From C4SS - by William Gillis

The great economist and early anti-statist thinker Bastiat famously pointed out the way our attention is often drawn to the most immediate, losing sight of the wider array of consequences and causations. Such myopia is how modern statism flourishes, obscuring the threat of the policeman’s pistol and the swing of his truncheon, so that a proposed tax for instance is sliced away from all context and rendered into a seemingly inert, docile thing.

From Gods and Radicals

Not everyone in the set of organizational networks and social scenes we call “the US activist community” calls themselves revolutionary. However, those that do have a rainbow of radical organizations to join, with more shades of anarchism, socialism, and communism than most people will ever hear of. Given the radical population’s limited size, competition is fierce, both for already-converted leftists and the as-yet-uninitiated.

Not Just Free Speech, but Freedom Itself

Maybe you missed this, but you’re not in a dialogue. Your views are beside the point. Argue all you want—your adversaries are glad to see you waste your breath. Better yet if you protest: they’d rather you carry a sign than do anything. They’ll keep you talking as long as they can, just to tire you out—to buy time.

From CrimethInc.

For many years, I was torn between understanding myself as an artist and as a revolutionary. As I considered the future through the hyperbolic lens of youth, I felt I would eventually have to make a stark decision: either throw myself into the serious business of fighting oppression, or turn my back on my principles and content myself with making things of beauty to be ignored or consumed by the very society I wanted to destroy.

Spit in the face of repression
an evening in solidarity with those accused of bank robberies in
Aachen/Germany

Faced with an apparatus of repression that is developing ever more
suffocating forms within a context of on-going technocratic and
scientific mania, it is easy to fall into a state of inertia.

The following short essay is a response to ‘Stirnerian Hauntology and the Creative Nothing’—a presentation and short discussion by Daniel on the works of early 19th century German thinker Max Stirner at the East Bay Anarchist Book Fair on Dec, 17 2016. The three concerns with the presentation are as follows: §I is a critique of psychological egoism, which is the view that one is already an egoist. §II is a critique of the use of dualist language invoked in the presentation, and its incompatibility with what I’m calling a phenomenological egoism. §III outlines a concern with Daniel’s treatment of empathy as a phenomenon.
