My heart is with you Ferrer, always. From the moments when I was a isolated and alienated child in kidnergarten to the moments I was an Anarchist fighting to abolish the state while behind prison bars. You are an infinite source of inspiration.

We Anarchists always talk to each other about avoiding hero worship, and then you read about a person like Durruti. No tyrant, no corrupt police officer, no paid-off politician was safe around this man. In his youth, the banks he robbed poured money into Anarchist and labor union resistance movements through Europe and South America. And in his age, he stood and fought at the front lines of the largest Anarchist society ever witnessed by society during the Spanish Civil War. To us mere Anarchists, such a being is almost godlike.

I was young and poor when I first discovered Chomsky. The material is perfect for helping the mind crash through walls that authoritarian society has placed its confidence in. Chomsky's words might not do much to illuminate what a brand new Anarchist world will look like, but they are enough to establish the fundamental requirement of abolishing modern, 21st nation-state imperialism.

(1921 - 2006) ~ (1,937 Words / 13,700 Characters) : Growing up in the era of traditional proletarian socialism, with its working-class insurrections and struggles against classical fascism, as an adult he helped start the ecology movement, embraced the feminist movement as antihierarchical, and developed his own democratic, communalist politics.

• "...real growth occurs exactly when people have different views and confront each other in order to creatively arrive at more advanced levels of truth -- not adopt a low common denominator of ideas that is 'acceptable' to everyone but actually satisfies no one in the long run.

Friends and enemies know that this man was great in thought, will, persistent energy; they know also with what lofty contempt he looked down upon wealth, rank, glory, all the wretched ambitions which most human beings are base enough to entertain. A Russian gentleman related by marriage to the highest nobility of the empi... (From : Anarchy Archives (The text is from Michael Bakunin....)
