De-economisation of the spirit

Serge Latouche in an article in the November 2005 edition of Le Monde Diplomatique, explores the idea of the possibility of applying the political project of "décroissance" (de-growth) to the democratic system. Elswhere too, Mr. Latouche calls for the "de-economisation of the spirit". Such radical green political agenda would require the impossible or a substantial state intervetionism that would be as interventionist and imposing as the Communist state (if not even worse). The justification of the communist terror was justice and equality while the justification of the totalitarian green state would be survival of the human species in the long run that is. For more on this read the last edition of Le Mode Diplomatique.
