How to Destroy Civilization

"Do you believe that our culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of living?" asks author and radical environmentalist Derrick Jensen. He doesn't think so either, and that's why every time a sweet little granny buys his two-volume Endgame from Barnes and Noble, an anarchist gets a patch. The idea is simple: Our current civilization is so deeply rooted in violence and exploitation (toward the poor and Mother Nature) that any thinking citizen should respond in kind. And yes, he does mean you should blow shit up if necessary. You may never agree, but something inside you will be glad you considered Jensen's ideas. Rip off your blinders and hear the clarion call for punks and tree-sitters everywhere: Things will not get better on their own. And now you don't even have to pick up a fat book bearing the stain of corporate clear-cuts: Endgame has been made into a movie, END:CIV, showing in a free screening and discussion on Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. at Sweat Records (5505 NE Second Ave., Miami). Donations for the filmmaker will be accepted. Visit endciv.com, or call Sweat at 786-693-9309. Good luck out there.
