Strictly speaking, an ecologist is a scientist usually a biologist who studies the interrelationships between organisms and their environments.

Scientific ecologists, to the extent that they want to appear respectable, may be quite anthropocentric in their day to day behavior; deep ecologists, on the other hand, are explicitly biocentric or at least try to be. To many people, an "ecologist" is simply an environment- alist, or someone who unlike Hayduke picks up bottles and cans along roadsides Fve seen garbage trucks labeled "Ecology Dept. Some self-labeled environ- mentalists have added to the confusion by misinter- preting what ecology fundamentally means, and using it as a buzzword for various political goals.

More disturbing to me, as a professional ecologist sensitive to people's lack of appreciation of ecology, is that environmentalists are often antagonistic toward science and scientists in general, not just toward manipulative science and technology. Some openly suggest that scientists are the enemy, and have nothing positive to offer the environmental movement. For example, in planning a recent Green Conference in Florida, organizers went out of their way to assure that no scientific ecologists were involved. When I criticized the program of the conference which featured anti-deep ecologist Ynestra King as a keynote speaker and asked why no ecologists had been invited to speak, the con- ference organizer responded that if I meant by "ecolo- gist," the "professional, biological scientist type," then he saw no need for that kind of person to speak at a conference for activists.

I admit I feel a little uneasy about being called a scientist But a woman or man crouched in the forest, keying-out and admiring a fungus or recording details of bird behavior, is every bit as much of a scientist as the experimenter in the laboratory. And the lab scientist, too, may contribute invaluable information toward our understanding of how Nature works. I suggest that science phobia is often misguided, and that ecological science is a constructive approach to knowing Nature. By itself, science may be neither necessary nor suflScient to understand Nature, but it is one of the best tools we have.

Deep ecologists and other environmentalists would do well to consider more thoughtfully what the Way of Ecology offers, both as a science and as a worldview. The science of ecology developed from natural history, the lore of Nature. Since Charles Darwin, this lore has been infused with concepts of interdependence, interrelationship, and co-adaption — indeed, it was Darwin's thoroughly scientific theory of evolution that made ecology possible.

Evolution made sense out of natural history; facts heretofore disconnected became interacting components of general patterns that could be explained in a rational and convincing way. Further- more, elements in Darwin's theory were empirically testable — the hallmark of science. Unlike religious beliefs, scientific hypotheses are designed to be discarded if they no longer accord with observations. Much hogwash persists in science, but honest scientists do their best to weed it out.

The subject of ecology is Nature, which has developed in all its beauty through organic evolution and is a vast web of interactions more complex than humans can ever fully comprehend. As ecologist Frank Euler has pointed out, "Nature is not only more complex than we think, but more complex than we can ever think. Although ecological com- plexity can never and some would add, should never be fully quantified, the study of complex interactions — ecology — produces overwhelming respect for the whole in all who approach it sensitively.

In becoming scientific, natural history did not degenerate into mechanism, but rather matured into holism while retaining the proven techniques of mechanistic science. EstabUshing facts through observ- ation, experiment, and other reductionist methods, ecology unites them and integrates them into broad, general theories, into wholes greater than the sum of their parts. The wholes theories are there all along, of course, guiding the collection of data and providing context for facts. As Stephen Jay Gould has pointed out, facts do not speak for themselves, but are read in the light of theory.

Perhaps most important to deep ecologists, ecology and evolutionary biology demon- strate unequivocally that humans are just one ephemeral component of an interrelated and interdependent biota. Ecology and evolutionary biology place us firmly within Nature, not on top of it. Natural science is explicitly non-anthropocentric, even though many of its practitioners are still stuck in anthropocentric modes of thought. Scientists, such as Jared Diamond, who have become familiar with taxonomies developed by indigenous cultures i. The differences usually involve those plants and animals that are not used directly for food, clothing, ornamentation, drugs, and other human purposes.

These "useless" species tend to be "lumped;" thus, fewer distinctions and fewer species may be recognized by indigenous cultures than by scientific taxonomists. Indigenous people, Uke everyone else, have a utiUtarian bias that has been naturally selected to foster their survival. For iiiis reason, they have developed a taxonomy that is anthropocentric compared to that of biology, which seeks to classify all organisms with equivalent precision, regardless of their utility to humans.

This is not to deny that most research money in biology is channeled into anthropocentric research e. Natural science is explicitly non- anthropocentric, even though many of its practitioners are still stuck in anthropocentric modes of thought. Ecologists, as scientists, devote their Uves to studying, and hopefully understanding, how Nature works. These people love the Earth. As the British entomologist Miriam Rothschild remarked, "For someone studying natural history, life can never be long enough. Direct experience, contemplation, meditation, and simply the ecstasy of being immersed in wilderness are equally viable approaches, and, in fact, provide many ecologists with the inspiration they need to carry on.

These spontaneous or mystical experiences are accessible to scientist and non-scientist aUke. Nothing in my profes- sional code of conduct as an ecologist says that I cannot run naked and whooping with joy through the desert, or sit all day and stare at a rock. When I am actively engaged in research, of course, these particular activities may not be appropriate, but only because they may bias my results for example, by scaring away all the fauna.

These Continued on next page 1 7 approaches, complementary and intertwined as yin and yang, are both essential to holistic understanding. Aldo Leopold, my favorite deep ecologist, was able to carry his message so powerfully because he had the sensitivity of a poet and the objectivity of a scientist. He communicated in the hard, factual language of science, sprinkled with brilliant, experiential metaphors in the finest tradition of Nature essays. Virtually every faction within the environmental, ecosophical, and resource management fields claims old Aldo for its own, yet few people seem to comprehend the more radical, biocentric notions he developed gradually through his life, and articulated late in his career.

Because he could write so damn well and is appreciated by so many people of such divergent woridviews, Leopold provides deep ecologists with an avenue along which to lead others toward biocentric understanding. If yin and yang, intuition and rationality, emotion and thought, right brain and left brain are complementary, then so too are deep ecology and scientific ecology.

It may be their relationship is mutualistic: they need each other. Don't judge scientific ecology from your experi- ence that most ecologists or scientists, generally are anthropocentric jerks. Most philosophers, accountants, lawyers, farmers, and television repairmen are anthropo- centric jerks, too. At least ecology, "the subversive science," has a biocentric, holistic underpinning, which cannot be said for most other disciplines.

If most scientific ecologists are not deep ecologists, it is because they have yet to grasp the radical implications of their science. If most deep ecologists are not scientific ecologists, then perhaps it would behoove them to explore natural history, evolution, and ecology. You don't need a college degree to be a good ecologist, though it helps, because it compels exposure to the cumulative knowledge of others through textbooks, journals, and symposia.

It is no accident that many ecologists and field biologists are somewhat crude, wild-eyed, and uncivil- ized, or to put it simply — "earthy. The true biologist deals with life, with teeming, boisterous life, and learns something from it. Feel it, explore it, examine it, think about it. Rational analysis and direct intuition do not conflict — you need both and your brain is built by natural selection to do both.

It is your Nature. If science, in the form of the "new sciences" of ecology, evolutionary biology, and quantum mechanics, is capable of reinserting humans into Nature by enlarging the self to include the whole biosphere — "the world is my body" Alan Watts — then perhaps we have come full circle. We began as primitives, relatively un-self-conscious and inseparable from the ecosystem; we evolved into calculating, rational beings, becoming more and more alienated from our real home; we developed other-worldly religions to place us above other life-forms, and dualistic reductionist science to ascribe mechanism to all of Nature; but then we developed new forms of science that put us, surprisingly but objectively, right back where we began and where we belong: as Earth-animals.

Jobs and money are scarce for ecologists, and appearing radical and unscientific is usually a one- way ticket to poverty or ob- scurity. Most scientists don't want to think or, at least, talk openly about such things, or feel they cannot do so without jeopardizing their scientific credibility and, therefore, their careers. Jobs and money are scarce for ecologists, and appearing radical and unscientific is usually a one-way ticket to poverty or obscurity.

This does not excuse ecologists from active involvement in defending the Earth, but their hesitation is understand- able. Deep ecologists must encourage scientific ecolo- gists to get involved in saving that which they study. The battle to defend the Earth needs warriors who specialize in determining what the war is being fought over, what it takes to save what we have, and how we might be able to put it all back together again.

This essay was written in as a submission to the now-defunct Nerthus. Reprinted from Earth First! Long An Excerpt from Harold S. Since they take your personal clothing when you come through the Receiving Center, it would not be unreasonable to say that by the time you get to your first cell, all you really have is your birthday suit.

It is a plaguing situation, both mentally and physically, and the new inmate must make numerous adjustments to a completely unfamiliar lifestyle. It would not be inaccurate to say that most convicts DO their time. They live in the thick of the goings on around them, and put little or no time into developmental efforts. Aside from keeping your eyes and ears open for potentially hazardous situations, do not concern yourself with the affairs of others. Your sentence is the only one you have to do.

Don't try to do anyone else's. Steer clear of organized gangs and drugs. Both will eventually lead you into confrontations with the administration and with the prisoner contingent. A great many incidents of violence occur over the exchange of drugs, and the game is every bit as dirty within the walls as it is on the streets.

Gangs have one leader; the rest are followers. Before you decide to follow a man, be sure he's going to lead you where you're trying to go. Both will eventually lead you into confrontations with the adminis- tration and with the prisoner contingent. Your playing the part of the male and the homosexual playing the part of the female leaves no distinction between you once you have consummated a sexual act together.

Look the word up in the dictionary if you want this clarified any fiirther. But if you believe an individual is going to try to harm you, take him dowii first. It is too easy to be caught off guard and get stabbed in the back or piped in the head from behind. Those kinds of chances you cannot take.

Of greatest importance, take a long and serious look at yourself. You're at the bottom of the barrel. You've fucked your life up so badly as to fall into the clutches of people who couldn't give a shit less if you Uve, die, or get yourself killed, nor do they give a damn if you ever hit the streets again or do anything to help yourself in the meantime.

Do something for yourself. Get whatever education is available to you, and set and pursue goals that will benefit your future. You're going to be locked up and out of circulation anyway, so USE the time. Make it work for you. Study, grow, and achieve. Use the years to increase your knowledge and understanding, and with this increase, plan and develop a successful future. It's easy to fall into the "Fuck it" attitude and throw the years away. Life is short as it is. Don't let the years waste away.

Make them become a benefit rather than a burden. You've fucked your life up so badly as to fall into the clutches of people who couldn't give a shit less if you live, die, or get yourself killed. Men die in prison from being improperiy treated for medical conditions, and sometimes from not being treated at all. Exercise regulariy to maintain your body strength and retain as much of your youth as possible.

Always inspect your food before eating it. Beyond these things, guard your thoughts and your feelings to keep from making your time harder. Expect nothing from anyone and you'll never be disappointed. Exercise great care in choosing friends and associates. If they are not motivated in a positive direction, avoid them. They will tax your efforts in a multitude of ways. Finally, respect yourself. Let neither man nor beast make you think any less of yourself. No man is better than another, for we are all the work of God and have a place in the world.

Confront your weaknesses, build them strong, and rise from the oppressions you are about to endure, and know that the strong will survive and return with greater wisdom. The weak will perish physically. The lucky will make it through the maze, but will have accomplished nothing and will be on their way back even as their feet cross the threshold of the outermost gate back into the free world. With belated notice taken of a crisis in the workplace, the consultants surge forth with faddish reforms whose common denominator is that they excite little interest in the work- place itself.

Done to — not won by — the workers, they are very much business as usual for business. Changing the place of work to the home is like emigrating from Romania to Ethiopia in search of a better life. Flextime is for professionals who, as the office joke goes, can work any sixty hours a week they like. It is not for the service sector where the greatest numbers toil; it will not do for fry cooks to flex their prerogatives at the lunch hour nor bus drivers at rush hour. Job enrichment is part pep rally, part painkiller — uplift and aspirin.

Even workers' control, which most American managers find unthinkable, is only self-managed servitude, like letting prisoners elect their own guards. For Western employers as for outgoing Eastern European dictators, glasnost and perestroika are too little and too late. Measures that would have been applauded by 19th century socialist and anarchist militants indeed, that's whom they were cribbed from by the consultants at best 22 First published in Main Catalog Continued on next page meet now with sullen indifference, and at worst are taken as signs of weakness.

Espe- cially for American bosses, relatively backward in management style as in other ways, concessions would only arouse expec- tations they cannot fulfill and yet remain in charge.

Survival Gear List: 101 Top Suggestions from our readers.

The democracy movements world- wide have swept away the small fry. The only enemy is the common enemy. The workplace is the last bastion of authoritar- ian coercion. Disenchantment with work runs as deeply here as disenchantment with Communism in the East. Indeed many were not all that enchanted to begin with. Why did they submit? Why do we? We have no choice. Were it other- wise, there would be no market for tranqui- lizers like job redesign or job enrichment. The worker at work, as to a tragic extent off the job, is passive-aggressive. Not for him the collective solidarity heroics of labor's past.

What if there was a general strike — and it proved permanent because it made no demands, it was already the satisfaction of all demands? There was a time the unions could have thwarted anything like that, but they don't count anymore. Do not even the consultants and the techno-futurologists at their most fantastic take work for granted? Indeed they do, which is reason enough to be skeptical. They never yet foresaw the future that came to pass.

They prophesied moving sidewalks and single-famUy air-cars, not computers and recombinant DNA. Their American Century was Japanese before it was half over. Futurologists are always wrong because they are only extrapolators, the limit of their vision is more of the same — although history the record of previous futures is replete with discontinuities, with surprises like Eastern Europe. Attend to the Utopians instead.

Since they believe life could be different, what they say just might be true. Work is compulsory production, something done for some other reason than the satisfaction of doing it. That other reason might be violence slavery , dearth unemployment , or an internalized compulsion the Calvi- nisms "calling," the Buddhist's "right UveU- hood," the Syndicalist's duty to Serve the People.

Unlike the play-impulse, none of these motives maximizes our productive potential; work is not very productive although output is its only justification. Enter the consultants with their toys. The phrase implies a prior condition of job impoverishment which debunlcs the myth of mtk as a source of malth. Play is pluralistic, bringing into play the full pan- oply of talents and passions submerged by work and anaesthetized by leisure. The work-world frowns on job-jumping, the play-oriented or ludic life encourages hobby-hopping.

I hate it when things go wrong! I just hate it! There were two reports, both six months old, about shoot-outs be- tween the Ohio National Guard and "moonies" running untaxed alcohol distilleries. The gasbag stopped leaking. Apparently only two or three of the inner cells had been punctured. Amanda unpowered the blimp. There was no shooting outside, no red lasers slashing the air, no cobras in the sky. She opened the egress hatch, dropped the kevlar ladder and climbed out. She saiy that she Mfds sur- rounded by 9 scraggly band of desparddos.

A rough hand yanked her arm. She faced a bearded man with large, poor teeth. Beardsley and the crates of KNA were tossed down. What about the robot? The robot's lights went out. Amanda struggled in vain as the caravan pulled away from the downed blimp. The surface effect vehicle skimmed south over the broken road. The road block is just ahead. Dead ahead, three guardsmen stood at ready. The woman yanked Amanda to her feet. The man on Amanda's right pulled the wand from the sleeve of her jacket and threw it at the guards- men.

They picked it up, took it to the road- block and inserted it into a scanner. Amanda had watched similar scenes on Vidnet many times. The government always nego- tiated. The older cop on Adam was an ex- pert at compromise. He'd have them eating out of his hand in fifteen minutes. But Wolfe and his moonies were real — and real stupid. No ference or we kill the girl," Wolfe replied. With negotiations open, the Ohio National Guard paused.

According to protocol the next step was to lower the amount of cash offered but keep the trial op- tion. Wolfe's head shattered. The man on Amanda's right spun around and his chest came apart. The woman's knife flashed toward Amanda's throat, then her arm fell to the floor and she screamed and collapsed. Amanda hit the deck. The moonies opened fire; the Guard opened fire. It was over in seconds. Certain or at least hopeful that there would be no more shooting, Amanda peeked over the seat of the groundcar.

The moonies were strewn like broken barbies. The Buckeyes advanced. A turbine whined. From behind and to the right came a small white assault vehicle. It drew up and stopped. It bore no markings. The guards dropped to prone. The hatch opened. The head that appeared was blonde and balding. IHis blue eyes looked like winter ice holding the sky. He climbed out, 8 Continued next page weaponless. He dropped to the ground and faced the guards, his hands away from his body, about waist high, palms forward. Nasty lot those moonies! Name's Reed, Hunter Reed.

I understand there's a bounty on these animals. He ripped open what was left of the man's shirt and jacket, flipped a blade and widened the wound. He reached in and pulled out a bullet. Hunter Reed and the corporal stood facing each other. Reed used the monomole blade to gingerly split the teflon casing. He dropped something metallic into the corporal's hand. It adds weight and marks my kills.

He reached down and pro- duced a ceedee disk. He flipped it easily at Amanda's feet. The bounty will pay to fix your airship, miss," he said. He was gone in a cloud of dust. About 24 hours later, Gramps latched the clips over the robot's circuit board and flipped a toggle on his bench.

You can do the powertrain tomorrow. Gramps, will you read to me tonight? You know, from a book? Your grandmother helped, of course, but she was brought up to get her way at all costs. Not at all like you, eh? In the short time since that article appeared some important changes in identifica- tion paper issuance have occurred which it behooves all present and future VIP's Variable identity Persons to be aware of. I also want to clarify one topic discussed in the earlier article and go on to offer an opinion about the future of VIPism in America.

At the insistence of the IRS most children five years old or more have been issued SS numbers, irrespective of whether or not they were receiving income. Failure of a child to have a number means that their parents are not allowed to claim the child as a dependent on income tax returns. Since few parents can afford to be finan- cially punished through non-compliance, the new IRS ruling has succeeded in further breaching personal and financial privacy in America.

This new development, however, may bring forth a surprising and unintended result for the IRS and the political establishment — it may actually facilitate and increase VIPism! As mentioned in my earlier article, a major barrier to VIP status for many older candidates has been the difficulty or risk associated with obtaining a new Social Security number. Every one of the numerous certified Death Certificates I have seen has provided a block for this number. That's the down side of this development.

However, the up side is that there is unlikely to be any meaningful record of death with the IRS or Social Security System. No overt evidence of death would be registered with these agencies unless the child had been receiving a large amount of taxable income. Examples of this would be a child who frequently modelled children's clothing for a catalog or a child who received large interest- generating gifts from wealthy relatives.

When you look for a youthful corpse to resurrect, as I have done many times, and find that the child's grave has no marker it 10 First published in Summer Supplement Continued on next page is usually safe to assume that the child left no tax trail with the SS or IRS. No grave marker is an indication of poverty. It wonderfully illustrates the bizarre results which come about when Big Brother seeks to enslave us further — he closes one crack in the system and another one creeps in! Those who are now seeking VIP status face a greater challenge than was present when I wrote the eariier article.

The main obstacle is still the difiGculty in getting a new SS number late in life. The new IRS ruling makes things more difficult because it eliminates some excuses for people not having a SS number. The older applicant will now probably need a logical-sounding letter from a legitimate-looking source in order to secure a number without arousing suspicion. I doubt that any reference letter would be checked. And if it were, there are ways for the VIP applicant to cover himself.

The serious reader should refer to my earlier article. Remember that there still are perfectly legitimate reasons for an older person to apply for a new SS number. But the records a contemporary VIP needs to utilize are for the most part still kept in the old fashioned way. Therefore, all passport applications now require a valid SS number. Further- more, beginning in late all passport applications are now compared with the IRS master filing list to ensure that the passport applicant has been a good obedient little serf.

It was wonderfully simple for a VIP to step from one identity into another. In the future it appears that the VIP who really needs a passport will have to live in his new identity long enough to generate some tax returns before he applies for a passport. Clearly, those who took my earlier article to heart have managed to avoid getting caught by this latest trap.

Those current VIP's who wish to renew their passports in the future should start generating a little taxable income now so that by renewal time they will have generated two or three tax returns. But the power to identify is the power to tax and control. Further experience has led me to modify that opinion. Sure, the ideal corpse to resurrect is one that was born in one state and deceased in another. But I doubt that in most cases a VIP would be in danger by donning a corpse that was bom and deceased in the same state.

It is still advisable, of course, for a potential VIP to avoid choosing a subject that was bom and deceased in the same county. Unless a VIP plans to become the arch villain of the century there is little chance his back- ground will be checked to the extent that it would reveal an anomaly. In my searches spanning the country from New York to Washington state I have found that birth and death records are fractured and in disarray.

I can joyfully report that there is little cross-referencing done and negligible cooperation between various record deposito- ries. Furthermore, records are still kept in thick manually-accessed volumes, not in computers. And the subjects of interest are filed by date of the event, not by name.

Bear in mind that the situation is changing for events that are happening now in our time.

Computers and cross-referencing will pose a danger for VIP candidates of the 21st Century. Conditions for release of those records have in general become more stringent, however. Finally, while it is tme that most states have in recent years established central record keeping bureaus, those bureaus seldom have complete records that extend back more than twenty years. God bless computer viruses — may they long live and multiply! Cracks in the system are bound to continue fortunately, and innovative souls will continue to find them.

It is clear that the political moguls want control over us from the cradle to the grave. A famous judge once wrote that the power to tax is the power to destroy. So true. If the System wants names and numbers then let's give it names and numbers! Just imagine what a gigantic case of constipation we could produce in the government computers if in every April they were given lots of phan- tom names and numbers on tax return forms! Little do the bureaucrats realize that the systems they have cre- ated to enslave us can be turned back upon them.

Imagine their surprise when they find that "tax cheaters" turned in via toll-free hotlines turn out to be political officials chosen out of the telephone book. Get the idea? One trend that gives hope to all fi-eedom lovers is the tendency for ever more complex control systems to be implemented.

Strictly speaking, an ecologist is a scientist usually a biologist who studies the interrelationships between organisms and their environments. Scientific ecologists, to the extent that they want to appear respectable, may be quite anthropocentric in their day to day behavior; deep ecologists, on the other hand, are explicitly biocentric or at least try to be. To many people, an "ecologist" is simply an environment- alist, or someone who unlike Hayduke picks up bottles and cans along roadsides Fve seen garbage trucks labeled "Ecology Dept.

Some self-labeled environ- mentalists have added to the confusion by misinter- preting what ecology fundamentally means, and using it as a buzzword for various political goals. More disturbing to me, as a professional ecologist sensitive to people's lack of appreciation of ecology, is that environmentalists are often antagonistic toward science and scientists in general, not just toward manipulative science and technology. Some openly suggest that scientists are the enemy, and have nothing positive to offer the environmental movement.

For example, in planning a recent Green Conference in Florida, organizers went out of their way to assure that no scientific ecologists were involved. When I criticized the program of the conference which featured anti-deep ecologist Ynestra King as a keynote speaker and asked why no ecologists had been invited to speak, the con- ference organizer responded that if I meant by "ecolo- gist," the "professional, biological scientist type," then he saw no need for that kind of person to speak at a conference for activists.

I admit I feel a little uneasy about being called a scientist But a woman or man crouched in the forest, keying-out and admiring a fungus or recording details of bird behavior, is every bit as much of a scientist as the experimenter in the laboratory. And the lab scientist, too, may contribute invaluable information toward our understanding of how Nature works. I suggest that science phobia is often misguided, and that ecological science is a constructive approach to knowing Nature.

By itself, science may be neither necessary nor suflScient to understand Nature, but it is one of the best tools we have. Deep ecologists and other environmentalists would do well to consider more thoughtfully what the Way of Ecology offers, both as a science and as a worldview.

The science of ecology developed from natural history, the lore of Nature. Since Charles Darwin, this lore has been infused with concepts of interdependence, interrelationship, and co-adaption — indeed, it was Darwin's thoroughly scientific theory of evolution that made ecology possible. Evolution made sense out of natural history; facts heretofore disconnected became interacting components of general patterns that could be explained in a rational and convincing way.

Further- more, elements in Darwin's theory were empirically testable — the hallmark of science. Unlike religious beliefs, scientific hypotheses are designed to be discarded if they no longer accord with observations. Much hogwash persists in science, but honest scientists do their best to weed it out.

The subject of ecology is Nature, which has developed in all its beauty through organic evolution and is a vast web of interactions more complex than humans can ever fully comprehend. As ecologist Frank Euler has pointed out, "Nature is not only more complex than we think, but more complex than we can ever think.

Although ecological com- plexity can never and some would add, should never be fully quantified, the study of complex interactions — ecology — produces overwhelming respect for the whole in all who approach it sensitively. In becoming scientific, natural history did not degenerate into mechanism, but rather matured into holism while retaining the proven techniques of mechanistic science.

EstabUshing facts through observ- ation, experiment, and other reductionist methods, ecology unites them and integrates them into broad, general theories, into wholes greater than the sum of their parts. The wholes theories are there all along, of course, guiding the collection of data and providing context for facts.
