Guest: Derrick Jensen

Derrick Jensen has become one of the nation’s leading voices of cultural and environmental dissent, who writes on how civilization is devastating the environment and the natural world, and our society’s denial of that fact. In 2008, Utne Reader listed Derrick as one of the 50 visionaries changing the world. His many books have explored the nature of humanity’s postmodern pathology and its roots: the interrelationship between hate and economics, genocide, corporate malfeasance, and the on-going neglect of the environmental crisis that is destroying the planet.

In sharp contrast to environmental optimists who believe working within the corportacracy will offset the tenuous planetary balance threatened by climate change, Derrick advocates a “dismantling of civilization” which can include radical dissent as well as imparting wisdom to our children.

He has received many awards for his writings, including the two “Endgame” volumes, His most recent book “Dreams” is a thorough critique against the fundamentalist Christian legalist morality and materialist scientism that define western civilization and reinforce its disregard and violence against nature.
