Reading Group #26 – Technology, Primitivism, and Automation

Short url:

The London Anarchist Federation's monthly reading group will have its twenty-sixth session on the 28th of June at 19:00 at Decentre, just above Freedom Bookshop (84B Whitechapel High St, London, E1 7QX). The bookshop will likely be closed by that time so we will be using the back door to the freedom building, further into the alleyway than the bookshop entrance.

Following our discussion on logistics, we will be discussing two articles that criticizes two radically opposite takes on technology, anarcho-primitivism and fully automated luxury communism. We hope it will spark a constructive, respectful and interesting debate on this issue.

Fully Automated Luxury Communism: A Utopian Critique
Civilisation, Primitivism, and Anarchism

This goes without saying, but we do not endorse all the actions and publications of their respective authors.

Hopefully it will pique your interest. Attending every month is not a requirement - just come along when we're discussing a topic or a text you like!
