skimmed it, but lol at the unexamined support for "freedom of contract"

i don't really know much about mutualism. is it cool? seems like it should be if its a philosophy for thieves (insofar as philosophy is cool)

kinda down with it. poetic and spitting way of saying "i want friends, not community."

the 100% humiliation seems just to be the relinquishing of one's will (i.e. one's creative emptiness/nothingness... although "will" might be slightly different for many egoists and posty types. still getting a handle on that) to the needs of yet another sacred conception ("macabre altar", "priestly", "masses"). i feel the sneer when i read "beneficiaries" lol

i'm not a very experienced person, but i've seen plenty of messed up shit go down in the name of Solidarity. the post-left inclination toward experienced friendship over conceptualized bonds seems -- to my inexperienced mind -- very useful and wise.

i find it kinda strange that RN would name these people "comedians," though! i'd think he'd save that as a compliment. maybe the sneer is even grander there

i hope others post their insight on this! it's an interesting quote. i mostly am just rambling so that i can get used to contributing to these discussions

"And we will love [Life] laughing!

Since the only serious people are those who know how to be actively engaged laughing.

And our hatred laughs...

Red laughter. Forward!"

this was a nice read. not a standout favorite or anything, but fun. i'm a fan of the above quote, as well as a few that have already been posted here.

dude seems a little pompous ("aristocratic outsiders against all society" and all that), but it's kind of endearing lol

been wanting to read this one for a while, thinking it'd be a lot more interesting than it was! probably set myself up for a little bit of a disappointment there.

overall it just seems to have gotten me hyped to read more (newer) stuff in this vein

agreed! i'm a little new to it, but am currently pretty into the coincidences of zen, nihilism, egoism, tao, and similar things; please feel free to post things you've liked in this strain! i wanna read All The (Ten Thousand) Things
