Please remember to donate @ PayPal.Me/cultureanarchy to help out our show! 42. Liberty or Equality? [Part 6] MAZZINI, MENCKEN, AND DEMOCRACY: THE GOD THAT FAILED In this week's episode, we moved past Fichte and the origins of Romantic Nationalism in postwar Prussia, and move towards the new frontier of revolutionary sentiment in Italy. In the wake of the Napoleonic codes, the ending of the wars, and the retrenchment of counterrevolutionary conservatism [the divine right of kings] in...

[00:00:45] The Natural Slave's Procrustean Bed; Also, Are Libertarians Anti-Democratists? Procrustes was a psychotic denizen of Ancient Greece who used to kidnap passerby, feed them dinner, then ask them to lie down in his iron bed. If they were too tall for the bed, he chopped off their legs; if too short, he stretched them until they fit. He fit the man to the bed, instead of fitting the bed to the man. We see a similar pattern of retailoring the tailor (sartor resartus) in Democratic...

[00:00:45] Who Art Thou to the Bloody Priest of Nemi? Also, Why Libertarians ARE the Culture War This week we take a look at the culture war, since Max Stirner begins his critique of the Ancients in the second chapter of The Ego and His Own by firing a shot at the past. The Culture War is something that is almost universally misunderstood; for "Culture" is itself a concept that people misuse all of the time as if it meant something like "what I like" or "what I do not like"--where...

The Weekly Stirner (Week 2) [00:00:45] How Atheists Invented Christianity & Christianity Invented the Atheist: Also, Notes on Feuerbach, Der Freien, and the Young Hegelians There is much in Max Stirner's philosophy of egoism that was a direct reply to Ludwig Feuerbach's theory of liberalism and the latter's critique of religion. In this introduction to the first chapter of Stirner's book, we take a deeper look at Feuerbach's critique of Christianity in The Essence of Christianity. We also...

The Weekly Stirner [00:01:15] The State is "Other People": Why Libertarians Tend to Suck and Ancaps Tend to Suck Absolutely [01:02:55] Readings from Stirner's Ego and His own Week 1: "All Things are Nothing to Me" On this first installment of The Weekly Stirner, I give a shot of penicillin to the liberal strain of world-reforming, self-crucifying nonsense in contemporary libertarian thought. In so doing, I push the definition of THE STATE--the bugbear of all libertarian philosophy--to its...

37. LIBERTY OR EQUALITY: PART 5.2--ROMANTIC NATIONALISM: FICHTE'S ADDRESSES (8&14) & HAROLD'S SPAIN

PART 5.2: Diagnosing Romantic Nationalism This week we extend our survey of German Idealism away from its radically individualist incarnation in America in the thought of Ralph Waldo Emerson and towards the birth of romantic nationalism in 1800s Germany. Johann Gottlieb Fichte, a student of Kant, pushed Idealism towards radical subjectivism, and he sought to create a German Nation as the sublimation of a class-type ideal. As Germany smoldered under the yoke of Napoleon Bonaparte in the...

Liberty or Equality? Part III Also Sprach Emerson: Nietzsche and Emerson's "Self-Reliance"

Liberty or Equality? Pt. III Also Sprach Emerson: Nietzsche, Emerson's "Self-Reliance," and the Individual Secession This week, we explore Emerson's extrapolation of the insights of Critical Philosophy into a philosophy, not quite of ends, but of means. He cautions the idealist away from Utopian dreaming and towards critical self-reflection. The only way to improve this world is to improve oneself; and with this one dictum, Emerson takes a romp through civil society in order to effect a...

Liberty or Equality? Pt. I Emerson's "The Conservative": RALPH WALDO EMERSON, COSMIC JUSTICE, AND THE WILD CRAB OF CONSERVATISM This week, we touch of our investigation into the tensions between Liberty and Equality as we cover Ralph Waldo Emerson's great essay, THE CONSERVATIVE. The essay is a kind of intergenerational dialogue between the spirit of reform (Anarchy) and the body of conservative knowledge (Culture). As such, it provides a perfect launchpad for our upcoming investigations...

A Rationalist Critique of Deconstruction Part 4: Homo Agens, Homo Indolens, and Ecce Homo In Part 4, we tie up loose ends with Structuralism and point our way towards Derrida through Nietzsche. In doing so, we place our last rose upon the coffin of catholic empiricism, which claims that there is no a priori true information that was not first in the senses. In Part 5, I show where Orwell's Newspeak Dictionary and...

A Rationalist Critique of Deconstruction (Part 2): Structuralism's "Event" In order to understand Deconstruction, one must first understand Structuralism. Structuralism was a rationalist theory of linguistics in 1906-1911 which bypassed traditional grammar (logic-based, a priori grammar) in order to begin from a macrolinguistic premise. Instead of studying the manner in which individuals understand and utilize grammar as rational actors, Ferdinand de Saussure (Structuralism's godfather)set...

The Spirit of Market Anarchy: A Critique of New Atheism's Secular Statism (Part 4) "Pick Your Poison: Religion or the State?" In Part 4 of The Spirit of Market Anarchy, we evaluate the shortsighted goals of the secular statists like Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Annie Laurie Gaylor, and the Freedom From Religion Foundation in their advocacy for plans to "TAX THE CHURCH." This is, in its outline, perhaps the worst idea that atheists could espouse, since religious freedom, as shown in...

The Spirit of Market Anarchy: A Critique of New Atheism's Secular Statism (Part 3.1) The "Secular Origins" Myth vs. Laissez-Faire In Part 3, I take on the idea that the United States Constitution was an agent of "secularism" or of religious freedom and the disestablishment of churches throughout the United States. Not only is this idea ahistorical and incorrect, it is also an ethical doctrine of secular statism that serves the statist religion with an article of faith. Taking away that...
