Unfortunately PRIMAL is a fictional organisation. Sorry, I know a lot of you are very disappointed to hear this. I for one would sign up at the drop of a hat if such a team existed. I mean what would be more rewarding than dealing out a bit of justice to all the evil bastards in the world that are getting away with evil deeds. Murderers, criminals, despots, rapists, exploiters, corrupt politicians. The list of targets is endless, plenty more PRIMAL stories to come, it seems that the world is full of evil. In my personal opinion the world really does need PRIMAL and the values it stands for.
But whilst we lament the absence of PRIMAL it is important to know that there are vigilante type organisations out in the world fighting with PRIMAL-esque purpose and altruist motives. No they are not equipped with state of the art technology, ruthless operatives and more guns than Texas. But yes they are trying to make a difference for those that can’t fight for themselves. Here are a couple of my favourites:
Sea Shepherd. Here are a team of motivated individuals trying to stop the ruthless pillaging of the ocean by greedy corporations and governments. Yes, the guy at the helm of the organisation is a bit of a self-indulgent dick, but he does have good motives at heart and his people do great work. My sources tell me that they even have a number of former SF guys working for them that have planned and executed military style attacks against whaling ships. Yeah they might be a bit hippy and a little bit haphazard but they do embody the PRIMAL ethos.
The Grey Man. Whilst not technically a vigilante organisation, as The Grey Man operates within the law, this group has a vigilante mentality, assisting where local authorities are not resourced or motivated to do enough. Their name describes how they operate. In the military, ‘grey men’ are those soldiers and officers who keep their head below the radar. Usually this is in training institutions were they remain out of the view of instructors. In the case of this organisation, being grey is all about conducting covert recon. Grey Man operatives penetrate prostitution rings in Asia to find children being exploited for sex. They pose as pedophiles and put their lives in danger to remove children from a terrible environment. The Grey Man was started by a former military operative, no doubt a man who would love to be able to bring the fictional resources of PRIMAL to bear against the scum that traffic in the lives of children. These guys are organised, motivated and highly professional, however they are under-resourced and need funding.
These are just two organisations that are out there doing some good in the world. They’re not just bringing issues to the attention of the world, they’re taking action! That’s really what PRIMAL is all about. Bringing justice to the world through action – all be it military style action. And whilst PRIMAL is fictional, these guys aren’t and as PRIMAL gains traction as a brand and becomes financially viable it is my intent to support those willing to take action. So get across to Amazon and check out my first book PRIMAL Origin.
