and updating theory about violence in relationships; “Less Within, More Between”

by John Moore
Moore was a British anarchist author, teacher and organizer, member of the Anarchist Research Group in London in the 1980s, and one of the main theorists of the pro-Situ anarchism of the 1990s. Heavily influenced by Fredy Perlman, Moore eventually renounced primitivism and turned to theorists of language and subjectivity, such as Julia Kristeva, Nietzsche, and Stirner.
Untold Delights is a pamphlet of reprinted essays by John Moore — who authored
“the Primitivist Primer,” “Anarchy and Ecstasy,” and edited (with Spencer
Sunshine) the posthumously published collection of essays about Nietzsche
and anarchy, I Am Not A Man, I Am Dynamite.
This pamphlet includes some of Moore’s essays that are harder to find in print:
A Sprig of Mistletoe; Toward a Cultural Ecology of Anarchy; On Ecdysis; Eversion Mysteries; Anarchy and Culture; The Appeal of Anarchy; A Primitivist Primer

Relationships have been clear anarchist territory since Emma Goldman and Voltairine DeCleyre explicitly rejected monogamy and marriage.
But while polyamory may be a popular alternative, it is – by definition – not simple, especially when we recognize the ways that it is coherent with exactly what is expected of us (for example, stereotypical male sexual behavior).
This pamphlet has one reprint of a three person conversation from Anarchy: a journal of desire armed printed many years ago, a new conversation in 2008 between a different trio of poly people, and a modified version of one of the better online polyamory FAQs.
