Do you know any historical documents where #Anarchist s react to the "International Exhibition" (Worlds Fair) before 1938? I.e. the Barcelona Exhibition of 1888?
i heard rumors of #IWW members visiting the on in 1915 to learn about assembly line technologies and motorized farming equipment. And that french anarchists visited them in Paris and Brussels. But maybe someone can point a direction.
Actually i am surprised,
i never really liked Gaston Leval (but i can not remember a reason), but this article has so much about why i chose about 5/6 years ago to go with libertarian #socialist instead of #anarchist / #syndicalist:
it is strange for me, that people have difficulties to imagine a #society system for a time after #capitalism. as if it is a one-person-thing to do. as if a transition to an other thing is only a thing of voluntary wishing/imagination. a new society is about #organising #needs and #interests, without surplus creation in production or through market mediation. if you say you do not know your needs and interests, that is not a problem of #anarchist society. #AnarchyMonday
The thing most #anarchist s and even #syndicalists get wrong about the #spanish #civil #war / #revolution is, that the important thing to learn from it is less between 1936-39 (beside there are tons of material to learn from). The most important thing to learn is, that it was a #learning #process of more than 70 years until it happenend (and they did try earlier a lot of times).
