Derrick Jensen author of Listening to the Land , A Language Older Than Words , The Culture of Make Believe , Strangely Like War: The Global Assault on Forests , Walking on Water  and Welcome to the Machine: Science, Surveillance, and the Culture of Control , all published by Chelsea Green, recently was interviewed by No Compromise . He talked about the destruction of the planet and the necessity of dismantling civilization.
I want to bring down civilization. It’s really clear that civilization is killing the planet. I’m interested in living in a world that has more wild salmon every year than the year before. A world that has more migratory songbirds every year than the year before. A world that has less dioxins and flame retardants in mothers’ breast milk. A world not being destroyed. A world where krill populations aren’t collapsing. A world where there are not dead zones in the oceans. A world not being systematically dismantled. I want to live in a world that is not being killed. I will do whatever it takes to get there. It is really clear that for the past 6000 years civilization has been killing the planet. It’s a way of life that systematically destroys its land base and right now it’s destroying the planet. I’m on the planet’s side.
