What "is" (anarchist) nihilism?
Sort of related, but I've been reading desert and I understand some of the themes, but I'm lost at a couple of ideas. I'll have to reread through my notes later, but I want to ask if someone could explain what makes civilization inherently harmful.

Tbf Op you shouldn't base your view on any kind of ideology or idea on how people people on the internet behave. Anarchists and marxists online are retards like everyone else on the web. And this even ignoring e-celebs and grifters. Read theory and remember that those retards still want a better world like you do, so be nice to them. (except for the aformentioned e-celebs, they only deserve beatings).

So I've read Stirner. I've read a lot of works from the anarchistlibrary. I a a full-blown post-leftist.

Now what?

I don't know what to do. Continuing to wageslave feels very wrong, but what the fuck is the alternative? Pull a Kazynzski and innawoods? Be like Novatore? Kill myself? What the fuck was the point in reading Stirner if I can do nothing with egoism except feel ever so much more depressed at the conformist life I'm leading?

I want to abandon my identity but it hurts so much to part with it.
Despite my idenity having me and not the inverse, it still feels so painful and terrifying to imagine my life without it.
I wish I could live a life of complete rejection - rejection of capitalism and the self-cannibalizing nature it encourages.
I wish I was happy.

I want to stop merely wishing, but everything is so difficult.

Self-annihilation alone will leave you a helpless slave to your impulses. Why? Because you cannot escape the purpose of an identity: to give you coordinates, to help you navigate the world. There is no such thing as abandoning your identity; you either paint your own mask and wear it, or you wear the mask that others will paint for you - to merely destroy your mask is to identify with the mask of madness.
The irony is that a life of complete rejection is precisely what capitalism results in. It's a system that encourages us to reject our desires so that we may identify with our impulses. It is a system that pushes us to throw away our identities in favor of the carefully crafted identities that we are sold. The nihilistic goal of abandoning the ego without replacement is a mirror of such self-cannibalization.
You should neither reject capitalism nor should you accept it, because in both instances the result is the same: wear the mask that the other paints. No, the only solution is to see this dialectic through to the end and start anew. You have to abandon your identity in order to create a new one. You have to give up your dreams in order to dream differently. Either way, your only free choice is to accept responsibility for your desires and the pain that comes with being free. There is no easy way out.

identities are mostly just a habit of thought, it is learned behavior. You can choose to think about stuff unrelated to an identity, at first it will require a little concentration and deliberate attention, once that becomes your new habit, you're free.

>>2936
who are you, this comment feels like something i'd write but i dont remember writing it

wait fuck nvm your conclution isnt dialectical enough. good try comr8

to fix my post make these edits: The new identity you take on cant just be another particular identity, but one which rises above all identities by explicitly embracing progress/negation/surpassing. Without that you fall into a stupid loop, where you have a solid identity, you can negate it if you want, but only to take on another identity. This is true in some ways but it's not so futile - while yes in order to function you need some positive identity (or values, coordinates, etc. to identify with), this identity doesnt have to resemble the old one, or any unexamined identity. It can and should be fundamentally different, so that rather than staying fixed and tribal, it's expansive and universal, self-overcoming without having to accept some outside identity over and over, or being stuck (as you said) in the madness of pure negation.

Also interestingly, it seems like many schizophrenics probably don't even go all the way to self-negation, but hold on to both - the progressive and regressive directions, and make themselves really crazy by not just progressing the thought and accepting negation wholesale. (just from my reading of R. D. Laing and other shit :P)

This. You can't just make a clean break from your identity. You have to break it as you break a habit. It's difficult because habits are comfortable and lure you into them. It's like a desire path or pleasure path (picrel). Once the habit is well-trod it becomes more easy and appealing, while an alternative route is less appealing and might be a little rougher. But you have to carve out the new path over time through repeated use while you let the other path disappear through disuse. You may even be able to speed up the disappearance in some way by deliberately provoking the stimuli that would prompt the habit and then choosing to do something different and new instead, sort of analogous to aerating the soil and putting down grass seed or something. Don't think of the process as one of creating or building, but as one of growing. You are an organism and you will get a lot farther if you treat yourself like a soft squishy thing that has to be molded over time and induced to adaptation.

In my experience "tankies" are by far the least retarded of mainstream leftists. Most self-proclaimed post leftists, even on this board, are liberals in denial. Most anarchists and berniebros are indistinguishable. Not all of them, of course. But I'll take a random tankie over a random anarchist any day of the week.

I don't see why any organisation should be done except for incredibly destructive praxis.

My mental existence, caused by America has been constant existential agony. It is an ocean of depression with the occasional island of hope but they sink too.

So if I organise, omnicide will always be on my heart. The largest uranium deposits in the world, all weaponized into an arsenal. Nuke and invade everything that has ever irritated me. Maybe write an autobiography. Then challenge any survivors to solve the existential problem that would drive someone to this edge.

It won't be a chimpout like Hitler, as well. Going to be realpolitik about it. Invade countries left and right, kill everything, but get skilled second coming of Molotov to fix it up. Rinse and repeat. Only nuke and invade when victory is certain.

Fucking go for a billion death count high score
Victims of Communism want a number, they can get it.

This world forbade me from being the hero a long time ago. I can only be the villain.

It won't stop with me to. I plan to have a family and give my existential hatred to them as well, hypocrite scum I am. Only the possibility of my genes destroying America keeps me going.
