  Do Civilizations Actually Collapse?
Posted by: Odin - Tue, 29 Oct 2019 15:56:38 +0000, 03:56 PM - Forum: Anthropology & History - No Replies

Do Civilizations Collapse?

By Guy Middleton

In The Travels of Persiles and Sigismund (1617), Miguel de Cervantes wrote: ‘Prudent men should judge of future events by what has taken place in the past and what is taking place in the present …’ Looking around us, we can see the trouble we are in, we can see the threats to our overpopulated world, to our overly complex and thus increasingly vulnerable society and way of life. We do not need to make other peoples’ histories into lessons for ourselves. When the evidence for environmentally driven collapses in the past is so weak, and the evidence for contact-era atrocities so strong, it is a wonder that the former is the focus and the lesson, rather than the latter. Perhaps we should be asking ourselves what exactly we should be learning from history.

  Civilized to Death
Posted by: Odin - Thu, 24 Oct 2019 04:25:28 +0000, 04:25 AM - Forum: Anthropology & History - No Replies

A new book by psychologist Christopher Ryan called Civilized to Death

"Most of us have instinctive evidence the world is ending—balmy December days, face-to-face conversation replaced with heads-to-screens zomboidism, a world at constant war, a political system in disarray. We hear some myths and lies so frequently that they feel like truths: Civilization is humankind’s greatest accomplishment. Progress is undeniable. Count your blessings. You’re lucky to be alive here and now. Well, maybe we are and maybe we aren’t. Civilized to Death counters the idea that progress is inherently good, arguing that the “progress” defining our age is analogous to an advancing disease.

Prehistoric life, of course, was not without serious dangers and disadvantages. Many babies died in infancy. A broken bone, infected wound, snakebite, or difficult pregnancy could be life-threatening. But ultimately, Ryan argues, were these pre-civilized dangers more murderous than modern scourges, such as car accidents, cancers, cardiovascular disease, and a technologically prolonged dying process? At a time when our ecology, our society, and our own sense of selves feels increasingly imperiled, an accurate understanding of our species’ long prelude to civilization is vital to a clear sense of the ultimate value of civilization—and its costs. In Civilized to Death, Ryan makes the claim that we should start looking backwards to find our way into a better future"

  John A Livingston - audio lecture
Posted by: Odin - Mon, 21 Oct 2019 18:44:46 +0000, 06:44 PM - Forum: Environment - No Replies

A rare audio recording from York University (Toronto, Canada) 1988.

Lecture on Cultural and Historical Perspectives on Nature - 9 part series.

This one (5) is on Domestication. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yM0RGKLZDK0

John A Livingston (1923 - 2006) was a Canadian wildlife biologist, naturalist and voice-over broadcaster with the CBC (Canadian Broadcast Corporation). He was one of my early influences in my thinking about the environment. His books include The Fallacy of Wildlife Conservation, and Rogue Primate (probably his best known work).

Might be a good time to share intel with comrades. There's a bunch of high profile leaches out there that we all know one way or another. Get their info out there amongst us all. Soon we'll put it all in the open. The slimey ones are gearing up to hide.  They have their little workers watching out for them. Post the info on the workers too. Get the specifics out to your friends now.

  Against Civilization Brazil (contraciv)
Posted by: janosbiro - Sat, 31 Aug 2019 11:52:23 +0000, 11:52 AM - Forum: Introductions - No Replies

Hi,

Contraciv is an eco-anarchist anticiv collective that maintains an website in Portuguese, with translations and original works about anarchy and civilization critique, both in plain text and in PDF. We translated mostly John Zerzan. We also print and distribute small publications of these texts, and engage in dialogue with our local context and social movements to raise the discussion about civilization.

Visit our site: https://contraciv.noblogs.org/

We accept suggestions and contributions.

  Red flag gun "law":
Posted by: Hoot - Tue, 06 Aug 2019 17:01:20 +0000, 05:01 PM - Forum: Politics - Replies (1)

The clown spoke yesterday. The state is desperate.

                    So we can guess that the state is feeling threatened ? We know it could give 2 shits about people's well being. So the state will always look for opportunities, whether staged or not, to help itself. Especially if it is feeling threatened. I'll bet it is.
                      The 2 recent shootings in El Paso and Ohio were a good enough excuse for the fat ass clown to take bigger steps.  "Red Flag" gun legislation is what the state needs. It's funny how they emphasize racism as a motivator for these crimes, as a way to pull at the heart strings of the liberals and at the same time talk about not reducing your ability to obtain firearms. Which is warming to the boot-licking conservatives. 
                      Red Flag "laws" are fucked because the system can decide who is a threat (red flag), and why. Another not-so obvious problem to this proposal is HOW they will find the "red flags" AND how they will have the ability to use false accusations or "parallel construction" tactics to frame people. Although at this point the system may not care if the masses know that they are using highly invasive surveillance techniques to find red flags. There is an acceptance of the surveillance state that is being pushed quite heavily now: ring doorbell, cameras everywhere,license plate readers,facial recognition,etc..see something/say something. Lots of people guilty of being dissidents. The "Red Flag" law goes right along with the "Red List". I don't think any of us have avoided that. 
                                               https://www.nhfc-ontarget.org/wp-content...cation.pdf
                      This is just an alert that the clown knows his weaknesses have been found. Repression will be going up a notch or 2. Other than that,    carry on.
                                                                                                  Hoot!

I've been studying anti-civ theory for a bit and like the idea of post-civ. I guess I would consider myself that. I'm not anti technology, medicine, or science by any means. I Invision a world where everyone lives in communal Eco villages and technology is used in limitation. Hoping I can learn something here.

I am anarchist for more than 20 years.

Initially very impregnated by the very rich French and Belgian anarchist culture. I am strongly interested today because it happens elsewhere in the world. Green anarchism and the anticivil movement are, in my opinion, the worthy heirs of the French "naturiens" individualist anarchists of the late 19th century. The truth is very close to that. I adhere to 100% !!!

  Yank Needs Help
Posted by: Odin - Sun, 28 Jul 2019 08:20:00 +0000, 08:20 AM - Forum: Everything else - Replies (3)

Interesting....

Kevin Tucker and I, Yank, are married (soon divorced) and were together for 20 years. We have two beautiful daughters together. I am a private person and Kevin knows this and takes advantage of this fact, but I feel it is time to come out and speak, especially since placed in a difficult situation.

Over the past few years things between Kevin and I have increasingly become strained. I did notice that I was growing distant from him as I was starting to see certain aspects of his personality that I did not care for. He is impatient with our children and him and our daughter, Mica, have moments where their relationship is strained as well––not to say that they don’t love each other, they absolutely do, but his patience is thin. A lot of it is due to his addiction to technology, he constantly has a screen in his face. I tried addressing these issues with him along with other issues but he failed to communicate with me about it, instead he ignored it, said he didn't want to talk about it, and/or got defensive. When I found out that he was cheating, that’s when I ended things. We did remain friends and co-parented while still living together. Of course there were ups and downs during this time but we made it work well enough. At the beginning of this year, 2019, Kevin asked if I would give him another chance, so I agreed but said we needed to work on communication and that we would keep our relationship quiet while we went through a year long trial period. Eventually his behavior began to grow suspicious and I broke it off after 6-7 months. His suspicious behavior turned out to be him cheating on me again.

Which leads us to now. As an anarchist, even though I don’t give myself a title, I don’t believe in the system and want nothing to do with it. I have tried to compromise with Kevin about how to proceed with custody but he isn’t willing to work with me. Kevin is controlling and it is either his way or no way. I've even agreed to move to Pennsylvania where he wants to move, but I do not. Kevin comes from a very wealthy family and they will provide him with a lawyer. I, on the other hand, come from poverty and I’m in limbo with a move, and so don’t have the funds to get a good lawyer without going in debt.

I need a lawyer and that’s the reason for me putting myself out here like this and displaying my private life. I desperately need help, I need to raise $5,000. I will use what is needed for a lawyer to get me through this and if any money is leftover, I will donate it to Survival International.

This isn’t easy for me to do and is greatly upsetting. If it were up to me, I would work this out another way and would leave the system out of it. Unfortunately it is not up to me. There are those who walk their talk, and then there are others who just talk. Sadly Kevin is the latter.

Please, if you can donate, it would be more than appreciated. I just want a fresh start and a peaceful space for me and my daughters. Much love to those who have listened and to those who donated.

And I know there are people out there reading this who know and consider both of us friends, I’m not asking for anyone to take sides, I’m just asking for financial help and catching everyone up on what is happening between us since most people are in the dark. And please, if you have any advice, feel free to contact me.

Forever grateful,
Yank
