This new philosophy propositioned by me and Kiran Dave (co-author of this essay) precisely asserts that ethical misanthropist - in reality - possess no intention to run anyone’s life - nor allowing anyone running ours. Neither be a ruler nor be ruled. Neither be a master nor be a slave. And, to never sacrifice individuality for the ‘common good’ at any cost, at any place, at any price and at any moment. It is not immoral to embrace rational egoism, as long as the principles of NAP sustains the splendidness of psychological egoism; but, it is very amoral as well as unethical to invade into anyone’s private property, liberty and privacy. Since ages, society has specialized in the faculty of humanitarian interventionism. Since centuries, society has specialized in the egalitarianism of ignorance and imbecility. Therefore, it is now every essential to disown the shields nailed on the soul of an Individual by this society.
Ethical Misanthropism takes a keen look and scrutinizes this fact that there is a certain and elusively evident attitude hidden in almost every one of us, by the heart at some point of time or perpetually. This attitude has given birth to an alarming disease called as ‘followers disease’. In this disease, people start following each other in a tremendous and the minutest way, thus forming a global massive herd. And more people just keep following the herd. This has spread like an ugly epidemic all over the world. The ill-effects of this disease are that it jeopardizes ones journey towards being them. 10,000 years and still counting, many are just same here.
We all are like a caterpillar. Once it is born, it lives as a caterpillar for a few years. During this, if at all the caterpillar wanders and falls into the web of a spider it would have to stick on that web for the rest of his life and probably would be eaten up by a spider. There is absolutely no way out of this web. However, if he doesn’t fall in the trap in a few years, he’d turn out into a beautiful Butterfly with its own unique patterns and colors. We, humans, are like the caterpillar and the Web of the spider signifies the trap of the herd mentality. We would all rot in that same place, if we follow the same rugged culture. If we step out and silently observe this herd, we slowly realize our worth, our individuality and our true nature and potential. We see the flaws in others, and then in ourselves. We’d gradually see the change in us. We take off the ‘obnoxious veil’ that collectivism gave us and give birth to our Individual nature like a Butterfly.
Ethical Misanthropism is something that you achieve once you attempt. If you never try, you will never know who you are. They say that you are who really are when no one is watching. And it is being brave for being who you are, all the time. The big benefit of being an ethical misanthropist is that you would never be replaceable since there will no one like you, ever. Don’t let the noises affect you; instead hold your voice against the noise.
|“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” - Friedrich Nietzsche|
It is to be sensibly understood that only ethical misanthropist think, reason and act. Groups do not. The curious task of ethical misanthropism is to set man free from men. Even ‘followers disease’ cannot be cured by the defunct statists, psychological altruists and humanists. No social justice is humane in nature if the processes of it are anti-individualistic in characteristics. Unfortunately, the so-called humanists have not realized with their so-called real eyes that everything they own they owe to Capitalism. It is to be also noted that the theory of free market catallaxy cannot be condemned because the praxis of it have not experienced the execution phase yet. Most of the imbeciles cannot even differentiate between crony capitalism and capitalism. They blindly hail statists’ views on economics and simply get carried away by the theology of government-sponsored-free marketism. As per the ‘laws of common-sense’, to expect government sponsoring free marketism is like expecting the slaughterer to be an animal rights activist. By the way, can fire create the woods?
No socialists can rationally as well as logically answer back to sensible questions raised by the ethical misanthropists:
1) What’s the ontology of social responsibility?
2) Why it is not illegal when the groupists commit war against an Individual?
3) Why, taxation is good, rape is bad?
4) How much do I earn or own belongs to you and why?
5) Why do you still complain after voting?
6) Why do you have to infringe upon the choices and preferences of the non-voters by/through your voting?
7) Why are you so curious to invade into individual’s life than being curious to develop new ideas?
8) Why do you clamour for ‘people over profit’ when you impudently put positive liberalism above all?
9) Why do you compromise your liberty for more security, and also forcing others into this matrix?
10) Why do you uphold and facilitate the state’s snooping operation?
11) Why cannot you prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery?
The real hopeless victims of altruism are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. Many of them are normal, because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does. They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted. As long as the term “people” exists, the disarmed society will certainly beget an armed government. As long as there is taxation, no other fictional story can transcend the records of income-tax returns. As long as the altruists or intuitionists frown upon reason and voluntaryism, statism will persist and the imposed order will transcend over spontaneous order. Also sad to point out that many people are egoistic against ethical misanthropist but not egoistic against an apathetic machine called The Government.
My one-line simple conclusion: Ethical misanthropism is moral, whereas selfishness is quite virtuous, and; if you think that “I am just a selfish person” then let me remind you that you are acting in your own self-interest by judging that my selfishness is amoral than yours.
