Stirner's Critics on Immediatism Podcast

In these four new episodes of Immediatism are contained the unabridged Stirner's Critics, in which Stirner responds to three prominent critics of his day. He clarifies a broad range of topics such as the nature of the unique and what egoism is, that what is interesting can only be interesting through your interest and that the rest is valueless, and then closes with a discussion of his concept of the association/union of egoists.

Corrosive Consciousness on Immediatism Podcast

Enjoy the full text of Bellamy Fitzpatrick's book, Corrosive Consciousness, from Enemy Combatant Publications, now in podcast format. Primarily a critique of the more prominent voices and ideas in anarcho-primitivism, Bellamy's book also provides a model by which we can examine our own ideas and those of others. Bellamy's unique take on egoism and invitation to be cynical in our anarchism are welcome additions to the genre. Each thirty minute episode begins with a five minute intro to support your listening experience. Corrosive Consciousness is available from LittleBlackCart.com.

Toward an Army of Ghosts on Immediatism Podcast

Tom Nomad would like to see anarchists operate in increasingly illegible ways, whilst conducting real-time analysis about police operations, as explained in this companion volume to The Master's Tools. To challenge the state, anarchists must operate within the gaps in police coverage, with the intention of disrupting policing itself, which is what enacts the state in material reality. Thinking theory itself is action, and has value to the extent that the theorizing we are doing interrupts policing and so disrupts the state.

Permanent Subsistence Zones on Immediatism Podcast

"I am not aiming for relationships that always exclude any degree of sedentariness any more than I am aiming for an obligatory sedentariness.... The village isn't a stage on a downhill momentum toward urban life. The net and song and mask aren't first steps on a path toward rank and privilege, environmental degradation or ever increasing degrees of mediated lives. They are merely the outcome of sensual wisdom, of embeddedness, of organic life ways. In this sense my destination is primarily toward small villages and seasonal camps." ~Seaweed in Permanent Subsistence Zones

Immediatism podcast 80 & 81: Elpis Journal

A journal for pessimists and pessimist sympathizers

for pessimists and pessimist sympathizers

Elpis, a journal that lives in the space anarchism cohabits with nihilism
Whereas prior entries in this space concerned themselves more with fierce questions about who and what to destroy and less about what is political about hating everything and having no hope that (individual) human agency can effect enough of the change one would wish upon the world, Elpis is different.
