: You mean this Max Stirner?
Thus the communists affirm that the earth belongs rightfully to him who tills it, and its products to those who bring them out. I think it belongs to him who knows how to take it, or who does not let it be taken from him, does not let himself be deprived of it, or who does not let it be taken from him, does not let himself be deprived of it. If he appropriates it, then not only earth, but the right to it too, belongs to him. This is egoist right: it is right for me, therefore it is right.
: Sounds like a pretty good philosophy....for a fascist.
Let's not forget Lark's other good buddy, Plato:
There will be discovered to be some natures who ought to study philosophy and to be leaders in the State; and others who are not born to be philosophers, and are meant to be followers rather than leaders.
Now that the opportunism's oozing out all over this debate room, perhaps you can why I have made such a big deal out of EXCLUDING from revolutionary parties incompatible elements.
After all, isn't that the SAME THING that those lovely intentional communities do each time a prospective member applies for membership?
