>>588085 I find it hilarious when leftie fanboys from /lit/ try to imply his sympathies lay closer to them.
Take this quote from Die Weltstaat (1960) for instance: “The anarchist in his purest form is he, whose memory goes back the farthest: to pre-historical, even pre-mythical times; and who believes, that man at that time fulfilled his true purpose . . . In this sense the anarchist is the Ur-conservative, who traces the health and the disease of society back to the root.”
There's also his affinity for French royalists like de Rivarol (whom he wrote a biography for) and his explicit sympathy for the peasants of the Vendean revolt.
>>588159 I don't think Junger can at all be associated with Nietzsche, to be honest. In Aladdin's Problem he calls Nietzsche "Old Gunpowder-head" throughout, with a sort of contempt for Nietzsche. Junger's concept of the Anarch derives from the pre-Nietzschean philosopher Max Stirner, and Junger's views are primarily reactionary and individualistic, without the perspectivism or will to power that characterize Nietzsche.
>>588212 I don't think it ever occurred to Stirner that authority is good, he argued a lot for unions running everything. No doubt Junger was influenced by Stirner, but Junger's anarch is very different from Stirner's voluntary egoist.
>>588216 Ernst Junger developed his ideas beyond Max Stirner, and his life experience informs his interpretation. The influence of Max Stirner is undoubtable. There's no argument I can see, however, for a major influence upon Ernst Junger's thinking by Nietzsche for you to claim something as far out as he's the true heir of Nietzsche.
