(en) Itali, New FDCA downloadable pamphlet: "What A State To Be In"

Date Wed, 14 Dec 2005 18:41:22 +0200

"A little history never hurt anyone! The beast that is the modern State was
born over two centuries ago and was closely connected with the emergence of the
bourgeoisie as the new dominant class. It is not by chance that a large part of
the typical functions of the modern State owe their origins to revolutionary
France in 1789. It is a good idea to examine the reasons behind this profound
transformation of the power structures in society, which social relationships
ceased to exist in order to make way for others, what effects all this had on class
relations and, above all, how the domination of the emerging bourgeoisie came about."
The Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici is pleased to announce the launch of a
new pamphlet in its "Studies for a Libertarian Alternative series, available
for download from its website: What A State To Be In. This pamphlet examines
the development of the modern State, its roles and functions, and was written
by FdCA member Saverio Craparo.
