Pretend..


“Pretend you are not civilized.

Pretend you love the land where you live.

Pretend you were never taught to value economic production over life, or pretend you unlearned this.

Pretend you were never taught that everyone else is here for you to use, or pretend you unlearned this.

Pretend you do not feel entitled to take from those around you.

Pretend you know that someday you will die.

Pretend you are not separate from your landbase, but a part of it, as it is a part of you.

Pretend you ware taught to take care of your landbase as though your life depends on it.

Pretend that’s what you do.”

-Derrick Jensen
