Anarcho-Primitivism

"We can either passively continue on the road to utter domestication and destruction or turn in the direction of joyful upheaval, passionate and feral embrace of wildness and life that aims at dancing on the ruins of clocks, computers and that failure of imagination and will called work."

Anarcho-Primitivism (AnPrim) is an Anarchist, economically undefined and anti-technological ideology. It is based upon the belief that technological advancement fundamentally leads to a lifestyle which is either unfulfilling and/or authoritarian, and that to achieve a free society, technology must be rejected.

While often portrayed as an anprim, Theodore Kaczyński publicly called out primitivists and is actually an anarchist Neo-Luddite.

History

Anarcho-Primitivism formally started with John Zerzan who in the 80s broke with traditional Autonomism with his writings on civilization in which he sharply critiqued and analyzed the arising of civilization, capital, and language connecting each of these.

His beliefs would be relatively unknown except within niche Autonomist, Hippie, and student circles. It was only during and after the trial of the Unabomber that his ideas would reach the mainstream and find popularity outside of these circles.

Beliefs

Domestication of the Human through Capital

Former Left Communist, Jaques Camatte framed capital as a extremely totalizing force, which through training the human with work, education, and technology was able to domesticate the human towards the ends of capital, thus making any resistance to capital futile.

Personality and Behaviour

AnPrim is represented as a primitive hunter-gatherer who will act with extreme anger at any sort of technology, often trying to destroy it. He is said to worship the "Sun god" and "Moon God." He also says "Ooga" and "Booga" a lot.
