Is it possible to prevent auto-fill-mode from automatically indenting new lines according to the previous? I would like new lines to begin at column 0 regardless of the previous line's indentation.

Presumably, you want to use paragraph-indent-text-mode or paragraph-indent-minor-mode which are resp. major and minor modes to use when editing text where paragraphs are separated by having the first line be indented and the rest of the paragraph start in column 0.
