"The debtor nations are pressured to privatize their economies, selling at scandalously low prices their state-owned mines, railroads, and utilities to private corporations.

They are forced to open their forests to clear-cutting and their lands to strip mining, without regard to the ecological damage done." Michael Parenti 2/16/07 http://www.commondreams.org/views07/0216-30.htm

What is at the kernel of this system Parenti describes? Some might say it's a stretch to attempt to apply straight Girard to these economic phenomena, but a few of us at New Café have detected some explanatory power in break-downs of Rene Girard's theories, that is... paraphrased or economically interpreted Girardian concepts.

Currently the latest mention of Girard in this context has been in the Philosophy Forum's "Five Words on Capitalism," Saturday, Feb 17th (thread not overtly dedicated to ecological concerns).

I do not look forward to instant nationalizing of everything because I do not think it will happen.

"In capitalist society, the Heap is an extended and tightly
interwoven network of debt. It is a massive and complex structure of
resentment and desire."
