From Zine Library:
Max Stirner (1806-1856) was the philosopher of conscious egoism. His book Der Einzige und sein Eigenthum (published in English in 1907 as The Ego and His Own) is the fundamental work of that philosophy and the philosophical basis of individualist anarchism. The German poet and anarchist writer John Henry Mackay (1864-1933) carefully researched Stirner’s life and published his biography in 1897, with a third, definitive edition in 1914. Hubert Kennedy’s translation is the first in English.

In the field of psychopathology, ‘nihilist delirium’ represents the negation of personality and/or the negation of one’s own body or of the surrounding world.
This text draws inspiration from the study of psychopathology, not to look for a problem concerning an alleged disease to be cured but to look for the eradication of so called ‘normality’ in the nihilist-egoist field, a question that seems to interest so much the anarchists totally immersed – and in a totalitarian way – in the social and in their ‘concreteness’.
The plunging of the nihilist dagger – as marked in ‘vertex abyss’ [Vertice Abisso] – sticks in the hands of those who, as individuals, do not want to surrender to the easy absolutizations of society and of the above mentioned ‘social’ anarchists; the dagger is placed in the hands of the individual who elevates himself above ‘everything’.
Relativism permeates the nihilist research that wants to penetrate in the rotten flesh of motionless determined thought, typical of adduced morality. (more…)

Nihilism is not only a contemplation of the vanity of things or the conviction that all things deserve to go in ruin; one puts oneself at work and ruins things… this is, so to speak, illogical; but the nihilist doesn’t believe in the constraint of being logic… it is the state of strong spirits and wills and they can’t stay motionless in front of the no ‘of the judgement’ – the no of action comes from their nature.
Annihilation through the hand indulges in the annihilation through the judgement. 1
FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF THE ITALIAN CRIMINAL TRIAL
1. THE PRINCIPLE OF EQUALITY (FORMAL AND SUBSTANTIAL)
It is the fundamental principle of the Italian law and as such it conditions necessarily all the supporters of the law. It is sanctioned by article 13 of the Constitution, according to which ‘all citizens have equal dignity and are equal in front of the law, without distinction of sex, race, language, political opinions, personal and social conditions (paragraph 1).

The parabola Ope Legis is the existential abode of those who redeem their lives in the ordinary-order of life.
The parabola stops and nullifies any existential movement that pretends the negation of the juridical ‘law’ and the right to man’s moral rules.
This is in open conflict with social anarchists – who follow the path of the penal code any time the face of justice shows itself under the guise of a judge’s robes.
The Fragmentation of life in relativism is the essence of the Nihilist – wandering exception in a continuous becoming of the Chaos that destroys the absolute and that permeates human society.
In the destruction of man’s moral rules there is also the negation of the salvation through instruments aiming at a solely technical defence, which nullify all singularities.
Ahead with the nihilist attack and the destruction of any human-sentient rule:
A Nihilist attack against the body of the moral judicial monster…

Translated from the Italian by Apio Ludd:
Ah! The odor and the stench blend.
Climbing the peak requires sharp nails and hands ready for the most painful wounds.
While you climb the peak of a decadent humanity, they fall, the rocks that crumble under your fingers fall.
To act boldly! To dare! Here they are, raging, the popular fears blended with Ressentiment toward our individual sovereignty… (more…)

This is a text from Federico Buono, one of the comrades investigated in the operation ‘Ardire’. He has chosen a non-judicial stance as concerns the charges pressed against him. May the nihilist germ spread.
AN ENDLESS VERTEX IN THE ABYSS
Anarchist and amoral anti-legalism
‘And in this way, whatever he has to endure, he does not despair in salvation. Fate leads him to the coffin, tied to the mad rope of hope.’
‘The Illusions of Mankind’ Eduardo Von Hartmann
In the afternoon of yesterday, 19th June, I was stopped in the city of Catania, where I’m living at the moment, by two Digos officers [political police] and taken to the police barracks.
There I was notified the act concerning the investigation on 270bis set up by nun Manuela Comodi. (more…)

This text was written during the feverish days of my trial for aggravated theft.
I’ve never wanted to know anything about such trial nor did I ask anybody about its result.
In my experience, my way of doing is an attempt to deny the law and live in incertitude. This makes my words even stronger.

THE DEPERSONALIZATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL
‘Body coexistent in an existence with a presence’
‘The divine is the cause of god, the human is the cause of man. My cause is neither divine nor human, neither the truth nor the good, neither the right nor freedom etc, but it is only what belongs to me, and it is not a general cause but a unique one, as I myself am unique too. There is nothing above me!’
‘I placed my cause on the nothingness’ The Ego and its Own M. Stirner
Through the concentric and concentration camp-like chain mails of the moral-judicial monster and of disabling annihilation of the individual a pre-planned life is overcome by detriment in an existence in the ‘free’ cages of human society, where to be programmed to failure determines the ‘instant’.

This world is shit. It’s not the first nor the last time that this will be said. Down with the state, work, citizenship, the spectacle, the stupefication of mass, the surveillance of spaces and thoughts, the standardization of everything, behaviors, relations, the lock-ups, the generalization of the means of control, of surveillance, of repression (etc, etc…) If you’re there, that’s what exists, among so many other state horrors, SCHOOL, national education, the institution of being a student. The school, along with the family, is the cement of our best of worlds.
School, a fundamental requirement.. School, it’s compulsory, in fact. Here we are, almost all of us have been through it. For more or less long times and in different establishments, but here we are, nearly all of us have been through it. Ghetto schools, elite schools. They’re wonderful these basic facts of school. The guardian state dispensing freely, for all and in equitable fashion, wise and all knowing. The elementary knowledge to all and each, the basis for knowing, the necessary know-how for living in the city, the particular useful things, the things that are worth more to know how to do, speak, shut-up if you want to get out of it.

‘Equality of “rights” is truly a ghost because rights are nothing more than permission, that is to say a question of mercy’ 1
THE LABYRINTH OF THE LAW
In its endless search for inferno, Cerberus penetrates like the epicentre of an emanation.
Impulsive, instinctive, immoral: ‘A BAD PASSION’.
The nihilist anarchist introduces the non-form into a circle where all things are born and die… (more…)

In the metaphorical text of this last fragment entitled ‘Rigor mortis ostativo’ the right-duty of the “defendant subject’ is disentangled.
The behavioural terms that the defendant-subject has chosen outline an apodictic sign, which is willing and ready to be displayed.
The ‘right’ is a limit prone to disentangle the events of a chosen path.
The basic material for getting the right is the same being-subject that takes shape in the comparison between the subject and the right in a merging of events, which becomes the foundations of the moral-judicial-monster in a sudden organic disposition, which nullifies any willing motion.
In the action of ‘claiming’ the singular tissues of the individual asking for a right become tissues of a decomposition of its own existential peculiarities.

“In the Cells of Redemption”: thoughts of Federico Buono locked up in the security cells of a police station. Fede has refused the public advocate, is not presenting himself at trial, nor will he appeal, in accordance with his anarchist anti-judicialism.
These thoughts will be included in the next issue of “Vertice Abisso” (more…)
