This is the Amazon Product Description for Deep Green Resistance, a book by Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith and Aric McBay. I’ll admit now that I began reading out of curiosity, it but couldn’t get past the first few pages. WithClimategate 2 still unfolding, it’s worth reminding ourselves of the extremes to which the politics of Green coercion can lead.
For years, Derrick Jensen has asked his audiences, “Do you think this culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of life?” No one ever says yes.
Deep Green Resistance starts where the environmental movement leaves off: industrial civilization is incompatible with life. Technology can’t fix it, and shopping – no matter how green – won’t stop it. To save this planet, we need a serious resistance movement that can bring down the industrial economy. Deep Green Resistance evaluates strategic options for resistance, from nonviolence to guerrilla warfare, and the conditions required for those options to be successful. It provides an exploration of organizational structures, recruitment, security, and target selection for both aboveground and underground action. Deep Green Resistance also discusses a culture of resistance and the crucial support role that it can play.
Deep Green Resistance is a plan of action for anyone determined to fight for this planet – and win.
