Anti-civ goes pop - alexander - Wed, 12 Dec 2018 09:54:32 +0000

«Children of Ted: Two decades after his last deadly act of ecoterrorism, the Unabomber has become an unlikely prophet to a new generation of acolytes.»

This article has got Kaczynski, Jacobi, Kingsnorth, DGR, Atassa, ITS—in mainstream media. It's kind of odd. Of course it is missing Heidegger, Ellul, Camatte, Mumford, Illich, Næss, Watson, Perlman, Zerzan, Sale… any real seminal thinker you could care to name. To me this signals that the article is not primarily about ideas, but about this weird modern phænomenon that the mainstream doesn't fully understand. Still interesting though.

This is just a really clever hit piece. It's just glorifying or highlighting the worst elements and I feel it will embolden the right-wing ecoextremists.

I have no respect for anyone mentioned in the article, except for Ted. Hard to believe it's #1 most read. “Wait, I just thought of an exception: John Jacobi. But he’s a screwball — bad judgment — unreliable — a problem rather than a help.” - Ted K., lmao.

Great point on there being no thinkers of value mentioned in the article, although they name drop a "Against Civilization" website — is that us? Haha.

There's quite a few frightening revelations here. The FBI wouldn't comment. That means they're actively investigating. Pretty scary Ted K. is cohorts with DGR.

John Jacobi sexually assaulted a friend of mine.  They are scum.

[Edited by alexander] Good to know. Got any dirt on Aragorn! and sexual abuse you'd like to share?

You signed up just to post that accusation?

Not sure, about BnR, I know folks here have been occasional listeners. Probably a longtime lurker situation, but I've corroborated the claim from at least one other confirmed source.

I have met Aragorn! once. He was pretty friendly and chill tbh. I haven't heard anything about him involving abuse, no.

I didn't sign up just to post about Jacobi, but figured while I was here and he was the subject, I'd get it out there.

You registered the same day as your post.

I just think we have to be very careful with accusations like these.


RE: Anti-civ goes pop - BeerNRage - Sat, 15 Dec 2018 23:32:26 +0000

Yes, I happened to register the same day, and this was one of my first posts. For someone asking me to be careful with accusations, you sure are accusatory :)

As for being careful, I'm being about as careful as I can be. A friend that I have known for some time directly told me that they were assaulted. This isn't a case of third party information, it's directly from the person who was assaulted.

Fine. I'm not accusing you of anything, especially not sexual assault, which is what I meant by "accusations like these".

When someone comes out of the woodwork to post a serious accusation on the same day they register, it just raises a flag, that's all. I'm sure you can understand how it might look to others.
