Dancing & Digging by Seaweed/Shaun Woods – a review

Not so much a review, but a blurb...but hey, slow week.

from Eco Revolt by Julian Langer

Seaweed affirms that “(f)ree wanderers spread anarchy”; that “(a) cluster of free wanderers is anarchy”; that “(n)ature is the marvelous that the surrealist seeks”; and that “(l)aughter is a formidable philosophical position”. Seaweed also reminded me that “(t)he tragedy of civilization is that self-creation is absent”; that “(i)ndividual refusal is the most urgent move”; and that “(d)iversity makes life interesting, technology erases difference” – all resonating intensely with my individualist-eco-anarchist perspective!

When We Are Human, by John Zerzan – a review

WWJZD? i ask myself as i go about my day

From Eco-revolt by Julian Langer

When I found that a copy of Zerzan’s new book, When We Are Human, had reached me I was immediately excited and keen to read. I am continually moved by Zerzan’s thought and writings, despite many points of difference in perspective or approach. It was largely a desire to encounter these differences that motivated me to email John and ask him to send me a copy of the book, to review. As I encountered these points of difference in perspective I was mostly very glad to experience them, because they affirmed my experience of John Zerzan as someone who is not me and someone I can appreciate for being-them and the thought being-theirs – there is one point of the text, which I go into more detail on in a more critical section of this review, that, I will share at this point, did offend me and is in my eyes the worst thing I’ve ever read by Zerzan; but I will state that much of this text is some of the best and most beautiful writings by Zerzan. 

My Anti-Cull Philosophy

a badget in a sett

from Eco-Revolt

By Julian Langer

Anarchy is here. Anarchy is now. I experience anarchy most intensely when among the living, usually while surrounded by badger setts, trees and bird song, but it is not separate from my body. My bodily presence is the ontological actualisation of primal-anarchy – not as anthropological performance, but as the free expression of my will.

Enemies Of The Logic Of Totalitarianism

from Eco Revolt

I generally describe my anarchist-philosophy as ontological and one of my reasons for this is due to my lack of belief in authority, with my basic position being that all-is-(actually-)anarchy – the attempt at assuming authority I encounter as an admission of being-powerless. As I do not encounter authority as any-Thing with any meaningful existence, my rebellion is directed towards non-conformity towards totalitarianism (and I consider Daniel Quinn’s definition of civilisation as totalitarian-agriculture to be, basically, right)

An (incomplete) Affirmation of My Relationship With Primitivist Thought

from Eco-Revolt by Julian Langer

My relationship with the school of thought that is primitivism is very split between intense affirmation and intense differentiation. And that is essentially all I wish to communicate through this piece.

An eco-egoist destruction of species-being and speciesism

From Nightforestpress.com

The central focus of this essay is nothing short of the complete and utter destruction of human-being and the total liberation of all individual animals. This is in no way an embrace of misanthropy, whose inverted humanism perpetuates the ideology of human -supremacy.

Liberation Podcast - Julian Langer

From Liberation Podcast

We have Julian Langer here today to speak on his new book, Feral Life: Meditations on Rewilding and Anarchy. Along with his book we also talk about the idea of anti-collectivism, his personal embodiment of feral living, and the paradox that is society and its allowance of authority over itself instead of finding where their individual power (freedom) comes from.
