In Defense of Anarchism, In Defense of Anti-Autoritarianism by Ron Tabor, July 28, 1996

A wide-ranging debate within the Love and Rage Revolutionary Anarchist Federation was sparked by Ron Tabor's July 1996 response to another member Chris Day's polemic "The Historical Failure of Anarchism" (https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/chris-day-the-historical-failure-of-anarchism). Tabor, who had been a leader in the Revolutionary Socialist League, also wrote a critique of Lenin and the Bolsheviks "A Look at Leninism". Love and Rage did not survive the fissure and Day's faction soon left the anarchist movement.

This flyer was distributed at the 100,000 strong "Action!Motown" national mass march in Detroit called by the AFL-CIO at the end of the Newspaper Strike there in July 1997. The flyer was one of the few interventions by Love & Rage Revolutionary Anarchist Federation into strikes or the labor movement. It also caused controversy within Love & Rage, and was attempted censored by the NYC-based L&R newspaper editorial group who were rapidly moving away from anarchism and objected to the explicit revolutionary approach of the Detroit intervention.
