(1826 - 1898) ~ Matilda Joslyn Gage
Matilda Joslyn Gage was an American writer and activist. She is mainly known for her contributions to women's suffrage in the United States (i.e. the right to vote) but she also campaigned for Native American rights, abolitionism (the end of slavery), and freethought (the free exercise of reason in matters of religious belief). She is the eponym for the Matilda effect, which describes the tendency to deny women credit for scientific invention. She influenced her son-in-law L. Frank Baum, the author of The Wizard of Oz. She was the youngest speaker at the 1852 National Women's Rights Convention held in Syracuse, New York. She was a tireless worker and public speaker, and contributed numerous articles to the press, being regarded as "one of the most logical, fearless and scientific writers of her day". During 1878–1881, she published and edited the National Citizen, a paper devoted to the cause of women. With Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, she was for yea...

(1815 - 1902) ~ Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Elizabeth Cady Stanton (November 12, 1815 – October 26, 1902) was an American writer and activist who was a leader of the women's rights movement in the U.S. during the mid- to late-19th century. She was the main force behind the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, the first convention to be called for the sole purpose of discussing women's rights, and was the primary author of its Declaration of Sentiments. Her demand for women's right to vote generated a controversy at the convention but quickly became a central tenet of the women's movement. She was also active in other social reform activities, especially abolitionism. In 1851, she met Susan B. Anthony and formed a decades-long partnership that was crucial to the development of the women's rights movement. During the American Civil War, they established the Women's Loyal National League to campaign for the abolition of slavery, and they led it in the largest petition drive in U.S. history up to that time. They... (From : Wikipedia.org / WomensHistory.org.)

(1942 - ) ~ Rik Lina
RIK LINA (The Netherlands 1942) lived and worked on different continents, preferably in wild nature, as a way of life using Odilon Redon’s advise: “Immerse yourself into nature!”. For this he dedicated life and art to study the deserts, the mountains, tropical rainforest- and coral reef jungles. In 1975, the emigration to the Caribbean island of Bonaire became an essential experience for his work with more than a thousand hours of scuba-diving. A major part of his drawing, painting and graphic work represents poetry and life of the pelagic realms, next to his explorations of the jungles of cloud forests and inner space. After studies at the Rietveld Academy of Amsterdam (1961-1966) he made countless individual and collective international exhibitions. In 1968 he made contact with the surrealists by the BRUMES BLONDS magazine of Laurens Vancrevel and joined the MOUVEMENT PHASES” of Edouard Jaguer since the 1972 exhibition in Peru: “Homage to C&...

• "Government still deals with criminals by the old-fashioned process of punishment, but both science and philanthropy concur in pronouncing that the grand remedial agency for crime is prevention, and not cure." (From : "The True Constitution Of Government In The Sovere....)
• "The whole of that legislation which establishes or tolerates that form of human bondage which is called slavery is at this moment undergoing the most determined and vigorous onset of public opinion which any false and tyrannical institution of Government was ever called upon to endure. The full and final abolition of slavery can not but be regarded, by every reflecting mind, as prospectively certain." (From : "The True Constitution Of Government In The Sovere....)
• "Under the old order of things, government interfered to determine the trade or occupation of the Individual, to settle his religious faith, to regulate his locomotion, to prescribe his hours of relaxation and retiremeut, the length of his beard, the cut of his apparel, his relative rank, the mode of his social intercourse, and so on continuously, until government was in fact every thing, and the Individual nothing."

Primal, Rewilding Anarchist Advocate
I am a primal anarchist advocate, writer, editor, independent researcher, publisher, musician, and rewilding human. And I'm not a fan of talking about myself. The ideas that we contribute to as anarchists, as primitivists, as rewilding animals, the life that we contribute through trying to undo domestication, to resist the grasp of programmers, priests, politicians and developers, are all fundamentally more important than any individual. My hope is and always has been to connect the dots, to focus on and try to understand how domestication and power originate and perpetuate so that we can undo them. Or, at the very least, resist them with our lives. This site is intended to post up writings and update projects that I have been working on over my last 2+ decades as an anarchist. As someone who hates technology, don't expect much from it, but hopefully there's something within all of this that resonates. Good or bad, feel free to write through the Contact pag...

Sam Dolgoff - The Left of the Left of the Left By Paul Berman - Village Voice, November 13, 1990 Sam Dolgoff, my old friend who died last week, spoke from sidewalk soapboxes and in union meeting halls for more than 60 years, and during all that time, what caught everyone's attention was his tough cocky style, half New York, half Joe Hill. Flames of mockery and indignation danced above his head. The man identified with the downtrodden workers, and he sho...
