Derrick Jensen: The Collapse of Civilization and the Rebirth of Community
Derrick Jensen is the author of Language Older than Words, A Culture of Make Believe, Endgame Volume 1: The Problem of Civilization and Endgame volume 2: Resistance, among many others.
He came to Guelph in early April, and spoke at length about the topics in Endgame, including the underlying premises of civilization as he sees it, the futility of non-violent business-as-usual strategies to solve the ecological and political problems we face, hierarchies, violence, hope, and much more.

Not all of the concurrent parts match up fluidly due to gaps in the recording. And in part 5, at around 12 minutes, there is a break in the talk, so it may not be the best if you're playing it on your own radio show. Also, parts 5 and 6 are not in stereo for some reason.
