Legalise it

Article from 1994 arguing that possession of small amounts of all drugs should be de-criminalised. Anti- social drugs like heroin should be available on prescription from doctors at low cost to prevent junkies turning to crime to finance their habit. What is needed is a real debate on the control of the other drugs. It seems reasonable to say that the maximum of restrictions should be similar to those applying in relation to drink or tobacco and this should be medically based and enforced rather than state controlled.

Red Emma and the Reds

A reply to a Leninist (ISO) article on Emma Goldman and her politics. It corrects the distortions and selective quoting, as well as showing her support for syndicalism. It shows that rather than being an elitist individualist, her politics were about collective class struggle while defending individuality. In other words, like all communist-anarchists, her ideas were rooted in both solidarity and freedom. It shows that it is the Leninist tradition which is elitist, before concluding that Goldman's politics have important ideas for modern radicals.

Louise Michel: "If you are not cowards, kill me!"

A review of a book on that remarkable anarchist activist, Louise Michel. Sadly marred by an obvious, and utterly unnecessary, biasis for Marxism, it fails to do justice to her ideas and her life.

How wars end - A brief history of resistance to war

Soldiers council of the Prinzregent LuitpoldThe history of resistance to war, often by those soldiers and sailors conscripted to fight it is always buried when our rulers celebrate their historic achievements in sending workers off to kill each other.   From the mutinies of World War One, WWII and Vietname to the general strike of the Tragic Week against Spanish imperialism it is important to remember that we can and have ended the bloody wars imposed on us by our rulers. (Image soldiers council of the Prinzregent Luitpold who with others organised the mutiny that ended World War One).
