Is Individualism Dead?

28 February 2013, 09:04

Seems as though every supposed ‘anarchist’ one meets is either a socialist or, at most (or least…), a libertarian. Instead of rejecting State and Society they manufacture other methods of legitimizing human action.

Why the need for ‘justice’? Why battle for ‘autonomy in the abstract’, in its place only attaining self-determination of your own?

Anarchists were influenced by Rudolf Steiner and Friedrich Nietzsche, think Bonnot, Tak-Kak & Novatore, all of which have my regard. In fact, I’d consider myself an Illegalist Anarchist (the egoist or sympathiser thereof is a criminal by definition) but, and unfortunately, I’m confronted with the ignorant man’s opinion of Anarchism – which leaves me disinterested and unproductively alone.

The ‘Worldwide Chaos’ idiocy of the bewildered herd is nearer to Anarchism of the true individual than the lemonade-stand worship that is Socialism.  

Powers that demand obedience & society in its bland multitude are the enemy – It must be if it excludes my individuality, my ego. The ‘war of all versus all’ is naturally true, and others only cease to be my foe when their might no longer tests my own.

Whether this is by coming to an understanding and a union of purpose through 'peaceful' means or by raising the black flag and slitting throats matters to whom?
