sustainability is the capacity to endure

according to murray bookchin, the idea that humans must dominate nature is common in hierarchical societies. bookchin contends that capitalism and market relationships, if unchecked, have the capacity to reduce the planet to a mere resource to be exploited. nature is thus treated as a commodity: “the plundering of the human spirit by the market place is paralleled by the plundering of the earth by capital.”
