This is a provoking 1 hr interview with Godfrey Reggio, director of the Qatsi Trilogy (referred by an episode of John Zerzan’s Anarchist Radio). He mentions:

+ As the population has increased, languages have decreased.
+ Text & texture
+ A way of living that calls for another way of living.
+ Techno-facism
+ Utopia as an enemy
+ Humans on the top of the list as a potential endangered species
+ Global surveillance & commodifying data
+ Endeavors of “mass man” (capital/giant corporations+gov,China dam)
+ What people claimed the gods did in the past, we claim to do now.
+ We are the frog in the slowly boiling pot of water.
+ We are the aliens we think exist outside of ourselves.
+ Leap and the net shall appear
