The greening of citizenship, the state and ideology creates both opportunities and bottlenecks for progressive political movements seeking to test the boundaries of justice in sustainable development. Normative theories overlook the partial assimilation of hitherto critical ideological values to the post-industrial eco-modernizing state. Achieving ideals such as dissolving nature/culture dualism, unifying the private and public spheres, fostering non-contractualism, non-territorialism and awareness of finite ecospace has not necessarily fostered justice. Indeed, the state implements these ideals by supporting corporate responsibility, dismantling the welfare state, embracing market-globalization, green consumerism and 'liveability'. Rather, as Scerri argues, the greening of citizenship evokes a new grammar of justice, one that for better or worse sees politics anchored by the demands of a test of "wellness".
