Anarchism : Anarchist and Anti-Authoritarianism -- 1896 ~ (2,908 Words / 17,545 Characters)
What? bomb‐throwing—killing—violence, useful? What sort of Anarchists are those who say that? Where is their Anarchism, their belief in freedom, and the right of every living man to his own life and liberty? Anarchism is not bomb throwing, violence, incendiarism, destruction. Odd that anything so self evident should need saying. Odder still that one set of Anarchists should be obliged to turn round in the thick of battle against the common foe to say it to another set. Real Anarchists too, not hybrids, with one eye on freedom and the other on property. Of course the capitalist press has naturally found it convenient to identify Anarchists with bombs, and equally of course, some of our “social” democratic friends have said within themselves, “There, there! so would we have it.” All the same, Anarchism not only is not, but in the nature of the case cannot be, bomb throwing.

The misery around us is increasing year by year. And yet there was never so much talk about labor as there is now, labor, for the welfare of which all professional politicians profess to work day and night.

Dunce.— Oh! Then, I suppose, if you have not got any money you had better leave off hoping for the plentiful things, and set to work to make what you want for yourself. Other Fellow.— Why, old man, you can’t! Dunce.— How's that? I feel as if I could. Other Fellow.— Not you. Money is there to stop you. It is a means used not only for making it difficult for you to get at what is ready‐made, but also for making it dangerous for you to start digging or planting, or making what you want for yourself. Dunce.— Then what on earth is money good for? (From : TheAnarchistLibrary.org.)
