It's another introductory anarchist text buckos! Come read the best known work by the dude who fucked Emma Goldman and almost assassinated one of the porkiest porkys ever to pork.

No poll is currently open, but check out the book club to look at previous reads or make suggestions. >>111111

>fucking Emma Goldmann

yea no.

nowadays that's one regret fuck away from a false rape allegation.

would prefer more books on Anarchist revolutionaries that had no ties. the Anarch, as Junger and Nechayev stated, has no earthly bounds.

nothing more dangerous than a man with nothing to lose.

No need to get bitchy at him, just tell him not to participate in this weeks book club if he's autistic enough to get asshurt over the author having fucked a feminist once who isn't related to the scripture at all.

>Emma Goldman

>feminist

She specifically was not. She criticized feminism strongly and now anarcho feminists appropriate her to try making their ideology appear rehabilitated. This is like thinking MLK would support black capitalism.

Now get ye gone to the containment thread.

It is mostly dead. Who would want to join a leftist bookclub in a place where the mods refuse to take out the garbage, and in fact throw their own garbage all over the place while also banning people when they try to take out the trash themselves?

Maybe we should rejuvenate the list like another anon suggested in the main thread >>124170

Shorter works seem to get more traffic so maybe stick to pamphlets until this has legs. That and the list has been pretty heavy on anarchist texts specifically. I know the board leans anarcho but it's good to read stuff you disagree with and it could make this more attractive to other tendencies.

>>125606

I'm a very slow reader too. Was planning on writing thorough responses/summaries but I don't have the time to do that. I read faster if I read out loud, weirdly, so I've been thinking about making audiobooks for these, since it's basically just turning on a mic and doing some editing on top of what I normally do.


 No.125795

>>125725

Does the polling website have a max number of entries? If not I don't really see the point of rejuvenating the list. I agree to shorter and more diverse texts, would like to read Critique of the Gotha Program.

>Does the polling website have a max number of entries?

I don't think so.

>If not I don't really see the point of rejuvenating the list.

I think the idea was more to force some new stuff since the other stuff wasn't selected. If we sort by runners-up, they'll be at the top, and that does bias the poll.

>I agree to shorter and more diverse texts, would like to read Critique of the Gotha Program.

Yeah, I liked the idea of having smaller texts on rotation every week with larger ones rotating slower so people can pick a pace/depth they're more comfy with.

That reminds me of when /pol/ split a while back, and the new board was populated by the more well-read of the lot. They tried to start a book club, but all of their books were sci-fi novels and self-help books. It was a fucking riot.

>I think the idea was more to force some new stuff since the other stuff wasn't selected

That was it, I'd prefer to see new blood and think mixing up choices is better for that than moving down the list which seems to be what happened. I guess now would be the time to post suggestions in the book club thread, but my general beliefs have dominated all of our readings so I'm hesitant to post more libertarian communist suggestions to keep the book club nominally unbiased with regards to socialist ideology.

>I liked the idea of having smaller texts on rotation every week with larger ones rotating slower so people can pick a pace/depth they're more comfy with.

I disagree, I think the current scheme works well enough and that seems open to the longer books being neglected. We are workers after all and finding time to read anything is difficult when you are stuck being a wage laborer.

It's not our fault if other ideologies don't post literature though.


 No.125868

>>125865

Yeah, but I'd like to see more anons, preferably some kind of libcom, post ideas. I'll go ahead and post some recs in the book club thread here in a bit.

>Initially supportive of that country's October Revolution that brought the Bolsheviks to power, Goldman changed her opinion in the wake of the Kronstadt rebellion; she denounced the Soviet Union for its violent repression of independent voices.
