In every society there have always been those who hopelessly desire to create their own lives. These passionate beings want to live wildly and relish in boundless possibility. The anarchist mantra of "no gods, no masters" embodies this spiritual outlook; for one who chooses life becomes their own master. Those who endeavor to create their existence must find ways that employ strategies unique to their situation. They write their own story. The outlaw accepts that they are an outsider, for once the pandora's box of freedom is opened, one's life cannot be the same.

From The Conjure House

This is a story about lies, cheapness, and the destruction of a seven-year project in the blink of an eye. It’s about idiocy, sheer blindness, and a willfullness to ignorance that would make even the most Catholic among us blush. It is a tale of Wolfi Landstreicher associating an entire philosophy with the most putrid of politics for a few dollars in his bank account.

The Unique and Its Property

In the first new English-language translation since 1907, egoist anarchist author and historian Wolfi Landstreicher has brought forward both the form and the intent of Stirner’s work. Where Byington downplayed or missed Stirner’s more biting criticisms and his humor, this new edition delivers every “occasional crudity” and all the “playful ferocity” found in the original German.

From Anti-Fascist News - By Alexander Reid Ross

My piece, “The Left-Overs: How Fascists Court the Post-Left,” has been shared on Facebook more than 2,000 times now and numerous interpretations have made the rounds. I feel like I must apologize for the inappropriate uses of “Left-Overs,” which unfortunately came across to some as against the post-left specifically.

After all, with lions on the same plains, with both of us following the same prey and stealing each others' kills, we became human. We have a lot in common. It's not the lions' fault if some humans later become philosophers.

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.
