Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.The winds will blow their own freshness into you… while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
~ John Muir
When civilization ends, the living world will rejoice. We must be biophilic people in order to survive. Those of us who have forgotten how must learn again to live with the land and air and water and creatures around us in communities built on respect and thanksgiving.
Right now, industrial civilization is killing all life on our planet, driving to extinction 200 species per day - and it won’t stop voluntarily. 98% of old-growth forests have been murdered for civilization’s insatiable need for land and “resources.” Global warming is happening now, at an astounding speed. The only honest solution is to stop industrial civilization from burning fossil fuels.
Most consumption is based on violence against people (human and non-human) and on degrading landbases across the planet. Life on Earth is more important than this insane, temporary culture based on hyper-exploitation of finite resources. This culture needs to be destroyed before it consumes all life on this planet.
Humanity is not the same as civilization. Humans have developed many sane and sustainable cultures, themselves at risk from civilization.
Most people know this culture is insane and needs radical change, but don’t see any way to bring the change about. Unlike most environmental and social justice organizations, Deep Green Resistance questions the existence and necessity of civilization itself. Our 100% volunteer-run movement offers organized, reliable ways to promote sane ways of living and surviving the ongoing crisis. And we have a realistic plan to stop the insanity, this strategy is called Decisive Ecological Warfare.
