Orion Magazine | Dark Ecology; A weird article

I reblog this six year old blog from a Cumbrian poet and scythe, not because I agree with it – I don’t – but because it shows a nihilistic turn of some environmentalists.This is seen by the author looking to the Unabomber who murdered 3 people before being caught in 1996 and is now in jail with no hope of parole. Not a moral inspiration.

Dark Ecology is gaining traction in some circles  – including among Christians who are supposed to have HOPE.

My feeling is that Dark Ecology lies behind some of what is going on today.

I was guided to this on the A Rocha international FB page  https://www.facebook.com/pg/arocha.international/posts/

It has six likes and one not with favourable comment

Read it and mark it, but don’t digest it.

    I got as far as “4. What is needed is a new revolutionary movement, dedicated to the elimination of technological society.” Elimination of the technological society would reduce the Earth’s carrying capacity by a factor of around a thousand. And we’re supposed to take this seriously?
