Against Civilization

This is Radio Ecoshock. I'm Alex Smith, with an in-depth look at the works of deep green writer Derrick Jensen, an interview with film maker Lopez, and a series of ugly questions for impossible times.

After we learn a bit about the film's inspiration, Deep Green thinker Derrick Jensen, and talk with Frank Lopez - I've left some time to let out a Net rumor (again!) that the U.S. military might call home troops to put down people rioting in the streets, in an upcoming economic collapse. Do riots work?

The friendly voice you hear in this week's program is Franklin Lopez. He created a video argument for ending civilization. Kick it over - before we kill again.

That all came out in his new movie "End:Civ" - standing for End Civilization.

You get an in-depth interview from the anarchist-activist point of view.

Then I ramble off into "breaking news" that the U.S. military is planning to control American cities in case the economy crumbles suddenly, and mobs take to the streets. We'll track down the source of all that, and what it means.
