"If history teaches us anything, it is that war, like no other activity of the State, decimates anarchist movements. Not only does war create a breach in libertarian ranks (between those who endorse governmental involvement in war and those who don't), the State inevitably uses the patriotic fervor stimulated by war to crack down on dissent during times of military conflict. The purpose of this essay is to demonstrate the fundamental anti-war position of anarchism and to shew how the war issue divided and depleted anarchist ranks during World War I." (02/17/11)
