But the superior, Nietzschean individual defines himself as the *non-aggressor,* and the same individual defines *others* as antagonistic or rights violating. The Rational Anarchist is NOT discussing George Orwells passive *Eloi* from The Time Machine. That is not the humanity he knows. He is talking about his own magnificent self. I have never heard of a Rational Anarchist who did not consider himself a superior person, quite capable of defense, aggression and acquisition of resources. The proof of this assertion is in their writings, in history and in introspection. I am not advocating psychologizing them. Oh, no. The Rational Anarchist is quite willing and able to become Nietzsches higher man. They will become what we in a civilized, governed society call a *prudent predator.* Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
