  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?

  Pleistocene wolf head found
Posted by: Odin - Sat, 08 Jun 2019 03:36:58 +0000, 03:36 AM - Forum: Environment - No Replies

A 40,000 year old fully intact wolf head was found in northern Siberia last year. Japanese scientists have now had a chance to examine it.

The severed head of the world’s first full-sized Pleistocene wolf was unearthed in the Abyisky district in the north of Yakutia.

Local man Pavel Efimov found it in summer 2018 on shore of the Tirekhtyakh River, tributary of Indigirka.

The wolf, whose rich mammoth-like fur and impressive fangs are still intact, was fully grown and aged from two to four years old when it died.
