A viral Kindle Political Spirituality in an Age of Eco-Apocalypse: Communication and Struggle Across Species, Cultures, and Religions A DNF for me. There were some good points here, but I couldn't reconcile the fact that overpopulation wasn't addressed well enough. Basically, not at all. In the index, "overpopulation" isn't even mentioned. Instead, you find an entry for "Population overshoot." What a polite way to dance around the fact we're already overpopulated. It's *overshot.* Not overshoot. If we want to avoid total eco-apocalypse, then birth control and natalism need to be addressed as basic talking points (also not entries). They, too, would help us explore what it means to be human. He talked about consumer culture enough and hunter-gatherers. But what propels our species to breed not only others to death but ourselves? Can we not talk about that? That seems to be the real problem here. Perkins tries to get us to focus how our human species interacts with others, but ignores the fact that there are too many of us around to actually do what he's recommending. Well, maybe not "ignores." More like conveniently avoids. I'm just looking for something more direct. I had hoped this book would be it. It wasn't.
