End Game

I keep picking up Deep Green Resistance and reading a few pages, then putting it down for a few days, unable to hold on to the required sense of urgency.

I go back to thinking about my job, home improvement, finding more work, the Peace Movement, the tv show, family and friends, and politics.

But then I go back it.  Some subconscious assessment of the world is setting off an alarm in my mind and I can't turn it off.

"Industrialism itself is what has to stop.  There is no kinder, greener version of it that will leave us a living planet."
Keith, L, Deep Green Resistance, "The Problem," Seven Stories Press, NY, 2011; p. 21.
