A detailed and critical look at anarchism as a praxis from a councilist viewpoint, written by a member of the Brisbane Self-Management Group (SMG), Greg George. It was published as a pamphlet by the SMG in about the mid-1970s. The SMG were a councilist/libertarian socialist group in the tradition of Solidarity (UK) and Socialisme ou Barbarie (France).
THIS ESSAY IS AIMED AT DISCOVERING ANARCHISM’S RELEVANCE TO MODERN SOCIETY. IT TAKES THE BASIC CRITICISM OF ANARCHISM AND DISCUSSES A NUMBER OF POINTS FLOWING FROM THEM. IT THEN DISCUSSES AREAS WHERE ANARCHISM WAS INADEQUATE AND MUST BE SUPERCEDED. (FOOTNOTES HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THE TEXT ENCLOSED IN BRACKETS.)
