Browsing the internet today, I read this interesting exchange of “Letters” between Paul Kingsnorth and George Monbiot. The blog entry Is there any point in fighting to stave off industrial apocalypse? can be found on the Guardian website. In the blog entry the argument leads to the collapse of civilization will bring us a saner world, says Paul Kingsnorth. No, counters George Monbiot – we can’t let billions perish.
