Round 2: Name that Anarchist!


As winner of the last round I find it my duty, and personal honor, to sponsor round 2. Hint: Some may call him NUMBER 1.

Here's another hint...

The boys and girls at OTBL would likely call him scum...

Josh said...

The Mayor????

Josh said...

Is he one of the Haymarket 5?

Josh said...

Nope. None of the 'Haymarket 5' have names that start with J. Andy.

I might suggest you try to exchange your public school diploma with a school voucher ;-p

Hint: He helped Benjamin Tucker 'see the light'

I'm in the dark and flunking Anarkology 101. Is he another Josh?

Quoting Wikipedia -
"Josiah Warren (1798-1874) was an individualist anarchist, inventor, musician, and author in the United States. He is widely regarded to be the first American anarchist, and some regard the periodical he edited in 1833, The Peaceful Revolutionist, to be the first anarchist periodical ever published. He is credited by Benjamin Tucker as being one of the originators of the "socialist" criticism of capitalism , who, like Proudhon chose the path of anarchy and individualism over authoritarian state socialism. Tucker dedicated his collection of essays, Instead of a Book, to the memory of Warren, "my friend and master...whose teachings were my first source of light". Tucker says that Warren "was the first man to expound and formulate the doctrine now known as Anarchism."

Rats, my next guess was Luke's mom.

The winner was to receive a free oil change, right?

hehe Unfortunately it was a Starbucks Coffee Drink Card. But since 'Friends don't let friends drink Starbucks' I decided to end the contest before I let you, my friends, win.

I wouldn't want you supporting this semi-capitalistic economy now would I?
