Notes on Humanism and Progressivism

I Humanism is the dominant ideology of world society. “Humanism” here means a morality that sets justice, equality, and peace as its ideals, and that considers the sphere of moral consideration to be the whole human species. “Dominant” here is a measure of power, not popularity. Most of the world population, by numbers, may not […]

A Critique of the Concept of “Leftism”

Note: Here I will not completely explain the concept of “leftism” as Ted Kaczynski uses it. Readers of this essay should instead refer to “Industrial Society and Its Future” (especially paragraphs 6-32, 83, 213-232) and “Izquierdismo” by Último Reducto. These pieces should provide the requisite knowledge for following this critique. Two Meanings of Leftism Theorists […]

Review of Earlier Works and Their Merits

What follows is an annotated bibliography of all major ideological works I have produced since starting the Wild Will Project.

Marcos Loves Modernization

I see from Green Anarchy No.6, page 7, that Jesús Sepúlveda says the Zapatistas are resisting modernization. If that’s true, then they had better get rid of Subcomandante Marcos, ¡muy pronto! The good Subcomandante is no opponent of modernization. Here are some quotes from a speech that he gave during the Zapatistas’ recent march on Mexico City: […]

The Truth About Primitive Life: A Critique of Anarcho-Primitivism

1. As the Industrial Revolution proceeded, modern society created for itself a self-congratulatory myth, the myth of “progress”: From the time of our remote, ape-like ancestors, human history had been an unremitting march toward a better and brighter future, with everyone joyously welcoming each new technological advance: animal husbandry, agriculture, the wheel, the construction of […]

The System’s Neatest Trick

The supreme luxury of the society of technical necessity will be to grant the bonus of useless revolt and of an acquiescent smile.[1] — Jacques Ellul The System has played a trick on today’s would-be revolutionaries and rebels. The trick is so cute that if it had been consciously planned one would have to admire […]
