Quote of the Day from Theodore Roszak

Ecopsychologists have identified what they call the ‘ecological unconscious’ in every human being. This is an intrinsic sense we all have of being earth stewards. We are born with this belief that it is one’s duty and honor to take care of the living planet. However, our removal from wild nature through the emergence of civilization, has made this ecological awareness ‘unconscious.’ Noted historian Theodore Roszak, argues that, “repression of the ecological unconscious is the deepest root of the collusive madness in industrial society; open access to the ecological unconscious is the path to sanity.”
