Documentary "The End of Civilization" (Franklin Lopez) 2011

If your native land captured by aliens, who have destroyed forests and poisoned food stocks, would you resist? If beings from outer space have made the water so toxic that you would not even think about might be to drink it, you would have tried to stop them? If the monster sprayed toxic chemicals that would cause cancer in people you love, you have fought with them? These are not empty questions. All this is happening now, except that there is no newcomers. Culture, groomed us from birth - a murderer.

END: CIV illustrates the brutality of civilization, dependent on systematic violence and destruction of the environment, and the heroism of all those who oppose it face to face.Fast graphics, interviews, surveys and military satire mocked the excesses of the global economic system, even while it crumbles around us.

She dies, but not fast enough.

Jensen asks: "If civilization will last another following one or two hundred years, then people will say there about us:" Why they did not destroy it? "Will they also are angry at us, as I am angry at those who came before me and did not has made? I can very clearly hear the voices of those who will live after us, saying: "If they killed her in our soil continues to live earthworms to feed her.We would still have been mammoth forest and oaks in California. We would still live frogs. And other amphibians. I'm hungry, because the river is no longer usual salmon, and you're allowed to destroy the whole salmon to rich people had cheap electricity for aluminum smelters. Damn. Be all you're damned. "
