Rather than address the ever proliferating crises produced by market fundamentalism as an opportunity to understand how the United States has arrived at such a point in order to change direction, the dominating classes now use such crises as an excuse for normalizing a growing punishing and warfare state, while consolidating the...

Ecological World Views

By HYDER OWAINATI  Published May 1, 2012 Exploring an Environmental Mindset In explaining my worldview on the environment I must first explicitly state that the core principle of my perspective involves acknowledging the fact that there is a severe environmental problem currently being faced attributed solely to human activities.
