Book Description

17 Jun 2012
Future Primitive Revisited marks the return of John Zerzan's iconic and long out-of-print classic. In this updated collection of essays, Zerzan explores the understanding of how we got here and the actual depth of the human plight to struggle for a qualitatively better reality. Originally published in 1994, this edition includes all-new material from the well regarded philosopher.

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.

3.0 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.
