No more judges! Liberty, equality, and practical human sympathy are the only effectual barriers we can oppose to the anti-social instincts of certain among us. This is not to say that these issues are not raised at all, but rather that they are mostly addressed in theoretical terms and not by way of concrete examples or working models. While specific regulations may vary from society to society, some form of regulation is always necessary.
Aside from legal codes, there exist in all societies what can be called codes of convention. The force of these codes is perhaps greater than the force of laws. The fundamental difference is that these codes are based on a collective accord. Written law represents a generally unsuccessful substitute for a universal understanding of ethical principles.
If we do allow collective intervention, how do we keep it from becoming authoritarian and destructive of individual liberty? In short, how do we avoid the pitfalls of law and the state while preserving the integrity of our communities? Specifically, Barclay is objecting to the work of writers such as Thom Holterman and Henc van Maarseveen, who published an influential anthology titled Law and Anarchism. The anarchist political order implies the existence of a system of legal rules. An anarchist society is clearly different from a state society in that in it there would be no penal sanctions—no law.
The norms of a free society resemble neither in spirit nor in form the laws of contemporary society. These norms will not seek the detachment of the individual from the collectivity. Anarchist norms will not be a torrent of decrees from a higher authority. To be sure, there is a palpable sense of caution and even respectability in the language of Restorative Justice that is largely lacking in The Struggle to be Human.
In other words, where their younger selves had no compunction against resorts to hyperbolic language and straightforward calls for revolutionary praxis, the latter versions appear more concerned with developing the nature of the vision more keenly before issuing such plaintive calls. But again, this is not to imply that the fervor has waned, only perhaps that it has sharpened its focus in terms of what it has stood against and as to what it will stand for.
In fact, this might be considered an important evolution of both the anarchist and criminal justice dialogues, in the sense of extending the historical arc of Godwin, Kropotkin, Ward, et al. When such collaboration takes place, we experience the beginnings of a restorative community, of a political economy of peace and democracy.
In this sense, the project has not lost any of its radicalism but instead seems to have begun to come to terms with the sheer magnitude of its aim. So let me be clear that the principles espoused by the later Sullivan and Tifft do not reflect an accommodation or appeasement. B ut if it is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then I say, break the law. They have bound themselves to obey laws which they do not will, and indeed even laws which they vigorously reject.

He traces the evolution of nationalism, and the creation of a centralised state with the race theory as its base, to its logical conclusion in Nazi Germany. Also examined is the use of religion by kings and rulers as a tool in the exploitation of their subjects and the use of state power by religious leaders to cement their control. Written during the Spanish revolution by a participant. Skirda argues that the core problem for anarchists has been to create a revolutionary movement and envision a future society in which the autonomy of the individual is not compromised by the need to take collective action.
