What I Love and Hate About Daniel Vitalis, Rewilding, and Civilization

Just because I've distanced myself from some of the rhetoric of rewilding, doesn't mean I don't think it has a ton of good to offer. Wild food plants and animals DO have better nutritional value than more domesticated food crops. We DO live in a horrifically toxic world. People ARE incredibly traumatized. The coyote howls and the screech owl calls eerily-beautifully outside my open bedroom window as I type this and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Daniel Vitalis, who got his internet health celebrity start in the raw foods world, is the first person to attempt to capitalize on rewilding by targeting the paleo lifestyle crowd. I personally don't have any problem with that. I think its smart. I think it will help the same information reach more people. I think it is only a step beyond what I was attempting when myself and some of my compatriots were “hipsterifying” rewilding in the mid-late 00's and drawing ire from the “real” green anarchists whom we felt were douche-bags for their inability to understand the clear value of infiltrating popular culture.
