The goal of this forum topic is to discuss the differences between Anthropocentrism and Ecocentrism. I also want to see how YOU stand in this topic.

I am looking forward to seeing the differences you all come up with, and seeing how you all discuss this amongst each other.

It is kind of hard to be a supporter of ecocentrism with the knowledge that Nature has caused millions of species to become extinct before man ever drew breath; also with the fact that Nature will surely allow the earth to just quietly die along with any ecosystem "protected" when the sun burns out. So why is Nature important again?

Anthropomorphism. In the context of people first, the environment actually is put first fairly often, because we're heavily dependent on it. But our relationship with the environment should still take into effect how it affects us before it considers anything else.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
