As for the enlightened folk, they are, in this regard as in every other, wallowing in uncertainty and turmoil. The contradiction inevitably spawned by the principle of morality is one that they do not wittingly perceive, on account of the confusion of their ideas . They dare not dismiss apostates as immoral , because they themselves Rirt with apostasy, with the desertion orone religion for another, nor are they willing to turn away trom the moralizing viewpoint, They could truly seize upon an opportunity to shrug free of it!

Remaining in their company is every whit as egotistical as isolating myself from them. When it comes to competition, to be sure, everyone is on his own. But should competition some day disappear, because concerted effort will have been acknowledged as more beneficial than isolation, then will not every single indi­ vidual inside the associations be equally egoistic and out for his own interests?

" Only i ndividuality acknowledges no inj u nction to "fidelity" and "comm itment": it permits everything, including apostasy and desertion . Unwittingly, the moralists let themselves be guided by that principle when they have to sit in judgment of a deserter defecting to their own Party: they certainly are not embarrassed by proselytization . They ought simply to take cognizance of the fact that one ought to behave immorally if one wishes to behave as an individual; in other words, one should abj u re one's belief and even break one's pledge in order to make one's own decisions, instead ofbeing g uided by considerations of a moral nature.
