About For Ourselves: Council for Generalized Self-Management

The Right To Be Greedy: Theses On The Practical Necessity Of Demanding Everything is a book published in 1974 by an American Situationist collective called "For Ourselves: Council for Generalized Self-Management". Post-left anarchist Bob Black describes it in its preface as an "audacious attempt to synthesize a collectivist social vision of left-wing origin with an individualistic (for lack of a better word) ethic usually articulated on the right".

Its authors say that "[t]he positive conception of egoism, the perspective of communist egoism, is the very heart and unity of our theoretical and practical coherence".[2] It is highly influenced by the work of Max Stirner. A reprinting of the work in the eighties was done by Loompanics Unlimited with the involvement of Bob Black who also wrote the preface to it.

“It’s still the same old story. The fight for love’ and glory. A case of do or die.” - theme song from Casablanca Next time you are at a party, or a bar, or any of the other bad excuses for festivity that our time has to oiler, notice the behavior of the couples there. See how they clutch at each other constantly, how they can hardly bear to he separated for one second, how one will suspiciously follow with their eyes any attractive person passing by.

MAYDAZE! a thesis on the celebration of alienation This is supposed to be a celebration, but there is a stale scent about it — the scent of failure held up as success, of moldy platitudes held up as useful, critical ideas — the scent of an old, dying world, not the fresh air of a new one. Once again people come together because, deep down, all of them are fed up with their present existence; all of them want a life of unstifled tenderness, free creativity, limitless adventure. And once again, the Left, like the constipated rhinoceros it is, has managed after immense grunting and straining to produce the same dry, evil-smelling little pellets of slogans: Jobs or Income Now! No Wage Cuts ... (From : TheAnarchistLibrary.org.)

The positive conception of egoism, the perspective of communist egoism, is the very heart and unity of our theoretical and practical coherence. This perspective is the essence of what separates us from both the left and the right. We cannot allow its fundamental importance to be obscured, or ourselves to be mistaken for either the right or the left. We cannot allow any Leninist organization to get away with claiming that it is only ‘a little bit pregnant’ with state capitalism. Introduction 1 Greed in its fullest sense is the only possible basis of communist society. 2 The present forms of greed lose out, in the end, because they turn out to be not greedy enough. 3 The repression of e...
