"Computers and Anarchism" by Paul Rabin is comically terrible as well as being very dated.

The John Hewetson article is very peculiar. On the plus side, it makes some surprisingly forward thinking points for the early 1950s when it was written. The general point that ridding society of sexual repression will have many wide-ranging benefits is good. The specific point that this alone will prevent the killing of children seems... optimistic. Its focus on the sexual freedom of children on the island of Trobriand is interesting but quite narrow and begs the question of the other aspects of that society and this, and what bearing they might have on sexuality, freedom, oppression and violence.

I couldn't be arsed with the articles on geography and criminology.
