(en) Czech, AFED: Kropotkin centenary 2021 [machine translation]

Date Sun, 17 Jan 2021 08:28:58 +0200


This year we dedicate to the commemoration of the centenary of the death of the anarchist thinker Petr Kropotkin. ---- Many will remember that seven years ago, we came up with one article from the Bakunin2014 series on our website every month . It was a reminder of two hundred years since the birth of the famous anarchist revolutionary. At the same time, we published the issue of the anarchist magazine Existence dedicated to Mikhail Bakunin. We want to realize something similar this year as well. This marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the anarchist thinker Petr Alexeyevich Kropotkin. ---- Kropotkin was born on December 9, 1842 in Moscow into a family of an ancient princely family. He studied at the Page Institute, after which he became the chamberlain of Alexander II. In 1968 he received the rank of officer and left to serve in the Amur Cossack army. Then he leaves for Siberia, where he is engaged in scientific and social activities (participating in geographical expeditions). In 1867 he moved to St. Petersburg, where he took a job at the university, and a year later he was elected a member of the Russian Geographical Society. In 1872, on his way to Switzerland, he met the followers of his compatriot Mikhail Bakunin and moved to the position of anarchism. After returning to Russia, he engages in anarchist propaganda, joins a circle of "teapots", after which he is arrested and imprisoned in the Peter and Paul Fortress. In 1876, he escaped from a prison hospital and fled abroad. During his 40 years in exile, he became one of the most important figures in the anarchist movement - speaking at meetings, attending the Congress of the Anarchist International and public events, writing promotional publications and founding newspapers. In 1881 he was expelled from Switzerland for his activities. Two years later, although not guilty, he was sentenced to five years in prison, but in 1886 he was released prematurely under public pressure and left for England. In the following years, his best-known works are based on both science (especially geography) and anarchist theory. Among his most famous writings is Two years later, although not guilty, he was sentenced to five years in prison, but in 1886 he was released prematurely under public pressure and left for England. In the following years, his best-known works are based on both science (especially geography) and anarchist theory. Among his most famous writings is Two years later, although not guilty, he was sentenced to five years in prison, but in 1886, under public pressure, he was released prematurely and left for England. In the following years, his best-known works are based on both science (especially geography) and anarchist theory. Among his most famous writings isCongregation , Bu row and No. ovy of e No and , Pole, d s LNY tov and plated in reverse to , the Anarchist morality , Sou No asn plated in of da and anarchy and many others. After the February Revolution of 1917, he returned to Russia, but his influence on the Russian people was soon limited by the Bolshevik government - he was evicted from Moscow to Dimitrov. In his letters, he still tries to warn workers in Europe against the Bolshevik dictatorship - but in vain. Soon, on February 8, 1921, he died. His funeral was for decades the only mass gathering of Russian anarchists.

In terms of formulating the philosophical foundations of the anarchist movement, Kropotkin was one of his most important personalities. As a science-oriented scholar, he projected a peculiar interpretation of evolution into his theoretical work, which protected the vision of a future just society. He argued with social Darwinism, against which he opposed cooperation and mutual assistance as a basic evolutionary element. In his interpretations, however, he sought not only the theoretical concept of anarcho-communism, but also its anchoring in key areas of life.
