It divides responsibility…

The Anarchist and the Egoist in Love
How can the anarchist’s commitment to the wellbeing of all be reconciled with the egoist’s commitment to the wellbeing of oneself? I suggest reconciliation comes not from politics, nor from religion, nor from markets. The anarchist and the egoist find reconciliation in Love. Love is a big term. It is no wonder the ancient Greeks…

Review: Ayn Rand, Homosexuality, and Human Liberation
Let’s begin this review honestly: despite having referenced her in multiple articles, I—like almost all leftists regardless of ideology—do not like Ayn Rand and am most certainly not an Objectivist. I approach her much like Karl Hess did: seeing her value in comparison to Emma Goldman but rejecting her ostensive, unflattering solipsism. Yet, I consider Chris…

This new maxim would be “Fascism, Nazism, Communism, Statist Socialism, and Capitalism are superficial variations…
