“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Harris's essay is very thought-provoking. It manages to open up the question of politics with regard to ecology and #OOO in an interesting way. Generally it seems as though the question (what to do?) is asked exclusively within the Marxist context, and therefore a lot of potential answers are marked out of bounds in advance.
