Richard Bach Jensen – Anarchist Terrorism and Global Diasporas, 1878–1914

During the quarter century before the First World War, anarchist terrorism was often blamed on the impact of anarchist agitators on naive immigrants. This article seeks to investigate the truth of this claim, focusing particularly on Italian emigrants, but also looking at some examples of Spanish, F…

Alexander Reid Ross – Against the Fascist Creep

Introduction Creeping Coup In the years before the Nazi invasion, as fascism pulled activists from the ranks of the left, Popular Front leader Léon Blum spoke of a “contagion” gripping France. Some fifty years later, scholar Philippe Burrin would refer to the “fascist drift” that attracted…

Tom Nomad – On Why Dr John Drury Is A Collaborationist Asshole

On many levels it seems almost pointless to write yet another text on Aufhebengate, especially a review about a book on the scandal and the controversies and collaboration-sympathizing that occurred in the vain, and inexplicable, attempt to defend John Drury from his own actions. Usually interperson…

Murray Bookchin – The Spanish Anarchists

Claustrophobia Collective – ‘Prison Abolition’ in a Neo-Colonial Ice Age

Introduction With the publication of our Discussion Bulletin, we had hoped to draw out some real strategic discussion regarding the position that all of us who make up the anarchist prison solidarity tendency find ourselves in. So far, very little of that has happened, and as a result, our politics…

Uchiyama Gudō – Common Consciousness

What is common consciousness? Before I answer to this, let me try to talk a bit about consciousness. Consciousness means to become aware of something by oneself. This, in turn, does not mean to discover something that others do not know, nor does it mean that one should not learn from others. To bec…

Leo Tolstoy – A Terrible Question

Is there in Russia sufficient grain to feed the people until the new crop is gathered ? Some say there is, others say there is not ; but no one knows this absolutely. But this must be known, and known definitely now before the beginning of the winter just as it is necessary for men who are going off…

Leo Tolstoy – Why the Christians are in such distress now

People peacefully live and act in accordance with each other only when they are connected by the same system of beliefs: when thy equally understand the goal and the purpose of their activity. This is true for families, and for different circles of people, and for political parties, and for entire d…

Marie-Louise Berneri – Italy After 1918

I. The revolutionary period 1919-1921 The Italian people played an unenthusiastic part during the last war. They had been strongly impregnated with socialist and anarchist ideas and they saw in the war, not a struggle for democracy, but another imperialist conflict. The left-wing parties did not bet…

Thorne Dreyer – Pigman Meets the Super Media

NEW YORK (LNS)—The media of the revolution is mushrooming through America. The growth of the underground and movement press is phenomenal. Equally notable is the outrage and fear which it creates in those whose interests it opposes. As the radical media grows, so do the attempts to repress it. In…

Leo Tolstoy – Why Do Men Stupefy Themselves?

Chapter 1 What is the explanation of the fact that people use things that stupefy them: vódka, wine, beer, hashish, opium, tobacco, and other things less common: ether, morphia, fly-agaric, etc.? Why did the practice begin? Why has it spread so rapidly, and why is it still spreading among all sorts…

Leo Tolstoy – Why Do People Stupefy Themselves? (N.H. Dole Translation)

Chapter 1 What is this demand for stupefying things,—vodka, wine, beer, hashish, opium, tobacco, and others less universally used; ether, morphine, mukhomor? Why did it begin and so quickly spread, and why does it still spread among all classes of men, savage and civilized alike? What does it mean…

Leo Tolstoy – Two Wars

Christendom has recently been the scene of two wars. One is now concluded, whereas the other still continues; but they were for a time being carried on simultaneously, and the contrast they present is very striking. The first—the Spanish-American war—was an old, vain, foolish, and cruel war, ino…

Leo Tolstoy – What the Orthodox Religion Really Is

Count Tolstoy has written for the Revue de Paris an article entitled “What the Orthodox Religion Really Is.” He indicts the Russian national Church for apostasy to the tenets of the founder of Christianity on almost every count, and gives this description of the orthodox religion, which, he decl…

Leo Tolstoy – To God or Mammon

"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."—Luke xvi. 13. "He that is not with me is against me, and he that gathers not for me scatters abroad."—Matthew xii. 30. E…

Leo Tolstoy – Trust Yourself

Trust yourself, growing out of childhood young people when your souls for the first time raise questions: who am I, why I live, and why all surrounding me people live? And the most concerning question – whether I live properly and so do all people surrounding me? Trust yourself even when those ans…

Leo Tolstoy – The Young Tsar

The young Czar had just ascended the throne. For five weeks he had worked without ceasing, in the way that Czars are accustomed to work. He had been attending to reports, signing papers, receiving ambassadors and high officials who came to be presented to him, and reviewing troops. He was tired, and…

Leo Tolstoy – The Teaching of Christ Narrated for Children

Preface Last year I have set up a small school of peasant children, ten to thirteen years old. I wanted to pass onto them the teaching of Christ in a way that would be clear to them and would have an impact on their life, and I told them, in my own words, those passages from the four Gospels that se…

Leo Tolstoy – There Are No Guilty People

I Mine is a strange and wonderful lot! The chances are that there is not a single wretched beggar suffering under the luxury and oppression of the rich who feels anything like as keenly as I do either the injustice, the cruelty, and the horror of their oppression of and contempt for the poor; or the…

Leo Tolstoy – The Law of Violence and the Law of Love

Introduction ‘And fear not them who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body.’ (Matt., X, 28) Because of the perversion of the Christianity, the life of the Christian people has become worse than of the pagans. The reform o…

Leo Tolstoy – Singing in the Village

Voices and an accordion sounded as if close by, though through the mist nobody could be seen. It was a work-day morning, and I was surprised to hear music. "Oh, it's the recruits' leave-taking," thought I, remembering that I had heard something a few days before about five men being drawn from our v…

Leo Tolstoy – The Meaning of the Russian Revolution

" We live in glorious times. . . Was there ever so much to do ? Our age is a revolutionary one in the best sense of the word— not of physical but moral revolution. Higher ideas of the social state, and of human perfection, are at work. I shall not live to see the harvest, but to sow in faith is no…

Leo Tolstoy – Shame!

There was a time between 1820 and 1830 when the officers of the Semenof regiment the flower of the youth at that time; men who were for the most part Freemasons, and subsequently Decembrists—decided not to use corporal punishment in their regiment, and, notwithstanding the stringent discipline the…
