Murray Bookchin Quotes

The assumption that what currently exists must necessarily exist is the acid that corrodes all visionary thinking.

Murray Bookchin

The ecological principle of unity in diversity grades into a richly mediated social principle; hence my use of the term social ecology.

Murray Bookchin

Capitalism is a social cancer. It has always been a social cancer. It is the disease of society. It is the malignancy of society.

Murray Bookchin

If we do not do the impossible, we shall be faced with the unthinkable.

Murray Bookchin

To speak of 'limits to growth' under a capitalistic market economy is as meaningless as to speak of limits of warfare under a warrior society. The moral pieties, that are voiced today by many well-meaning environmentalists, are as naive as the moral pieties of multinationals are manipulative. Capitalism can no more be 'persuaded' to limit growth than a human being can be 'persuaded' to stop breathing. Attempts to 'green' capitalism, to make it 'ecological', are doomed by the very nature of the system as a system of endless growth.

Murray Bookchin

Our Being is Becoming, not stasis. Our Science is Utopia, our Reality is Eros, our Desire is Revolution.

Murray Bookchin

An anarchist society, far from being a remote ideal, has become a precondition for the practice of ecological principles.
