Derrick Jensen on Civilization and Creating a Culture of Resistance

Civilization took millennia to congeal, and in the last few hundred it has really accelerated its world takeover. The health of the world’s plant and animal communities have inversely plummeted, where now species extinctions are in the hundreds per day, and the wounded remnants of ecosystems are finally succumbing to desertification, which is evident across over two-thirds of the planet. Joining us today to help us interpret these patterns of history, and how to break them, is author Derrick Jensen. Philosopher, teacher, and radical activist Derrick Jensen has authored over twenty books and is the best-known voice of the growing deep ecology movement.
