ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR

Truth, the agreement between thinking and thing,-between thought and that,-is as desirable as seeing and hearing without illusion or confusion. Truth, the agreement between thinking and expression, is made a duty by Moralists, yet generally with reservations.

FROM ANARCHISM TO ARCHISM

MARDSEZ

Although Marsden avoided making an analysis of Stirner, she still adopted an eclectic few pithy theses from him; however, none were either fundamental or specific. The manner of her selective appropriation in particular was seen in the dispute she fought out with Tucker in her periodicals (see Parker, 1986, both articles).

“THE MAX STIRNER OF FEMINISM” ?

stirner 7

The development of Marsden’s theory formation is of interest here only insofar as it directly relates to the theme of anarchism in the relatively short period from ca. 1912 to 1914. Until 1912, Marsden’s viewpoint had progressed from a socialist to a feminist and humanist and finally to an individualist point of view, which she termed egoist and in which all that had come previously was “alike contained and transcended.” Literary “egoisms” had come into vogue since ca. 1890, most from the Continent, penetrating the Anglo-Saxon sphere (Nietzsche, Barrès, and others) and causing the discourse in Marsden’s »Freewoman« to affirm egoism before the name of Stirner was even mentioned. Nevertheless, the American culture critic Floyd Dell addressed Marsden even then — due to her programmatic opening article (»Bondwomen,« 23 Nov 1911) — admiringly as “The Max Stirner of Feminism” (»Women as World Builders,« p.103).

After Stirner’s »The Ego and His Own« appeared in English (London, 1912) this book seemed to Marsden to be of especially remarkable value. Contrary to habit, she even spoke about the book once, enthusiastically and with unchecked superlatives: it was (not “one of the,” but rather) “the” “most powerful work” that had ever appeared (1 Sept 1913). — Only he or she who is familiar with the peculiar ways in which Stirner’s thought was received, particularly those approving (Mackay, Ruest, Jünger; see Laska, 1996), will look more closely here.

THE NATURE OF HONOUR

MARDSEZ

THAT an inquiry into the nature of Honour resolves itself, in the main, into a dissertation on the nature of Morals naturally results from the intimate relation which exists between the two. The question of Honour is involved in the question of Morals, of which it is a special case, Honour being the attempt to incorporate within the sphere of the Moral something of the lure and distinction which belongs to the Immoral. Morals are the modes of conduct common to a community at any given period of its history: they are customs pure and simple, changing as customs will from time to time, but only in obedience to impulses operating through the entire community. Every man falls in with the customs of his age the greater part of his active life.

THE ILLUSION OF ANARCHISM

MARDSEZ
ANARCHISTS are an interesting body of peo-ple whom governments take too seriously and who, unfortunately, do not take themselves se-riously enough. Governments fear them as hos-tile, bent on mischief: whereas they are harm-less, after the disconcerting harmless manner of infants.

JUST AND MORAL

MARDSEZ

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOT justice and morality be it noted: since these last can be left as dead: monuments of the effete: bearing testimony to the long success of a trick of language at last found out and discredited. But justice and morality abandoned, there still remain the words descriptive of human conduct which furnished the grounds off which the trick was worked to such advantage-“just and moral.”

Έτσι, τόσο για τον Στίρνερ όσο και για τον Ντελέζ, η κυριαρχία του Κράτους λειτουργεί, όχι μόνο μέσω των κοινωνικών θεωριών του συμβολαίου, την ηθική και τους ορθολογικούς λόγους, αλλά πιο ουσιαστικά μέσω της ίδιας της ανθρωπιστικής επιθυμίας.

Πολεμος στο κρατος:Το υποκείμενο της Επιθυμίας

THOUGHT

 

 

 

 

 

Η κριτική του Στίρνερ και Ντελέζ του ανθρωπισμού του Διαφωτισμού που ενημερώνει τον αναρχισμό μπορεί να ειδωθεί πιο καθαρά στην αποδόμηση της έννοιας του ουσιοκρατικού υποκειμένου. Το έργο του Στίρνερ είναι η απόρριψη της ιδέας μίας ουσιοκρατικής ανθρώπινης υποκειμενικότητας, μιας ανθρώπινης ουσίας που δεν επηρεάζεται από την εξουσία.
