An Orthodox View of the Ecological Crisis
7.1 The Macro-ecological Responsibility.
From the theological point of view, the ecological crisis is in a sense the contemporary repetition of the original sin: mankind seeks after the quantitative and not the qualitative domination of the earth; for his greater and not his best presence in the world.
Today most of man's activities are subordinated to the principles of political Economic thinking while ignoring the irreplaceable principles of the divine Economy. The consequences of this way of thinking and acting are very vividly forseen in the Book of St. John's Revelation, as ecological catastrophy.
