Removing that capitalism removes that necessity. It doesn't mean all
problems immediately disappear. It means the NECESSITY to continuously
reproduce those problems on a greater scale disappears.
There is no "unto itself" necessity to deplete fish stocks-- to have "too
many poles in the water" to use Barry's quaint image.
This seems to mean - to me, that the bourgeois organization of commercial
fishing as an industry and profit center, reproduces in a widening scale
depletion rather than "too many poles in the water." This bourgeois
organization of commercial fishing, (fishing for profits one might say), deploys
various methods and techniques in sinking its nets into the ocean of probable
profitability and this might perhaps have something to do with exacerbating
depletion of various fishing stock, on a widening scale.
To solve the problem of depletion and then restocking requires that the
impulses driving depletion be stopped. Economic impulse must be considered is
shaping a solution to depletion. The solution would to over fishing would
seem to be found in "stop doing it." That is to stop the huge commercial
fleets and reorganize the entire arena of fishing to correspond with our
increasing understanding and desire to restore nature's spontaneous bounty in a
way that corresponds with our growing awareness of our impact on nature.
Much is involved in any solution to a society problem, including overcoming
ignorance and bad habits as ritual behavior. However, to effect a long
term solution to a society problem, one must try and locate that, which is
fundamental to reproducing the problem in a widening scope.
Did the old Soviets over fish "their waters?" Let's assume that they did
for the moment. The solution remains the same: "stop doing it." Does that
mean that over fishing by say the Soviets was driven by the same economic
impulses? Of course not.
