“To reverse the effects of civilization would destroy the dreams of a lot of people. There’s no way around it. We can talk all we want about sustainability, but there’s a sense in which it doesn’t matter that these people’s dreams are based on, embedded in, intertwined with, and formed by an inherently destructive economic and social system. Their dreams are still their dreams. What right do I — or does anyone else — have to destroy them?
At the same time, what right do they have to destroy the world?”
― Derrick Jensen, Endgame, Vol. 1: The Problem of Civilization
We dedicate this blog to our wise, talented, and inspirational teachers who have taught us the most important lessons about this crucial time in the history of the earth. They have dedicated their lives to putting talk into action, as we will strive to do when we leave here and return to our own communities. Thank you!
