Anarchism : Anarchist and Anti-Authoritarianism -- 1937 ~ (24,010 Words / 159,021 Characters)
Part 1: A General Survey The Essential Factors of Production The principle of all economy consists in obtaining the relative maximum result from the least relative effort. This economic law should be sufficient in itself to combat and reject the present order of capitalism because, quite contrary to obtaining the maximum result from a minimum effort, the waste is enormous; the utilization of natural resources and technical facilities and science is negligible.
