Anarchism The history of human growth and development is at the same time the history of the terrible struggle of every new idea heralding the approach of a brighter dawn In its tenacious hold on tradition the Old has never hesitated to make use of the foulest and cruelest means to stay the advent of the New in whatever form or period the latter may have asserted itself Nor need we retrace our steps into the distant past to realize the enormity of opposition difficulties and hardships placed in the path of every progressive idea The rack the thumbscrew and the knot are still with us so are the convicts garb and the social wrath all conspiring against the spirit that is serenely marching on Anarchism could not hope to escape the fate of all other ideas of innovation Indeed as the most revolutionary and uncompromising innovator Anarchism must needs meet with the combined ignorance and venom of the world it aims to reconstruct To deal even remotely with all that is being said and done against Anarchism would necessitate the writing of a whole volume I shall therefore meet only two of the principal objections In so doing I shall attempt to elucidate what Anarchism really stands for The strange phenomenon of the opposition to Anarchism is that it brings to light the relation between so-called intelligence and ignorance And yet this is not so very strange when we consider the relativity of all things The ignorant mass has in its favor that it makes no pretense of knowledge or tolerance Acting as it always does by mere impulse its reasons are like those of a child Why Because Yet the opposition of the uneducated to Anarchism deserves the same consideration as that of the intelligent man What then are the objections First Anarchism is impractical though a beautiful ideal Second Anarchism stands for violence and destruction hence it must be repudiated as vile
