Confessions of a Failed Egoist: and Other Essays
Explication, rumination and fulmination from Portland author Trevor Blake. Sixteen selections range from a critique of Objectivism to the career of filmmaker Nabil Shaban (focusing on The Skin Horse, a documentary on the sex lives of cripples). In addition there is a history and usage of Multiple Names (popular from obscure art movements like Neoism to common folk mythologies), a biographical sketch of Baltimore native and mutant tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE, among other topics. Putting the and#8220;Iand#8221; in and#8220;historyand#8221;, the author touches on a cultural history of Egoism, a personal and#8220;trajectoryand#8221;through Anarchism, and his personal shift on 9/11 are also detailed herein.
and#8220;Confessions of a Failed Egoist‚ is somewhere at the crossroads between The Satanic Bible and Prometheus Rising. Everything you know is wrong, but donand#8217;t worry: Itand#8217;s just the punchline to the great epistemic joke. Blakeand#8217;s book is a throwback to the days of H.L. Mencken mercilessly skewering sacred cows on the left and right, while firmly rooted in our present day victimology industry conundrums. Blakeand#8217;s book provides inspiration for thought. Bring it up at your next boring work party and scare your colleagues.and#8221;

and#8220;Trevor Blake hails and assails the and#8216;ismand#8217; closest to His heart in a Mencken-like step-right-up, soapbox style that is smart, dense and fun to read. Blake is a meticulous thinker, and this book is bound to delight and challenge individualists, egoists, and people who would dramatically object to the idea of egoismand#8211;but then do and say exactly what they want to anyway.and#8221;
- Jack Donovan, author of Androphilia and The Way of Men
and#8220;This book is the fount and foundation of all human knowledge. It is a distillation of everything worth knowing as acted out by everyone worth knowing. Kings have abdicated their thrones for a glimpse and paupers have purchased palaces for the price of but a page.
This book can cure the sick and it can sic the cur. It can put lipstick on a sowand#8217;s ear and lead a hearse to wait. Bound by lightning and stronger than a nine mule team, donand#8217;t be the second soul to own one in your social circle.
Do you like enjoying things? Is it time to fill up on empty promises? Ready for the bait AND the switch? This is the book you must buy and today is the day you must buy it.
Confessions of a Failed Egoist is THE book. It is the book all prior books built up to and from which all following books descend. Learn self mastery from the masters of selfishness. Gamble with your sanity and fortunes without breaking a sweat. One copy of this book is said to have cured a man of an unspeakable venereal disease. Think of what two could do!
Others will opine that your opinion of other peopleand#8217;s opinions has lessened and for once they are correct. You wonand#8217;t give a fig, a snap or a tinkerand#8217;s dam for what they have to say. The clergy fear it until they heed itand#8217;s creed. Police ban it until they brandish it. A copy on every school childand#8217;s desk and two in every home, thatand#8217;s my dream. Dream with me!
Not a bucket shop. This book is real. Except for liars and cowards, you are obliged to read it or keep silent about it. A palpable irritant to Marxist and Muslim alike. This book stirs up trouble. It IS trouble.
If you fail to buy this book right now you will die within six months of your birthday. You MAY find romance without this book. Care to roll the dice?"
