Nobody is paying to see your dogs.

Yes but I'm in charge

that's the kind of ambition we need.

Do you have a relentlessly pessimistic view of humanity like I do? Boy howdy! Do I have the books for you!

Man and Technics is an accurate prediction of current events. Spengler is always good for hopelessness but the last paragraph of this book is the greatest paragraph in history:

Quote:
We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who, during the eruption of Vesuvius, died at his post because they forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one thing that can not be taken from a man.


:bammer: :bammer:

But speaking of hopelessness, have you heard of Mark Fisher? No wonder he offed himself after writing Capitalist Realism. Good book though.

Fisher tended to view the act of critique as generative, a getting-outside-oneself. It really shows through in his essays on film and music. He killed himself because he had severe depression. Pretty good book though.

but it's capitalism's fault he was depressed.

During my banishment, I reread Stirner's stuff and started delving into some post leftist books, and though it's still too lefty for me, I like a lot of what I'm hearing...

1. I'm already an egoist, so that appeals to me right away.
2. I don't have to work.
3. I can be an anarchist and still dunk on Marxists? Is this heaven?

Anyway this might give you some idea where I'm coming from.

Turn in your hymnals to page 71 and let us sing aphorism 43 of Beyond Good and Evil - The Free Spirit... please stand...

Quote:
Will they be new friends of "truth," these coming philosophers? Very probably, for all philosophers hitherto have loved their truths. But assuredly they will not be dogmatists. It must be contrary to their pride, and also contrary to their taste, that their truth should still be truth for every one—that which has hitherto been the secret wish and ultimate purpose of all dogmatic efforts. "My opinion is MY opinion: another person has not easily a right to it"—such a philosopher of the future will say, perhaps. One must renounce the bad taste of wishing to agree with many people. "Good" is no longer good when one's neighbor takes it into his mouth. And how could there be a "common good"! The expression contradicts itself; that which can be common is always of small value. In the end things must be as they are and have always been—the great things remain for the great, the abysses for the profound, the delicacies and thrills for the refined, and, to sum up shortly, everything rare for the rare.


Thank ya Brothers and Sisters. Praise the Ubermensch...praise the Ubermensch... Now if we turn to Will To Power, page 162, verse 287...

God is good—um...er... I mean... The Superman is coming!

I've been reading up on some of my old Dorothy Day texts from college and thinking more and more about distributism. I'm realizing that I support several things that put the idea into practice already, like purchasing my produce from CSAs, but I'm not sure the distributism model could ever be more than a lifestyle choice for people. I don't see how it would work on a large scale except maybe in the way of more antitrust type reform in capitalism.
