“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Tim's Holiday Lectures Gift 11: Solidarity with Nonhuman People (mp3)

Oh dear this was a real tragedy. The q&a for this lecture at York University in Canada on May 19 was the best best best of the whole year. But as you'll hear, my battery ran out a little way into my lecture. It gives you a good idea of the outline of my book for Verso, however. And you'll hear Marcus Boon, who's awesome, and Sabrina Scott cheering (and she is also awesome).

I've spent months and months reconstructing that q&a in my head in order to write my book...
