anarcho-pragmatism: I do what I want, and I want to work with other people to build a better world.
Of course, this can't capture the whole of my personal philosophy. I think that at a certain level of abstraction, my personal philosophy, cliché as it may be, could maybe be described as a pursuit of truth, and seeking to help other people to find their own truth.
There are several people, who could be called philosophers, who I see as wanting to do the same, who have committed their lives to trying to help guide people to their own truth.
Bo Burnham, maybe? He's kind of hard to pin down.
If you have the time, and you want to explore ideas, read and watch and listen to media from these people with the aim of seeking to understand what the intentional message of their media is. I believe there's a very important and intentional message in the things that these people create.
@Anarkat sounds similar to Anarcho-Egoism / Egoism, definetely has that same aspect of "I do what I want" and rejecting dogma
@tenornix egoism seems to be more of a "fuck you I do what I want" kind of philosophy. I don't think it very well captures my personal view of the world, although the distinction is kind of unclear without getting down into the details of it.
@Anarkat I suppose arguing over if egoism is actually "fuck you I do what I want " or "I do what I want" and which one is your personal philosophy seems a bit pointless. I am not you and even with larger character limits per toot this format seems ill-suited to argue about that
In this case I think it really comes down to what you do with it personally. I mean you can proclaim to be the biggest humanist moralist upholder of values that has ever lived and still be a prick in-person and then you can bei an egoist and actually be really nice (if you get what I mean)
@tenornix well labels are kind of meaningless in the face of actual actions, right?
I don't really care very much what my philosophy could be labeled, as much as I'm interested in how my philosophy relates to other people.
