Quora Answer : Is anarcho-primitivism a joke?

Aug 15, 2020

I think it's more like a "thought experiment".

It starts with a set of principles, and then pushes them to their logical conclusion. Partly thinking and discussing and advocating. And I'm sure some people do try to live it, but that kind of "back to a simpler life" attracts many who aren't strictly anarcho-primitivist.

So it's a whole set of experiments.

Why would you do that? Well either because you find the principles in themselves really compelling. Or because you really want a sense of consistency rather than messy inconsistent compromise, and this looks one way to get that.
