Tired: Escaping from the trappings of civilization to live a mythologized hunter-gatherer lifestyle in a lonely wilderness
Wired: Dropping out of the worst aspects of capitalist civilization by joining a self-sustaining intentional community on cultivated farmland.
Inspired: Rejecting the separation of "civilization" from "wilderness" as an inherently colonialist distinction and actively working to dissolve the border between the two.
@GreenandBlack apparently it turns out I didn't get it after all
@GreenandBlack ah ok thx. so the Inspired one would be called anti-"civ"? 😂
@unsuspicious I think "Post-civ" is more accurate.
@GreenandBlack hehe that reminds me of the description of a person in "Cryptonomicon" by Neal Stephenson.
"In fact, Kia is trans-just about every system of human categorization, and what she isn't trans- she is post -."
@GreenandBlack thanks for the clarification =)
@unsuspicious Absolutely not. Anti-civ ideology considers civilization itself to be inherently colonialist, hence why it calls for a "collapse".
I'm of the opinion that the mere idea of "civilization" and "wilderness" themselves are inherently colonialist, as it sees the two as separable and not part of one ecology.
A mastodon instance for anarchists and libertarian socialists.
