Welcome to episode 2 of the FRR Books Podcast series on Max Stirner’s The Unique and its Property translated by Wolif Landstreicher. In this podcast we cover section 1.2.3 The Hierarchy, completing section 1.2, stopping just before section 1.3 The Free.
This podcast covers the translator’s introduction and stops at section 1.2 Human Beings of Ancient and Modern Times.
Why has egoism recently emerged as an obsession in anarchist thought, and Stirner a mascot of anarchism?
Is it because the recent translation has revitalized the dusty rhetoric of The Ego and His Own into something more accessible and interesting to younger anarchists?
Is it due to the multiple colorful internet personalites that go to great lengths to popularize and fiercely defend Stirner's ideas across various social media platforms?
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. I would like to use this space to humbly correct what has been written about me and the subject of my article.
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.

From Anarchist Writers - by anarcho
Individualist anarchism has always been very much a minority within the anarchist movement and given some of its advocates, you can understand why. However, it is always good to see material from the past made available to modern day radicals simply in order to allow people to judge for themselves.
