I consider this a Radical Gumbo, with many varied ingredients making more than the sum of its parts. We are no-holds barred, passionate and not overly PC here. Yes, Liberals can have Fangs. Jump in and be part of the cutting edge!
That is one of many quotes you'll hear in this Q & A session with "anarcho-primitivist" writer Derrick Jensen, author of A Language Older Than Words and Culture of Make Believe--two books that should be required reading. The topics range from religion, patriarchy, the liberal corporate media (e.g., the Nation, MSNBC, et al.), rape, power and submission, liberals, racist cops, resisting state/patriarchal/capitalist violence, teaching writing, love, depraved capitalist sociopaths, bringing down civilization, activist tactics, revolution, the cognitive dissonance that results from being an anarchist living in a capitalist dictatorship, technology, imperialism and much more. He has a touch of ADD, which I love. Enjoy!

R.D. Laing began his extraordinary The Politics of Experience with: "Few books today, are forgivable." He wrote this, I believe, because we have become very alienated from our own experience, from whom we are, and this alienation is so destructive to others and to ourselves, that if a book does not take this alienation as its starting point and work toward rectifying it, we'd all be better off looking at blank pieces of paper.--D.J.
