Follow Your Heart and Nothing Else: Thoughts on the Religious Anarcho-Primitivist Message of Lynyrd Skynyrd

Fiscella, Anthony LU (2014) In RIT: Religionsvetenskaplig Internettidskrift p.1-7
Abstract
This article maintains that the well-known Souther Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd has a long-neglected religious anarcho- primitivist message in their lyrics. By neglecting the state, celebrating simple living, and advocating the individual conscience as the highest moral authority, the band's theological-political stance seems to approximate the anarcho-primitivst teachings of the Dao de Jing.
