Zerzan doesn’t sound like some courtroom jester “activist”, that’s for sure.Found this for those unfamiliar with the guy:
John Zerzan isn’t on a list. John Zerzan is the list. He is perhaps the most preeminent philosopher and author out there who is not only against modern technology, but isn’t a fan of the whole civilization thing you are so into either. If this is not enough to freak out the government watchdogs, he is an anarchist. Oh, and then there was his friendship with the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynkski.
But those aren’t the main reasons Zerzan would be on a government watch list. He would be on one mostly because he makes a lot of sense. He answered some questions for me concerning what he believes about how we are all living our lives, and about his new book Why Hope published by the consistently awesome Feral House.
