Actually, Pol Pot wasn't a communist. Pol Pot is to anarcho-primitivism as Stalin is to anarcho-communism. Like anprims, his goal was to abolish civilization, he had no problems with creating millions of deaths in the process, and he absolutely hated disabled people, as well as intellectuals. Like the anprims, he called his ideology communist when it was just another death cult. The only difference between the anprims and him is, Pol Pot wanted to use the state in order to remake society in his own image. The anprims don't want to use a state to achieve that goal.

And everyone should know he was backed by the CIA, so why would the CIA help to spread communism?

Something to be entirely rejected as the anti-thesis of those ideas?

Anprim isn't prescriptive though?

And what anprims call themselves communists!?!?!?!?

Anarcho primitivists pretend to be anarchists (communists), it's right in the name.

ah, Kropotkin, inventor of anarchism. nobody was anarchist before he declared property is theft and communism is anarchy. all other so-called anarchists are pretenders

Do you mean Proudhon? I suppose Mutualism was a primitive form of anarchism, but it didn't really take off until later.

I'm making fun of the idea that all anarchists are communists. Mutualism wasn't a "primitive form of anarchism", it's anarchism. Just as all the other non-communist anarchisms are. It's such a weird idea to assume that only communists can be anarchists when there's been... so many non-communist anarchists that clearly do exist.

And given those exist, the title "anarcho-primitivist" doesn't at all imply communist ideas.

Perhaps you should try not making fun of everyone who isn't as well versed in anarchist dogma as you.

I haven't met a single an-prim that called themselves a communist.

Helping yourself by helping your enemy so you can vanquish your enemy and then help them all over again.

An 'agrarian utopia' isn't anarcho-primitivism, it's perhaps the exact opposite. Agriculture, so far as I'm aware, is something opposed by the major anarcho-primitivist writers.
