FC Journal has brought up a few interesting dialogues on Facebook, enough so that I think it would be good to discuss here.
I've also heard reference from other non-anarchist primitivists that they see the problems we have as a matter of scale rather than necessarily hierarchy. I'm not sure on the nuance of FC Journal's positions, but they are interesting enough to illicit conversation. Here is their "Introduction to Hunter/Gatherer":
FC Journal was created for the express purpose of spreading love for wilderness and all things wild. We intend it to be a place where various people can share their appreciation of wilderness and the experiences, news, knowledge, and ideas that come with that appreciation.
We have also explicitly opened up a place in FC Journal for the public development of Primitivist thought. We strongly encourage people to submit articles contributing to Primitivist ideas, and some in FC Journal staff are also interested in contributing.
But while FC Journal is a place to publish in-depth analysis and working ideas that are already pretty solid, we also realize that there is need for discussion on developing topics or even topics that have previously been unexplored.
“Hunter/Gatherer” is an editorial column for just that. Every month we will publish two or more articles about a specific topic relevant to Primitivist theory. We encourage people to more thoroughly discuss these topics in the comments below, and hope that these discussions will eventually lead to more developed articles being published in the main journal.
If you have a specific topic you would like to write about for Hunter/Gatherer, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
