It is a book that you should add to your reading list.

Jensen's ideas will be revisited by those of us who take our role in the future (i.e., becoming part of a solution) seriously.

Robert Jensen transfers general thinking on apocalypse from thoughts of impending disaster to the concept of removing veils of prejudice and ignorance so that we might more clearly perceive the continuing struggle against domination by the powerful and well-placed over the remainder of society. In his words,"to get apocalyptic means seeing clearly and recommitting to core values."

We do not face the end of this world, but the "end of human systems that structure our politics, economics, and social life" for the benefit of the few against the many. Thinking apocalyptically is not necessarily religious in nature, but is common sense applied where it is needed.

Read this book! You will enjoy it as it awakens you to new ways of looking at the present world chaos.

Robert Jensen wrote a very good explanation of the issues and emotions that are guiding us to the great changes of the future which he calls Apocalyptic, which he defines in non-religious terms. The changes will be momentous and challenging.
Worth the read by anyone wanting to understand.

The message was one I agreed with, but the book was an essay on the need to prepare for a battle against conservatives that has been going on for a long time. It took an hour to read, and didn't qualify as a book I should have been spending time with. Just didn't learn a lot that I didn't already know.

These are the revelations that the world needs to hear and act upon. And I would prefer to go down fighting than to accept the inevitable

this is not a light read, not is it a happy one. However, as dire as the situation is we find ourselves especially wrt to anthropogenic climate change, it is pragmatic and as hopeful as it could possibly be. Jensen does a yeoman job of clearly, directly, and in plain language, telling the steps to fully acknowledging the pickle we've made for ourselves, and offers solutions.
