SA1030 | A Critique of Anarchist Communism | Ken Knudson
A Critique of Anarchist Communism by Ken Knudson has finally been printed as intended nearly a half-century after it was written. Bill Dwyer, Editor of the British journal Anarchy, commissioned the essay 1971, but the publication went under before it saw print. Libertarian Analysis sought to publish this essay, but the American quarterly also folded just before it was to appear. A mere excerpt was published in The Voluntaryist by Carl Watner in 1983, but the full essay remained unpublished. Svein Olav Nyberg broke the curse in 1992 when he serialized it across twelve issues of his Egoist e-zine Non Serviam. The essay was then published in parts by egoist-feminist Wendy McElroy at her website wendymcelroy.com. A Critique of Anarchist Communism argues that “Anarchist Communism” is a contradiction in terms. Knudson argues as an Egoist Anarchist inspired by the writings of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, William B. Greene, Benjamin R. Tucker and Max Stirner. A Critique of Anarchist Communism opens wide the divide between socialism and individualism. This issue of the Stand Alone journal finally publishes the original essay as a single work, with a new Foreword by Mr. Knudson.
"We recommend this small book, but in a forlorn sense... it is... too late." Fred Woodworth, The Match, Spring 2018 (No. 118)
