Anarchism : Anarchist and Anti-Authoritarianism -- 1922 ~ (218 Words / 1,343 Characters)
The newspapers have announced the news of the signing of a treaty between the Papacy and the Soviets. However distressing this might be, it didn’t surprise me too much. I knew that the Church was making great efforts to penetrate Russia and that since the fall of czarism it considered the country as a vast prey it must grab... So this is what revolutions are good for! In Russia, like in Germany and as in the past in France, they are always used by the church, thanks to its unlimited powers of adaptation and penetration. Why did the Soviets do this? Are they so overwhelmed that they are reduced to accepting all concessions, all humiliations? Do they share the error, so widespread among Marxists, that the religious question is of no interest? A dangerous error... Here at “L’Idee Libre” we have always supported with sympathy the difficult work of the Soviets. But now, if the Bolshevik-papist treaty is re... (From :

Anarchism : Anarchist and Anti-Authoritarianism -- 1939 ~ (1,339 Words / 8,422 Characters)
No, liberty is not for us. We are too ignorant, too vain, too presumptuous, too cowardly, too vile, too corrupted — Marat I have to say it and I will say it. In taking up the pen I committed myself, all alone, to banishing all forms of partizanship and to refusing to retreat before any truths. Hypocrisy is repugnant to me, if it’s from the Right or the Left. This need for honesty has made me many enemies, even — and how ironic- among “friends” and “brothers.” Beat up on the capitalist and the fascist: that’s fine. Bravo! You’ll be encouraged, at least verbally (when you have to pay with your own money it’s already more difficult — you end up paying with your skin). But, loyal man, don’t allow yourself to criticize what is going on in your own house. Reveal the flaws of your neighbor, but close yo... (From :

Anarchism : Anarchist and Anti-Authoritarianism -- 1911 ~ (2,337 Words / 14,171 Characters)
We don’t have the pretension of responding in one article to questions as vast and interesting as these. This is the goal that our “Idée Libre” proposes to fulfill, and we only want to indicate here an overview of the work to be carried out, a work whose urgency and necessity escape no one. For too long we have contented ourselves with responding to these questions with a few pompous clichés or sonorous phrases. For too long we have limited ourselves to purely sentimental declarations or virulent affirmations. We can’t be satisfied with words or dreams, and we think it is time to substitute precise concepts based on discussion, experience, and knowledge for abstract formulas and puerile declamations. Determining the rational and tangible goals of our activity and envisaging the most serious and rapid means for realizing them: this is the fruitful task we must seek to carry out. It is this task that we want to colla... (From :
