110 years of anti-militarist propaganda, from Spain’s last imperialist adventure in 1893, through the First World War right up to the ‘War on Terror’. It includes Randolph Bourne’s classic analysis of why war is the ‘health of the state’ and a recent dissection of the myths of Remembrance Day. Libertarians have opposed the armed forces as the ultimate prop of the state, a pool of scab labour and the place where the authority principle (orders, not logic) runs rampant. Anarchists have always argued that the alternative to dying for our leaders is fighting for a new world. There’s a brief glimpse of how this looks in practice, from the Ukraine’s Makhnovist insurgents to Spain’s revolutionary militias. Libertarian anti-militarists don’t want the kind of peace that is only a breathing space between wars but peace from below. To get all leaders and bosses off our backs, no war but the class war will do!
