Environmental imperative

The key message of the worldwide ecological movement is all must respect GEP – the Global Environment principle – do not harm the environment.
In the early 21st century Russian scientists Chigirev V.A. and Iunatskevich P.I. proposed to the world community a universal humane method of the regulation of social relations in the field of environmental protection – the discursive-judgmental method.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The discursive-judgmental method is based on the creation of a special network construction which allows to carry out the directed discourse and real-time mass ethical evaluation, promptly visualize the harm posed by a social subject. Such indication allows the mobile crowd of network activists (socially active citizens) to provide the exact humane impact on a social subject and prevent the environmental damage caused by him (to destroy the threat in the ecosphere).
The discursive-judgmental method by Chigirev V.A. and Iunatskevich P.I. is the procedure for evaluating the ethics (morality) of behavior of specific social subjects which is based on discursive practices of specific life activity of these social subjects. During these procedures, the discursive-judgmental regulators arise.
The discursive ethical regulators operate exclusively humanely. They remind the subject of the norm of his proper (ethical, moral) behaviour. They provide an opportunity to explain why the subjects do the things they do. They offer an opportunity to the other subjects to evaluate the social actions of the other subjects, including the sphere of environmental protection.
The philosophical basis of the discursive-judgmental method by Chigirev V.A. and Iunatskevich P.I. is the environmental imperative.
Imperative (from the Latin) – requirement, or der, law. It is a common moral (ethical) requirement, the observance of which ensures the survival of the human.
The environmental imperative (EI) is an unconditional and generally accepted principle of behavior. It is forbidden line in human interaction with oneself, others, and the environment (nature). Human and humanity themselves cannot cross this line, since the ecological imperative itself is a natural and unanimously recognized norm of behavior.
 
 
 
The global environmental principle (GEP) «do no harm» sets the natural and unanimously recognized norm of behavior.
The norm is what society attributes to doing to both a specific person and all people. The global moral principle (GMP), or global ethical principle stems from the global environmental principle (GEP). It means that a person should conduct itself in a way that does not harm.
GEP (the global environmental principle) forms the basis of the universal and unconditional norm of behavior – «do no harm».
GMP (the global moral or ethical principle) forms the basis of the universal and universally accepted of the value of human and society – do no harm yourself and others.
GEP and GMP constitute the  environmental imperative , the substance of which  Related to the rule of «Three Cs» – do no harm yourself (C1), neighborhood  (C2), the environment (C3).  
 
EI → GEP, GMP
 
The degree of harm is evaluated in a discursive procedure (the discursive-judgmental method – DJM).
DJM (the discursive-judgmental method) allows the evaluation across a wide range of scales. The value of the DJM (the discursive-judgmental method) is that it is based on the environmental imperative, approved by the  majority of people. 
 
DJM → mass evaluation procedure and discourse
(EI → GEP, GMP)
 
The discursive-judgmental method is based on the procedures of mass valuation and discourse from the position of the environmental imperative, denoting the norm and value of the behavior of participants in assessment and discourse. 
The   environmental imperative as  ecological standard and moral value applies to any human activity. And it has the unconditional priority – do not harm yourself, others and the environment. 
The  environmental imperative is the human and society requirement to comply with standards of conduct – do not harm yourself, others and the environment. This requirement is based on the obvious on the irreversibility of the harmful effects and irreparable losses for the human itself, others, the environment.
 
 
The compliance with this norm of behavior is ensured by the practical implementation of the discursive-judgmental method (DJM).
The features of DJM:
is based on the  environmental imperative;
ideologically neutral;
does not claim to be truth, but allows you to search for paths to the truth;
balances solidarity and justice in the human and society;
not lethal;
humane, gently keeps from harmful and wrong deeds.
The measure of harm is determined by the discursive-judgmental procedure.
Eventually DJM:
allows you to adjust concrete behavior;
provides the inclusion in the discourse and evaluation of all stakeholders;
guarantees a communicative balance in the evaluation and discussion of evaluation – the voices and argumentative practices of all are equal.
Argumentation is the process of persuasion of oneself and others in the rightness of claims for recognition. Everyone wants to convince themselves and others in certain claims. During the argumentation, opponents (those who are against) and proponents (those who are for) arise. The methods of argumentation may be different and contradict the environmental imperative. For example, a common way of argumentation is arbitrariness, by armed and (or) technological violence. Proponents acquire the right to life, and opponents lose it for disagreement.
 
 
 
DJM, as opposed to argumentation, contains the environmental imperative, which has already won the general approval and guarantees a prohibition on the use of inhumane methods of argumentation in discourse. 
The speed of human harm to itself and others has become repeatedly exceed possibilities of natural recovery. Social disasters, the most serious of which is inequality which serves as the main reason of wars, crime, corruption, poverty, terrorism and extremism, have became especially dangerous. Inequality violates the favorable social and environmental properties of the environment.
The ecosphere has the ability to self-regulation and restoration the balance of security, justice and solidarity.
The ecological movement arises and passes spontaneously.
There are social groups which stand in solidarity because of the idea of environmental protection and restoration of justice. However, the methods of environmental protection and establishing justice are mostly bureaucratic ones and depend on politicians and heads of administrative structures.
The emergence of such a method as DJM (the discursive-judgmental method) creates a new form of the ecological movement without bureaucratic, political and administrative technologies. The world community needs literally the ideology-technology of morality, which keeps everyone from harming the habitat, others and himself.
These requirements are so harsh that it is legitimate to call them the environmental imperative. The environmental imperative is a set of moral (moral, ethical, social, professional) prohibitions, compliance with limiting behavior, violation of which leads to environmental degradation, destruction of social and environmental properties that are favorable for human life, and destruction of socio-economic and environmental conditions of human existence.
 
 
 
The rapid growth of inequality is huge obstacle to the implementation of the environmental imperative.
The implementation of the restrictions and prohibitions of the environmental imperative encounters a number of significant obstacles from the social parasites, those who live off others.
Obviously, the minimization of the level of social parasitism is carried out on the basis of the discursive-judgmental method. Therein lies the salvation of humankind from the threat of environmental catastrophe.
DJM (the discursive-judgmental method) is the hope of mankind!
The environmental imperative is formally present in the declarations of the heads of organizations of various forms of ownership and in the statements of individuals, but only DJM (the discursive-judgmental method) as technology turns these declarations into life.
The participation of youth of Russian in the international ecological movement has a high potential. For example, in Saint Petersburg since 2017, thanks to the support of the Governor of the city Poltavchenko G.S. in schools for each class introduced regular extracurricular class on «morality». The objective of the lesson is to teach children comply with GEP – the global environmental principle «do no harm» stems from GEP the rule of «Three Cs» – do no harm yourself, neighborhood, environment. In extracurricular class children develop a moral compass.
And who knows, maybe one of them will be a world leader, showing a particular way to achieve an environmental objective that is clear to all the leaders of the world – do not harm the environment.
 
This way is simple and understandable to every pupil and student. Its basis is DJM (the discursive-judgmental method).
 
Children can evaluate in real time the proper or improper behavior of each leader, who is responsible for protecting the environment and thus motivate this leader to properly perform his duties.
You can evaluate adults who are responsible for the environment and you can influence on their behavior to protect the world and your region from environmental disaster!
 
 
Ecological movement for everyone may be a road to success and the establishment of the mission of GEP – the global environmental principle – «do no harm». This principle is suprareligious, supranational and non-partisan one. Its implementation is feasible through the practical use of the discursive-judgmental procedures, which will soon become global and irreversible around the world.
The ecological movement from the north has begun its way around the world and transformation will soon begin to surprise those who do not understand that unplanned changes are inevitable and reassuring forecasts will only accelerate their onset.
