Chekov Feeney – Somalia, Kenya and the instability of some modern African nations

A question on Somalia It is a grave error for anarchists to fall into the trap of attributing the chaos and instability of some modern African nations as being due to the weakness of the state. In fact I would tend to see the exact opposite as being more true, the imposition of artificial states whi…

CrimethInc. – The Russian Counterrevolution

Introduction Since the mid-19th century, anarchists have maintained that the key to liberation is not to seize the state but to abolish it.

Union of Green Libertarians – Against the conversion of the University to a regimental prison

We wrote in the past that as anarchists and autonomists of the countryside, our position is disadvantageous when it comes to the incidents of the cities.

Bob Altemeyer – The Authoritarians

Herbert L. Osgood – Scientific Anarchism

IN ANARCHISM we have the extreme antithesis of socialism and communism. The socialist desires so to extend the sphere of the state that it shall embrace all the more important concerns of life. The communist, at least of the older school, would make the sway of authority and the routine which follow…

Clifford Baverel – Modern Anarchism in Social Movements

[Abstract] Since its launch in 2011, the Occupy Wall Street movement has been linked with anarchist theory and practice by several scholars such as David Graeber, Nathan Schneider, and Mark Bray.

Ruth Kinna – Annotated Bibliography on Anarchism

Anarchism developed as a distinctive strain within radical and revolutionary thought in the mid-19th century. The political theory, often associated with Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (b. 1809–d. 1865), Michael Bakunin (b. 1814–d. 1876), and Peter Kropotkin (b. 1842–d. 1921), appeared in parallel…

Nestor Makhno – Anarchism and Our Times
