Tired: Escaping from the trappings of civilization to live a mythologized hunter-gatherer lifestyle in a lonely wilderness

Wired: Dropping out of the worst aspects of capitalist civilization by joining a self-sustaining intentional community on cultivated farmland.

Inspired: Rejecting the separation of "civilization" from "wilderness" as an inherently colonialist distinction and actively working to dissolve the border between the two.

@GreenandBlack why do I feel the last one will involve building more suburbs? Treehouses 👍 suburbs 👎

@lafnlab Because you've been taught to recognize the synthesis of wild with civilization as suburbia, whereas the suburbs actually represent the border we're trying to erase in the first place.

Suburbs bad. Cultivating nature within cities good.

@GreenandBlack @lafnlab i've lived in the richest suburb of indiana for most of my life and briefly worked at a landscaping job

let me tell ya, the dull, over-cultivated greenery of suburbia is nothing RESEMBLING "wilderness"

@polymur @lafnlab or "civilization" for that matter :P

truly the worst of both worlds
