Whilst remaining mindful of the strands of modernity and counter-modernity that cherish and praise "nature," I want to remain with the fact that the banner of progress has been accompanied by massive violence in forms that include genocide, ecocide, ethnocide and speciocide. Further, every great act of violence has been framed within modernity as a way of improving life.
