Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a very challenging read as it confronts almost every assumption one may have about the societies we live in. It explains exactly why we experience depression, illness, oppression, sexism and the subjugation of women, animal cruelty, warfare, the myths surrounding religion, politics, environmentalism and so on. If you think you know how the world works, read this book. I am willing to bet that most people reading this work will not have seen the world John Zerzan's way, but for anyone who instinctively knows something is radically wrong with life, what he has to say will make perfect (if chillingly uncomfortable) sense. If you want to see the world differently and in high definition clarity, read this author. For me it has been one of the most illuminating and informative texts I have ever read.

HASH(0x8f176984) out of 5 stars Great Introduction to Anarcho-Primitivism 7 May 2015
By Casey Friesenhahn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I agree with Paul Theroux and Derrick Jensen about the uncompromising brilliance of John Zerzan.

This book is the best introduction to Zerzan’s writings and to the Anarcho-Primitivist philosophy. I also highly recommend the Zerzan edited anthology, Against Civilization, also published by Feral House.

Congrats on discovering Zerzan.

HASH(0x8f75f27c) out of 5 stars Primitve ancestors isn't what we are striving to be like. We are striving to be like our descendants 4 Jun. 2015
By Derek E. Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Honestly just started but I need to make something clear. Primitve ancestors isn't what we are striving to be like. We are striving to be like our descendants. Our ancestors didn't give a s*** about love hope, community exploration, etc they cared about staying alive and possessing as much material things as they could in order to do that.

To go primitive would be to move away from the things the other embraces.

HASH(0x8f744e1c) out of 5 stars Inciting the middle-class 26 April 2013
By S. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you collected together all of Zerzan's analyses of modern miseries and degradations you could present them as a new psychological self-help program. This would be a good and useful thing.

Unfortunately, Zerzan exploits these modern problems as a means to exhort middle-class people to be angry and rebellious against the System. The only people naive enough to act out based on these arguments are young middle-class adults who are understandably hesitant about shouldering the heavy burden of compromise they've inherited from their forebears.

Personally, I don't like anyone telling me how to feel, whether it's people telling me to be reverent to the System or angry against it. I've benefited a great deal from Zerzan's writings. They've helped me put my relationship to the System in perspective and to be content with simple non-System joys and fulfillments. And as for my own natural, untutored feelings: I'm not angry with the System, only disgusted.
