Overview

Completed in April 1918, "in the last days before a period of imprisonment," 'The Proposed Roads to Freedom' contains Bertrand Russell's astute political commentary on anarchism, socialism, and syndicalism. Russell begins with a historical overview of socialism and anarchism, the teachings and organizations of Marx and Bakunin, and the syndicalist revolt against socialism. He then turns to more pressing problems of the future, and how these movements could contribute to reconstruction after the war. Although he has criticism for each movement, Russell respected what they attempted to achieve. "What is new in Socialism and Anarchism is that close relations of the ideal to the present sufferings of men, which has enabled powerful political movements to grow out of the hopes of solitary thinkers. It is this that makes Socialism and Anarchism important, and it is this that makes them dangerous to those who batten, consciously or unconsciously, upon the evils of our present order of society."

Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) was a mathematician, philosopher, pacifist, and winner of the 1950 Nobel Prize for literature. As a president of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, he opposed war and nuclear weapons and also advocated world government and peacemaking. The Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation was created in 1963 and it publishes a journal, 'The Spokesman'.

    I'm trying not to get burdened with roleplay again. I can be found at OT or maybe Bloodclan. Mainly OT. I revived my old character East there.

    1. I can get on almost all the time, but I don't post unless there's something I can/ feel like responding to. Or unless I forget. Eh, if someone from the old Wolfclan comes, they can do it I guess.<p>
    2. Can we be villian buddies? :> <p>
    3. Can't open the file on my Nook. <p>
    4. I can try to do that, but there's no promises that some noobs won't bug us.<p>
    5. Um... dunno. Gonna skip five.<p>6. It's kind of hard to get a large income of new members these days. Or at least, good ones.<p>
    7. Love Owl City. :D <p>
    8. The reasons we can't just advertise: Agreed. We can just kick out noobs. If they refuse, we'll ignore them until they get bored and leave. Attacks are fun. I like those. <p>
    9. Eh. I don't really know anyone anymore.

    Her mouth again spread into a a sneering grin. She let her eyes wander as she inspected the camp nonchalantly, speaking as she walked. "I see your 'leader' has you on a pretty tight leash," she remarked snidely as she padded past him, then sat flicking her tail impatiently as if she had just arrived. "Quite a place you've got here," she mused, tilting her head. Her scent was peculiar and wild, different smells intermingling. None of it was familiar, and she seemed like she didn't come from a clan at all.

    Flame clan was not a valid search, and necromancer was sketchy and unidentifyable.

    "That thick-headed mousebrain has got to learn he can't always pin misfortunes on someone else." She shook her head disapprovingly, her neck bent downward ever so slightly.

    Scorched

    A tom watches the cats from a high clifftop. His pale grey fur is blackened over much of his left side, and some of the fur is missing completely, revealing nasty red-black scars. The cat looks around disdainfully, his green right eye and his unnaturally reddish brown left eye scanning the area. He appears to find the object, because he smirks before impatiently leaving, limping ever-so-slightly on his front left paw, which is missing one toe. <p>
    (So, what d'you think of my villain? His left side was blasted by an explosion of flame - that's all the history I have so far.)
