Existentialist anarchismAlbert Camus is often cited as a proponent of existentialism (the philosophy that he was associated with during his own lifetime), but Camus himself refused this particular label. Also Camus is known as an ardent critic of marxism and marxists regimes and aligned himself with anarchism while also being a critic of modern capitalist society and fascism."Camus also supported the Groupes de Liaison Internationale which sought to give aid to opponents of fascism and Stalinism, and which refused to take the side of American capitalism."http://flag.blackened.net/af/org/issue68/anarchism_albert_camus.html "Albert Camus and the Anarchists" by ORGANISE! The influence of Nietzsche on Camus is well known and as such the essay The Rebel presents an anarchist view on politics influenced as much as by Nietzsche as by Max Stirner who are treated in that book. "Like Nietzsche, he maintains a special admiration for Greek heroic values and pessimism for classical virtues like courage and honor. What might be termed Romantic values also merit particular esteem within his philosophy: passion, absorption in being, sensory experience, the glory of the moment, the beauty of the world." "The general secretary of the Fédération Anarchiste, Georges Fontenis, also reviewed Camus's book (The Rebel) in Le Libertaire. To the title question 'Is the revolt of Camus the same as ours?', Fontenis replied that it was."
In the United Kingdom Herbert Read, who was highly influenced by Max Stirner and later came close to existentialism (see existentialist anarchism), said of Nietzsche: "It was Nietzsche who first made us conscious of the significance of the individual as a term in the evolutionary process-in that part of the evolutionary process which has still to take place."
