Jason McQuiin and Wolfi Landstreicher, even Bob Black are POST-CIV anarchist, meaning they are against civilization, but do not believe in the reversal of technology, rather, going sideways and imagining what other possibilities exist.
The earth is dying, and civilization is responsible. Civilization created and expanded upon problems we as a species faced such as misogyny and value as a construct.
Primitivism advocates for a reversal of SPECIFIC technologies, and the destruction of civilization through insurrection.
People don't realize that we ALL die. We will die from our diseases no matter what.
If a global anarchist uprising were to happen, whether anarcho-syndicalist or whatever, MANY people will die. We will die from starvation, disease, famine, malnutrition, whatever. It is useless to hide from this reality. Primitivism embraces it and accepts it.
Canes and medicines will still exist in a primitivist world, just in a different form. Herbs and natural medicines, and wood DO help. Not to embrace false medicine like homeopathy and placeboo, but to actually be in tune with nature. These diseases and disabilities are often natural, why not connect them with nature?
