Okay, so it’s kind of late for this, but it’s still 12/21 here in California and I’ve had a crazy kind of day. It’s amazing I’ve got any work done at all. If anarchists were immortal, Peter Alekseevich Kropotkin would be 165 years old today. I’ve always been open with y’all that I haven’t read much of the historical work on anarchy, but Kropotkin I’m somewhat familiar with. Sure, he was an anarcho-communist, but nobody’s perfect 😉 And, he was quite possibly the most influential anarchist writer of all time. In honor of his birthday I went looking for more information about him on the web and what should I find? Kropotkin’s Collected Works all available for online reading thanks to Dana Ward, Professor of Political Studies at Pitzer College.

So next time you find yourself with a little spare time, or in the need for some enlightenment, swing on by the Anarchy Archives, wish Comrade Kropotkin a Happy Birthday, and get some hardcore learnin’ goin’ on.
