An Essay by Einstein "How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people -- first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy. A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving... "I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -- this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.

Illich: Tools for Conviviality Tools for Conviviality Ivan Illich Contents Acknowledgments xix Introduction xxi I Two Watersheds 1 A Stanford University Debate: Transhumanism vs. Anarcho-Primitivism  Zoltan vs. Zerzan Debate -- Photo by Kourosh Afrashteh of Project Prometheus Last Saturday night at Stanford University, I had the honor of publicly debating the world's leading anarcho-primitivist philosopher John Zerzan.

The process of living thus inevitably incurred 'regret' that required 'consolation' to move nearer to God or to approach heaven. It occurred only twice in a lifetime: upon confirmation in the faith and upon impending death. It was available to both men and women who made a commitment to the faith.[citation needed] Following the ceremony the consoled individual became a "Cathar Perfect"

Dr. Don Felix Sarda Y Salvany Liberalism is the root of heresy, the tree of evil in whose branches all the harpies of infidelity find ample shelter; it is today the evil of all evils. (Ch. 4). "The theater, literature, public and private morals are all saturated with obscenity and impurity. Anti-civilization thought in Thoreau's "Walking" - Feral Jesus “Give me a wildness whose glance no civilization can endure.” Henry David Thoreau is celebrated as the father of the environmental movement in the United States, but many of his writings on ecology, social life, economics and human relations share much in common with the radical anti-civilization or anarcho-primitivist movement. Though he predates the anarcho-primitivist movement in America by about 140 years, Thoreau’s essay “Walking” uses language and concepts that we might recognize today as anti-civilization thought. Anarcho-primitivism is an anarchist critique of the origins and development of civilization and advocates for a transition to a hunter-gatherer way of life that existed prior to the agricultural and later industrial revolutions, which saw the development of government, social hierarchy, division of labor, bureaucracy and advanced technology.
