Melawan Kanibalisme Moral
Jason Lee Byas. Teks aslinya berjudul “Against Moral Cannibalism” dan merupakan bagian dari  C4SS Mutual Exchange Symposium on Anarchism and Egoism. Diterjemahkan ke Bahasa Indonesia oleh Iman Amirullah. Seperti yang Stirner maknai mengenai istilah tersebut, Aku bukan lah seorang egois. Aku memandang moralitas sebagai hal yang penting, baik untuk anarkisme maupun untuk kehidupan secara umum….
Bloody Rule and a Cannibal Order! Part I: The Egoist
This essay is a response to Jason Lee Byas’ series of essays: “Against Moral Cannibalism,” “Anarchy is Moral Order,” “The Authority of Yourself.” Many problems rear their heads when attempting to establish moral systems. Determining proper criteria, defining rights and wrongs, or establishing a certain degree of objectivity are just some of the rocky surfs…
Jason Lee Byas on The Curious Task: “How Should We Deal With Historic Injustice?”
C4SS fellow Jason Lee Byas recently joined Alex Aragona on “The Curious Task” to discuss the complexities of responding to questions of historic injustice, reparations, and compensation within a libertarian framework.
La autoridad de uno mismo
Jason Lee Byas Artículo original: The Authority of Yourself, publicado el 18 de febrero de 2022. Traducción española de Camila Figueroa. Este ensayo es parte de un Simposio de Intercambio Mutuo del C4SS sobre Anarquismo y Egoísmo. Lo que he dicho hasta ahora presenta un dilema sobre cómo los anarquistas deben abordar la moralidad. Si…
Egoism, Morality, and Anarchism Under Complexity
Jason Lee Byas has already articulated what I think is an interesting (and effective) challenge to Max Stirner’s critique of morality, as well as come to a conclusion that I very much endorse: namely, that self-interest and caring for the well-being of others need not be separate concerns. In my view, the most important contribution…
La anarquía es el orden moral
Jason Lee Byas. Artículo original publicado el 17 de febrero de 2022 con título Anarchy is Moral Order. Traducido al español por Camila Figueroa. Este ensayo es parte de un Simposio de Intercambio Mutuo del C4SS sobre Anarquismo y Egoísmo La anarquía es el orden moral Como argumenté en mi post anterior, cualquiera que se…
The Authority of Yourself
What I’ve said so far presents a dilemma for how anarchists should approach morality. If my first post is correct, we can’t ignore Stirner’s challenge. A morality that refuses to answer the amoralist requires systemic self-sacrifice with nothing in exchange. Such moral cannibalism would differ from other forms of domination only in its pervasiveness. Yet…
Anarchy is Moral Order
Anarchy Is Moral Order As I argued in my previous post, anyone who cares about morality needs a good answer to the amoralist challenge posed by someone like Stirner. As I also said there, this is especially true for those moralists who are also anarchists, since a morality without such an answer begins to look…
Against Moral Cannibalism
As Stirner means the term, I am not an egoist. I see morality as crucial, both to anarchism and to life in general. However, I think Stirnerite, amoralist egoism gets something very right about morality that most people get very wrong. In the next couple of posts, I’ll be saying more about why I reject…
Should We Give to Morally Imperfect People?
Suppose that we endorse something like this moral principle: The most moral way to live is to prevent as much suffering as possible.  This principle is quite demanding, as it means (for example) that spending six dollars on an expensive cup of coffee—when those six dollars could more effectively relieve suffering in the hands of…
Sex Work, After the Revolution
It will always remain astounding how the authoritarian left shares so much archaic morality with the right-wing when we talk about the idea of fucking for pay. The most deeply devoted members of the alt-right, the centrist core, and left-wing radicals all turn into pearl-clutching suburban soccer moms when the subject of sex-work is broached….
A Cop, a Dog, and a Computer Walk into a Bar: Personhood & Moral Subjectivity
I’m mostly writing about morality because I would very much like to stop writing about morality. I say this because morality is, ultimately, a social construct — which isn’t to say that it’s nothing, but is to say that it’s malleable. It’s a feeling. You can’t whip out a morality-o-meter and measure morality. Even further,…
Thoughts On Legality And Morality
What is the proper relation between legality and morality? To friends I stated that what was morally required is not what is legally required. This post is an exploration of my evolving thought on this issue. In the process of thinking further about it, I discovered a revised train of thought. As Ayn Rand stated:…
