In 1850, German free traders published the Abendpost (Evening post), a short-lived newspaper that synthesized egoism, atheism, free association, economic liberalism, and individual anarchism. Drawing on the ideas of Max Stirner (The Ego and Its Own), the paper offered a new political philosophy that its founders disowned by the time they became respected public figures.
