Socioeconomic Perspectives: Vandana Shiva (1988) and Karen Warren (2015) argue that according to 'materialist ecofeminism,' socioeconomic conditions are basic to the intertwined domination of women and nature. 'Capitalist patriarchy' draws on the notion that the "means" of production: raw materials, land, natural resources; and the "forces" of production: factories, machineries, experienced workers; are all property of 'man' , which results in unfair distribution of natural resources between men and women, unrecognition of women's labour, and ultimately unrevised exploitation of natural resources. Vandana Shiva in her book " Staying Alive: Women, Ecology and Survival in India" presents the idea of the "maldevelopment" of Western development, and traces it to the European colonization of Asia, especially India, and Africa. The colonizers have replaced domestic crops and forests for cash crops for their native European countries. Crops that native women used to plant and represented a source of income and domestic use – has been eliminated and women were held responsible for "non-money based" household duties, which resulted in what Shiva calls "feminization of poverty", subordination of women, as well as the degradation of nature.

Abbey’s explanation is to take the protection of the environment into your own hands. Now the end result of this is illegal, from the way that Abbey leads up to the decision, in which he states that there is no better solution to fighting back. Then causing the destruction of equipment used to chop down trees.

“Mad scientists", men who disregard their safety and the safety of their surroundings to achieve their goal has become a staple of modern literature, almost a cliche.

Different chemicals in the brain can cause some humans to do despicable things to their fellow inhabitants of Earth. Hubris syndrome is defined as believing you have supreme power and do not have the need to answer to any mortal court (Owen and Davidson 1-3). In broad terms, Hubris syndrome is similar to Narcissistic Personality disorder, but instead is triggered when in a high position of power. The Roman emperor Caligula most likely had Hubris Syndrome. Described by the Roman Suetonius as a complete monster, the despot did things such as wantonly have people killed and made people treat him as if he were on the level of power of the gods (437-439).
Through conversations with people of affluence, such as Theodore Roosevelt, and printed appeals in both local and national newspapers, magazines, and pamphlets, Muir led his charge. In an Atlantic Monthly article, Muir criticized utilitarian environmental policies which suggested that the economic value of Hetch Hetchy to the region justified its destruction. Likewise, in a Sierra Club bulletin from 1908, Muir wrote, “In these ravaging money-mad days monopolizing San Francisco capitalists are now doing their best to destroy the Yosemite Park.” A later section of the piece is laden with religious imagery comparing the sin of capitalistic interest in building the reservoir to the sin which banished mankind from the Garden of Eden. According to Conservationist historian Douglas Strong, Muir’s persuasive techniques made him the nation’s most acclaimed spokesmen for preservation. Robert Righter, the author of The Battle over Hetch Hetchy, suggests that of some the modern methods used to sway public opinion have their origins in the persuasion tactics Muir used during the Hetch Hetchy protest.
Using the examples of Napoleon and Boxer this essay will discuss the truths of human nature and express the traits of these characters both good and bad including; loyalty and obedience as well as selfishness and greed.

It shows the extent he will go and lies he will tell to ensure the power he has isn’t taken away.
With the creation of what Hobbes refers to as “state of nature”, Hobbes alters his philosophical content into an odd cross blend of genres, in order to portray the innate and natural state of humankind and its anecdotal perspectives is the result of abstract creativity. A story commences to rise within Leviathan, a tragedy whose fundamental characters are common men battling for survival against the savagery of the innate world and the misuse of each other. Hobbes ' depiction of the contingency of nature resembles his portrayal of what he refers to as “motion of matter”(pg.99). Hobbesian text bodies steadily and fiercely into one another similarly to the way that human bodies clash with state of nature. In this manner, not only does every layer of Hobbes ' contentions expand upon the rationale of the last, every layer reflects previous symbolism and
