Strangely Like War by Derrick Jensen


Derrick Jensen is one of those that fight to reclaim freedom. Whether or not he explicitly says this, he fights for those still very young or still to be born. Derrick does not turn his back on the future. Thus, he is the prolific author of revolutionary books (the url for the website listing Derrick's books is at the end of the article)

One of them, A Language Older than Words, is described on Derrick's website as follows:

At once a beautifully poetic memoir and an exploration of the various ways we live in the world, A Language Older than Words explains violence as a pathology that touches every aspect of our lives, and indeed affects all aspects of life on earth. This chronicle of a young man's drive to transcend domestic abuse offers a challenging look at our worldwide sense of community, and how we can make things better.

In this book, Derrick shares his story about being abused as a child. Could there be a relationship between the rape of the Earth and the rape of a young boy, man, girl or woman? Dare we speak out? And if we do speak out?
