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

  The infant mortality question
Posted by: JUGENDHOC - Tue, 16 Jul 2019 09:21:16 +0000, 09:21 AM - Forum: Anthropology & History - Replies (5)

I don't like the fact that in primitive society (in some cases) almost half of all kids died very early.

How do we respond to this? It's a common man critique of reversing Industrial society

Hi I joined this forum because I feel that industrial-technological society reduces our freedom, destroys our bodies, enslaves our mind and creates meaninglessness. I want a new society with a radical evaluation of this the place of technology in society. 

Politically I've been everything from a Marxist-Leninist, NeoLiberal and a Fascist. 
What sparked my interest in anti-technology was my innate distaste towards automation, Ted Kaczynski and John Zerzan. 

I want to learn more about how we could alter our current situation.

My main issues with "full" Anarcho-Primitivism are some of the things mentioned in this article; https://quillette.com/2017/12/16/romanticizing-hunter-gatherer/ 

-Infant mortality,
-Violence, 
-Excessive work.

Thank you for reading, JUGENDHOC

  Anews TOTW: civ or anti-civ, and models for behaviour...
Posted by: rocinante - Mon, 08 Jul 2019 20:21:38 +0000, 08:21 PM - Forum: News & Action - No Replies

A new topic of the week posted over on anarchist news dot org:
https://anarchistnews.org/content/totw-c...-behaviour

What is the ratio here of civ to anti-civ folks? What are you, dear reader? What does civilization mean to you, and what does anti-civ mean? And a different but related question: what model do you base a better human world on? Ants? Bees? Plants? Bacteria? Better humans than the ones who surround you? Software? Programmers? What actual interactions that exist in the world do you think give a good picture of what people/anarchists could/would do with each other in a better world?
