Help Us Fund Radical Activist Writers
Dear friends, anarchists, people of conscience, people of earth,
We write this in the midst of a shock wave of horrific evidence of not just the re-emergence but the emboldened offensive surge of proto-fascist populism, white supremacy, misogyny and xenophobia in the United States and around the world.
We can’t keep quiet, we can’t sit down, we can’t step back, we can’t give up. There’s no more important time than now to promote alternative ways of thinking, acting, resisting oppression, prefiguring radical egalitarianism and collective liberation.
Which for us at IAS, means there’s no more urgent time than now to further the development of anarchist theory and praxis, toward activating it in reality. Historical awareness of precedents, continuities, genealogies, and systemic patterns can help us.
So can sharp political and social analyses of structural conditions. So can anti-authoritarian cultural and psychological interpretation. Not least, so can audaciously visionary imaginations of a different world.
We want to keep helping to facilitate activist writers to explore and articulate that kind of research, that kind of vision. For that, of course, we need funding.
It’s been our great honor to receive a $1000 bequest from the estate of Howard Ehrlich (1932-1915), anarchist scholar, sociologist, supporter of activist research, founder and editor of Social Anarchism: A Journal of Theory and Practice since 1980, author of books including The Best of Social Anarchism, Hate Crimes and Ethnoviolence, and Reinventing Anarchism Again.

We stand on the shoulders of a crazy-ass circus pyramid of revolutionaries; with your help we can build it even more mindbogglingly skyward with more and more people pitching in to hold each other up, carrying on work in new directions that can make IAS donors like Howard Ehrlich and Noam Chomsky proud, honoring elders who made anarchism a lifelong commitment, by trying not to fuck it up for generations to come.
