Another way of opposing the extractive economy…
How Russian Orthodox writer Dostoyevsky puts it in Brothers Karamazov:
Love all Creation.
The whole and every grain of sand in it.
Love every leaf,
and every ray of light.
Love the plants.
Love the animals.
If you love everything you will perceive the Divine Mystery in all things.
Once you perceive it
you will comprehend it better every day.
And you will come, at last,
to love the whole world
with an all embracing love.
