'Life Is Tenacious. Life Is Fragile'

The prolific, incisive Derrick Jensen expounds on the nature of Nature in an essay from the latest Orion Magazine:


Jensen also has a new volume out, "What We Leave Behind." He is one of the most powerful, intense writers I know of addressing American and human culture. In fact I can barely read him anymore his content, revolutionary and anarchist as it is, is so depressing to contemplate! ...It's not that I find his strident, calamitous assessment of matters so inherently wrong, but rather my nervousness that he could just possibly be right.
