“The world is at a loss for a way out. Parliamentarism and democracy are on the decline. Salvation is being sought in Fascism and other forms of “strong” government.”
Accessible, humorous, impassioned, and strangely relevant to our present day: here are collected some of the best short pieces by Emma Goldman, once famously regarded as “the most dangerous woman in America.”
To a world grown weary of financial inequality, endless wars, rampant injustice, and atrocities committed in the name of profit and along our borders, Goldman still offers a very different vision for human societies, at once wildly idealistic, profoundly humane, and firmly rooted in the practical matters of daily life. Now is the perfect time to revisit this most radical of American dreamers.
