A New Declaration
“On a finite planet you cannot have an economy based on or requiring growth”
By Derrick Jensen The Occupied Wall Street Journal 12 February, 2012
We hold these truths to be self-evident:
That the real, physical world is the source of our own lives, and the lives of others. A weakened planet is less capable of supporting life, human or otherwise.
Thus the health of the real world is primary, more important than any social or economic system, because all social or economic systems are dependent upon a living planet.
