Return to Nature: a reaction to precarity that is precarious

The first reaction to precarity from complexity is returning to a natural state (rejecting society). Which is noble and -definitionally- insane.

The attempt is for humans to return to themselves and reinhabit the flesh in a state of nature as they exit the digital, mechanical, cybernetic systems that distort you.

The anxiety producing the rejection is real: We are in a fragmenting machine chewing apart the world’s stability. T

The problem is you enter another level of precarity by excusing yourself from society: you have no sway or power and are entirely reliant on compassion when they decide to displace you.
