"The market economy is replacing a complex organic
environment with a simplified inorganic one, literally
dissembling a biosphere that has supported humanity for
countless millennia. In the course of replacing the complex
ecological relationships, on which all living things depend,
with more elementary ones, capitalism is restoring the
biosphere to a stage where it will be able to support only
simpler forms of life. ... The earth will become incapable of
supporting humanity itself." [Bookchin 1980:230-1]
