(1828 - 1910) ~ Father of Christian Anarchism : In 1861, during the second of his European tours, Tolstoy met with Proudhon, with whom he exchanged ideas. Inspired by the encounter, Tolstoy returned to Yasnaya Polyana to found thirteen schools that were the first attempt to implement a practical model of libertarian education. (From : Anarchy Archives.)
• "Only by recognizing the land as just such an article of common possession as the sun and air will you be able, without bias and justly, to establish the ownership of land among all men, according to any of the existing projects or according to some new project composed or chosen by you in common." (From : "To the Working People," by Leo Tolstoy, Yasnaya P....)
• "It is necessary that men should understand things as they are, should call them by their right names, and should know that an army is an instrument for killing, and that the enrollment and management of an army -- the very things which Kings, Emperors, and Presidents occupy themselves with so self-confidently -- is a preparation for murder." (From : "'Thou Shalt Not Kill'," by Leo Tolstoy, August 8,....)
• "You are surprised that soldiers are taught that it is right to kill people in certain cases and in war, while in the books admitted to be holy by those who so teach, there is nothing like such a permission..." (From : "Letter to a Non-Commissioned Officer," by Leo Tol....)

e-text transcriber note:
Information was cropped off when the book used as a scan source was rebound. Emailed University of Southern Mississippi Libraries, and received confirmation from a librarian there concerning missing page references on plates: 1: The frontispiece has the word "Frontispiece.", in italics, no bracket, lower left. 2: The plate which faces page 56 in the TIA copy should face page 57 (was probably positioned incorrectly when rebound). 3: For plate facing page 82, bottom right reference reads, "[To face page 82." 4: For plate facing page 158, bottom right reference reads, "[To face page 158." 5: For the plate facing page 166, the plate actually says "[To face page 166."--but it faces 167 instead. --srjfoo, 2016-02-15
