“There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir: We must rise and follow her, When from every hill of flame She calls, and calls each vagabond by name.”
― William Bliss
“October had tremendous possibility. The summer’s oppressive heat was a distant memory, and the golden leaves promised a world full of beautiful adventures.”
― Sarah Guillory

“Reading the morning newspaper is the realist’s morning prayer. One orients one’s attitude toward the world either by God or by what the world is. The former gives as much security as the latter, in that one knows how one stands. ” – Hegel

Anarchosyndicalism against fascism: a response to recent lnsinuations

From Libcom

There may be problems with some people who identify with anarchosyndicalism, but it is not because there is any inherent correlation between it and fascism.

The question of anarchosyndicalism's theoretical stands against fascism, as well as it's long history of fighting against it, is certainly deserving of a long, well-documented article. But that is not what this is going to be. Rather, l would like to take on some recent insinuations, published in relation to the Michael Schmidt case, that there is some sort of inherent link between fascist ideology and anarchosyndicalism.

There has been a change.

in the comments section...

It may not be noticed by many initially but we hope that "flat comments" will accomplish many things.

1) It'll fix the broken theme (where responses aren't in the right place in the threaded comments)
2) It'll end hierarchy! (not really but it will end threads)
3) It'll improve comment quality. This might seem overly optimistic but it will require references to other comments to have to cite sources which will be a change for sure.
4) It'll make short drive-by comments... different.

Anarchist History: Confessions of an Awkward Pupil

From AK Press - by Barry Pateman

When the KSL issued our first publication, George Cores’ “Personal Recollections of the Anarchist Past” in 1992 there really was a shortage of good, accurate and informative books, articles or pamphlets about the history of anarchism. The works of Paul Avrich were the gold standard – exhaustively researched and reliable – and other occasional gems shone out of the pile. Some of the available material, though, was disturbingly erroneous and we have to put that down partly to a lack of primary material that led authors to make strange assumptions about people and their ideas.
