The epilogue brings the analysis to the present. It begins by outlining the geographies of terror that have been produced in the Pacific Coast region since the late 1990s as the result of an aggressive return to extractive economic practices, specifically oil palm cultivation and mechanical gold mining. These changing economic, social, and political relations in the region have led to the killing of activists, massacres of entire communities, and massive forced displacement. The epilogue juxtaposes this dehumanizing condition and relentless environmental destruction to the progressive spirit and winds of hope that blew across the Pacific lowlands in the early 1990s.
