Hey Mr. Militant Man! Dig your blog. Someone should give you an advanced graduate degree for all that heavy reading you've done!

I have been very fond of the preoccupation found in Marxist Humanism, but I have just posted some terrible news about the bigotry of Karl Marx… Please stop by and offer your thoughts if you like, some as well read as you must have some nice things to say

I am intimidated and shamed every time I see these reading lists. :(

I found your blog while searching for militant pacifism. I wondered if there would be a hit, and here you are!

Some very interesting reads you've listed here, and I'm interested in tracking down a few for myself, for next year's reading. I've only just become interested in anarchism in recent years, being introduced to it with Henry David Thoreau and moving toward the worldview in my studies of Stoicism and reading Emma Goldman. Around the same time I've also studied Gandhighri and have become interested in the kind of love that he, Buddha, and Jesus were said to espouse and live by.

Thank you for sharing your recent reads.

Regarding your pick: Ans to Job. i was struck by it being written just after the Holocaust, something I had not taken note of going in. “We have experienced things so unheard of and so staggering that the question of whether such things are in any way reconcilable with the idea of a good God has become burningly topical. It is no longer a problem for experts in theological seminaries, but a universal religious nightmare....” he writes.

Belonging to one of the groups victimized during that time, (jehovah's Witnesses, non-war participants to their core) and already having an interest in the Book of Job, I wrote my own brief post.


Answer to Job is included in The Portable Jung, ed Jos Campbell. I've had it lying around forever, but only recently got around to reading it.
