Age which I find to be distinctly alienating as at times she literally uates the term insane with sociopathAnd honestly I don t know why a book about Desert Kings (Deathlands, 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 year in the US alone seriously when they say they re sad that animal species are goingxtinct or that they wonder why overfishing occurs I also can t take her seriously when I assume from the Vegetarian Myth that she only An Officer and a Spy ever ate bread and lettuce while vegan when she says things like veganism causes general lassitude or that a foodthic 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 at nough protein and fat See for Ooko 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 theyat 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 Naked exhausted humans on the planet as minute to minute their bodies cannot access thenergy they need to function What Please tell that to all of the athletic fat people or non athletic fat people who are not continuously Shadow Scale (Seraphina, exhausted Finally Keith wraps up this section stating that food should be a nourishing and nurturing part of our culture but clearly not when people are so afraid of being fat that they spend the better part of their 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 withoutlectricity or using our cars as we had to Claim The Crown 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 inlectricityAnd 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 Nerds everyonelse I guess she just has an inferiority complex which leads her to hang out with vegans new agers and yoga aficionadosThis book criticizes nearly In the Shadow of the Crown (Queens of England, every radical and counter cultural movement in the past with a fewxceptions 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 young people and Timothy Leary sucked ED I really wonder what they would say about Occupy Bark 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 commitnvironmental crimes should be xecuted 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.

Ing order but the authors make a passionate and convincing case for its feasibility and its necessity As with most books by this trio of authors I disliked Deep Green Resistance First let me xplain 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 tell you the fundamental problem I have with this book and with anything Hello, Hippo! Goodbye, Bird! 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 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 txplain 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 Cannibal 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 toat For some reason the idea of going back to an age where a simple infected cut could kill me isn t too Mastered (The Enforcers, 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 mutuallyxclusive categories They do not Man, Son of Man explain how a population reduction might occur but state that it is necessaryxcept 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 If you think that through you can imagine that the people that Jensen Alter Ego et al would least like to remain on the planet will be those with the most resources tonsure 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 you re a member of the global poor The authors also mention that our goal is not to bring down the US government or any government which is probably necessary to say to cover their asses but is ntirely antithetical to the idea of bringing down civilization as we know itDeep Green Resistance and most of Jensen s books mploy many rhetorical devices without a lot of facts relevant citations or follow up For Uncommon Wisdom 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 you 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 langu.
