Link of the day!

Sitting by my computer, checking out what people have dissed me for when it comes to wether Nietzsche had some nihilistic point of views or not, I read a part of the article about nihilism itself and my attention is immediately drawn to this very line:
"There are two sorts of nihilism. There is the violent nihilism, which proposes that change will never come until society’s current structures are destroyed, allowing, in theory, a re-making of societal constructs. Then, there is the existential nihilism, which has its roots in postmodern philosophy and Friedrich Nietzsche."

Now, what about this violent nihilism? Is it anarchistic or what? I asked they people at FIX who tends to know things funny to know with more or less practical use; and they referred me to NAG: Nihilist Assault Group.

Not exactly as I wanted to find, but interesting just the same. In their How it works page they begin with stating that "NAG is a common front for a variety of artists, freaks of technology, politically incorrect, and creative people in general. These are organized basicly in two types of groups: those we know of, and those we don’t."

And on the same page, their apprehension of the term Ni-hil-ism;
1. Philosophy.
a)An extreme form of skepticism that denies all existence.
b)A doctrine holding that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated.
2.Rejection of all distinctions in moral or religious value and a willingness to repudiate all previous theories of morality or religious belief.
3.The belief that destruction of existing political or social institutions is necessary for future improvement.
4.Also Nihilism. A diffuse, revolutionary movement of mid 19th-century Russia that scorned authority and tradition and believed in reason, materialism, and radical change in society and government through terrorism and assassination.
5.Psychiatry. A delusion, experienced in some mental disorders, that the world or one’s mind, body, or self does not exist.
(end quote)

So, peeps, check it out; Nihilist Assault Group!
