What do Lucy Parsons, Noam Chomsky, and Ursula LeGuin have in common? How would a society based upon reciprocity, mutual aid, and solidarity function? Could our economy actually be managed by workers themselves? Join us for the second session of a new bi-weekly Madison Free Skool series, co-hosted by the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), the Peregrine Forum, and the Madison Infoshop. We’ll be reading Rudolf Rocker’s classic 1938 book, Anarcho-Syndicalism, along with discussion of other more contemporary readings and perspectives. Copies of the 2006 AK Press edition of Rocker’s book are available for purchase at Rainbow, the text is also available online at https://libcom.org/files/Rocker%20-%20Anarcho-Syndicalism%20Theory%20and%20Practice.pdf ) This class is whatever the participants wish it to be, so bring your own thoughts to stimulate the conversation! Our final class date is Dec. 16th, but we could also continue the series into the new year if there is enough interest.
