Episode 72 - Egoism IV: Bellamy

As you can imagine doing these little series of conversations is a tiny bit harder than I anticipated. I was hoping to have all of these available to you around the end of April. There is a ton of content locked up waiting for this to come out and I look forward to sharing it with you but… Egoism! IV!

We begin our discussion with Bellamy with a slightly off-topic discussion about catastrophe and leaf cutter ants (and eusocial insects). Around minute thirteen the Stirner begins. There is a quibble about the new title (and some nerdy translation talk). There is some history talk (Proudhon and Marx are discussed). What is to be done? Corrosive Consciousness is discussed, as is Bellamy’s new project Backwoods.

What it is is not a program. It is a mode of analysis.

The moment you believe you have more power, you do.

Sound editing by birds!


Intro: OBSTRUCTION – “Pressure Breaks”

    How could I learn more about Bellamy’s Backwoods project? Or other things he’s involved with…

    I really enjoy these conversations! As an Ex-anarchist floating around trying to make meaningful connections with the world around me, I find that Egoism, Nihilism and Buddhism provide the venues for useful ways forward into a new conception of liberation one apart form the tired old 20th century bull. Keep it up!
