anti civ

Η πυξίδα του χάους είναι αυτή που οδηγεί στις απεριόριστες δυνατότητες της ζωής απελευθερωμένες από εξουσιαστικές σχέσεις. Το χάος και η αναρχία είναι άρρηκτα συνδεδεμένα μέσα στο ταξίδι προς το άγνωστο των πιθανοτήτων, όπου η κάθε στιγμή κυοφορεί τη δική της έκπληξη. Η διαρκής εξέγερση, μια συνεχόμενη πολεμική απέναντι σε κάθε εξουσία, γκρεμίζει τα είδωλα και κάθε τι που επιχειρεί να καταλάβει το θρόνο της αλήθειας.

Σύμπραξη αναρχικών – Memento Mori

Some of the people who left the human communities remembered some of the qualities. They remembered some of the joys of possession — not possession of things but possession of Being.

They remembered — but vaguely, foggily. Surrounded by things, they lost the ability to express the qualities. They knew the age they had left was more valuable, more pure, more beautiful than anything they found since. But their language had gone poor. They could speak of what they lost only by comparing it to things of their world. They called the forgotten age the Age of Gold.

Fredy Perlman, Against His-Story, Against Leviathan

“Κάθε ζωή διαμορφώνεται από μια μοναδική στιγμή, τη στιγμή που ο άνθρωπος συνειδητοποιεί, μια για πάντα, ποιος είναι.”

“Any life, however long and complicated it may be, actually consists of a single moment — the moment when a man knows forever more who he is.”
Jorge Luis Borges 

‘‘Στριφογυρνούσα και ήταν πια ξεκάθαρο… τα πιο όμορφα συναισθήματα, την πιο λεπτή ουσία του να είμαι άνθρωπος, την ανακάλυπτα όσο σταδιακά μεταμορφωνόμουν σε αγρίμι. Ναι, μπορώ να δηλώσω πλέον με σιγουριά πως, αφού δεν μπορούμε να νικηθούμε… θα νικήσουμε’‘. 

  • Me: I'm handing in this cave painting instead of a printed typed essay because language is a key part of civilization, which is oppressive.
  • My primitivist teacher: You get an A+ for the entire class and no longer have to do any more work or even show up. In fact, please don't do any more of my work or show up to my class again or I will fail you since this class is a part of the oppressive system of civilization.

y would anti civ be incompatible with living in the city? i mean, creating sub spaces in the urban centres from which to agitate in the cities is good i think. just going off the grid to build do sustainable things is a nice idea, but rather escapist if you’re just trying to build something sustainable for yourself or your community. what’s the point of living without technology, or with the earth, feeding and housing yourself while the masses are still over consuming, exploiting, still enslaved, while people still don’t have access to food or housing and are still relying on reform structures. we need to be critical in our ideas and analysis but also not be selfish with our ideas. we may have some ideas to live outside the system, but to just change our lifestyle would not effectively disrupt the structures that make the control and hegemony of technology, industry and civilization carry power. don’t get me wrong, i think rural farms are great if we are always strengthening ties and networks with different regions, promoting a culture of mutual aid.  but it is not a solution in itself; the solution is revolution. 

(…) “Η κοινωνία της ψυχολογίας προσφέρει, φυσικά, τεράστια ποικιλία προϊόντων, ρούχα και αυτοκίνητα, βιβλία και θεραπείες, για κάθε τρόπο ζωής, σε μια μάταιη προσπάθεια της να μετριάσει την όρεξη για αυθεντικότητα. Ο Debord είχε δίκιο. Όσο περισσότερο συμβιβαζόμαστε με την τοποθέτηση του εαυτού μας στις κυρίαρχες εικόνες της ανάγκης, τόσο λιγότερο κατανοούμε τη δική μας ύπαρξη και τις δικές μας επιθυμίες”.

I’m feeling very misanthropic recently, I can’t wait to run away and live in the forest with Lu. There is only a few humyns who I like and they all know who they are. I’m tired of having to punch buses, swear at taxi drivers and breath in toxic fumes just to get to work. I want to wake up in the morning, pick my food out of the forest and explore. I am slowly amassing more books to prepare for when I live in the forest. I’m rabbling now, so I think I will go work on my Zine or sew!
