Deep Ecology

Deep Ecology

In 1973, Norwegian philosopher and mountaineer Arne Næss introduced the phrase deep ecology to environmental literature in the short essay “The Shallow and the Deep, Long-Range Ecology Movement: A Summary” (1973). Deep Ecology is rooted in Eastern religion and philosophies with an emphasis on respect for all living beings, nonviolence, self-realization and closeness to wild nature. Deep ecology foundation historically based upon the view of Gandhi but most of all Mahayana Buddhism. Deep ecology offers a corrective against the (related) dominant Western, modern views that the human species is separate from nonhuman nature and that human individuals are in any sense unconnected from other living beings (other humans included).

Ecology’s core principle is the belief that, like humanity, the living environment as a whole has the same right to live and flourish. Deep ecology and followers talk about four problems that rooted in the following circumstances modern society suffers from the loss of traditional knowledge, values and ethics behavior that does not even know what we eat as animals repacked, draped in boxes so you have no feelings that you eat animals.  There is a culture of owning the place you live and the land. All native people from Aboriginals to the North American Indians have always stated land cannot own. We think that nature is here to serve us and not the other way around so instead of having an organic approach to nature and follow the stream we try to tame nature. We think us superior to nature and the strong. However, in fact, nature is fine-tuned and there is not much before we get in unbalanced and lose control.
