What do you think of the LSR project? It's got Stirner and Reich so I assume it would be of interest to us, but it's mostly in German and I don't speak that language so I can't tell what it really is about.


looks like it's just a website hosting a bunch of texts by these three people

also otto gross > wilhelm reich


It's mostly this Laska's essays, but only a few are available in English:
http://www.lsr-projekt.de/poly/ennietzsche.html - Did Nietzsche know of Stirner?
http://www.lsr-projekt.de/poly/eninnuce.html - Why is everyone afraid of the big bad egoist?
http://www.lsr-projekt.de/poly/enmarsden.html - Was Dora Marsden an egoist?

The German has more essays, some that seem interesting, like Stirner as a teacher, Stirner and ancaps, there's even one about Otto Gross.


Read some of their stuff on la Mettrie, and apparently it's a project with the goal of constituting a second enlightenment, or 'Enlightenment 2'.
Their premise is that although the enlightenment started as an european philosophical project in the 18th century and was developed through the 19th and the the first half of the 20th century, it was never completed due to not reaching it's goal (freeing the human from his self-sustained immaturity). But unlike the Frankfurt School, who thought the reason for this was the make-up of enlightenment theory itself, leading to it's own undoing (the relations created by the enlightenment were the grounds upon which it became impossible), LSR argues that enlightenment can be understood as going through different phases of development, with each phase seeing popular but wrong theorists overcoming one unpopular, but ultimately actually right theorist (18th century: Mettrie against Rouseau, 19th century: Stirner vs Marx, 20th century: Reich vs Freud).
According to LSR, studying Mettrie, Stirner and Reich and the controversies between them and their popular enemies will yield th philosophical grounds for a second enlightenment that actually fulfills it's mission.
How does that make any sense? I don't know yet but I'll keep reading some of that stuff since I got nothing better to do.


Keep us posted fam


Sure. I've read 5 of their articles on La Mettrie so far. They all were very similar in that all of the described the biography of Mettrie, talking about how he published 'the human machine', the book his is today most known for, very early in his philosophical career. The human machine is a very radical early materialist text, arguing that everything originates out of matter, including the psyché. Afterwards he had to flee several times from different countries, until he was invited to the philosophers court of Frederic II. LSR now argues that the works he has written here are his actually interesting material, because works like 'The art of lust' are different from other enlightenment philosophers of his time in that they were nihilistic instead of mormative.
I haven't read those books yet (they are currently already borrowed out at my local library) but from what the LSR author describes La Mettrie saw the main factor that was keeping people from truely enjoying themselves (specifically their lust) was their own conscience, which was forced into them by their sorroundings through the transmission of social norms. However La Mettrie apparently also differentiated between a healthy, satisfying desire and a desire that's also influenced by the conscience, only that the lust derived from this desire is not satisfying, because it only exists as the destruction of the conscience and is therefore still tied to it. From this point on La Mettrie was basically hated by the philosophers of his time, because they felt the whole moral nihilism thing was bad optics for the enlightenment, so he got cancelled.
I guess the parallels to Stirner are quite obvious, and I'm really interested to read the actual works by La Mettrie himself, so it might take my time to read the next texts of the website.
I also read 2 stirner articles,the one about nietzsche knowing stirner and 'Die Negation des irrationalen Über-Ichs bei Stirner', or 'Stirner's negation of the irrational super-ego', which tried to interpret Stirner as an 'anarchist' 'pedagogue'. The idea here is that Stirners concept of 'Der Eigner' or 'the owner/unique' could be used as the groundwork for an education that doesn't have the implementation of certain values and norms into a child as it's goal, but the support of the child in developing itself into a unique one. If there is interest, I can go deeper hPost too long. Click here to view the full text.




God is dead and no one cares.


I am no one, and therefore I care.

But if I am God, and God is ded, then by a simple logical syllogism that must mean that I am ded.

hi /death, as a ancom i have just been getting into post left theory, and i would like to ask for reasons why i should be a post leftist rather then a regular one. so i would like problems with the left being addressed here and alternative positions being given to reconsider my own

>just read x book on the topic

i am busy with that right now and i have a whole reading list, i would also just like discourse in the meantime

>Why do you care if they are egoists or not?
because i like to hear non moralfag justifications for the way things are


alternative: happiness is a choice an can be found anywhere, if youre willing to be a meditation slut


I don't get it. But if you have read Stirner, he wrote about how most people tend to approximate the egoist but feel guilty about it afterwards, he called them "involuntary egoists".


nice cope


they are egoists in the same wane as everyboy is an egoist, but they are usually still spooked.
owning capital comes with its own norms you have to adhere to to be talking seriously by others capitalists or that are simply the result of how accumulation works. Just because they are benefiting from class domination doesnt mean they are not integrated in the class structure and thus tend to live not as unique egos, but as capitalists and liberals.

How should we relate to history? Is there any point to studying it? If yes, how should we go about it?

>communism doesn't work because human nature
were they right all along?!


whomstve are you quoting?
modern anthropology proves that neither class struggle nor economic determinism is the reality of primitive society


it's kind of a meme. so how can communism work in such a scenario where people act for their own interests?


I'm afraid that the established narrative runs too deep in the general public (i mean the one about the emergence of the state) and mentioning the scott and graeber theories gets you the weird stares


what was graeber's theory again? i don't remember him addressing this issue in the debt book

anarchism is greek for I do whatever the fuck I want


No state, no government, no laws, little to no hierarchy, self government.


anarchy is an socio-economic condition in which I am able to develop myself as a full person without threat of punishment througn hierarchical structure.

&ltlefties hates art
&lthere's more rune coon shit over another vhs filter
&ltmuh culture has been saved

How does one reach this level of shamelessness? Do they have zero self awareness at this point? What exactly is the deal with post-modernism and people who cry about it? Everyone seems to hate it but I can't help but laugh at the irony that everything these same people derive from falls under that e very window itself. From the looks of it, art itself (especially avant-garde) has always been a very leftist concept, something that challenges the status quo. Pretty much everything that Right wingers appropriate has always been historically driven forward by progressive groups of the society relative to that era.

what do we think of post modernism from a /dead/ perspective?


chuds hate post-modernism cause they dont understand it and it's used in right-wing circles as a buzzword for 'bad thoughts. They think the whole deal with post-modernism is just rejecting modernist notions (like nation or economic structure) because 'it's ebil', but obviously thats a terrible interpretation.
I also don't like post-modernists, but I don't accuse them of trying to destroy the world because of that.


pretty sure most /pol/aks lack the awareness that nation-states and capitalism are modernist notions

Is voting really as big of an inconsequential meme as many people on the far left make it out to be? Wouldn't it be better to vote for someone who is better for my self interests as compared to doing nothing at all? If it doesn't matter then why do people chimp out over who wins or loses anyways?

tdlr on this guy?


he wrote poetry


What did this dog do besides write a shitty manifesto?


He wrote some edgy shit about totally sacrificing and submitting yourself to the "Revolution" that later influenced Lenin, the Bolsheviks and every other imbecile who claims to be the experts of discontent. He was basically the exact opposite of what /dead/ claims to be.


>submitting yourself to the "Revolution"
yeah that's pretty cringe. obviously, the emancipation of the working class is achieved by the workers totally submitting themselves to an idea.

Not the best place to ask but who cares
Does anyone have the onion link for the anarchist bookstore? I tried to access it but the link didn't work. Did they take it down? I think it is unlikely but asking just in case
