(en) anarkismo.net: The guillotine at work by Dmitri (ed.) - MACG (personal capacity)

Date Mon, 25 May 2020 09:37:48 +0300


The guillotine at work - The anarchists in the Russian revolution and the Leninist counter-revolution - Translation: George Martikas - Editing: Costas Despiniadis. Panoptikon Publications, Thessaloniki, May 2020. ---- "Why should one survive if it is not to survive for those who have not survived?" V. Serz wonders in the Memoirs of a Revolutionary. ---- So one had to record those times, the dead had to speak, their memory, their works, their hopes, their anxieties, their testimonies had to be saved, so that they would not be lost in the gloomy abyss of oblivion. This is what Maximov is doing with this book. He is trying to save the past of the October Revolution as he and his Anarchist comrades did. ---- The October Revolution is not the subject of a hagiographic exaggeration, it does not have a mythical cover, it is an event of world-historical significance that eventually degenerated and suffered political, social and moral destruction. Maximov describes the seeds of this development, decisively different from those "uniformed intellectuals" who, as historians, were not interested in understanding the past but in the skilful manipulation of the present; critics of the present and believed that people can freely change the past at will since they believed that the difference between truth and falsehood is not objective Other simple strength, cunning and enforcement.

In his work, Maximov - who dedicates himself to the Russian people's struggle for freedom, humanity and justice - reminds us of the ubiquitous need for freedom and ensures that the actions of his undefeated comrades who fought to the end are not lost. do not let revolutionary ideas fall into words without content.
