Wild Eternal Life

By Ken, with contributions by Ria & Jack A crisp February afternoon 1977, I rambled down gritty concrete steps making my final exit from University of Illinois, Chicago. I’d devoted six lengthy years to my goal of achieving a doctorate in Family Medicine, but the Coroner’s degree in my left hand connoted my consolation prize. […]

Wildness

Do not seek me amongst Sterile walls and surfaces Where everyone is neatly dressed Don’t imagine me with Soft, clean skin Clean fingernails A whiff of laundry detergent In a building with Exit signs Florescent lights Recycled air from a vent Hard echoing floors… Think of me when you see A deer in pause At […]

Brawl, part 2

Wild animals reposition their ranges and realign their associations, generally gradually. But spontaneous shape-shifting communities manifesting on their own terms are in steep decline. Civilization’s razed land, pollution, noise and overpopulated unwild human presence give some animals an artificial edge to overtake others, deteriorating wild homeostasis.

The Origins and Nature of Hunting: Ecopatriarchy – a review

  Ria writes within a tradition of anarchist thought that I am often considered tied to – anarcho-primitivism.
