John Bellamy Foster

Dr. John Bellamy Foster is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon and editor of the “Marxist Magazine Monthly Review.” He advocates a “red-green” alliance to abolish capitalism, and considers the collapse of the Soviet empire a setback for human progress. Foster advocates what he calls "the socialization of nature,” explaining that "the more that nature is placed under the protection of people in general through democratic processes that determine the rules of sustainability, the better things are going to be." Government, in other words, should “own” nature.
