James sounds pretty salty about egoist and primitivist tendencies. An egoist approach doesn't preclude someone from taking an interest in participating in meetings or in social action or in specifically opposing wage-slavery. A critique of civilization doesn't preclude resisting capitalism. A primitivist approach certainly doesn't require denouncing civilization "instead of" capitalism.

My thought is that wherever there is room for a without-adjectives approach, all efforts will likely be the better for it. My interests tend toward post-civ, but I don't begrudge those exploring transhumanist tendencies. I find egoist perspectives powerful and useful, but I'm also very interested in collaboration and community.
