The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers
The Question (ID Number 162)...
I think you there may be a problem with tracing it all to "totalitarian agriculture". It is really "pure totalitarianism", which has been called "original sin" or "hubris" by Christian theologians. And while you may be right in saying that our civilization believes that God placed humanity on earth to CONQUER it, you are wrong in implying that this is a Christian position. Christians believe that we are placed here as STEWARDS, not conquerors.
...and the response:
We are no more qualified to be stewards of the earth than we are to be its rulers. The earth got along just fine without our stewardship for three billion years.
