THIS SO MUCH THIS
This is basically the killer argument against primitivism - their ideology is really incompatible with having autonomous and mobile disabled people.
(caveat: my idea of revolution doesn’t require “everyone” to be invited, but “disabled people” is obv not an exclusion I want!)
wow this is a super fucking important point and not something that gets talked about nearly enough
yooo and this applies to people who have serioud conditions that require medications like asthma or diabetes.
Also it excludes a number of trans people that desire physical changes to their body.
and the theoretical basis that drives this thought ignores class and other factors of ownership, wherein the problem isn’t the technology itself, but who controls the technology.
and given that this point of view tends to come from (but not exclusively etc) lower-middle to middle class cis and able bodied anarchists, who are already in a slightly higher position of control over this technology than differently abled people and trans people; I get the feeling that they unintentionally prioritize the destruction of technology just so that they don’t have to lose control of it themselves.
