, the emergence of the realm of culture or “second nature”, and the potentiality for “free nature”—a rational and ecological society.

The History of Hierarchy

Anarcho-Primitivism Logo: A letter A enclosed in a circle that is half black and half green. A spear shape points up in the middle of the A. From dialectical analysis we can deduce a history of hierarchy, which traces the emergence of hierarchy from the rise of government by elders, the emergence of patriarchy, shamanistic guilds, warrior groups, chiefdoms, and eventually the state.

Ecological Critique

Post-Scarcity Anarchism Logo: A windmill shape enclosed in a circle that is half yellow and half black With history for evidence, an ecological critique finds that the idea of dominating nature emerges from the domination of human by human. Economic, ethnic, cultural, and gender conflicts, among many others, lie at the core of the most serious ecological problems we face today. Minimally, an ecological society must eliminate the domination of human by human.

Libertarian Municipalism

Libertarian Municipalism Logo: Connected groups of multicoloured people surround red hands that reach up to grab yellow triangles We develop a political strategy, from ecological critique, for a libertarian municipalist society - organised as a confederation of directly democratic municipal assemblies, production would be municipalised and brought under the control of the assemblies, and the market economy would be replaced with a moral economy.

Utopian Vision

Communism Logo: A red star with a grey gear between its top and left points, green leaves between its top and right points and sun beams against a blue sky below it Seeking to reconstruct society both physically and institutionally, this utopianism includes practical experiments and alternative technology.
