    Deep Ecology is best understood through its founding documents:

    I am more from the Futurist realm than the Luddite realm, but the real idea of deep ecology is that we need a society that wisely manages technology and population. That is not incompatible with having technology, but perhaps with allowing the buying habits of the lower echelons to define how we use it. Is it wise that we have every occupant of an American ghetto toting around a $800 Apple iPhone?
