(Our prior event on Kropotkin in June, unfortunately, didn't occur due to technical issues: this one should work!)

On the subject of the Protected content revolution, we've been conditioned to focus our main attention on names like Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin, leaders of Russia's Bolshevik Party. Both the USSR and its enemies wanted it that way, ensuring other ideas and participants were eliminated from the narrative. This series of online discussions will uncover some of these 'lost' figures from history who arguably deserve our reconsideration today.

First on our list is Peter Kropotkin, the famous Russian biologist, geographer, and anarchist theorist. In anarchism, he is best known for The Conquest of Bread and Mutual Aid, writings that across the Russian Empire in Protected content much more popular and widely read/discussed than Marx, Engels or Lenin.

These two books remain remarkable in their modernity. The Conquest of Bread has been the inspiration for free, bottom-up communist experiments from the Spanish revolution to Rojava in Syria today, while people may have noticed that the international network of Covid-19 self-help groups is known as 'Mutual Aid'. This association is no accident.
