“El principio moral de la anarquía”, por Diego Abad de Santillán[*]:

el-sembrador

Como todos los principios de la filosofía anárquica, el principio moral carece de inmutabilidad, de perfección y acabamiento; está formándose constantemente en la sucesión de los actos humanos; es una fuerza de acción, en movimiento, dependiente de las oscilaciones y cambios mentales del individuo.

Bolsheviks Shooting Anarchists

AAA_0

Emma Goldman, Alexander Berkman (1922)

We have just received the following letter from our comrades Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman, who are now stranded in Stockholm. This letter gives us the truth about the terrible persecution of Anarchists in Russia. We ask all Anarchist and Syndicalist papers to republish this letter, and we hope comrades in this country will help us in pushing the sale of this issue, of which we have printed a much larger number than usual.

Dear Comrades, — The persecution of the revolutionary elements in Russia has not abated with the changed political and economic policies of the Bolsheviki. On the contrary, it has become more intense, more determined. The prisons of Russia, of Ukraina, of Siberia, are filled with men and women — aye, in some cases with mere children — who dare hold views that differ from those of the ruling Communist Party. We say “hold views” advisedly. For in the Russia of to-day it is not at all necessary to express your dissension in word or act to become subject to arrest; the mere holding of opposing views makes you the legitimate prey of the de facto supreme power of the land, the Tcheka, that almighty Bolshevik Okhrana, whose will knows neither law nor responsibility.

The Russian Tragedy (A Review and An Outlook)

Foreword

We live at a time when two civilisations are struggling for their existence. Present society is at death grips with the New Ideal. The Russian Revolution was but the first serious combat of the two forces, whose struggle must continue till the final triumph of the one or of the other.

The Russian Revolution has failed — failed of its ultimate purpose. But that failure is a temporary one. In the point of revolutionising the thought and feeling of the masses of Russia and of the world, in undermining the fundamental concepts of existing society, and lighting the torch of faith and hope for the Better Day, the Russian Revolution has been of incalculable educational and inspirational value to mankind.

LAS IDEAS LIBERTARIAS Y LA CUESTIÓN SOCIAL EN EL TANGO

TANGO

LAS IDEAS LIBERTARIAS Y LA CUESTIÓN SOCIAL EN EL TANGO
Javier Campo

La revolución social
es sin patria ni frontera
es la revolución obrera
derrumbando el capital,
es la casta universal,
es el pueblo soberano
negándole a su tirano
derechos de explotación
buscando la redención
de todo el género humano.

My Anarchism by Armando Diluvi

Demonstrations-1900-1950_20090815151904

A while ago, in an issue of Umanitá Nova, there was a debate between comrades Enzo Martucci and Malatesta. They topic was individualism. The one who is writing this understands anarchism from an individualistic perspective and is therefore jumping in.

LE DUE TATTICHE DELL’ ANARCHISMO:

PUB_364_BarricadaBarcelonaSemanaTragica1909

RICOSTRUIRE O DISTRUGGERE

Dal 1914 al 1922, in questi terribili otto anni di grandiosi e tragici eventi, l’umanità ha vissuto quanto un secolo. Ha conosciuto tutte le tragedie. Ha fatto tutte le esperienze. Ha vissuto la cannibalesca grande guerra. Ha visto aprirsi l’era della rivoluzione mondiale, che si concluderà — dopo una lunga e aspra epoca storica — o nel mutamento dell’ordinamento sociale, o nella caduta della civilizzazione europea nella barbarie.
Il problema peculiare e immanente e urgente dell’umanità è questo, secondo me: o l’umanità si sbarazza delle soprastrutture statali, o lo Stato soffoca e uccide l’umanità.
Per chi bene osservi, la causa della crisi profonda, che travaglia e squassa la civilizzazione dalle fondamenta, è nella crisi del principio di Stato.

“No, la práctica de la democracia no produce el motín,

la reclamación de derechos no acarrea trastornos.

La tiranía es la que produce el motín,

y la opresión es la que acarrea los trastornos” RFM (1900).

Riformisti o insurrezionisti?

umanitc3a0-nova

Errico Malatesta
Evidentemente, l’on. Zirardini ed i suoi compagni che l’applaudono credono che l’animo popolare si possa muovere e manovrare come si fa di un apparecchio elettrico comandato da un commutatore: fermo, avanti, indietro, ecc.
Un giorno conviene loro che i lavoratori stiano tranquilli e pensino solo a votare per mandarli al parlamento ed ai consigli comunali, ed essi predicano contro la violenza, contro l’illusione insurrezionista, e per l’evoluzione lenta, graduale, sicura, per la conquista legale dei pubblici poteri.
