Quotes

"The question for anarchists of all countries is the following: can our movement content itself with subsisting on the base of old forms of organization, of local groups having no organic link between them, and each acting on their side according to its particular ideology and particular practice?"

From : "The Old and New in Anarchism: A Reply to Comrade Malatesta," by Peter Arshinov, Delo Truda, No.30, May 1928, pages 4-11, from LibCom.org

"For the masses sense the futility of contradictory notions and avoid them instinctively; in spite of this, in a revolutionary period, they act and live in a libertarian fashion."

From : "The Old and New in Anarchism: A Reply to Comrade Malatesta," by Peter Arshinov, Delo Truda, No.30, May 1928, pages 4-11, from LibCom.org

"Libertarian communism cannot linger in the impasse of the past; it must go beyond it, in combating and surmounting its faults."

The present work is the first English translation of Peter Arshinov’s Istoriya Makhnovskogo Dvizheniya, originally published in 1923 by the “Gruppa Russkikh Anarkhistov v Germanii” (Group of Russian Anarchists in Germany) in Berlin. It was translated into English by Lorraine and Fredy Perlman. The English translation follows the Russian original very closely, except in instances when the translators could not find suitable English equivalents for Russian words. The words kulak (wealthy peasant), pomeshchiki (landlords, or gentry), and Cheka (Ch K, the initials of “Extraordinary Commission,” the Bolshevik secret security police) were in general not translated into English, since they refer to very specifi...
