Sample text

The object of anarchism, on the other hand, is to extend the principle of equity until it altogether super­ sedes statutory law . . Admittedly a system of equity, no less than a system of law, implies a machinery for determining and administering its principles. I can imagine no society which does not embody some method of arbitration. But just as the judge in equity is supposed to appeal to universal principles of reason , and to ignore statutory law when it comes into conflict with these principles, so the arbiter in an anarchist community will ap­ peal to these same principles, as determined by philosophy or common sense; and will do so unimpeded by all those legal and economic prejudices which the present organization of society entails .

I n sum, they are offering us the makings of another nice little world war in twenty-five or thirty years-if the people of the world are not capable of constituting a true League of Peoples which would guarantee peace and organize the world through social revolu­ tion everywhere. On the other hand, what do the apostles of the "national revolution" have to of­ fer us? They offer a revolution in reverse, which would throw humanity back to the darkest times of its existence, into an abyss of racial and religious fanaticism, a total slavery of the labouring masses and an absolute obliteration of the individual.
