It's buried in the old posts I can't load but someone posted why we got into egoism/Stirner
I was first exposed through the memes and I thought it was super cringe because the people who posted Stirner memes were really insufferable and reactionary back then (and.... okay maybe that hasn't changed) but then I read The Right to Be Greedy and found it a decent bridge to jump straight into The Unique and Its Property.
Helped me process my transness and also got me through sexual assault trauma, I don't know the extent to which I still find egoism useful anymore except in an insurrectionist way but it's still important to me for what it helped me get through and accept.
I'm much more interested in the parallels between the Unique and eastern religion though like the anatta, for the purpose of providing better language to articulate Buddhist/Hindu concepts but most egoists aren't that interested in that haha
Actually I think glitch-soc might have fixed this one upstream already so I'll update glitch-soc later 💚 seems like this will fix some other issues too!
I'm back, and I did notice that the "Local Timeline" is having some bugs. Unfortunately it seems to be a Mastodon bug. I'll report it later, but posts made since I restarted appear to be showing up fine.
It's kind of annoying that Mastodon requires so much constant maintenance to keep working normally so I'm considering moving Spectres to Pleroma or something.
There's other mods here too dont worry
Spectres.space is a spooky collective of anarchists, communists, egoists, egocoms, nihilists, and witches. Boo!
