We Live To Tread On Kings.

     Spreading anarchist ideas is obviously the way to  get them picked up by the public at large. The more we make them available the more we will see the general public engage with those ideas. Like the corporate world says, "It pays to advertise". With Stuart Christie giving us The Anarchist Film Archive, this can be enriched by such sites as The Anarchist Library, and now a revamped site that list anarchist texts for printing and distributing, Library Anarhija, well worth a visit. Then of course, at a more local level we have an archive here in Glasgow gathering and preserving the history of the struggles of the ordinary people of the city and the Clydeside area, Spirit of Revolt. We learn from our history.
      All wonderful resources that we should use extensively in our attempt to raise awareness of the rich possibilities of anarchist ideas.
      Of course there are many, many more, such resources, and we should use them freely, however, never forgetting the need for positive action in our communities, our workplaces and our streets.  
A text from Library Anarhija: 

‘O gentlemen, the time of life is short;…
And if we live, we live to tread on kings;’
