END:CIV Resist or Die
by Franklin Lopez

This amazing film examines our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. But it’s more than a film. It’s a movement. You can feel the anger and the urgency in every scene. The film takes you on a whirlwind ride of emotion as you view the destruction that civilization has caused to the Earth and humanity. Even though most of this film may be old information for those of us who keep on top of social, economic, political, environmental, and ecological collapse, the way it’s presented is so visceral that it will feed your inner revolutionary. After watching this film, you may immediately want to get out and fight the capitalist system that’s causing so much suffering and death in the world. The film calls on us to act as if we truly love this land. It’s so invigorating to see the opinions of direct action activists finally put on the screen. There is no walking on eggs in this movie. It doesn’t hide the fact that violence must be used to stop these out-of-control political systems from killing us all. This film does an amazing job at putting forth some of the key arguments of Derrick Jensen’s End Game. Derrick Jensen famously says: “If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?” Everyone should see this film and join the movement to end the tyranny that is civiLIEzation.
