from The Life of the Theatre 93

The view that people are bad (the concept of the Fall of Man) and that therefore we have to have law and government and money is not the view of the people but of the ruling class, foisted on us by a corrupt priesthood to maintain the elite and their priests in their position of power.

If, as Gandhi says, capital engenders greediness and competitiveness as characters traits, might anarcho-communism engender generosity and cooperation? The theory of the revolution is not based on the idea that human character is ‘good’, but that if we change the conditions in which we function, our character will change.
