This week, The Final Straw takes pleasure in re-presenting a conversation with Layla AbdelRahim about her book, "Wild Children - Domesticated Dreams: Narratives of Civilization and Wilderness". She is an anarchaprimitivist who explores ideas of education, domestication and civilization in terms of childhood development and overall human health. In these excerpts from the conversation we define some terms and talk about instrumentalization of living things and symbolic thought and how they are used to shape the child's mind into the civilized and non-empathic perspective. Info on the book can be found at http://www.fernwoodpublishing.ca

This conversation initially happened in June of 2014
