sure, but that doesn't change the fact that a lot of anprims will draw influence from him

I wish they'd draw more influence from him instead of building it increasingly into a totalitarian collectivist ideology far removed from individualist anarchism.

This thread is about the differences between postciv and prim, so the postciv critique of prim is its driving force because that's why postciv exists and why there's a differentiation between the 2. Even though most anprims I know refute that postciv is even needed and would argue there's no difference.

i don't know how many anprims you've spoken to but all bar one i've met have sung his praises

maybe some reddit anprims approach the ideology on the basis of memes or perhaps a half-understood reading of zerzan but let's not act like reddit should be exhaustively representative of any radical tendency lol

Singing his praises isn't the same as their real life praxis - which is increasingly caught up in idealistic moralism like talking down to me for having (used) solar panels and not being as pure as them.

The thing I find really offputting is how many anprims talk about 'making' a 'primitivist society' the way ancoms talk about making a communist society which shows how far removed from anarchy they've become.
