Marx & Nature, Marx’s Ecology, Our eco-Socialism
Is Gov’t wayside for military-Hegemony/decadence? This has been the question which was answered when School-of-Assassins was found to be usury to ‘death-Squads’ in central-Americas–1981. At that time, SANE- FREEZE was parabling peace thru distillations of nuclearism and militaryist-Policy that had coupled w coRpoRatist-Banking to maintain the new-Rome. The we-Boomers had not maintained for the onslaught, and I was mainlining research and study onto NSDU-238 stats as-much-as-possible. The empire’s sexism and racism was openly being put-down, at last. Also, the sterilization aspects of imprisoning indige-Amers for feudalist doctoring was being exposed, and Ecology had blossomed into a household word, oNLY to become diabolicalized into put-Off words such as “environmentalism”!
Many four-year drunken University graduates were onto slurban-Sprawl and decimation of forests, but their futility was renown as don’t hang at that bar i.e. no windows toward the parken areas. Decadence and Ecology deformations by governance couples w non-Reading dumb-fools who are gaga teevee couch potatoes, working-Fools or not! “R”
“Marx and Nature: A Red and Green Perspective By Paul Burkett, Foreword by John Bellamy Foster paperback, June 2014 $20.00
If I say I was excited to see that, I’m understating my reaction. I’m thrilled. It’s beyond excellent that Marx and Nature is being republished, and at an affordable price. Every ecosocialist should plan to buy a copy.
Burkett’s book was published in hardcover edition in 1999, but for some reason the original publisher (St. Martin’s Press) let it go out of print years ago. Used copies are very difficult to obtain — there are currently only four listed on ABEbooks.com, all priced well over $100, and one over $400.
John Bellamy Foster’s indispensable book, Marx’s Ecology, was published one year after Burkett’s. In the Preface, Foster wrote:
“Paul Burkett’s magisterial work Marx and Nature: A Red and Green Perspective (1999) constitutes not only part of the background against which this work was written, but also an essential complement to the analysis provided here. If I have sometimes neglected to develop fully the political-economic aspects of Marx’s ecology, it is because the existence of this work makes this unnecessary and redundant.”
Together, Foster’s Marx’s Ecology and Burkett’s Marx and Nature convincingly showed that Marxism was not the anti-environmental ideology that some green writers and even some Marxists believe. As Burkett put it, Marxism is not opposed to environmentalism but is “a particular kind of environmentalism, one that considers people-nature relations from the standpoint of class relations and the requirements of human emancipation.”
Foster showed that a profound concern for people-nature relations is at the heart of Marx’s philosophical and scientific views; Burkett showed that the same is true of his political economy. They fully complement each other, with very little overlap: having both available again will fill a major gap on many ecosocialists’ bookshelves.”
Haymarket has good news for ecosocialists

Oftentimes we feel the vise closing in and the walls won’t come down, but Tyranny raises the ugli-Scape head, as the dRagon parables “non-Existence” billowing flames of instant-Destruction. Life, liberty, pursuit of greed and puissance has lots of enmity. The diabolical somethingy-bop tells me the phraseology has been corrupted. Look into words that your own consciousness alter-Ego might lame atop your shoulder w.o. whispering into your phoney Machiavelli wordage paragon list, and I’ll state point blank, you’re using the plutocracy-Dictionary. Many idiopathics have now been lost to the new-Rome’s militarism. There is no consolescence w the futility-making Imperialist empire. Period. “R”
“tO Rep. Diane Degette: OPEN Letter e-Mailed 3-08-14
Being a professional person since 1968, I am very upset w these “endless, damnable, mass-civilian killing, wars” and other convolutions that needed transparency and problem solving i.e. not brushed to wayside for military-Hegemony/decadence.
I have not heard a PEEP from any government elected congress-person regarding CHEM tRails and the fact that the Life of soils, water, and Humanity is morosely laminated w ‘aluminum-Oxide, strontium-90 (Radionuclide) and stearate-Barium’ makes me feel like 1961, when we high-schoolers were told, incorrectly, we-Boomers would have Medicare, by 1963. When will H.A.A.R.P. be exposed for the heinous “weapon of mass annihilation” that not-so-Depleted ur-238 also is?
All of US Congress had best answer to each of these factors of social-Economic and physical-Health demarcations–a.s.a.p.!
Serious planet-Earth by aero-Jets (pollutions, contaminations, laminations from decades abusing our Erath’s oxygenate), and by Daiichi’s UN-controllable is also on my list of needing to be attended by all of US Congress.

Can we Fallujah around w you for new-Improved IMpunity of the new-Rome? That question should have been asked before day-one finished in Baghdad March 19th 2003. NSDU-238 made great noise, and flash and blam comprisals enhanced “shock and fucking AWE”. Next, annum, Fallujah was attacked w weapons of mass-Annihilation in the formula of NSDU-238. The CHEM tRails overhead around the world had it’s foundation for continued abuse of arable lands, waters, Humanity, at last. Such human-Life negating and ignominy has not been seen since gas-ovens of and under Third Reich mass-murder kitchens. The new-Rome is simple an egregious “statism-State” and this compounds the liberty and freedom’s guaranteed under the three federal laws. As I read beneath the lines, the world is primarily rushing ‘head-long’ into the Neanderthal Age, once again. “R”
“Researchers were initially regarded with some suspicion by locals, particularly after a Baghdad television station broadcast a report saying a survey was being carried out by terrorists and anybody conducting it or answering questions would be arrested. Those organising the survey subsequently arranged to be accompanied by a person of standing in the community to allay suspicions.
The study, entitled “Cancer, Infant Mortality and Birth Sex-Ratio in Fallujah, Iraq 2005-2009,” is by Dr Busby, Malak Hamdan and Entesar Ariabi, and concludes that anecdotal evidence of a sharp rise in cancer and congenital birth defects is correct. Infant mortality was found to be 80 per 1,000 births compared to 19 in Egypt, 17 in Jordan and 9.7 in Kuwait. The report says that the types of cancer are “similar to that in the Hiroshima survivors who were exposed to ionising radiation from the bomb and uranium in the fallout.”
“By Patrick Cockburn The Independent, July 24, 2010
Dramatic increases in infant mortality, cancer and leukaemia in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, which was bombarded by US Marines in 2004, exceed those reported by survivors of the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, according to a new study.
Iraqi doctors in Fallujah have complained since 2005 of being overwhelmed by the
number of babies with serious birth defects, ranging from a girl born with two heads to paralysis of the lower limbs. They said they were also seeing far more cancers than they did before the battle for Fallujah between US troops and insurgents.
Their claims have been supported by a survey showing a four-fold increase in all cancers and a 12-fold increase in childhood cancer in under-14s. Infant mortality in the city is more than four times higher than in neighbouring Jordan and eight times higher than in Kuwait.
Dr Chris Busby, a visiting professor at the University of Ulster and one of the authors of the survey of 4,800 individuals in Fallujah, said it is difficult to pin down the exact cause of the cancers and birth defects. He added that “to produce an effect like this, some very major mutagenic exposure must have occurred in 2004 when the attacks happened.”
US Marines first besieged and bombarded Fallujah, 30 miles west of Baghdad, in April 2004 after four employees of the American security company Blackwater were killed and their bodies burned. After an eight-month stand-off, the Marines stormed the city in November using artillery and aerial bombing against rebel positions. US forces later admitted that they had employed white phosphorus as well as other munitions.”
