Nihilist Hedonism; or Cyberpunk as Eutopia

An interesting application of Stirnerite principles.


Instead of a Blog

I do not believe in objective standards, norms, ends, means or values; but I have a strong preference for the combination of hardass and self-indulgent traits one finds in the mercenary reaver cultures of places like medieval Burgundy. Essentially, I care about what I care about and consider anything else a means to that end. But I don’t really believe in ‘muhTroof’ or anything; I do not (for example) believe in ‘natural law’, I just believe in shooting thieves on sight. But if you can get away with stealing from defenseless peasants or the fat-asses of the power elite, good for you.

I have a lot in common with LaVeyan Satanism, but more through a sympathy of attitude than any fake-occultist stuff. I tend to favor the most extreme and materialistic aspects of civilization and barbarism, my ‘ideal society’ would be a bunch of heavily armed autistic stock jobbers who obey and disobey the law entirely based on sociopathic cost-benefit analysis.

What normies accuse libertarians of being (Blue Tribe says they’re greed-driven elitists who want poor children to starve; Red tribe says they’re drug addled hedonists who want cops to get shot) I actually am. Blue tribe says libertarianism would lead to billionaires with nukes running the world, Red tribe says it would lead to crime-ridden slums where all family and authority has disappeared. The Greens say it would lead to the extinction of entire biomes and the paving over of entire continents. I say “Good” to both, because cyperpunk is actually a pretty decent approximation of what I consider eutopian. I do not want to ‘form a country’ or ‘protect society’ or ‘help X group’, I want to see total flux where all the pretensions, imbecilities and cults of mankind are dissolved in the acid of relentless pursuit of profits and power, with no ‘greater aim’ than for the people who can to take what they want.

Whereas the populists like sheep and the authoritarians like wolves, I like lions. Individual superiority and a violent self-assertion combined with drop-of-the-hat flight in the face of serious danger; because my skin is more valuable than any cause.

This obviously goes against the grain and possibly the survival of a great majority of people, which I am also OK with. I don’t give a shit about them, anyway.

I am, in a special sense, a social Darwinist – but without the mistaken notion of teleology or ‘right’, but simple relentless processes of creative destruction. But I don’t mean pure Darwinism, which is inevitable, I like certain kinds of people and certain kinds of institutions, but I don’t see the need or the desire to somehow show that this is what people ‘ought’ to want or that this is ‘good’; on the other hand I would be happy to see the masses convinced of this (even if it were false) because what I want is more important than the entirety of mankind and any other living, non-living or theoretical entity. I am a physical objectivist, a moral nihilist, and a social solipsist.

  1. Yeah, you sound really brave sport, but talk is cheap. What are you doing in Western Civilization with that attitude? Much like Libertarians, you’re all talk. The Libertarians and their John Galt Hero don’t really impress me. John Galt is a coward. He ran away in that story. He had money and power and took it all with him when he ran and hid.
    All of you talk big, but you don’t live that way. You have a roof over your head, and don’t even tell me you won’t call cops if people threaten you. You anarchists have had it soft. You don’t want laws or rules, but they have made it easy for you. Go somewhere like Somalia where the Rule of Law doesn’t exist. Try and fend for yourself when their are armies of child soldiers collecting heads and rapine everyone that cannot stand against them.
    You have NEVER SEEN the life you support. I doubt that kind of life would appeal to you in REALITY. You can find lawless areas RIGHT NOW. I doubt you will live in a lawless zone. You have had the Aegis of Western Civilization to cradle your fantasies. In Real Life, its natural selection, the Law of the Jungle, the strong often fall to large bands of weaker predators. Your Lions aren’t Kings. They will flee from bands of Hyenas and Large Bull Elephants. Go and see it for yourself. This place isn’t that bad. You will MISS IT WHEN ITS GONE I EXPECT.

    • Western Civilization can suck a dead nigger’s dick and so can you. I don’t owe anything to anyone, and when I’m dead you can all burn in Hell for what I care.

    This does not sound very eutopic, lets put things into perspective..

    I would rather prefer to exist in an environemnt where I am simply left alone to look after myself and without sheep, wolves or lions on my way. Obviously I wouldnt pester any animal either.. That is true anarchism. Superior or inferior is not the key, freedom and personal control is the key I think, together with leaving others alone as well (of course the current environment does not allow either to be free or to leave each other alone hahaa).

    • “True anarchism” is a wankish religious term that I have no use for. It would be nice if everyone weren’t a fucking clown that annoyed the shit out of me, but barring some kind of transhumanist technovirus that’s never going to happen and isn’t even worth worrying about.

      • If u bothered to analyse the word anarchism you could easily understand that there is simply no room for “a wankish religious term” right? Certainly I am not referring to a religion just my own personal wish to be left alone by the sheep, lions or wolves.. I understand that you are more of a social animal but since there is no “true anarchism” let me want be unbothered..
