E-Mail: loompanx@olympus.net Phone: 206-385-2230 Fax: 206-385-7785 http://www.loompanics.com/ Description: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, 94 pp, soft cover., ISBN 0-915179-35-0 ORDER NUMBER 94062, $6.95 Description: A communist defense of pure greed? Out of the Situationist movement of the 1970's comes a challenging attempt to reconcile Marxist communism with capitalist egoism. The authors propose that selfishness is the highest form of communism, that all morality is a form of self-sacrifice, that the true egoist transcends petty materialism for a more rewarding form of self- fulfillment. One of the most challenging books you will ever read. --- The present forms of greed lose out, in the end, because they are *not greedy enough*" "Intelligence ends where morality begins. Morality ends where Intelli- gence begins. Every moral Is a psychic totem, a mental fetish-object, before which the moral fetishist subordinates himself, bows down, and offers sacrifice-indeed, offers *himself* in sacrifice. Every Ideal Is separated subjectivity; a part of the self separated off, ejected, frozen and held *over* the rest of the self" "In the end, egoism is our only friend; in the last analysis greed is the only thing we can trust. Any revolutionary who is to be counted on can only be in it for *himself*- *Un*selfish, people can always switch loyalty from one projection to another.- Contents include:
  • Wealth
  • Individualism and Collectivism
  • The Dialectic of Egoism
  • The Resonance of Egoisms
  • Communist Society
  • Radical Subjectivity
