The Revolutionary Ideas of Bakunin

An introduction to the ideas of Bakunin, one of the founders of anarchist thought and movement.

Will the real Bakunin please stand up?

A reply to Leninists distortions about Bakunin. Includes a summary of his key anarchist ideas and anarchism's key difference with Leninism.

Review: Imagine by Sheridan and McCombes

A review of Imagine by Tommy Sheridan and Alan McCombes, the (then) leaders of the Scotish Socialist Party. An attempt by Trotskyists to become libertarian sounding are not very convincing.

The irresistible correctness of anarchism

A lengthy critique of the SWP's attempt to rewrite the history of the resistance to Italian fascism in the early 1920s as well as the revolutionary Red Years after World War I. An important, if not well known, bit of anarchist history.

Thatcher: Putting the fun back into funeral

While something to oppose, suggestions of a state funeral for Thatcher seem fitting as neo-liberalism implodes around us. Nationalising her death seems an ideal insult. It also shows how bankrupt and Thatcherite New Labour is -- as if we needed more evidence!

On the Bolshevik Myth

An anarchist critique of an ISO attack on the Makhnovists. Corrects the distortions and shows how the Makhnovists show that Bolshevik authoritarian had its roots in Leninist ideology and cannot be solely explained by the civil war. Also refutes claims that the Haymarket Martyrs were Marxists as well as correcting the usual distortions about Kronstadt.

Review: The Bolsheviks in Power

Review of a new book on the first year of Bolshevik power. Documents the Bolshevik assault on soviet democracy and the opposition.

How the Revolution was Lost?

A critique of the standard Leninist account of the degeneration of the Russian Revolution, using the SWP's How the Revolution was Lost (by Chris Harman) as its basis.

How Revolutions must not be made

A review of Goldman's account of her experiences in Russia, plus a review of a classic collection of Kropotkin' essays. Both contain much wisdom for modern revolutionaries.

1905

Overview of the 1905 Russian revolution, plus an analysis of why Rosa Luxemburg's account of the mass strike is wrong about anarchism.
