In his social ecological response to the spiritually inspired platform of Deep Ecology, Murray Bookchin writes: “…it is absolutely inconceivable that present-day heirarchical and particularly capitalist society could establish a non-domineering and ethically symbiotic relationship bewteen itself and the natural world.”  Sometimes the patriarchal view that is intertwined with capitalistic environmental exploitation is traced to traditional Middle Eastern Religions  (i.e.the Trio). This is yet another unquestioned world view paradigm that has held so much sway over us that we fail to see that it is our fundamental attitude towards Nature that needs to be adjusted.
