[PHILOSOPHY] The Ego and His Own by Max Stirner (1806 - 1856). Translated by Stephen T Byington (1869 - 1957)

Volunteers outside the USA: Stephen T Byington died in 1957. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, or Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.
You are assaulted with the notion that “you” are not as important as “we”, that the group, the society, the church, the state, that not only are these things not abstractions, but they are to be your concern above your own interests.
The first break in the spell of the mass-mind was Protagoras the Greek who said “Man is the measure of all things".
Centuries later there was Max Stirner the German who said “My concern is neither the divine nor the human, not the true, good, just, free, etc., but solely what is mine, and it is not a general one, but is — unique, as I am unique.”
( Kevin I. Slaughter)

This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections.

Project thread: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=72492
Please post in the project thread if you can help with proof-listening.

Level of PL: Standard
  • Does the intro match the one specified in the first post of the project thread (below the Magic Window)? 

  • Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time. 

  • Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time. 

  • Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading? 

  • Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?) 

  • Does the ending match the one specified in the first post of the project thread?
  • Are there 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file?
