Episode 21: Ghosts along Desire Pt. 1

Clarence John Laughlin, "4 Vision of Dead Desire", 1954

"I deny selflessness. If all would be for free, in all societies all has had to be desolation, all has had to be suicide. We grow weary with all that isn't the price of a fight: this is Nietzsche's greatness. [...] You can have a generous behaviour, but this whouldn't be good for our society."

Pierre Klossowski
