Living Beyond Morality As a Nietzschean Anarchist

As a student of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, I share Nietzsche’s and Kierkegaard’s conviction that philosophy should deeply reflect the personal concerns of individual human beings. As a Nietzschean Anarchist, this entails a rejection of traditional values, including the christian religion. As a Nietzschean Anarchist, I declare “emancipation from god” and would encourage you…

When Should I Change My Car’s Oil?

It’s a very common question – but it’s hard to get a straight answer. I’ll try to give you one. It depends. On your particular car. And how you drive it. First, let’s consider the car you’ve got. The older it is, the more often you’ll need to change the oil. Especially if it’s older than circa late…

Taking Back The “L” Word

In the United States, liberalism took strong root because it had little opposition to its ideals, whereas in Europe liberalism was opposed by many reactionary interests.

Have you noticed? That formerly legal passing zones are systematically being painted over double-yellow? But it’s not just that. Safe, efficient passing as such has been targeted for termination – whether deliberately or inadvertently – via conflicting laws that allow legal passing only by doing so unsafely. Here’s what I mean by that:  If you’ve…

Baby Steps For Kleptoholics Anonymous

I’ve always been a book thief. Growing up in daycare, me and this other kid would ride our bikes to the library all the time. Libraries are socialist institutions where people read books they didn’t pay for, because somehow that’s okay, when it’s done in this special venue. It was a real nice one. A…
