  How to Prepare Now for the End of the World
Posted by: Odin - Mon, 09 Mar 2020 19:09:40 +0000, 07:09 PM - Forum: Skills & Decivilising - No Replies

From the New York Times...

OKANOGAN COUNTY, Wash. — When the end comes, some will not be waiting in a bunker for a savior. They will stride out into the wilderness with confidence, ready to hunt and kill a deer, tan its hide and sleep easily in a hand-built shelter, close by a fire they made from the force of their two palms on a stick.

Four hours from the Seattle airport, in a valley called Methow, near a town called Twisp, Lynx Vilden was teaching people how to live in the wild, like we imagine Stone Age people did. Not so they could get better at living in cities, or so they could be better competitors in Silicon Valley or Wall Street.

“I don’t want to be teaching people how to survive and then come back to civilization,” Lynx said. “What if we don’t want to come back to civilization?”

  Aragorn! has died
Posted by: Odin - Sun, 16 Feb 2020 06:48:30 +0000, 06:48 AM - Forum: News & Action - Replies (1)

At 10:26pm on Thursday February 13 Aragorn! walked on. After a debilitating stroke he baffled his doctors by dying and self resuscitating twice, then finally passed peacefully in his sleep.

A memorial will be held at a date to be determined. Watch here for more information.
If you have photos we would like them. You can send them to info@littleblackcart.com

He requests that memes be made about his death.


I didn't know Aragorn!, but I corresponded with him a few times. He contributed a lot to the anarchist publishing world, most notably Little Black Cart. Aragorn! also was connected to anarchist news in some way that I never exactly understood. I liked some of his podcast episodes (The Brilliant) when he had interesting guests on. For the most part, his eclectic nihilistic approach to anarchy was somewhat confusing for me to follow. He seemed to hate primitivism, yet harbored many anti-civ sentiments in his outlook.

  Book on Hunter-Gatherer Sharing
Posted by: Odin - Thu, 13 Feb 2020 17:01:05 +0000, 05:01 PM - Forum: Anthropology & History - Replies (2)

I just received notice from ISHGR (International Society for Hunter Gatherer Research) that a new book has been published by the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research. It is open access and free to the public, made possible by a grant from the European Union.

I've skimmed through it and the essays seem interesting. The book covers the concept of sharing from prehistoric to historic ethnographic times. There are lots of color photos, charts, diagrams, graphs, and maps. It isn't a dry academic book.

Towards a Broader View of Hunter Gatherer Sharing

  reaching out
Posted by: hickman - Sun, 26 Jan 2020 18:45:30 +0000, 06:45 PM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hello to all users of this forum; I am happy to have come across it. 
While it does not seem to be terribly active, this may be for the better - I would prefer a slow drip of interesting words to ponder than a ridiculous stream of incomprehensible babble. 
I am on this site primarily for two reasons: for the first, while I've been active in other forums which served to sate my interest in having discussions of a primitivist nature - discussions which are often all-too-challenging to have in real life - those forums ceased to be useful to me. Both Squattheplanet and various communities on reddit are now dead to me, compromised. My second interest in being here is to reach out to those who may be local to me, that we might be able to meet in the real world of flesh and blood, to align ourselves in our projects. That is why I am unafraid to use my name here, and my email - I am at this point, more than a dangerous radical, a gardener and nut farmer making gentle, slow preparations for the Balkanization of the United States. I want to nurture whatever lands I live upon to be forgiving to those who remain when the power goes down, when Wal-Mart is no longer stocked, and when a vast chasm of time stands before our children and friends, when all human parties say - what now?
Presently, I am located in Michigan, but only temporarily. My home is in New York State's vast and unknown North Country, and that is where I will soon live and someday die. For those who are located within a few days distance by bicycle or less, I implore you to reach out. Many of the users here are doubtless aware of how hermitic the primitvist life "way upcountry" can be, and I hope our connections here can serve to alleviate some of that isolation. 

With respect and warmth,
