A well argued and accessible pamphlet critiquing the dubious connection between anarchism and primitivism. Sheppard does a really nice job deconstructing and analyzing the concepts of primitivism, while critiquing the hypocrisy of the position. He posits a sound argument for classical anarchism rooted in the working class struggle and dresses down the criticisms put on anarchism by primitivists. It does make you wonder why primitivists align themselves with anarchists. This is a really good zine and one that I recommend.
