It could be that the author/environmental activist, Derrick Jensen, is new to you or maybe you're familiar with his work.  Either way, I'd like to share some links to his material.

He impresses me with his straight-forward, logical approach and softly-spoken words.  And so, here are a few ways you can get your dose of Derrick...

Owned & Operated

Owned & Operated is a mosaic of the world through the lens of the internet. Showing our lives as consumers, under the thumbs of privileged individuals and their methods of control.

On Modern Servitude

Hi All-

(Berry, please don't give up posting - I had a hard time with this post too - I expect that the g-spot is getting a bit too big for it's britches, i.e. popular for it's servers)

This film makes the point that elections only give us the illusion of free choice, thereby depriving us of the essential information we need to become free - that we are slaves. The recognition that we live in modern servitude is the first step toward freedom.
