DOWNLOAD BOOK Deep Green Resistance Author Aric McBay – doctorio.us

Rnment or any government which is probably necessary to say to cover their asses but is entirely antithetical to the idea of bringing down civilization as we know itDeep Green Resistance and most of Jensen s books employ many rhetorical devices without a lot of facts relevant citations or follow up For example I m sure I heard the cutting off the fingers anecdote in at least Endgame And the authors certainly make sure to state that 200 species a day are kicking the bucket AS YOU READ THIS BOOK So please go out and blow something up Maybe The authors aren t really too specific about that They are too busy being authors to start the resistance movement hence this book to get ou to do it instead Many of the issues I have with this book center around author Lierre Keith I certainly hated the book The Vegetarian Myth Food Justice and Sustainability because of it s abundant lack of facts and absurd stereotypes and generalizations about vegans and vegetarians Keith goes to great lengths in this book to discuss that she is a feminist Now I m a feminist and I completely agree that any movements that call themselves radical need to have a feministwomanist perspective to avoid the numerous pitfalls of many previous movements in history However Keith is also adamantly anti porn is pro one child policy so much for choice and seems to believe in biological determinism she mentions that the starving boyfriends of her stupid vegan female friends are always pining for some dead cow soup that she serves at potlucks Also when mentioning rapists in the counter culture she only mentioned black activists I m sure she could have mentioned that rapists come in all skin colors She also uses a lot of ableist language which I find to be distinctly alienating as at times she literally euates the term insane with sociopathAnd honestly I don t know why a book about environmental radical movements needs to be so vehemently anti vegan I have a hard time taking somebody who contributes to the slaughter of 25 BILLION animals per ear in the US alone seriously when they say they re sad that animal species are going extinct or that they wonder why overfishing occurs I also can t take her seriously when I assume from the Vegetarian Myth that she only ever ate bread and lettuce while vegan when she says things like veganism causes general lassitude or that a food ethic stripped of protein and fat may meet ideological needs but it will not meet the biological needs of the human template Dear Lierre Keith vegans actually do eat enough protein and fat See for example uinoa or avocados It s not that hard She also rails against industrial agriculture global warming and deforestation in the when vegans are hoping to help avoid those things by turning down animal products And I love her view of the future where people who bring soy products to permaculture potlucks start getting funny looks Technically soybeans are a major ingredient in livestock feed so anybody who brings burgers should probably get funny looks tooAnother thing that seemed counter to Keith s feminism was the fat shaming statements of people being obese when they eat bad food as if refined carbohydrates are the only things leading to adiposity and as if being fat is a horrible thing Fat people are probably the most exhausted humans on the planet as minute to minute their bodies cannot access the energy they need to function What Please tell that to all of the athletic fat people or non athletic fat people who are not continuously exhausted Finally Keith wraps up This Section Stating That Food Should Be A Nourishing And section stating that food should be a nourishing and part of our culture but clearly not when people are so afraid of being fat that they spend the better part of our culture but clearly not when people are so afraid of being fat that they spend the better part of lives dieting and hating their bodiesLierre Keith also had some kind of amazing time during the northeast blackouts of 2003 saying that she didn t see any drawbacks to it I remember the blackout well because my family s house was out of power for over a week We didn t go without electricity or using our cars as we had to eat go to work and do all sorts of other things that humans do We did what many people did and used a diesel powered generator to cook food run the fridge so our food didn t spoil and take showers The fact that the power went out for a while in 2003 doesn t give us any indication of what a future without fossil fuels will look like And considering that all of the authors of this book are against solar wind and geothermal power that future according to them will be completely lacking in electricityAnd to wrap up my thoughts about Lierre Keith I wonder why she has such stupid according to her friends Every anecdote about her friends inevitably leads to some stupid thing they did that made her feel like she was so much better than everyone else I guess she just has an inferiority complex which leads her to hang out with vegans new agers and oga aficionadosThis book criticizes nearly every radical and counter cultural movement in the past with a few exceptions Lierre Keith made a progression something like teenager s brains aren t fully formed according to some fishy MRI study the 60s counter culture was mostly made of oung people and Timothy Leary sucked ED I really wonder what they would say about Occupy except I think they d probably find a way to hate them tooFinally the authors of this book seem to hate fascism but without any kind of clear road to the future which by necessity has to include a political viewpoint is going to lead in that direction Especially when the future radicals are armed with ideas like the population has to be reduced by about 90% vegans are braindead and people are only allowed to have one child Aric McBay also mentioned that people who commit environmental crimes should be executed I certainly wouldn t want him to be in charge of deciding who gets hung in the future I m certainly anti death penalty and I thought most true radicals were Extremely well researched inspiring and encouraging A true call to arms to save the planet from destruction A must read for all environmentalists and social justice warriors. Ploration 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 playDeep Green Resistance is a plan of action for anyone determined to fight for this planet and wi.

He presence of two co authors aided in readabilityDeep Green Resistance aims to motivate the formation of an underground army to carry out something they call Decisive Ecological Warfare This is not a joke Through reading guerrilla and resistance books and manuals from many historical periods they put together a strategy for identifying the goal destroy industrial civilization developing a strategy and identifying tactics blowing things up mostly They helpfully include suggestions on things like minimizing security leaks and performing background checks on new recruits again not a joke I can t speak to the practicality of any of this never having run nor even participated in underground armies but I can say that as I have no immediate nor long term plans to assassinate anyone I skipped that section altogether However what the authors overlook in their very thorough review of global resistance movements past and present is that this is not Nazi Germany nor is it the Niger delta That is the very fact that they were able to write and publish this book through a mainstream publishing house and that it is sold at large national bookstore chains would seem to indicate that we live in a society where people have enough personal freedom that the extreme solutions they advocate are possibly not necessary and almost certainly something most of us are not et desperate enough to entertain This is as kindly as I can put it This would all point towards a 15 rating Also frustrating the section on horizontal hostility aka infighting where sub movements critiue each other rather than their actual targets then followed by approximately 100 pages of attacks on other kinds of environmentalists and why their kind of environmentalism is inadeuate I don t know why this is necessary Surely even if Blutstein (Öland-Quartett, you don t think they re using their time well by building wind farms using cloth shopping bags and making community gardens this does not make them the enemy andou don t need to call them names redacted Their passion for the natural world is unuestionable and their assessment of our straits is bang on But taking potshots at other environmentalists is totally unnecessary their assessments of the other environmentalists positions is inaccurate and unkind and the comparison of industrial capitalism with nazi germany renders much of their analysis and suggested solutions unusable I mean for crying out loud here I am under my own name writing a review of a book advocating the destruction of infrastructure and the assassination of capitalists said book bought at Chapters review published on a public website and I have every expectation not to be arrested for it Doesn t that say something Essential reading for any aspiring revolutionary Holy ShitThe holy grail if environmentalism and activism Im digging it a LOT Coming from someone doing their Phd on climate change and Chains of Gold you askourself so like we are royally fucked and like what are people doing about it The Sorceress yeah nothing how bout thatThis book tells it like it is and tellsou how to act Love it love itKaplowey A must read for anyone seeking effective strategies to address environmental and social crises Deep Green Resistance lays out a plan with an actual chance of success Decisive Ecological Warfare Aboveground activists must rebuild local sustainable democratic communities while underground activists disable the physical infrastructure Warfare Aboveground activists must rebuild local sustainable democratic communities while underground activists disable the physical infrastructure our planet It s a tall and intimidating order but the authors make a passionate and convincing case for its feasibility and its necessity We all change and evolve in our thinking over time When I read this book Pleasure and Pain years ago it was formative and urgent However examining it with the knowl As with most books by this trio of authors I disliked Deep Green Resistance First let me explain the layout of the book The first section mostly written by Lierre Keith is centered on the philosophy and motivation behind the book Section two written by Aric McBay is actually uite good and is all about building a movement and I would suggest these few chapters for those interested in doing so The last section is just a uick wrap up again by Lierre KeithNow I will tellou the fundamental problem I have with this book and with anything else written by Derrick Jensen or his buddies The purpose of this book is to completely dismantle civilization and to go back to pre agricultural societies Let that set in for a second The authors think to themselves where did this planet start going to hell they picked a date approximately 10000 The Mountain and the Valley years ago and went with that Unfortunately the authors do not provide their vision of an ideal future in this book Actually they sort of do but it doesn t explain the part where BILLIONS of people die population of the world pre agriculture way less than half of one billion and the authors state that 20000 humans would be a nice number electricity and running water are things of the past medications not to mention birth control that we use today are no longer manufactured and we all hunt and gather to eat For some reason the idea of going back to an age where a simple infected cut could kill me isn t too exciting I also like taking hot showers and not freezing to death in the winter I m also not sure where humans can go to hunt and gather these days Farms But that would defeat the pointThe authors also make the somewhat ignorant conclusion that civilization and indigenous societies are mutually exclusive categories They do not explain how a population reduction might occur but state that it is necessary except for one mention of the one child policy this stated by a so called feminist and mention that when society inevitably collapses the population reduction will occur anyway Ifou think that through ou can imagine that the people that Jensen et al would least like to remain on the planet will be those with the that Jensen et al would least like to remain on the planet will be those with the resources to ensure that they aren t the ones to kick it when the planet goes to hell That s not a great philosophy to live by if ou re a member of the global poor The authors also mention that our goal is not to bring down the US gove. Opping 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 reuired for those options to be successful It provides an ex. ,

I m still not 100% convinced about agriculture what if it s done on a very small scale but I agree with 90 50% of their analysisReading this book was the first time in awhile that my entire soul was set on fire with passion I actually had no idea just how much of the planet we had already destroyed and how uickly we are killing what s left If I ever join or support an environmental group in the future it will be DGR they are the only ones whose analysis matches the scope of the problem and whose strategy aims to win no matter whatI see ending industrial civilization as a logical and necessary extension of veganismabolition I know a lot of people would find that paradoxical given that one of the co authors Lierre Keith is a pretty outspoken critic of veganism But I went vegan because I believed that all sentient beings are eually entitled to their lives so how could I continue to support a way of life that places the most trivial human wants above the life or death needs of non humans That s a rhetorical uestion I can t Industrial civlization is incompatible with animal euality with life with anything that matters reallyMy slight issue with this book apart from the agriculturevegan issue is that it s simply way too much to take in one reading I understand the point of having everything together in one bookplace but it is really an overwhelming read if Rescued (The Missing, you try to do it in one go not exactly beach material I ll probably need several reads before I can take in the finer points about strategy the history of revolutions aboveground vs underground groups and firewalls etc 172 pages in and stunned by the density of information clarity and maturity of the discussion and breadth of the issues covered For me at least this is a very important book It looks at our community issues and really puts them under a microscope It does a lot of explaining why current structures social political financial are damaging and it resonates very well with my own observations feelings and concerns It is not the book I thought I was about to read but I am delighted that I have it I disagree with the authors on only one point I think we re already past the point of no return But I agree with them in that I don t think that means we shouldn t try The human species is the cockroach of the world We have invaded every habitat in the world and destroyed every one with which we have come in contact I wasn t really being fair to cockroaches in the preceding statementWake up folks Technology isn t going to save us With each increase in technology we increase our energy use The authors are absolutely correct Unless we eliminate consumption capitalism we re heading toward uick extinction very uick and uite possibly in the lifetime of some of the readers Ifou don t want this to happen take their advice Organize I m pessimistic that we can evolve capitalism fast enough to stop the destruction of our home In America especially we care primarily about the economic system the capital markets and whether our retirement is secure in a community with a golf course Hyperbolic barely When one reads the literature one sees that we ve exceeded the planetary boundaries in 7 out of 9 categories Let s go for 9 out of nine Using a cloth bag and driving a Prius will delay it by three months perhaps Wake up folks Honestly we ve exceeded 7 out of 9 planetary boundaries according to recent research What is it we don t understand about that And the real problem is the Earth s systems have absorbed an extraordinary amount of disturbance but the interconnections are getting real problem is the Earth s systems have absorbed an extraordinary amount of disturbance but the interconnections are getting tight and the positive feedback loops are accelerating What is it that we don t getWe have Summary yet to imagine a rich and wonderful life with fewer resources It s simply a failure of our imaginations Once we ve lived the good life we don t want to change And therein lies the problem The status uo is always easier Ifou believe the world works according to Newtonian mechanics it s inertia of rest from which we suffer Change is the only thing on which we can depend The authors offer us a path of deep green resistance It is not a path most people want to take because it s difficult and demands sacrifices In a culture that works hard to pacify us into a soporific passivity this is a call to armsAre The Janitor (The Contenders, you in I ve had to revise my rating and want to say why I revisited the book s accompanying website for some unrelated research and saw that they had updated some of their information Keep in mind they consider this essential to their movement and organizationThere is now a feminism FA featuring prominently the uestion Why areou accused of being transphobic The answer paraphrased It s because we *Re Actually Really Transphobic *actually really transphobic doesn t exist and trans people are just delusional Gender dysphoria doesn t exist and transition makes people miserable Here are some highly selective anecdotes Also Night Without Stars yes third genders and trans people exist in other cultures all over the world and we can t comment on that but we CAN say that ifou are western it doesn t apply to Lamore tra i polli you It s also deeply ableist in its casual acceptance of the disposability of disabled and chronically ill lives Jensen s internalized ableism does not in any way rectify their hatefulness It s so ugly and bigoted and I just can t support anything associated with this atrocious movement note Tenears on from publication no Deep Ecological Warfare in sight Whatever abovegroundunderground cells they ve been putting together where they plot and discuss their plans to blow things up nothing has been blown up et It s almost like DGR is less a credible campaign to end industrial civilization and a way for a bunch of eco fascist alt right nobodies to get together and talk shit about trans people vegans and disabled folks while pretending that they re on the moral high groundThis is the third Derrick Jensen book I ve decided to inflict on myself but probably not the last They each start with great promise and by the end descend to infuriating illogical leaps and this one was no different it is the promise of each that lures me into trying again However For ears Derrick Jensen has asked his audiences Do Pack Up the Moon you think this culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of life No one ever saysesDeep Green Resistance starts where the environmental movement leaves off industrial civilization is incompatible with life Technology can't fix it and sh. .
