September 25, Yesterday Pope Francis spoke to a joint session of Congress, and in doing so he addressed the America people. He did so not as a politician though he is a head of statebut as a pastor. As a pastor he speaks with a different voice, though he addresses serious political issues.
Origins[ edit ] The earliest anarchist themes can be found in the 6th century BC among the works of Taoist philosopher Laozi  and in later centuries by Zhuangzi and Bao Jingyan. A great brigand becomes a ruler of a Nation". He argued in Political Justice   that government has an inherently malevolent influence on society and that it perpetuates dependency and ignorance.
He thought that the spread of the use of reason to the masses would eventually cause government to wither away as an unnecessary force. Although he did not accord the state with moral legitimacy, he was against the use of revolutionary tactics for removing the government from power.
Rather, he advocated for its replacement through a process of peaceful evolution. He considered the basic foundations of society as constraining the natural development of individuals to use their powers of reasoning to arrive at a mutually beneficial method of social organisation.
In each case, government and its institutions are shown to constrain the development of our capacity to live wholly in accordance with the full and free exercise of private judgement. The French Pierre-Joseph Proudhon is regarded as the first self-proclaimed anarchist, a label he adopted in his groundbreaking work What is Property?
It is for this reason that some claim Proudhon as the founder of modern anarchist theory. His famous quote on the matter is "Liberty is the mother, not the daughter, of order". In What is Property?
However, Proudhon later added that "Property is Liberty" and argued that it was a bulwark against state power. International Workingmen's Association and Paris Commune Anarchist Mikhail Bakunin opposed the Marxist aim of dictatorship of the proletariat in favour of universal rebellion and allied himself with the federalists in the First International before his expulsion by the Marxists  In Europe, harsh reaction followed the revolutions ofduring which ten countries had experienced brief or long-term social upheaval as groups carried out nationalist uprisings.
After most of these attempts at systematic change ended in failure, conservative elements took advantage of the divided groups of socialistsliberals and nationalists along with anarchists to prevent further revolt. According to George Woodcock: Due to its links to active workers' movements, the International became a significant organisation.
Karl Marx became a leading figure in the International and a member of its General Council. Proudhon's followers, the mutualistsopposed Marx's state socialismadvocating political abstentionism and small property holdings. At first, the collectivists worked with the Marxists to push the First International in a more revolutionary socialist direction.
Subsequently, the International became polarised into two camps, with Marx and Bakunin as their respective figureheads. Thus only a tiny minority of anarchists was present, and the General Council's resolutions passed almost unanimously. Most of them were clearly directed against Bakunin and his followers".
In response, the federalist sections formed their own International at the St. Imier Congressadopting a revolutionary anarchist programme. Anarchists participated actively in the establishment of the Paris Commune. As for the reforms initiated by the Commune, such as the re-opening of workplaces as co-operatives, anarchists can see their ideas of associated labour beginning to be realised.
Moreover, the Commune's ideas on federation obviously reflected the influence of Proudhon on French radical ideas. The Commune's vision of a communal France based on a federation of delegates bound by imperative mandates issued by their electors and subject to recall at any moment echoes Bakunin's and Proudhon's ideas Proudhon, like Bakunin, had argued in favour of the "implementation of the binding mandate" in and for federation of communesthus both economically and politically the Paris Commune was heavily influenced by anarchist ideas.

The incident became known as the Haymarket affair and was a setback for the labour movement and the struggle for the eight-hour day. Ina second attempt—this time international in scope—to organise for the eight-hour day was made. The event also had the secondary purpose of memorialising workers killed as a result of the Haymarket affair.
Various themes were treated during the Congress, in particular concerning the organisation of the anarchist movement, popular education issues, the general strike or antimilitarism.
A central debate concerned the relation between anarchism and syndicalism or trade unionism. Malatesta and Monatte were in particular disagreement themselves on this issue as the latter thought that syndicalism was revolutionary and would create the conditions of a social revolution while Malatesta did not consider syndicalism by itself sufficient.
Malatesta warned that the syndicalists aims were in perpetuating syndicalism itself, whereas anarchists must always have anarchy as their end and consequently refrain from committing to any particular method of achieving it.
