Anprim twitter drama 

If you feel more threatened by the spectre of anarchoprimitivism than the threat of ecological collapse and indigenous genocide I can't take you seriously. If you see anti civ activists and you jump to assume we're "eugenicists" who aren't as far as you know personally working on synthesizing insulin, estrogen, et cetera ourselves for our community I just cannot take you seriously.

@kittenlikeasmallcat But biotech and biomedical technology are nearly as far from "primitive" as it gets. They require specialisation, complex manufacturing, systems of accountability to guarantee safety and efficacy. If you take anprim and add technology and necessary specialisation, don't you just get... anarchism?

@seachaint Yes! Synthesis is neat. I see no reason that much more effective structures around medicine require the trappings of what postciv/anticiv criticizes. That's why I tend to argue that anarchoprimitivism as it's most often cited is a dead ideology and scapegoat. Any system of thought that sacrifices vulnerable people isn't worth shit, similarly with any system that advocates the consentless exploitative hierarchy that characterizes primarily colonialist civilization.

@kittenlikeasmallcat Its distressing how dogmatic and morally charged conversations about anticiv anything can get. Ppl I respect have reacted w disgust from bringing up even basic ecological reconsiderations bc 'anticiv means no food and kill disabled and trans' like tf? Have we collectively forgotten the art of being flexible w critiques? Do ppl really think they don't need to question why they think this is the only way??

@outsideoutsider people have been conditioned to look at anything that reminds them of anarchoprimitivism as just those critiques so it shoots to the same level of outrage quickly. Its easy to project ecofascism onto it if they dont actually look into the writing and work.
