Social Ecology

Social Ecology is reconstructive, ecological, communitarian, and ethical. It advocates a transformative outlook on social and environmental issues and promotes direct democracy. It envisions a moral economy that moves beyond scarcity and hierarchy, towards a world that reharmonizes human communities with nature, while celebrating diversity, creativity and freedom.

Social ecology argues that the hierarchical domination of nature by human stems from the hierarchical domination of human by human.
