Ecodefense is a bit outdated, 1993, like sabotage it is reminiscent of the 1990’s idealism of direct action. A source of basic knowledge that should be taken in stride. Not everything applies to current society so read with reservation. Here is the first paragraph introduction:
Ecodefense is a historical artifact. It be argued that it is the most controversial environmental book ever published; more importantly, though, it is a key exhibit in the legal history of freedom of the press in the United States. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified in 1791. It reads in part, “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” That enshrined freedom of the press and speech sets the United States of America apart from all other nations. No other country so jealously defends the right of its citizens to speak and publish controversial ideas.
