Profiles of Legendary Anarchists is a recurring feature of P-CRAC's News and Information Blog

John Zerzan
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

John Zerzan (born 1943) is an American anarchist and primitivist philosopher and author. His works critique (agricultural) civilization as inherently oppressive, and advocate drawing upon the ways of life of prehistoric humans as an inspiration for what a free society should look like. Some of his criticism has extended as far as challenging domestication, language, symbolic thought (such as mathematics and art) and the concept of time. His four major books are Elements of Refusal (1988), Future Primitive (1994), Against Civilization: A Reader (1998) and Running on Emptiness (2002).

"Zerzan has also on occasion quoted others to claim that “the Bushmen… can see four moons of Jupiter with the unaided eye” or that there is “telepathic communication among the !Kung in Africa”. Some feel that such claims serve to undermine Zerzan's general credibility."

can't imagine how the dude made the legend list

If people haven't noticed the tongue n cheek nature of P-CRAC, then you're seriously slow-witted. No offense intended of course, but c'mon... "pee crack?" hahaha.
