How do you define anarchism?
Let's hear it!
Oh interesting! It's actually a Japanese translation (with vertical lines, very cool) of George Woodcock's Anarchism.
I'd never heard of Woodcock before but apparently he was largely an anti-war anarchist who was interestingly against both WWII and argued with Orwell about his statement that pacifism was "objectively pro-fascist" in the context of the Spanish Civil war.
Oh yeah CW suicide
Not entirely sure I'm happy with this piece, but it's been in my drafts long enough that I needed to finish it up tonight.
"I decide whether it is the right in me; outside me there is no right. If it is right for me, then it is right. Possibly, this won’t make it right for others; that’s their problem, not mine: they may defend themselves. And if something wasn’t right for the whole world, but was right for me, i.e., I wanted it, then I would ask nothing about the whole world."
I had a wonderful time at reading group yet again
I came away with a little pin prick of a question, or more of a hypothetical, that I've yet to comfortably answer for myself. What is the story of the egoist prisoner?
Anyways, for next week we will be reading a portion of the section My Intercourse. I've somewhat arbitrarily chosen page 231 of the Ardent Press print as where will stop, specifically the paragraph ending with the line
"Fool, you who are a unique humanity, that you put on airs about wanting to live for another than you yourself are."
Some of us will also be attending the @Viscera reading group of the same section on the Sunday! Check out their page for more info.
At least, in the contexts I’ve heard it
Think I thought up what could be called a “charity economy” at #nrg and I’m not sure how I feel about it
