Wild resistance and primal anarchy – issue 6 Black and Green Review and changes in words
E version is out and as always interesting essays and discussions- and a challenging start …
To the captives Kevin Tucker Essay –
Kevin discusses the change in words/ semantics from anarcho-primitivism to primal anarchy….
Here are a couple quotes how he approaches it…
“ For nearly the past two decades, I have loudly called myself an anarcho-primitivist. I’ve found both grounding and a place within an¬archo-primitivism. It’s helped define a place to learn and fight from. But, like all things, it’s important to realize limitations as well. Is this new ground, or are we still on enemy turf? “
“It’s felt increasingly apparent that the name is a limitation, attaching itself to two different lineages—anarchism and primitivism—neither of which is necessarily fitting in its own right. Anarcho-primitivism becomes the square peg, tethered to sets of rules that are neither ap¬plicable nor useful.
I’ve increasingly used another phrase: primal anarchy. As both anarchism and primitivism seem to quickly wither and decay on their own, I’m only finding more reasons to embrace that term entirely. “
“ We can once again become grounded in the world that exists, rather than remain stuck with the divided, mapped, and claimed real¬ity that we were born into.
We have the chance to realize that we were never really gone in the first place. “
Not quite sure myself where I stand on this - yet
as always, we learn and what we orient ourselves on changes along our journey. So- does / will this change in semantics give us the room to remove another layer of the narrative we travel along And most important… isn’t feralculture the actualization of exactly this … ??
Definitely worth checking out…and get a few discussions going- anyone ?
