  1. I’m ecstatic that the folks at Daily Bell and Lew Rockwell recognize the social and political ramifications of Mr Cremo’s work. While most Libertarians and Anarchists will not appreciate his Veda based alternative explanation of our origins and history he does a good job of separating those aspects from his straight archeological research. And it is his archeological work that would be relevant to Libertarians, Anarchists and Secessionists. I think that there are basically two well argued positions within his general thesis that would interest readers of ATS.

    The first being the premise that advanced civilizations, even on a global scale have risen and fallen many times throughout our history. Contrary to the establishment dogma of progress that history has been one long linear struggle from savagery to civility Mr Cremo shows that the archeological record contains evidence that super-states and global civilizations come and go. I think this is important because the concept of progress is the modern day equivalent of the divine right of kings justifying the existing power structure. The establishment would have us believe that were it not for the enlightened elite and their laws and institutions we would all be lumbering around with toothaches hoveling in caves eating human flesh. When the truth may be that civilizations are more like plagues that break out periodically then die out. With us always returning to our tribal ” primitive” mode of living which is not so much a point in time but our natural default state, a state of health between maladies which can last thousands or more years.

    Second and this should be of interest to National Anarchists and Separatists Secessionists, is the fact that there is substantial physical evidence collaborating the historical tradition that different races of man and even entirely different species of homo sapiens lived for centuries right next to each other without mixing or killing each other. This is a total negation of Oneworldism and the progressive mandate of miscegenation. Of course there was conflict but for the most part people managed to live near each other and maintain their cultures and ethnicities while living in peace, sometimes trading and cooperating and sometimes, god forbid, just ignoring each other.

    I would like to hear from anyone else who is familiar with Mr Cremo’s work and may have thoughts regarding the revolutionary relevance of his theories.
