The anarchists library is great because some of it is good but most of it is just buckwild shit. Like this essay written by an anti-civilization primitivist who thinks all symbolic thought is bad. theanarchistlibrary.org/librar

Broke: I hate the state
Woke: I hate technology
Bespoke: I hate LETTERS

This dude is going on and on about how neanderthals were more advanced because they had no need for tools or symbolism and it's so obvious he has never once gone camping in his life

Primitivists are honestly hilarious to me because "State societies are an inevitable result of using tools" is like, some Galaxy Brain shit on par with "I'm immortal because I have never died before."

It's time for one of my all time favorite memes again

I can't believe that there are actually people who think that living in a hierarchical society is somehow worse than having all the water you drink for the rest of your life contain some percentage of dirt and/or shit

Thesis: grungy hippies
Antithesis: armchair philosophers
Synthesis: primitivists

@dayglochainsaw
Yup. As if we studied Maslow's hierarchy of needs to then toss everything to the garbage.

@dayglochainsaw haha this is the first I've heard of anprims and this image literally is the first thing you see when you google it

@dayglochainsaw i was just talking to my friend about this. bsst meme ever

@dayglochainsaw anprim is for people who turned "having a zombie survival plan" during high school into their entire personality.

@dayglochainsaw I keep thinking about Thoureau's Walden, where he lived in the woods for two years to learn about primitive simplicity and self-reliance -- but he had material help from his mom, his friend, and Mr and Mrs Ralph Waldo Emerson.

@brownpau @dayglochainsaw Yeah at that point you're not a survivor that's just an extended camping trip, hah.

@dayglochainsaw Coats, knives, and shoes are technology. Anprims are very special kind of retarded.
