Peak Moment 200: “Is the world a better place because you were born?” asks author Derrick Jensen. He contrasts sustainable indigenous cultures, who enrich their habitat, with the current “dominant culture destroying everything.” He explores how industrial civilization is inherently violent, turning people into objects and the earth into stuff.

His books include A Language Older Than Words, Culture of Make Believe, and Endgame.
