  • Is an ethical individualist an "activist"? The root word of activist is the Latin actus, "a doing, a driving force, or an impulse." Someone who acts on what she believes is an activist.

  • My comment to this video
    The problem with "individualist" is it appears self-centered. A deeper understanding of individualism is the drive to live according to one's highest ideals. Within our highest principles we can find unity with others whose highest principles may be different. Therefore the name "ethical individualist" would encompass a broader nonoviolent and nonsuppressive individualist community. Of course an individualistic ethics does not mean submission to a collective ethical norm. The principles of ethical individualism support freedom; free individuality, free thinking, and free morality.
