New Era Anarchism

Philosophy does not just tell us what to believe. It also helps us improve our thinking by improving our ability to be reasonable. This is not just by having rules that tell us what forms of reasoning are appropriate, like we learn in logic classes. It also helps us through practice. The almost eight pages of “Personal Philosophy of Life”, is followed by “Living my Life”, by the Anarchist Emma Goldman, also called “Red Emma”. The last is public domain as written by herself previous century, in January 1931.

I open my Ebook of 205 pages with the words of Emma Goldman about Anarchism:

 

Anarchism, then really stands for the liberation of the human mind from the dominion of religion; the liberation of the human body from the dominion of property; liberation from the shackles and restraint of government. Anarchism stands for social order based on the free grouping of individuals for the purpose of producing real social wealth, an order that will guarantee to every human being free access to the earth and full enjoyment of the necessities of life, according to individual desires, tastes, and inclinations.” “Emma Goldman Quote”

 

And is followed by a study of mine: “The Problematical Worlds of Ours.”

 It is essential that all thinking Anarchists should give time and thought to the consideration of the major world problems today with which we are now confronted. Some of them can be solved with relative rapidity—given common sense and a correctly appreciated self-interest; others will require foresighted planning and a long patience as, one by one, the necessary steps are taken, leading to the readjustment of human values and the inauguration of new attitudes of mind regarding right human relations and the will to good.

Russia during Red Emma’s Days

 

by

 

Philippe L. De Coster, B.Th., D.D.

 

Humanity is today as it was even in the twentieth century more sensitive to ideas than ever before, and this is why the many ideologies, and for this reason, in defence of their plans, even the most recalcitrant of the nations has to discover some idealistic excuse to put before the other nations when occupied with any infringement of recognised law.Conscription had been introduced in the U.S. for the first time, and Goldman saw it as an attack on freedom. She spoke out against it and was immediately arrested and imprisoned. After the end of the war in 1919, she was deported to her native Russia by the federal government.

 

By this time the Communist revolution had taken place and Goldman fully expected to experience the “workers’ paradise” she had heard so much about. Instead, she discovered not only repression, but also an unpleasantly anti-Semitic atmosphere. Emma Goldman criticized the undemocratic nature of Lenin’s rule and became increasingly disillusioned with the Soviet state.

The Social Significance of the Modern Drama

 

By Emma Goldman

 

Anarchism, History, Drama, Bernard Shaw, Philosophy

Plays have many different elements or aspects, which means that you should have lots of different options for focusing your analysis. Playwrights—writers of plays—are called “wrights” because this word means “builder.” Just as shipwrights build ships, playwrights build plays. A playwright’s raw materials are words, but to create a successful play, he or she must also think about the performance—about what will be happening on stage with sets, sounds, actors, etc. To put it another way: the words of a play have their meanings within a larger context—the context of the production. When you watch or read a play, think about how all of the parts work (or could work) together. 

Emma Goldman writes in her foreword:

In order to understand the social and dynamic significance of modern dramatic art it is necessary, I believe, to ascertain the difference between the functions of art for art's sake and art as the mirror of life.

Art for art's sake presupposes an attitude of aloofness on the part of the artist toward the complex struggle of life: he must rise above the ebb and tide of life. He is to be merely an artistic conjurer of beautiful forms, a creator of pure fancy.  

That is not the attitude of modern art, which is preeminently the reflex, the mirror of life. The artist being a part of life cannot detach himself from the events and occurrences that pass panorama-like before his eyes, impressing themselves upon his emotional and intellectual vision.
