Honor The Wild

 

Few people in the world live truly free lives.

There are pockets of hunter-gatherers scattered about the planet in ever decreasing numbers but the majority of the exploding mass of humanity are caged by the insane monster of industrial civilization. Shackled by psychological manipulation to live lives divorced from their animal bodies and instincts they are bound by societal demands to live in total domestication. It’s a culture bound by 10000 years of indoctrination that cannot be reformed. By its very nature it can’t. The infrastructure that sustains it also informs it, a cultural disease in both psychological and tangible manifestations. The notion of human superiority is too ingrained in the collective psyche to be challenged. We are led to believe that humanity is the pinnacle of species evolution, the crown of all life that has ever existed. We believe the universe is here for humanities exclusive use and we have gone about our lives exactly as if that is the truth. A universe to be conquered, pillaged, raped and poisoned.

To the few souls who see through these societal enforced lies a most confronting horror exists. It’s seeing the Emperor has no clothes, it’s coming to terms with the reality that the majority of humanity is living in a bubble of beeping machines and glowing gadgets as the biosphere is being turned into a hazy mess of human squander and arrogance. The blanket of civilization has smothered humanity so thickly that one can see it almost everywhere one steps. It’s on the vacant zombie faces of aimless shoppers spending their precious lives surrounded by neon lit signs designed to catch them as a Venus flytrap would catch a fly.

It’s in the words of the vacuous incantations of the politicians begging to the equally exasperating public who themselves are enveloped in a cocooned comatose stupor to vote for them. It’s on the faces and billboards of slimy advertising agencies and their spokes people begging the public to buy the latest round of tedious trinkets to quell the vivacious delusions of a brainwashed public. It’s there every time a television is turned on. A feast of celebrity narcissists performing like Gods and Goddesses to the self loathing and stupefied masses only too eager to lap it up and post it on social media along with last nights dinner so they feel wanted in a society cold and indifferent to them and their lives.

Even in the age of information, available at the click of a switch which warns them of impending misery, hardship and collapse humanity is drunk on the glory of the industrial holocaust even though all the evidence is around them to the contrary and available on the very screens of their phones telling them that all is not well.

Technology has always divorced humanity from the reality of their existence and as we dive headlong ever more quickly into it we become convinced that the only solution to any ails or ills confronting us is more technology which only exacerbates the situation by divorcing us further from reality and the continuing destruction of the universe. I say the universe because if this insane culture ever manages to colonize another planet for any length of time it will plunder it for all the reasons I’ve mentioned above.

The arrogance of this culture cannot be reformed due to the very nature of it being one of conquest and narcissism at its very core. Civilization is a deformed societal situation based on coercion, dominance and greed. It cooperates with no other species and acts as an alien upon the earth and from the perspectives of free humans and all other life that is unfortunate enough to live along side it, it is indeed alien.

  1. My favorite parts: “The blanket of civilization has smothered humanity so thickly that one can see it almost everywhere one steps.

    Well said. After reading this and the last article you linked me via Facebook I definitely see a similar trend in our writing styles, if I don’t say so myself. I don’t think people see the cheerful, jovial connectedness and freedom that comes with hunter-gather bands. I still want to read more influential anarchist and anprim literature. I’m seeking to live this lifestyle and teach others about it. The specifics and the details of this plan are largely vacant. You can say theres a spontaneous element to it for sure. Community is an important staple to this endeavor as is civilization an obstacle. Where do you plan on going with your message? Where are you from, and how do you advocate it / practice it?

    1. I admire your commitment to following the path of freedom. It’s a rare heart that can be bothered or even understand there is life outside the cage.
      Yes community is important.
      I have a good community in my neighbors & even though they are often redneck & not understanding what we are talking about here they will look out for you & if you look out for them they stand by you. One thing I’ve learnt is in these days of broken people living in a broken society in a dying biosphere is there’s a lot of grey not so much black & white.

      I live in Australia & I really only write I guess in frustration even if no one reads what I write.
      Australia’s indigenous people lived here as hunter – gatherer’s for at least 40000 years & this dominant invasive culture of civilization has decimated both it & the land base in a little over 200 years.
      Anyway thanks for your comments. It’s very hard to find like minded hearts in a world devoid of reality & usually they are spread far & wide across the planet due to be such a minority voice, a small boat being thrown about in heaving dark seas of apathy & destruction.
      Read & learn all you can & set yourself free, you won’t regret it.

  2. Excellent article – very well expressed. I have found some refuge in studying ancient spiritual energy systems which in a way can give pointers to what is happening on a material level. Personally, I think that, although it may seem like a form of escapism, such an approach could actually assist us in being pragmatic about the future, which, I feel beats being depressed about it all the time (which is exhausting and incapacitates one from seeing or thinking about solutions or a way forward.)

    I agree with you that community is very important. I’m in a small country in South America and here the community spirit is still strong enough for people to fall back on it, should it be necessary, but it’s changing fast here too… I think that, perhaps, in a couple of decades time we may see some reversal in the urbanization trend, although it won’t be possible everywhere as there aren’t enough land available in many places. Nevertheless, when the time comes, I believe that solutions will come too. Those who have the right skills to offer at that time will be ok.

    1. Thank you for your comments. I think you raised a very important aspect and that is spirituality. My own spirituality I would class as pantheism although some would call it borderline panentheism. For me the universe is imbued with the scared, the divine. For me living a simple lifestyle close to the land is living a divine filled life & I find it an inspiring way to live.
