This day I am reading Rudolph Bahro, Building the Green Movement. There is no publisher's blurb at any of the amazon.com links, and no reviews to snip. Bahro is already more or less forgotten. This is the second book I'll have read by him, the first being a series of interviews that revealed him as a nuisance to his DDR fellows who felt it would be better to dump him on the FDR than to keep him in prison. I think, in fact, that the DDR imprisoned him only to raise his profile to make him more desirable as a dissident for the FDR. But, as one sees in the interviews, his fellow Communists in the West were increasingly turned off by his focus on Ecology, and eventually, as this book shows, his fellow ecologists were turned off my his religious fanaticism.
I've written about Bahro here a number of times, and one will find some excellent work concerning Bahro, a "Fundie," by "Realos" under Janet Biehl (1953 - ) and Peter Staudenmaier (n.d.). For those interested, please do a search of the archives here. I'll leave some brief comments later in the evening, I hope.
For those who obviously don't get it, the connection between Islam and Ecology is the dhimmitude and philobarbarism. More on that, as with most posts, in up-coming entries.
