Passions

The attractive machinery. The theory of passionate attraction (excerpts) - Charles Fourier

Excerpts from various works by Charles Fourier (1772-1837) which set out his main ideas: the combined order of the passionate series, the 12 passions, gluttony, attractive labor, education, criticism of free will and civilization. Despite several mistakes, such as the maintenance of the wage system (and hence class society, commodity and state), and the illusion about the possibility of an alternative economy parallel to capitalism, and also a certain teleological naturalist fantasy, the fundamental ideas of Charles Fourier remain extremely insightful and impressive.

The Theory of the Four Movements - Charles Fourier

A weird and wonderful proto-socialist, proto-surrealist, anti-civ utopian vision for the world.
