Re: civilization, its definition, purpose, and adequacy

Dear GoodRudeFun, I'll try and help to answer some of these criticisms in the meantime. But I must warn you; I personally am an anarcho-primitivist in every sense of the word, and when it comes to civilization, I do in fact think that it deserves nothing less than a brutal murder. To everyone else: ...

Re: Ishmael by Daniel Quinn

Hi vers, thanks for the response. I feel that the point of Ishmael, boiled down, was to argue that we have no right to treat the planet as ours to do with what we may. Let me change your perceived point of the book: "We have no right to treat the planet as ours to do with what we may, specifica...

Re: Society, its definition, purpose, and adequacy

I haven't really come upon any ideas for a better "social set up" other than we would have been better off if we had just stayed in tribes as "cavemen". Actually, there's an entire movement behind this idea. Try looking up Daniel Quinn, Derrick Jensen, John Zerzan, Charles Eisen...

It already exists: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudbury_school Too bad it's so damn hard to get into - I'd love to go there. I second this. While I know that this thread was about personal ideal systems, this system does more to cater to everyone than any other system. Only homeschooling (without g...
