  1. I find it odd that you didn’t use this section, from the same document, which is a much more functional definition to work from and includes the basis for the “green”, ecology:

    Green Anarchism:…
    Distinctions within this category lie primarily in questions of how far back to look for understanding the destructiveness of civilization. Some would say that domestication and agriculture can be ecologically ‘sustainable’ and preferrable. Others would contend that technology itself is not an inherent problem.
    The unifying principle lies in an ecological basis and understanding of the megatechnological State as destructive.
