Well, what I've read of primitivism they tend to defend their skeptic view of anti-biotics (because it's a civ thing) with the notion that civilization somehow caused the sicknesses they cure. While some people get sick because they eat to much and exercise to little it's complete bullshit to state that civilization created TB for instance. Civilization don't create germs (not yet at least). They have a romantic view that people in hunter-gatherer groups never get sick which is also bullshit. They just don't get exposed to as much people and germs as folks in civilization. The only way to reach a primitivist society is to kill off 99% of the world's population or somehow restrict breeding voluntarily which is unlikely to work ever.

I fail to see how anything you write isn't deductible from what I wrote. If anything, you show primitivism to be the misanthropic ideology it is.

I wrote that civilization did not create TB, I didn't write that germs/viruses don't spread faster and mutate in larger populations.

Being against the only option we have right now for the human population of the world, unless they all commit mass-suicide, is in my view a misanthropic standpoint.
