Primitivism's Greatest Hits: Item #1:
(or, "if you can't detach the leech from your body at least make a joke about it)
One of my favourite "stupid primmie tricks" comes from a gathering of Earth First held some years back in one of the northern Plains States. The advertising for the event included an item about "do it yourself vasectomies" presumably to kiss Mother Earth's ass and act directly to reduce the number of evil human parasites on her glorious and holy body.
This is the sort of thing that you should never read while drunk because you keep coming back to it over and over thinking you've hallucinated what you just read. But yeah, it was true. The first thought that comes to mind is, "What a wonderful idea" because I can think of only a few categories of people more deserving of a 'Darwin Award' for removing themselves from the gene pool. Maybe the primmies can become one of those problems that automatically corrects itself. No need for any external intervention here. Something like turkeys who are bred for such big pectorals that they can't copulate anymore. Without AI they are screwed, but their very anatomy says they aren't screwed.
Well the fantasy of these half baked idiots "playing doctor" under the blazing sun of a prairie summer day is appealing-if sick. All that I can add is a little technical detail about how they could make their experience more "natural", "wild", "unalienated" and "in solidarity with both Mother Earth and her remaining tribal children. Forget those evil industrial alienating tools of sharpened scalpels that rob you of your connection to the universe. Two big rocks smashed together will do the job just fine.
This would indeed be primitivism's #1 hit.
Or as Mollymew would say, "There's more than one way to un-nut a nut".
