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.

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.

Born Charlotte Mary Martin, she was the daughter of a well-to-do physician, Robert Spencer Martin. She was educated at Newnham College at Cambridge University. She married Arthur Wilson, a stockbroker, and the couple moved to London. Charlotte Wilson joined the Fabian Society in 1884 and soon joined its Executive Committee. At the same time she founded an informal political study group for 'advanced' thinkers, known as the Hampstead Historic Club (also known as the Karl Marx Society or The Proudhon Society[2]). This met in her former early 17th century farmhouse, called Wyldes, on the edge of Hampstead Heath.[3] No records of the club survive but there are references to it in the memoirs of several of those who attended. In her history ... (From : Wikipedia.org.)
