Thinking Allowed: Body, Nature and the Hypermodern World (Charlene Spretnak) – Part 2 (2000)
What or who are the casualties of modernity? Charlene Spretnak and host Jeffrey Mishlove continue their discussion on the "crisis of modernity."
They discuss the rights of indigenous groups who have been trampled by modernity. Spretnak explains the recent prospects of human rights and independence, saying that indigenous people have a right to the land, especially since, unlike modern cultures, they hold more respect for nature.
The modern view of nature, where civilization is placed above it, is simply not sustainable. Spretnak reads Modernity Is to Us as Water to a Fish, a piece from her book, The Resurgence of the Real, explaining how modernity is all around us, influencing our thinking, while we remain unaware of its presence or its casualties.
