IV. The Social Sphere: The Gradualist Approach of Mass Organizations, Counterpowers and Social Insertion
V. The Political Sphere: The Revolutionary Approach of Active Minority as Specific Organization
VI. The Specific Organization
In this pamphlet, I have compiled together many different ideas and tactics which have been present within the anarcho-communist milieu for many years. Therefore, many of the theories and praxis presented here are not necessarily original to this work. For example, the four main principles of Nestor Makhno’s Organizational Platform of the General Union of Anarchists is included and briefly explained here. This is only an attempt to present an introduction to theories and practices in as much of a concise and understandable way as possible.
The intention here is to provide a brief, yet theoretical, framework which can be used by certain individuals to organize, influence, and inspire revolutionary movements within their own respective community. This is always a work in progress, as the anarchist organization (much like the revolution itself) is a process and means to an end.
Feel free to use, critique, or expand upon any of the ideas presented here. Especially if this involves establishing a specific organization of anarchists (or “active minority”), or just for ideas on implementing tactics such as social insertion, etc.
