Anarchists Without Adjectives
The “anarchism without adjectives” designation (the phrase, at least — the concept, as we shall see below, may have originated with Malatesta) was originally the work of two Spanish anarchists, Ricardo Mella and Fernando Tarrida del Marmol.

The Past and Future of the Ladies’ Liberal League
Introduction by Nick Ford Voltairine de Cleyre remains a timeless inspiration to me. There have been days where I’ve felt lost, confused, or even depressed and reading her has brought me peace.

I usually don’t dip my feet into the perilous waters of the gun-control debate for several reasons: I’m not a gun-owner, guns have never interested me as either a pastime or culturally, and having the capacity to end people’s lives easily unnerves me. Be this as it may, I still strongly oppose gun control and Obama’s…
Anarchism and American Traditions
“The revolution is the sudden and unified consciousness of these traditions, their loud assertion, the blow dealt by their indomitable will against the counter force of tyranny. … We, the Anarchists, point to them and say: If the believers in liberty wish the principles of liberty taught, let them never entrust that instruction to any government; for the nature of…
Why I Am an Anarchist
by Voltairine de Cleyre It was suggested to me by those who were the means of securing me this opportunity of addressing you, that probably the most easy and natural way for me to explain Anarchism would be for me to give the reasons why I myself am an Anarchist. I am not sure that they…

Voltairine de Cleyre on “Thing-Worship”
One of my favorite anarchists and writers of all time was recently featured by actress Mary Tuomanen.

Just for some background, the main…
Essere “Una Cosa a Parte” È la Vocazione dello Stato
Voltairine de Cleyre, anarchica senza aggettivi vissuta tra il diciannovesimo e il ventesimo secolo, diceva nel suo saggio “Anarchism and American Traditions” che “…lo stato per sua natura tende a diventare una cosa a parte, un’istituzione che esiste per il proprio bene, che depreda le persone, che insegna tutto ciò che può aiutarlo a mantenere…
