Transcript ( M ) anarchist morality is represented in this example. It is the morality of a people which does not look for the sun at midnight —a morality without compulsion or authority, a morality of habit. Let us create circumstances in which man shall not be led to deceive nor exploit others, and then by the very force of things the moral level of humanity will rise to a height hitherto unknown. Men are certainly not to be moralised bj~ teaching them a moral catechism : tribunals and prisons do not diminish vice ; they pour it over society in floods. Men are to be moralised only by placing them in a position which shall contribute to develop in them those habits which are social, and to weaken those which are not so. A morality which has become instinctive is the true morality, the only morality which endures while religions and systems of philosophy pass away. Let us now combine the three preceding elements, and we shall have Anarchy and its place in Socialistic Evolution. Emancipation of the producer from the- yoke of capital; production in common and free consumption of all the products of the common labour. Emancipation from the governmental yoke ; free development of individuals in groups and federations ; free organisation ascending from the simple to the complex, according to mutual needs and tendencies. Emancipation from religious morality ; free morality, without compulsion or authority, developing itself from social life and becoming habitual. The above is no dream of students, it is a conclusion which results from an analysis of the tendencies of modern society : Anarchist Communism is the union of the two fundamental tendencies of our society—a tendency towards economic equality, and a tendency towards political liberty. So long as Communism presented itself under an authoritarian form, which necessarily implies government, armed with much greater power than that which it possesses to-day, inasmuch as it implies economic in addition to political power—so long as this was the case, Communism met with no sufficient response. Before 1848 it could, indeed, sometimes excite for a moment the enthusiasm of the worker who was prepared to submit to any all-powerful government, provided it would release him from the terrible situation in which he was placed, but it left the true friends of liberty indifferent. Anarchist Communism maintains that most valuable of all conquests—individual liberty—and moreover extends it and gives it a solid basis—economic libertv—without which political
